Need a player that shuffles by album (NOT iTunes)...

by AiXeLsyD13 / May 4, 2009 2:15 AM PDT

Is there any music player/software besides iTunes (preferably freeware) that allows you to shuffle & play by album?

A friend of mine likes iTunes because he can shuffle by album... so he hears an album at a time, then it moves on to the next one randomly.

Any other music players that do this without creating a playlist or jumping through hoops?

There's a WinAmp plugin, but it doesn't work properly.

Help me help a friend say no to iTunes!

What's wrong with iTunes?

How about WMP?

Firstly, it's iTunes, and secondly... It's a resource hog.

I don't think Windows Media Player has that option.

Looking for other programs that do.

Does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of a program that does?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
