No I mean a directory view sorted by file name or type like you have.
Using the term playlist was probably bad... :)

I share the same basic bias as you do. Some thought could be given to
extending this feature (perhaps allow the user to manually arrange the
order that media files in a folder are played, sorted of like manual
like in a file view), I don't have a definitive answer for you, guess it
just needs some testing to figure out what the best ui is.

I'm trying to build the nautilus package right now to test it. Are there
any rpms available for gstreamer-play? I downloaded all the gstreamer
rpms from but the pc file for
this lib seems to be missing any ideas?
