Make RPS less random so it appears more random #51
Actually, I'd like even a more fine grained randomness.
Subfolders are ok (trip1/day1 trip1/day2 so it's ok to show me trip1/day1/file1 then trip1/day2/file1 within 10 minutes even if I have setup no more than 1 image for 10 minutes) but same folder no.
ps: i find the program not really random. it keeps on showing me pics from two folders over and over. i should have probably open a separate issue for this, but if you implement 1 &2, this should be fixed as well.
BUT, the point is not "absolute randomness" but rather a nice slide show. I would suggest keeping a circular list of the last 20% pictures shown (up to a max of 100), and simply pick again if the next "random" selection is already on the list. This would produce what I believe is really wanted - a slide show without undue repetitions really close together.
