Container clip for random media
It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
- General info
- Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
- Product clip
- Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
- ... and so on
Random Playlist and Sub-Playlist Restrictions are here!
You can now set Random Playback for any Playlist; just go into the Playlist detail and active the Random toggle. Then, each Playlist will be played back in random order, making sure that all items are played at least once on every Playlist iteration.
We also released Restrictions for Sub-Playlists. When you add a Playlist as an item in another Playlist, then a “Options” button appears. Click it will allow you set the Max-Time and/or Max-Items. The first will define the total Playback time allow for each iteration of that Sub-Playlist, while the second will restrict the number of items played back. When using any of the two options and a Playlist is interrupted, the next playback of the Playlist will be picked up from the next item.
All three can be combined to have the effect described by the original poster of the idea. Random playback is available under all plans. Sub-Playlists are only available in the “Pro” and “Enterprise” plans, so you will need to be on that plan to use Restrictions for Sub-Playlists.
All of my advertisers like to run numerous ads within their space. It doesn't mean ALL 10 ads from one client should run right in a row. help.
I cant wait
This will be very usefull. I need to manually shuffle my videos.
Any update on this since 2018?
Pretty sure YoDeck just ignores these suggestions
I'd love to setup a way to have a different random playlist play each day.
Any further word on implementing random playlist or container? Random image slideshow from url dir?
Any update on this? In 2017 you said this was pretty close to final.
This is a great idea, we have a collection of motivational quotes we rotate out manually would love that to be automated and randomly pick one out of the tagged collection on each iteration of the playlist.
It would be awesome to have a randomize option for media on devices.
Randomized Tag Playlist; play X amount of randomized items with a particular tag.

when will this be available
The new audio functionality its great, but it would be even greater to been able to randomly play the audio tracks on the store.
When I build a Playlist, I need the function:
Just pic one element with the tag "example"
I don't want to have a tag based playlist inside a playlist, just a random element from one tag.
It would be great
As part of this request it would be nice if I could play X number of items or all Items in a Tag playlist vs all Items with that tag. Use case would be I have a group of images with the same Tag of say IT Security Posters/Images and I want to randomly show 2 out 50 in a folder each time the playlist is requested.

Allow playlists to be randomised or shuffled

Ability to have a slide show of random photos from zzz folder and play for xxx minutes.
This would allow me to play a video or two - then some photos - then back to the videos... Then show some more of the random photos.
