Title: Play in track order
Post by: mark100net on December 18, 2004, 04:06:46 PM
This should be a FAQ but I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere.

Is there a way to make a playlist with Rockbox with the tracks in album order (for one album with each track in a single directory)?  Or even just to play a directory in that order.

Thanks,

Mark

1) Edit the playlist by hand
2) Rename the tracks with the track number first, like "01 - First track.mp3" etc

Thanks, I realize that labor intensive methods such as that are available.

I would have thought that demand would be greater for such a feature that is so easily automated given that the track number is contained in the tags..

It is also easily automated by external tools, thus it is _not_ a "labor intensive method" unless you prefer to do it manually.

Host-based tools provide both renaming and playlist-generation.
