Reply To: Sorting wav files by directory

Hi there,

I’m attempting to use mt-daapd to serve uncompressed wav files that I have ripped into a hierarchical directory structure:
/artist_name/cd_title/01-song-title.wav …

Is there any way to get mt-daapd to present this library sorted by artist and CD title like it does when you use mp3s with ID3 tags? Or am I looking at a code modification to make this work?

Any hints or pointers would be much appreciated

That’s not something that can be done right now without a code change.

Hopefully, though, it will be possible in the future once there is a userspace plugin for custom tagging. Then you’ll be able to write a script to synthesize tag information based on path.

That’s post-1.0, though.
