[mythtv-users] Can't access my Mp3 collection

Okay, I think it was an issue with my filesystem structure... I removed 
the whole thing, then re-uploaded it and the set the same permissions. 
The only difference is that I removed all white-space and such from my 
collection. Must've been something related to that.

Related, now that I can access and play my MP3 collection, I've noticed 
that while I can navigate to music and play it, I can't control my 
volume or use some other controls. For example, volume up/down and mute 
don't work. And hitting "Stop" drills in on the track's info. Presumably 
I need some keys mapped in my lircrc. Can someone tell me what the 
underlying app is for MP3 playback? Is is mplayer, xmms, etc? I need to 
know so I can get some key mappings...

One other question... most of my collection is label as such:


I notice that when I queue up a directory of music to play, its playing 
1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3... How do I make it sort "intelligently", ie: 1, 2, 
3... 9, 10, 11, 12, etc?
