    I agree and I also "need" this menu entree. You often have a bonus disc at limited editions which are some kind of "EP's" what means these are like a single. So it's nice to play a 2-disc-album in whole but sometimes it is also needed to play one disc only.

    To see the different discs in iPeng is a nice feature right now. Thanks for this.

    I didnt have disc numbers and i am fine with that

    There are at least two kinds of multiple disks:
    1. Too much and to long tracks - that didn't fit on one disk
    2. Complete other stuff on each of the Disks


    The first one are tagged like 101 is the first Track of Disk1, 403 is the 3rd Track of Disk 4.
    The second one like Pink Floyds Ummagumma is named
    • Ummagumma (Studio)
    • Ummagumma (Live)


    If i want to play one of the first i simply add that album to my playlist.
    In the other szenario i just add both Albums to my player - its just one click more and by naming them like they are they sit next to each other.

    How many clicks did you need now and how many clicks do you think you need with that feature request solved?

    Feature Request: Make Disc Number aSelection Criterium

    FWIW: I did look into this when the topic came up. My changes looked
    pretty good, except that it didn't work in the web UI at all. And I
    couldn't figure out why it failed :-(. I still got the patch lying
    around, and I haven't given it up yet. But I'm currently pretty busy
    with other work...

    Yeah, I know. I still have a patch around where I started to work on this...

    Just chiming in here a couple of years later to echo how this would be a really nice feature; I have quite a few box sets I've ripped and have no desire to see, say, 8 individual discs come up in my albums view, but the ability to play disc 6 or such at will would be incredible.

    Same here. I like how are multi disc albums / boxsets are displayed in iPeng. But the missing option to play a single (sub-) disc is a big gap.

    While at first I couldn't figure this one out, I then realised "oh, yeah!"

    I have a number of multi disc releases where I want to only play the first disc (rarely others) like remasters that include a bonus disc of remixes or early recordings/outtakes and some dance music where disc 1 is "originals" and disc 2 the "ambient" versions etc.
