I open a video file from a folder that contains multiple video files.
I have this option enabled to automatically generate a playlist:

Settings->General->General Settings:
When files opened: Add all files of the same type to playlist

Potplayer opens, playlist get's generated, first file starts playing and the playlist shows all video files from that folder.
It's sorted by 'Ascending order (A to Z)' and by 'Title'. This is standard.
Now I change the sorting options in the playlist to 'Date' and 'Descending order (Z to A)', and it changes the playlist accordingly.
The newest video is at the top and the oldest is at the bottom.
Awesome!
But here comes the problem:
I exit Potplayer and open the the same video file.
But now it's NOT sorted by 'Date' anymore. It also isn't sorted by 'Descending order (Z to A)'.
It's sorted by 'Ascending order (A to Z)' and by 'Title' AGAIN (even though it says it's sorted by 'Date').
Potplayer remembered the setting but it didn't execute it.

Hoping for a fix.

Each time when you open files from explorer the Potplayer forms the default playlist again.
Function
When files opened: Add all files of the same type to playlist
When files opened: Add together similar files to playlist

using sort by Name.

So the playlist is formed every time with sorting by name.


Sort function(Sort menu in playlist) is manual,
no auto sort.
Always try the latest beta version (x32 only) before continuing a discussion here.
When you have a problem (Follow steps 1,2,3)
This is NOT official support though. It is my contribution to Potplayer.

So can't we just have the ability to choose our own default sorting option like date modified, size, etc. instead of just having name (a-z)?
or maybe potplayer could remember a different sorting option for each album: for example for the default playlist you have sorted by date and in a album called movies it's sorted by name.
is that possible?
