Yet Another Shuffle for Winamp

Yet Another Shuffle (YAS) is a shuffle replacement plugin for Winamp.YAS aims to shuffle through almost all tracks from a playlist (as opposed to just shuffling through a subset of the playlist). In order to achieve this, YAS
  • maintains a pool of tracks not played so far from a playlist,
  • draws the next track to play from that pool (hence effectively avoids duplicates), and
  • persistently associates such a pool to a playlist.
YAS identifies a playlist by a hash code. A playlist's hash code is computed from
  • a configurable number of tracks (file names) taken from that playlist, and
  • the length of the playlist.
A pool of tracks not played so far from a playlist is made persistent between activations of that particular playlist by storing it in a file with a name representing the playlist's hash code. Those files are stored in directory "%APPDATA%\Winamp\Plugins\gen_yas".

For further details refer to

NOTE: YAS is incompatible with JTFE (Jump to File Extra). In order to use YAS, JTFE has to be deactivated.
