Thread: Consistent track ordering for albums

  1. #1

    Default Consistent track ordering for albums

    I've just started trying to use Mezzmo to stream my music library around my home, and I'm having serious problems with track ordering. Almost my entire collection is organized by albums but most of my devices around the house seem to ignore track order. I found one app on the iPad that respects track order but none of my other home devices seem to.

    From the reading various forums a lot of the issue has to do with the way the target devices consumes and displays the track details. This got me thinking - is it possible to have Mezzmo embed track numbers into the track titles it sends down to devices? If it could do this, then all devices would work because alphabetical sorting would produce the right results.

    If there's another solution please let me know. But this seems simple and effective.

    It's a good suggestion, thank you. We'll consider adding this in.

    At the moment there's no sure way to make devices play tracks in a certain order, as even when Mezzmo delivers a playlist sorted in a certain way to the device, the device may still re-order it on its own. Perhaps changing titles on-the-fly to include track order would overcome this.

    Thanks. Everything I've tried that doesn't respect the server order seems to use alphabetical, so I think it would be a huge help. Hopefully easy too.
