Random plan on playlist not working with version 2.011

Hello @Orca,

It would appear the random play on a playlist stopped working after the upgrade from 2.007 to 2.011.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open a playlist
2. click on random play

The random play will always play the first first movie; subsequent movies are randomized.

Is anyone else having this issue?

    That is not entirely correct.
    It will start with the movie you selected first, then continues random.
    So first select the movie to start with and then go left and select random play.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?

    That is a neat feature. Thank you for clarifying this.
