    Ok, here is what I need. I have a Thunderbolt with 200 or so music videos which will play using a variety of video players currently at the app store, great no problem. The trick is I want to shuffle or randomly play them and the file system puts them in alpha order. Is there some trick or app that will give me what I want? All advice would be appreciated. This is my first smart phone, it was recommended to me by someone who really takes phones out for tests drives and can you here me nows.

    I haven't a video player that shuffles videos.

    I tried Act 1 trial app which does not have the shuffle or playlist feature. Do I need to buy the full version to unlock these features? Frankly underwhelmed with trial app.

    Act 1 offers playlists with random play. I have not tried this feature, but I thought this might be close to what you are looking for.

    Try also Toddler Video Player and FolderPlayer4Me.

    Hi Usta, Thanks for the help. I still have not found an app that will let me create a playlist or use shuffle to randomize playback. Right now I am using PowerAmp to playback the audio portion of the Mp4s. I know there probably people wondering what I need this for, I use to plug directly to the flatscreen in the kitchen.

    I've tested FolderPlayer4Me. When I go the the media folder and start playing a file, I see the "Shuffle" toggle. So, this should serve for your purposes.

    Hi Usta, Negative on the last one. Loads fine but fails to see the Mp4s in the folder. I guess I'll continue my search for my white whale.
