Sort playlist tracks by folder name, then by filename

Recommended Posts

Please add a new option to sort tracks by folder name/path, then by filename for playlist, just like the sort option from Winamp. Thank you

Already there. Go into Folders view and tap the three-dots menu icon and select List Options and sort By Path. Then drill down into any folder and do the same to set the songs sort order to By Filename. That's my standard usage setting.

No. I'm not talking about folder view category. what I mean is Additional sort options for tracks in the playlist.

Let me clarify a little. I have a folder that contains so many songs, some of which have been separated into subfolders with its album name, some others don't. the song is also given a track numbers at the beginning of its name. I want to make a playlist of all songs from that folder, so i can shuffle it, from where i want to start. instead of sorting it by filename only, I want to sort it by folder (or album) first then by the filename (or track number), so all songs will look sequentially well.

The track order will look like this:

Song 1

Song 2

Song 3

Album 1/Track 1

Album 1/Track 2

Album 1/Track 3

Album 2/Disc 1/Track 1

Album 2/Disc 1/Track 2

Album 2/Disc 2/Track 1

Album 2/Disc 2/Track 2



I know I can shuffle that songs in folder hierarchy, but I feel uncomfortable with it, and i can't choose one song inside its subfolder (if you choose a track inside its subfolder, Poweramp shuffles only for this folder now and not its parent)
