Plex for xbox one view by folder

xbox-one

#1

Anyone know how i can change my view to see the Library in "by folder".

thank you


#2

You currently can't. That feature has not been added to the app yet.

-side note- I moved this topic to the Xbox One forum.


#3

Do you have a idea when the change was made in the APP ?


#4

The developers have not stated when this feature will be added.

It has never been in the app, so nothing was changed to remove it. It just hasn't been a completed feature yet.


#5

+1 for this feature.

I would love to browse my Home Videos (5,000+ sorted in folders by year/month) but browsing them on the Xbox is painful without the "browse by folder" feature. IMHO this is a basic navigation feature that should be included in all Plex player releases.

The good news is the developers have been stated that sorts and filters are something that will be included, so there is a~~ good chance that before the app is released it will be included~~. The bad news is they haven't given a timeline for either the new features or when the app will be ready to leave early access.

--edit
Not good enough of a chance it seems

We have filters/sorts planned for 'soon' and folder view for 'later'. I can't give specific ETAs, I'm afraid (too many uncertainties to get hopes up), but hopefully than helps.

@"Dom C" Good to hear filters, sorts, and folders are somewhere in the plans. Any chance a combined home videos/photos library is in the plans too? I'd much rather view home videos and photos together rather than in 2 separate libraries.


#9

Just chiming in my support to please add a folder view. It's the one thing that keeps me using the media player app on Xbox.


#10

I would also like to see the folder view. Otherwise, my home movies and music collection is not usable on PLEX given the large amount of content I would need to sift through. Please add the folder feature that is available on other devices.


#11

I bought Plex specifically to use it on my xbox one.. I was shocked when I realized that it didn't have folder support. Is there any update on this with an ETA? Does the development team recognize that this is a "must have" feature when dealing with hundreds or thousands of videos???


#12

Would also love for folder view on Xbox One app. Makes no sense to have it pretty much everywhere else except your main media center. Do you guys have a system for community votes on feature requests?


#13

I agree with this. Lack of folder view/sort in the XB1 app is unfortunate, makes it much less useful for large libraries.


#14

I cannot believe this is still a thing. Without the option to browse by folder this app is useless to me.

It's been over 9 months...any word on when this will happen?


#16

I have to agree this is something that is needed.

Awaiting this extremely useful feature on Xbox. Surprised to see it has so many fans, but is still not implemented. I could not find any combination of filters or sorts that comes close to the power and simplicity of "View by Folder".

Edit: Very happy to see it is one of the features highlighted in the "Known Issues" announcement. Sorry for the bump.


#18

These "features still to be implemented" have been listed in that known issues thread for a long time. It would be nice to know if they are being actively worked on or if they are just part of a potential future road map.

It really seems like all the xbox resources are dedicated to trouble shooting any issues that arise with the introduction of big new plex wide features like DVR

Agreed, it's been almost impossible to get anything out of the Plex team regarding what features will be included in the next release. I recall when the last update was released, we were told that the design/architecture of the app had changed to make updates quicker. It certainly doesn't seem like updates are being released any quicker than before. It would be nice to at least hear what features are planned for the next release. And, as an added bonus, it would be nice to have a listing of all the user requested features for Xbox One.

+1 Trying to find movies in the library without a folder view is clunky and not passing the wife test. Please add asap!!
