List view for folders + files on Media Player

I have a new Roku 3 and have installed the Roku Media Player channel. I like it, the playback works fine with three different DLNA servers I have in the house. (the main one is Plex)

The major problem for me is the flattened, sideways display of titles. I have thousands of files in dozens of folders. I don't actually care for preview or thumbnails, I would really much rather see a folder/file display list.

Am I missing something? Is there a different DLNA player which would give me the file list view?

I always wanted the same thing. Hopefully someday.

Hey RokuDale,

take a good look at Kodi (if you are not already). When it comes to the layout they do probably one of the best jobs in terms of options.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they will finally update the Media Player app for the Roku 4!?

Re: List view for folders + files on Media Player

Would love to see a list view option available--especially when viewing the streaming content on my media server. I have WAY too many titles to easily view using the current thumbnail previews. Hope this feature/option makes an appearance soon...

It would also be great to have that option for streaming services as well, but less important to me.

As the new (and first-time) owner of a 2015 Roku 2, this is my biggest current critique. Otherwise, I think it's great!
