Sort by track number issue with Android Foobar Mobile

Running Foobar on my cell on my home network and the music files in folders sort by alphabetical not by track #.

if I run the same folder on other music programs the sort is fine.

Is there a setting in Foobar Mobile to sort by track number on home network?
I can see the track numbers but it still sorts alphabetical.
Thanks

Do you run the files on the home network through a DLNA server software? That will determine how the sorting is sent normally.

Are you using filesystem view ("music folder", "music on storage") or artist/album view? For me it sorts by filename in filesystem view and by track number from tags if artist/album view, which seems reasonable to me. Here is an example of two files:
  • aaa.flac with track set to 02
  • zzz.flac with track set to 01
Filesystem view on the left, artist/album view on the right:
X

 It was the server software Twonky that comes with my server



Yes Thanks

So was there a setting in Twonky that you could change to make sure Foobar can see it the way you prefer?
