Rhythmbox is good player but there is no choice to browse music file in folder browser.

Is there a workaround available?

I too was looking for this feature. It can be done as follows:

I wanted to play songs based on folder, which is not possible using default.

Using Edit - Preferences, add the Location field. Then sort by this field by clicking the header of the column.

This image shows how to play songs by folder.

All that can be done at this point is to press Ctrl+O, but this only allows a user to select a music folder. For now, Rhythmbox lacks that feature. However, Clementine is a music manager that allows the feature that you seek.

I have the same problem. I always want to browse my files by folder. There used to be a plugin, but it seems to be discontinued. I found an other workaround, though: Install minidlna. Rhythmbox supports DLNA devices. And as any other DLNA client it gives you the option to browse the files, that are provided via a DLNA server by folder. Install DLNA:

 sudo apt instal minidlna

Configure minidlna:

sudo nano /etc/minidlna.conf

Start it:

sudo service minidlna start

A workaround is to create an automatic playlist using "path" as selection key for a specific folder. Example here
