I am using mp3tag to tag FLAC files which I then want to play via my good old Squeezebox. I run the squeezebox server on my NAS. When the files are not tagged, Squeezebox takes the file name to define the order. But the fact is that I like to tag the files with artist/album/year/discnumber/track/title as a minimum
I mainly use the tagging for live concert bootlegs I am collecting.
Often these are multiple discs when they are coming from CD bootlegs. I use for filenames always "D%discnumber%T%Track% %title%" as the filename. track title is sometimes with or without a discnumber. So e.g 01,02,03 or 101,102. Discnumber I always use a plain 1,2 etc. In this setup the order is always selected correctly, assuming bases on disc and track number
But in case of single discs or a full concert audio without disc separations my squeezebox does not pick up the right order it seems and sorts the files alphabetically on track title.
a solution would be to keep the track number in the title, but I don't like that to be honest.
But I mainly want to understand why this happens. Why does Squeezebox not order on track number when having a single disc album, but does do it correctly as soons as mutiple discs are in the album...
