Shuffle M3U playlists easily

Project description


Shuffle your M3U Playlists easily!

This simple python tool will shuffle your M3U playlists while keeping the Extended M3U (EXTM3U) metadata in the right place. If you want to shuffle M3U playlists without metadata (i.e. without files starting with #EXTINF), you can simply use shuf instead:

shuf /path/to/playlist.m3u > /path/to/output.m3u


You can install it via pip/pip3:

$ pip3 install --user m3ushuffler

As an alternative, you can install it directly from source:

$ git clone
$ cd m3ushuffler
$ ./ install --user


$ m3ushuffler -h
usage: m3ushuffler [-h] [-o OUTPUT_FILE] [-d] input_file

positional arguments:
  input_file            The M3U playlist to randomize

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -o OUTPUT_FILE, --output-file OUTPUT_FILE
                        The M3U output file to write to
  -d, --debug           Show debug messages
