I'm also going to join the ranks of the group complaining about the poll letting you choose only one option, because that is not what happens in (our) reality: specially amongst us long-term HA 'format browsers'.

I'm using AAC @ 160kbps for listening music on my phone but I'm ready to jump to Opus @ 96kbps once Android or Samsung supports Opus on their .opus container instead of mkv. That was a poor choice.
AAC / How to make XLD automatically number tracks?
Last post by John 31415926 -
It's been a long while since I've encoded music.  Now I can't find my way back to a basic function that I believe I used to use frequently.

I'm trying to create folders of compressed tracks from CD's and FLAC's using XLD.  When I go to play back an album-folder of compressed tracks, the tracks appear (and play) in alphabetical order - not in the order they appeared in on the album.

I'm trying to accomplish two things ... #1) automatically add a track number to the file name (ie, "01 Stairway to Nowhere.m4a ... 02 Ready for Anything.m4a ... etc" .... and #2) also have each track embedded with the track number in its respective tag. 

I just want my folders (of individual tracks) to play exactly like the original album ... and using song-embedded info, not a separate cue file.

I could have sworn this was a simple pref to check when I last used XLD.  Now I can't find it and I have no idea how to get those two simple outcomes. 

Can anyone help?

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: CaTRoX (QWR Edition): fb2k theme

No, of course. Like I said, I went for the simplest solution at the moment. Doing it my way, I miss out on collapsible/selectable functionality which would be great to have... and it's much uglier if you want it disabled or if you're already grouping by discnumber.

I also ultimately decided that this early in my theme development I didn't want to drift too far from your main branch if I could help it :)

Just now though I did have another idea of how to approach this as it's own item when the groups are being created, so I might give this another pass and see how difficult it is.

Well, I didn't think this thoroughly yet, but I wanted disc sub-header to be something like grouping header, i.e. selecting entirety of one disc, when clicked on, maybe collapsible and surely 100% optional. The actual implementation idea is yet to form, but we'll see how it goes...

Wouldn't the vast majority of cassettes be the ones we made ourselves? Back in the day (when the turntable was the prime music source) I used to wonder who actually bought commercial tapes.
I occasionally did buy commercial cassettes, when there was no alternative format available in the few, small shops available to me (before I moved to London from the countryside and spent ruinous amounts of money on records).
Two I recall buying were Zappa's 'The Best Band you never heard in your Life' (partially mangled when I lent it to a friend) and Paul Kelly's 'So much Water, so close to Home'. I'd have loved to have bought both of them on LP or CD, but with limited choice, I had to get my music by any means necessary.
