Is it posible to store playlists in VLC Player with e.g. shuffle and repeat selected.

I have a playlist where I would rather have it start with a random track than having it start with the first tract - and preferably it should also repeat.

You can get a modified version of VLC media player that shuffles only for playlists, while at the same time it plays other files sequentially.
It can be downloaded from Github


Go to Tool - Preferences- Left below Check button "All".

Search on left - Playlist - check or uncheck ' Play files randomly forever' and save.


  • That will change the global settings - not the settings for the specific playlist. I would like to store the settings with the specific playlist Aug 5, 2015 at 11:46
