Add sorting options (date, random, alphabetical)

The YouTube gallery displays the videos from a playlist in ascending order. It would be nice if displaying in descending order was an option so that the latest video always displays first.

Make it possible to sort all my YouTube videos in my widget alphabetically.

@Barb great point, thank you for sharing!

We’ll try to think about it in our next updates :slight_smile:

I would like to support this. Especially for playlists having the option to sort by newest first (the default still remains the playlist order as it currently is) would be great. I use automation to add to my playlists, but also from my TV - this results in a pretty random order in the playlist, and anything new I added appears at the very bottom of the playlist. It would be great if the widget had the option to sort the playlist by date so new items always appear at the top, regardless of when I added them to the playlist. :pray:

Hi @SteveDigital :wave:

I completely get where you’re coming from, and I couldn’t agree more that the sorting options would definitely enhance our YouTube Gallery app. We’ll try to take this suggestion under consideration and I’ll make sure to update you here in case of any news :slightly_smiling_face:

Many thanks for pointing us in this direction!

I would like a sort button on the Youtube widget to be able to show videos in 3 ways: Random, Oldest, Newest

Hi @Tajee_Turner and welcome aboard :wave:

Many thanks for sharing your suggestion!

Do I understand right that you want to allow your website visitors to sort videos using this button? Or you mean just a setting in the configurator which you can use to display videos in a certain way?

Good Morning,

Thanks for the response! I was referring to having a setting in the YouTube widget’s configurator to display videos in a certain order such as by oldest, newest, or random.
