How to Start Youtube Playlist from Random Video

If you want to start a Youtube playlist from random video, just add: &index=random_number to the src attribute of the embed code.

The code

To produce a random number, I use php rand. Something like

	print rand(1,9)

(replace "9" with the count of your playlist videos).


Here is an example of embed code:

<iframe width="853"
		src="//www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLSsDdmdvvvGep2WaKOSPQe2jubDvtLblk&index=<?php print rand(1,9)?>"
