How to randomize the order of the videos

I'm using media_player_mpy to insert 16 video clips in a cue-paradigm task. The rest of the experiment is written with Python script. We're trying to figure out if there is anyway we can set the videos to play in a quasi-random sequence.
Thank you for your help!

    Hi Iris,

    Sorry for the late reply. You can use the loop table to randomize the filenames that you want to play back. So, you would make a variable (e.g. video_file) and in every line you would write one of the filenames. Then in the Media player where you select the video file to play you put [video_file] which will choose the current file.

    Does that make sense?
