    ok i want something kinda weird. I want a program that takes a set of folders full of media files and randomly picks one. Then opens it up in media player. ANy ideas?

    I have thousands of media files .avi, mpeg and i would like to randomly select one to watch.

    It's simple to write one in pretty much any language. It might take longer to actually find one that's already out there. :D
