FS#6221 - Honor Disc Number ID3 tag before Track Number tag

Many people have multi-disc albums. The new Disc Number tag supports this gracefully. Many users have three discs of an album, all with identical Album Name tags. Each disc’s Track Numbers begin at 1. As it does not support the Disc Number tag, Rockbox first plays track 1 of each disc, then track 2 of each disc and so on. With Disc Number support, each disc would correctly play its tracks in order.


(sample multi-disc album): [Disc 1, 4 tracks] [Disc 2, 6 tracks] [Disc 3, 5 tracks]

Current (broken) Rockbox behavior: d1t1 d2t1 d3t1 d1t2 d2t2 d3t2 d1t3 …

Desired behavior: d1t1 d1t2 d1t3 d1t4 d2t1 d2t2 d2t3 d2t4 d2t5 d2t6 d3t1 …

Closing all feature requests.

There are also several other solutions, such as giving them track numbers 101-1XX for disc 1, 201-2XX for disc 2. Or naming the album “Blah disc 1” and “Blah disc 2” as both of these solutions will allow you to play them in the proper order without needing to index more information.

That’s true, but my collection is tagged to match the original media. The facilities exist for being able to order the tracks appropriately, so it would be good if the player could support this.

I fully support this feature request. The database is _unusable_ without support of the disc number tag. I do not mind using the scheme dtt or ddtt (d is disc number, t is track number) at the beginning of the file names which corrects the playback form the file browser but I am strongly against perverting the track number tags by using the scheme there. I think that adding a new disc number tag with maximally two ciphers which could be stored in one byte does not add much overhead. Please consider this.

The disc number tag support implemented in  FS#4961  was added today. Great :))) This feature request could be closed.
