Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Order of play in play lists or library

Is there a way to make RB play songs in a certain order by artist or
some other criteria. I have a double boxed set of Beethoven's 9
Symphonies that I have ripped to my hard drive. The CD's were recorded
not necessarily in order, ie the 1st disk has symphonies # 1 & 2, the
2nd disk has just # 3 while the 3rd disk has both #4 & 7, the 4th has #5
& 6 and then the last 2 have no8 then no9. What I'm trying to do is play
them in sequential order Symphony #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, then 9. I
have created a smart list, and able to get all tracks from the 6 CDs,
but I can't seem to get the play order that I want. The only thing that
I can think of is changing the track title in the file, which I'd rather
not due.

Well, other than manually ordering the playlist yourself, you would
probably have to rename the tracks. What are the track titles that it
wouldn't work already? (I ask because MusicBrainz tries to cover such
cases by making the track titles "Symphony No. 1 in C major: I. ..."
and so on. ...I'd recommend using MusicBrainz anyway. :)
