thanks for acknowledging and fixing the default video bit rate so quickly.
subsonic is a daily part of my life, and many of my friends' and family's lives too, so thank you very much for the work that you do!

The directory sort bug still persists. I confirm the option "sort albums by year" is unchecked. I'm pretty sure I've figured out the condition that causes it...

I end up with two groups of alphabetically sorted directories. The first set only has another set of directories nested in it.

The second set has directories plus some individual files that for one reason or another belong in the root of that directory.

Does that make sense?

For whatever reason, subsonic isn't just sorting the directories in order, but also looking inside of them and if there's any files then it groups that set of directories together.

Example:

If I have this directory structure,
A1/X1/files
A1/X2/files
A1/files
A2/X1/files
A3/X1/files
A3/files
A4/X1/files
A4/X2/files

Subsonic orders it like this,
A2
A4
A1
A3

This is a weird and undesired behavior.

Can someone else that's having this issue please confirm as well?

Thks Sindre.

Just one thing. Sometimes, when I am on a album page, the auto refresh brings me back to the home page.
Someone else ?

Thks.

Pretty sure that's the default "timeout" behavior and has been for quite a long time.

Unless you mean while you're actually playing music. I don't think I've had that happen.

Hi,

Your release notes say:
Bugfix: Fixed some sorting issues (e.g., for same artist found in multiple media folders).


However on the Android app I still see multiple entries for the same artist.
I have deleted all the settings on the app and reconfigured the server to make sure nothing was cached.

Can I provide you with any more information to help you fix this?

Subsonic orders it like this,

A1
A3

Well, this behaviour is at least intentional. Subsonic differentiates between "albums" and "directories" (an album is a directory with at least one song in it), and the sorting algorithm puts directories before albums. In your example, A1 and A3 are classified as albums and hence come last.

Of course, if most people think this is an undesired behavior I'll be glad to change it.

Any opinions?

Thanks

Within the say, A1 directory, I'd agree that I want folders first, then files.

When the sorting all of the directories in the root directory, I don't understand why subsonic is "looking into" each of those directories prior to sorting them.

This seems odd...

Certain artists may have one off songs that I didn't want to put in a folder, or other files associated with the artist that aren't songs or aren't album specific.

Subsonic didn't always sort the folders like this. I feel like this started when you added the metadata sorting.

In the Artist field, the alphabetical order of the accented (or umlauted) characters is wrong. For example, the correct order for the list below is:

SebastiAn
Sebastien Grainger
Sébastien Léger
Sébastien Schuller
Sébastien Tellier
Secret Machines
The Section Quartet
...
..
System of a Down
Systema Solar

But in Subsonic is listed like:

SebastiAn
Sebastien Grainger
Secret Machines
The Section Quartet
...
..
System of a Down
Systema Solar
Sébastien Léger
Sébastien Schuller
Sébastien Tellier

This behavior is also present in the playlist.
I am aware of the group Index in the Seting->Index tab, e.g., A(AÂÀÁ), but this setting only accounts for the first letter, however the second one (and I belive the third one too) is not in the correct alphabetic position. Could it be possible to correct this behaviour. Cheers to all

Sorry, I misunderstood and thought this was below the root level. But if I try your example on the root (artist) level, I get the correct order (A1, A2, A3, A4).

If possible, could you create an account for me on your server so I can take a look?

Dear Sindre,

I am looking up to a weird bug in the left frame in the newest release.
The frame shows the 900-1100 top results, and cuts off the remaining folders (in my case only 'all folders' contain enough results to achieve this).
I can only scroll up to artists with J, at which the list ends. This issue has been seen on Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer. I tried clearing the cache and using other systems, but it didn't help.
