    I have tried MX Player and Mobo Player but both of them do not sort filenames with digits numerically.

    For instance, if I have the files:

    1_StepOneVid.mp4
    5_StepTwoVid.mp4
    20_StepThreeVid.mp4

    It will sort them unintelligently by initial character like:

    1_StepOneVid.mp4
    20_ StepThreeVid.mp4
    5_StepTwoVid.mp4

    I can't seem to find the option to sort intelligently. Are there any decent video player apps that can do this? I've downloaded a set of tutorial videos that are split with numbers like this and it's a hassle to hunt down video 4 down beside videos in their 40's.

    Thanks

    It's not the sorting that's the problem - it's the naming. If you want to sort them numerically, you have to name the files so that each numeric portion has the same number of digits, like this:

    01_StepOneVid.mp4
    05_StepTwoVid.mp4
    20_StepThreeVid.mp4
