http://unix.stackexchange.com – I recently migrated from Windows, where I've been using Foobar2000 for a long time. I've been looking for a music player that replaces a feature I considered basic. What I need is a player that has a play random song command (which can be sent from the command line). Note, that this is different from shuffle, which most players have. In shuffle, the order of the songs is mixed, and the playback is random. What I am looking for is something where playback is ordered, but when a certain command is issued a song is randomly picked and the playback jumps to it; playback then continues on in t (HowTos)
