I’ve been using Vanilla Music app for quite some time now. Today I saw that Vanilla has some strange order in which it plays the MP3 files.
The source of my files is my Banshee archive on my Linux desktop. Banshee organizes all MP3 coming from one album in a folder named after the album, and all albums from one artist sit inside a folder named after the artist.
The files are name with the scheme [trackno].[tracktitle}.mp3
Pretty straightforward. As track numbers are two digits, simple alphanumeric ordering will yield the proper order for playing them. Vanilla shows track names by the content of the tag. Inside the tags, Banshee does embed the track number, so even when going after tags rather than after filenames, the correct order should be achievable.
Yet, Vanilla has an order of its own, which I still haven’r really figured out.
Is there a way to tell Vanilla that it shall strictly play by alphanumerical file name ordering? Or to stick to the track numbers in the tags?
