#11796 closed Developer Task (fixed)

Mythvideo displays season folders in non-intuitive order

Reported by: Ian Evans <dheianevans@…> Owned by: JYA
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.27.2
Component: MythTV - Video Library Version: 0.26-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythvideo season folder sort
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I just added an 11 season show to my Videos storage group using mythvidexport and in Video Gallery View it displays the directories as:

Season 1, Season 10, Season 11, Season 2, Season 3, etc.

While it may be argued that alphabetically this is correct, it isn't intuitive to the way viewers think of how TV seasons should be presented. I realize that this could be solved with mythvidexport's season padding, i.e. Season 01, Season 02, but again that could be argued to be a question of aesthetics.

Can Mythvideo be made to recognize Season 10 as coming after Season 9 and not Season 1? Thanks to the developers.

Typically feature requests are closed outright, but the library should be intelligently sorting based off metadata if it makes sense and is available.
