New REPEAT option? Wishlist?

Postby d0ugparker » Sun May 11, 2014 12:42 am

Here are the choices presented for choosing my OPlayer Repeat
options:

  • Repeat Off (Play all songs from the current title's list
    location to the end of the list, then stop)
  • Repeat Off - One (Play one song, then stop)
  • Repeat All (Play all songs sequentially, from the current
    title's list location to the end, then continuously repeat
    top to bottom)
  • Repeat One (Play one song, over and over)
  • Repeat Random (Play any of the songs in the current list)
Though I haven't personally tested it, the last repeat option,
Repeat Random, will occasionally play a title a second time
before all other titles in the list have been played a first time.
There's nothing wrong with that, but it calls for another repeat
option that's missing from the list.

I'd like to suggest an additional Repeat Random option, called

    Repeat Random ABR
It will randomize a playlist, repeating All songs Before
Repeating any song a second time. Upon finishing the playback of
the last title on the randomly played playlist, another, randomly
generated playlist will be generated, to guarantee a random play
order different from its previous iteration (knowing at best it's
a pseudo-random ordering).

Cool.

I did confirm that without any special programming, the app
might very well play any of the songs any number of times
before all songs are heard for the first time from a particular
playlist.

Another way to look at it is that with each title playback, the
next, random selection comes from the current playlist minus
the currently playing title
, so the playlist shrinks one-by-one
until the very last song is played. The playlist is then repopulated
with all of its song titles, a new seed is chosen (so the repeat
pattern doesn't, itself, repeat), and the ABR random replay goes
on its merry way.

Personally, I think if you were to do this, you could get some
extra marketing buzz from it. I don't know of any other apps
out there that make this distinction.

Regards and (/|\) peace,
