Hi,

Any chance MiniDLNA can have Intuitive Filename Sorting ?

Simple example is say you have 12 folders, numbered 1 through 12.

The order the folders will be currently shown is:

1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Intuitive Filename Sorting would change that to:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

I mainly need this feature because I sort folders by months and years as well as by episode numbers.

Makes more since when they are in the correct order.

Thank You,

Will

    A simple workaround is to use this number order:

    01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12

    That will show up in that order. Better than having the order totally wrong.

    I would also like to see a natural order sorting, so that seasons etc are sorted ("Family Guy Season 2 Episode 17" after "Family Guy Season 2 Season 3" and so on).

    Greets...

    Could you test patch in 3178923 for natural filename sorting? It uses strnatcmp, or rather strnatcasecmp for case insensitivity, as suggested by Michalis. Unfortunately VLC seems to resort filename lists itself.
