Update the sort utility to recognize special characters (i.e., hyphens, ampersands, etc,) when sorting by name. It appears the current sort utility skips special characters when parsing media names. This results in an unexpected ordering of media names.

 

Thanks for your consideration.

Here are the sorted files in Emby:

The files are sorted by name:

Here is what sorted by name looks like in file explorer:

It appears that Emby ignores the amperstand. Gets confusing locating files that that have an amperstand in the name.

 

Thanks

I love using emby but atm I cant move over completely as I cant access my server from downstairs while I'm upstairs unless I leave my computer on. I use Plex mostly because there's a Plex app on my Seagate personal cloud which is always on, please can you make a app for that so I can give Plex the boot?
