Browse Folder but sort by episode?

Postby Skeeve » Tue Sep 12, 2017 8:05 am

Hi,

Is there a way to sort TV Series by episode number and not by title?

On my QNAP I have a backup folder of my iTunes library. The folder structur is like this:


|--TV Series A
| |--Season 1
| | |--An Episode maybe 02.mp4
| | |--Episode 03.mp4
| | `--Pilot Episode 01.mp4
| `--Season 2


I already created links to this folder structure which puts the episode number in front:


|--TV Series A
| |--Season 1
| | |--01 - Pilot Episode 01.mp4
| | |--02 - An Episode maybe 02.mp4
| | `--03 - Episode 03.mp4
| `--Season 2


which gives a nice structure. But Twonky Server is using the tags of my mp4 so the sorting is still the alphabetical by title.

Is there any way I can convince my Twonky to use the real episode numbers from the the files when browsing my collection "By Folder"?

Or am I looking in the wrong direction and I should treat it completely diferently?

Note: Would like to not have to have links to "tweaked" filenames as described above. I simply would like to be able to browse my TV series by Series name, season and episode number.

Am I wishing for too much?

Seems it's not possible that Twonky Server can sort TV Show episodes by episode number.

I used SOAP UI to inspect what is sent by my twonky 8.2.1 and there is no episode number available.

Seems twonky server doesn't know/care for that meta info :(
