Play all media documents in a folder in order WITHOUT playlist or dumping (Windows/Android).

Postby Ahearn Irving » 07 Apr 2015 10:42


VLC is excellent, no question. That is undisputable. But it has a very severe flaw. I"ve come earlier again and also again periodically to this classiccomputers.info over the years to view if this problem has actually been fixed yet, so far that I have the right to watch, no appropriate solution!To explain the worry, I"ll offer the example of my media player machine hooked as much as my TV. I put a USB flash drive in it via movies of all different layouts, and also, favor VLC, it"ll play anything thrown at it (AVI, MKV, MP4, MP3s, JPGs, and so on., etc.). I"ll switch and also alters movies on the USB stick a number of times a week and never before have to fuss with the media player. Plug the stick right into it and also start at the file of alternative and it"ll play consistently from THAT POINT FORWARD in the folder and also IN SEQUENCE without poignant the remote control aobtain (AND it remembers the last play suggest on each file so if you speak it, next time it"ll prompt to rebegin from start or resume from last point!!). So the media player starts from the file you choose in that folder and also plays repetitively in sequence, all with ONE press of a PLAY button! So if I push that one-of-a-kind continous PLAY switch, it"ll play the files IN SEQUENCE in THAT FOLDER, from that file on - yet, get this, I perform have actually the choice of playing one file if I simply push one more switch, the OK one! I never before use the OK switch and also constantly usage the PLAY button, yet one does gain a choice!Not so VLC! Only ONE file at a time and also you have to store choosing the following file. And equally annoying that on both VLC for Windows and also VLC Android, I can not seem to uncover wbelow to collection the beginning house brochure. And when we go to play documents, it lumps and also brings up ALL media records in ALL folders into it. Gahhh!!! We need a starting brochure that VLC will stick to on the Android phone!!! If I need to play media documents outside that folder, I have to have option to still collection residence catalog however should be able to navigate to another folder and press play and also it"ll play from THAT folder just and also in sequence, too!!!! (I have manuals and stuff in various other folders however desire VLC"s residence directory to be the movies and also TV episodes folder!)This has actually end up being such a significant annoyance that even after years of mainly quite-satisfied use of VLC, I"m exceptionally, incredibly prepared to jump ship to any type of other software media player that handles many type of file layouts choose VLC does in a portable manner however through this much-necessary behaviour! I"ve lived via this annoyance more or much less (less actually) on my Windows app but it"s simply beyond acceptable on the Nexus wright here fast and effective operation can not be endangered on.No, we don"t want to develop playlists for eexceptionally darn single folder and also, no, we do not desire to need to navigate all the time to a folder to open up all media wright here VLC will dump eincredibly single darn file into it even if it"s a format it can not play like PDFs, message papers, Word records, and so on, and so on (by means of MEDIA > OPEN FOLDER ...). That"s the only advice ever given below, so far, that I"ve checked out. All unacceptable.What"s required is to be able to click on a record and it"ll play all MEDIA records in the folder from that allude forward and in sequence of filename. If my new media player hooked approximately my TV has actually been doing that for numerous months and the old one that only played AVIs did so for 5 years and it was a cheap old thing from Walmart unprefer my brand-new one, then somepoint as progressed as VLC has actually always been must carry out this as well. And it must simply be integrated via no fuss or muss!!!!!!!!!!!!So if anyone knows if there"s a way to perform this WITHOUT doing a playlist or having actually to navigate to a folder, that would certainly be good. I do not mind at all downloading a brand-new version, either, for both PC and Android. Equally seriously annoying on my Nexus that _all_ media files obtain picked up, to start via, and also then I need to move back to the folder and select the following file to play after eextremely single media file. And, no, creating a playlist on dynamic folders (that readjust constantly) is NOT the answer! Nor having to navigate to the folder in question esp. because both OSs VLC do not seem to have an alternative to set the beginning house directory either, isn"t a response - both being the just services I"ve checked out come up in this classiccomputers.info eincredibly time I"ve looked here.Thanks for any kind of constructive tips! I had to copy about a hundred brief how-to vids from PC to my media player that I have to hunt through for research study functions considering that neither home COMPUTER VLC nor Android VLC will certainly handle repeatedly in sequence effectively. I need to reached frustration threshost now, that"s for certain !Cheers,

Was that meant to be a joke? I have actually review via dozens of threads with civilization asking for this extremely SIMPLE feature! The only "solution" anyone ever before offers is to "Open Folder". Oh yeah, in other places argued the "AddSimilar" extension. That isn"t what is being asked for!If I "Open Folder" and also tbelow are subfolders inside it, it digs through all of them and also pulls out every one of the files. So then I have to View > Playlist and also number out what documents are the ones I want, remove them all, and then reportedly I have to type the documents afterwards because they show up to be added to the playlist at random....?This attribute would certainly be exceptionally simple to implement, it would be just ONE function in Visual Basic, Javascript, PHP, etc (those are the languages I usage a lot of often). It would first number out what file was playing, and I assume that would certainly currently be stored in a variable in RAM somewhere. Then it would certainly view what the next file in the catalog is (going alphabetically.... might probably utilize an selection of filenames here). And then it would play it. And as soon as that file finimelted playing, it repeats!I do not understand why everyone always argues a workaround, it would take MAYBE 10 minutes to kind the code up. Why have to I have to spend a few minutes establishing up the playlist every single time I decide to open the folder?MCOMPUTER (Media Player Classic) has actually an alternative for "After Playback"; you deserve to select to just stop playing at the end (choose VLC does when you play a single file), to departure, or to simply play the following file in the folder. I watch the majority of videos through multiple components, and I gained VLC bereason I can speed videos up without altering pitch. MCOMPUTER can not carry out this, and also in reality it is an concern that gets many excoffers instead of options as well. Its lame, why can not I simply have actually both attributes on one player? Why execute the developers level out overlook these points that are asked for over and also over again?I will certainly literally delete EVERY media player I have the day I discover a player through both of these features and developers who are actively making their application perform all the points that the users desire (within reason..... like this super straightforward thing that keeps acquiring brushed up under the rug).

Make sure that you have the toggle for LOOP ALL selected in the VLC playback controls section schosen in order to have VLC play back the entire folder contents. Select the RANDOM toggle to circumvent alphabetized playback or among the various other ordination choices on that toggle to suit preference.

cbnorlumber That just works if the playlist has actually all that documents enqueues. On sindicate navigating to a folder opening it doesn"t enqueue various other papers, so this solution doesn"t deal with the difficulty.Still in hunt for a solution for both Windows and also Android versions.

I really wish world would stop misexpertise this worry. The default "Movies & TV" application in Windows is inferior to VLC in eexceptionally method, except this one:If I open up an episode of a TV present inside a folder on my computer, at any kind of area inside the folder, Movies & TV will permit me to navigate forward and backward with the records in that folder WITHOUT HAVING TO ADD THE ENTIRE FOLDER TO A PLAYLIST. If I"m halfmethod with a 7 seachild present that has actually all of the episodes in one folder, I do not want to add the entire folder to the playlist to watch a show in the middle of seachild 5, yet it WOULD be nice if I might open up an episode thereabouts, and have it continue to play on with the folder.OPENING THE ENTIRE FOLDER IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.Also, that tags their own posts ""? Jesus.

This has been driving me crazy for years, as well.But, for the first time, I actually have actually .mp3s in a folder in Success 10 playing sequentially utilizing the LOOP ALL control that cbnortimber posted.So, thank you very a lot cbnorhardwood.Just to give some even more context, right here is what I did:1. Open VLC2. Click "Playback"3. Click "Play"4. The "Open Media" box have to pop up; and also the default tab have to be the "File" tab (if not, uncover and also choose these options)5. Click the "Add" switch on the appropriate, to add files6. Navigate to the folder containing the audio records you desire to play7. Open the folder - i.e., so that you are currently "in" the folder, through the list of tracks displaying8. Click the "Name" checkbox (have to be peak left) in order to choose every one of the tracks9. Click "Open"10. Click "Play"11. If the LOOP switch (bottom left) is not in "LOOP ALL" mode, pause the track playback, and also toggle the LOOP regulate until "LOOP ALL" is chosen12. Click "Play" and also the documents should play sequentially(13. It appears that when one has actually toggled the LOOP control to "LOOP ALL", it will continue to be in that default state as soon as one exists and also re-enters VLC, so there will be no need to toggle it again).

This thread began in early April 2015, and evidently was a very asked for attribute earlier then and also still hasn"t been included to today. The write-up over me is plainly someone else that thinks he has actually a solution however does not understand also the problem. That best there is just way too many kind of steps if you"re an eexceptionally day constant user and also you just wanna play some files.Long story brief.. For me...If I have a folder full of files.. I want to be able to CLICK on any kind of file in the folder, have it play, and then when it"s done playing, play the next god forsaken file in the folder. And then the following, and next, and also so on, until it plays the last file in folder, in the correct order. That"s it. That""s the ONE thing VLC does NOT have.. TO. THIS. DAY. Oher media players on Windows have this feature. Simple as that. I"d gladly PAY for VLC to have actually this SIMPLE thing!Aobtain, as civilization have sassist, via anypoint else, VLC is exceptional to other media players. But gosh darnit it"d certain be nice to have this attribute.....

Actually, for the perchild who posted over me, you are ideal in that tright here is no way to actually simply open a folder and also pick a file and play it and have actually "the following god forsaken file in the folder" play after the initially one is finiburned.HOWEVER, if you follow the procedures I outlined over, you WILL have the ability to pick among the records, and also then as soon as it finishes, VLC will certainly play "then following, and also next, and also so on, till it plays the last file in folder, in the correct order". It really just takes a couple of even more clicks to execute this than what I agree is the ideal - to be able to simply click a folder and also have actually the music tracks play sequentially.So, provided that tbelow is a way to execute two-thirds of what you want to perform (after a few clicks, 1. choose a record, click on it, and 2. have actually it play each track sequentially to the finish of the folder) in order to have actually VLC play the tracks, and provided that classiccomputers.info does not seem to be addressing this worry at the minute, you have a simple option - continue to comordinary, and not use VLC to play your tracks sequentially, OR to communicate in a couple of even more choices/clicks, which will certainly end up being automatic after you perform so a couple of times, in order to gain the majority of of what you desire.

In Windows I use MPC-HC and also it has actually this function. Last couple of months a lot of of my occupational is in Linux where I use VLC, so I wrote an expansion (lua script). I"ve been using it for a pair of months (it had actually some issues via VLC 2.2.2, yet was very usable). Now for the last couple of weeks I switched to VLC 3.0.3 Linux construct and it functions fine - no worries at all, I usage it for watching video courses, tv mirrors and also music. It"s only briefly tested it in Windows 7 through VLC 3.0.3 portable and it appears to work fine. If someone wants to attempt it right here is the git repo (details are explained there).

For those still interested : I have actually created a solution which does not need extra clicks favor lua extensions or
drutgat solution : link.The idea is basic : once you double-click a record, rather of straight opening vlc, it runs a manuscript which searches all the files through schosen extensions, and compose a .m3u playlist file that vlc will open up.This .m3u file is swapped so that the first played element is the file you opened up. Then because of the truth that a playlist in vlc is circular, ie when you click Next off at the last file it will play the 1st file, you have the right to naviguate in the folder of the opened file prefer in MPC-HC.

The guys, that case they work-related at VLC assistance in this thread don"t even seem to master a concept behind this straightforward feature:1) I want to double click a movie clip2) I desire to have a setting inside VLC which will enable me to automaticallly proceed through playing all the subsequent videos by clicking "next". Without creating a playlist. You have actually created it dvery own in the topic through caps lock ffs. All the various other players have actually it - inspect them out.I additionally produced an account on here to article this, bereason the principle alone seems also complex for you to comprehend. Meanwhile I figured tbelow is no such attribute so I perform not need to look. Thanks for nothing I have the right to usage other ways of doing this myself, however the question is very specific.

After much tribulation, I have actually lastly figured this out on the Android:1. Open VLC2. Upper left hamburger menu3. "Directories > Music"4. From here, select the file that you desire to play. May need to toggle the repeat choices in the settings also. On my phone, the entirety folder will certainly play via.So, not so poor, the function is tright here, although I think they should suggest this out in the hands-on as I did not uncover it to be noticeable, and I am commonly not also negative at figuring these points out.
