I just loaded quite a large playlist but try as I might could not find any way to randomise the playback.

It surely must be simple, if not truly basic; but I can't find out how to.

Any help appreciated.

At the bottom left of every VLC screen, as far as I have seen, regardless of skin there is a row of nine buttons. The one at the extreme right which looks like a slightly flattened 'X' is the shuffle button. So long as you have three or more tracks in your playlist, folder or whatever it will then play them as random choices instead of straight sequence. Since I am boringly simple minded i just point VLC at my 'Music mixed' folder and make sure 'Shuffle' is selected.
