"Play All" option in Ubuntu that's similar to Windows 7?

http://askubuntu.com – Is there any GUI(gnome3,kde,xfce etc.) or PPA with an addition to Unity or other GUI userland to have the same functionality as Windows 7? For example- in Windows 7 you can go to a folder with movie files or mp3 files and simply click "play all" and it will automatically open the default media player with all the files added to the playlist based on the naming convention and play them.
