I hit shuffle and the queue fills in a very not random order even though it is set to random in preferences. This behavior occurs even if the queue is cleared first. Tracks from similar albums will be grouped together, which is not random.

Help?

I have a 1 minute YouTube video that shows the problem in full.

Had to mute video audio. YouTube should be done processing it soon.

What are your shuffle settings and do you have keep tracks in order while shuffling set for those tracks in the track settings?

"...do you have keep tracks in order while shuffling set for those tracks in the track settings?" I have no idea what this means. Could you elaborate?

If you select the one of the tracks that are in order from an album, or one of those tracks, and right click or Shift+Enter and then look at the settings tab, is "keep tracks in order when shuffling" activated?

I can reproduce this when right click/ Play Shuffled from the thumbrower for a single playlist so i should be able to fix the issue

When the shuffle button is enabled, MB adds the files to the Playing Tracks list in album order but playback should still be shuffled while the shuffle button is enabled.
However there was an unintended behavior in the released version 3.4, where tracks added arent played shuffled. If you update to the patch version thats already fixed

unzip and replace the existing musicbee application files

Thanks all. "keep tracks in order when shuffling" was off in case you were curious frankz.

I downloaded a fresh version of musicbee (to be safe) and applied the patch as Steven suggested. This Worked!
