I have a collection of CreativeCommons music on a USB, that I used a digital TV to listen to, but its default media player is a bit limited. It offers only two list orders (data and alphabetic), which can only be set universally (not per view), and apply to both folders and files. It also fails to pull track number metadata from files, and if I want any chance of listening to an album in the correct track order, I have to choose date order. But this then makes it really hard to search through the album list, without constantly toggling back and forth between date and alphabetic order.
Is there a way to spoof the date metadata on the album folders, so they reflect the year the album was released? For example, for an album released in 2015, the folder would tell the media player it was created in 2015.
EDIT: I'm using GNU-Linux, and ideally looking for a command I can use in a terminal, or tips on how to write a simple Bash script, to do the whole collection in one go.
