Sort by Track Number DLNA

Post by guacamaya »

Howdy Peeps,

I am checking out MediaMonkey for Android and was interested by its potential to use DLNA. I have ripped my CDs to FLAC files and plugged a USB hard drive into my TPLink AX 21 router. MediaMonkey can see and play the tracks just fine. That is cool. However, it sorts the tracks alphabetically by the song name, presumably from the data in the ID3 tags. The filenames themselves contain the two digit track number as the first element in them. The track numbers are also included in the ID3 tags.

Is there a way to get MediaMonkey for Android to sort by track number? When I look at the files across the network using Windows Media player, it sees the full ID3 info and sorts them by track number, so the router is making that information available. If MM does this, I will likely purchase the full version. Thanks in advance for any help.

MMA doesn't feature user sorting yet, there may be such a feature in MMA 2.0. This means that you'd need to make sure the tags of the files are in order, something MediaMonkey 5 can help you with: https://www.mediamonkey.com/download

Hey Lowlander,

Thanks for your reply. When you say "make sure the tags of the files are in order," what do you mean? All the metadata are correct, or at least close enough to correct. Do you mean including the track numbers in the title field of the songs?

Yes, Track# is an important one. Sort should be provided by the DLNA Server in the current situation.

Track number is populated across the board, but it is alphabetizing the songs regardless of the view I choose. This only happens in MM for Android, however.
