When browsing movies, etc, add to the "AZ" Sorting pull-down menu, an additional option to "Sort by Filename"

 

This then orders all the movies such that they match the file system on which the actual media files are stored, on disk.

 

This order is generally quite different to the default sort order, as movie titles are sorted ignoring the articles: a, an, the... and also some movies have different names displayed, especially foreign films.
The file systems sort by the basic pure alphanumeric order.

Hi,

I got here from the first hit at google searching "emby file browser sort" and it sounds close to what I would like.  I've got video files arranged in directories on multiple disks on the LAN and I'd like to be able to browse them in the way I'm used to seeing them in a Linux file browser or when doing `ls` in a bash shell.  Is this doable?  Thanks.

Bump, yes this would be awesome :-) It's more difficult finding a show title such as "The Affair"... because it's called THE Affair, so I look under the T's eh?

That should not be a problem.  Our sorting will ignore such "articles".  You would find that show under 'A'.
