So I've gotten the Mediabrowser server up and running, and am generally very happy about how it deals with my movies and tv shows. MP3 albums are done pretty well, too... but when I started working on getting all the singles tracks (various tracks by various artists, not part of any album) I notice things are... quirky. For example: I added the Album Blue is the Color by The Beautiful South, and it added correctly, showing the right cover art and everything. Then, I added a bunch of separate tracks, also by The Beautiful South, and each track has, in the ID3 information, Artist and Title set, as well as cover-art. However, when loaded into the music folder used by Emby/MediaBrowser, it shows the same cover art for all non-album tracks - which happens to be the cover art used by the first track in a standard alphabetical listing (a track called 36D). This is what it looks like in the Mediabrowser (where "36D" is listed behind the tracks starting with a letter, for some reason): And here's an example of one of the tracks' actual cover art as shown in my tagging tool: Folder structure is simple (and kept to the standard for albums): Z:\mb\music\artist name\album folder\album tracks Z:\mb\music\artist name\separate tracks But what do I need to do to have each separate non-album track display the correct (so each track's own) cover? Is my folder structure incorrect? Is there even a procedure programmed for non-album tracks (because all references I see in Mediabrowser's tutorials [and also in Kodi, which I use as a front-end in our seating area] assume everyone only has music albums, it seems like.
Hi guys, So I have a fairly large collection and after several iterations of media organizers am having a bit of trouble synching up with MB3's music features. From Winamp, Sonique, Windows Media Player, MusicMatch Jukebox, iTunes, TuneUp, etc, etc I've tried a number of things to keep my media collection organized. The last two being WMP and iTunes. The last big convert/organize was done using iTunes, mostly because it had the feature to combine/organize to a new /Music folder destination (as my collection grew I had music strung out across various drives). I ended up using this feature to move everything to an external USB drive and also allowed it to update its mp3 tag data. As time went on and I grew more frustrated by the limitation Apple builds into its products I moved back to WMP, but also allowed it to update tag data. So herein lies my problem... I have a large collection and the file structure and tag data are all over the place. Media Browser is linking it to strange connections on musicbrainz (not even close to actual name of artist). I've seen a few links here to MediaMonkey and mp3tag... and I have downloaded both but don't really have the time to dwelve too deeply into them to see what the best option is on doing mass updates. So that brings me to TuneUp. I have a valid copy but I haven't transferred it to my main machine yet to do processing. Does anyone know if TuneUp updates the tag data that is in a format is acceptable to MB3? I want to attempt using it to clean up as much of the collection as possible, then use the move features of MediaMonkey (or something like it) to put it all into the correct folder structure so that MB3 can pull the correct metadata for it all. Thanks in advance! Draz
