Track titles that begin with numbers.

Postby pra98cam » Wed Oct 25, 2006 3:15 pm

I've noticed that when the tracks on an album are listed any numbers at the start of a track name are ignored. For instance a track called "30 Seconds" which is track number 11 in a folder... The filename would be "11 30 Seconds.mp3" Normally the first 2 digits are correctly interpreted by Subsonic as the track number and the rest of the of the filename as the track title. However when the track name begins with numbers these are ignored and the track displays in Subsonic as track 11 with the title "Seconds"

Any chance this could be fixed? (or is there a way to fix this that I'm missing?)

Yeah, I intentionally remove numbers from the (beginning of the) ID3 title, as I noticed that a lot of my music had the track number as part of the title.

However, I'll try to improve the algorithm so that cases like you mention are not adversely affected. (For instance, if an ID3 track number is present, and is different from the start of the ID3 title, don't remove the numbers from the title).

Thanks,

Hi, just thought I'd let you know that I've noticed that the new version isn't dealing with these types of track titles correctly...

Tracks with a single-digit number at the start of the title are correctly displayed (eg 02 2 Minutes To Midnight.mp3 displays as 2 Minutes To Midnight) but tracks with 2-digit numbers have the number removed (eg 04 36 Degrees.mp3 displays as Degrees).

Thanks,

Carl.
