    Welcome to Android Central! Have you edited any of the videos? If so, it might be listing them in the order of most recently edited.

    I smart-switched over to S20 Ultra from OnePlus everything was fine until I went to post on Instagram and all my gallery is jumbled up! I then went into the video folder in my gallery and it is the same there. Videos are just sorted randomly in between photos. Can anyone help?

    Are the video filenames whatever the camera app assigned? Or have you modified those at all? Just wondering if they might be sorting alphanumerically by filename.

    When I go into the gallery... all seems to be fine. Its when I go to post into instagram and facebook its the videos which are all out of place.
    Not sure why in the gallery they would be in order but opening gallery in instagram/facenoom it's a mess?

    Yes, I understand what you're seeing -- but can you tell us about the video filenames?

    Looking at the details they are just mp4 files. Found in internal storage/DCIM.

    Some are labelled VID and some saved from snapchat. They do seem to be organised with the title (by number) although I have sorted them on the gallery by decending. And doesn't seem to have made a difference :-(

    Ok, so what I'm wondering is if the way Instagram sorts them corresponds to the filenames. Are you saying that when you sort by filename in your file manager app, the order still doesn't correspond to how you see it in Instagram?

    I'm having the exact problem. I have just regular photos that are in order when I look in the gallery, but when I go to upload them to Facebook and it opens the gallery, only the most recent day or so are on top. The rest are all over the place. I've been screenshotting the ones I want to post so they are first when I go to post but that's a pain. I thought I was the only one, but this has happened as long as I've had the phone two months ago).
