Not sure of if mplayer has a random option, check the man pages, should tell you there.

You could also simply use mpg123 as I know it has a random option to play mp3's.

PS. I closed your other thread asking this, double posting is not allowed.

The first post was made at 12:46pm CST and this one was at 1:17pm CST.. So you totally forgot just a little over 30 minutes? Somehow I don't believe that but oh well, no harm done.

Regards.
