MMW->MMA: change sorting of songs on playlists for sync?

Post by surfer »

Let's say, the songs on my playlists are sorted alphabetically by "Artist".
When syncing them from MMW to MMA i'd prefer to have them sorted by "title" on my android device.
Could that in some way be possible?

Sort the playlist on MMW by Title (or whatever field you want), right-click and choose Update Play Order, sync to MMW, re-sort playlist on MMW by Artist, right-click and choose Update Play Order.

Thanks! :)
Sure, it's possible this way, but i have a lot of lists and would have to sort / re-sort them each time i sync.
I hope there is a automatic way like converting the tracks during sync :)

Hmmm, Nice Question, why not do this:

1. Create another MMW Auto Playlist Named "[ORIGINAL PLAYLIST NAME] (Title Sorted)"
2. As criteria select Playlist and Choose Original Playlist
3. In Sort Choose Title
4. Set that Playlist to be synced instead of original one.
5. Sync

Thanks, Peke, i see. Your hint would involve re-creating all my lists as dynamic lists and sort the latter by title. This is quite a good work-around.

But in spite of that, just as an idea, consider maybe for the future implementing some sort of automtically changing the sorting for syncing purposes ;)
