ptzink posted a topic in KodiHello, I am having an issue with missing music artists in Kodi. I have several artists missing in Kodi, but when I go to the Emby web app, all of the artists appear as expected. I should also note that not only are the artists missing from the artists list, so are all of those artist's songs/albums. So I can't see their music at all in Kodi. All of my ID3 tags are populated, so I have a feeling it has something to do with my folder structure. Let me detail my folder setup: Emby Music Folders\\share\MP3\Full Albums -> Contains all of full albums w/the folder structure \Artist\Album\TrackName.mp3. All of these artists/albums/songs show in both Kodi and Emby web app \\share\MP3\Christmas Music -> Contains the following:Full Christmas albums w/the folder structure \Artist\Album\TrackName.mp3 All of these artists/albums/songs show in both Kodi and Emby web app Some individual Christmas songs in the root "Christmas Music" folder with "Artist - TrackName.mp3" file name. These artists/albums/songs do not show in Kodi, but show in the Emby web app. \\share\MP3\Misc -> Contains only individual tracks with "Artist - TrackName.mp3" file name. These artists/albums/songs do not show in Kodi, but show in the Emby web app.Perhaps of note, this folder does contain a sub folder called "Children's Music" for all of my misc. kids tracks. Before this setup, I had only 1 folder (\\share\MP3) in Emby. The artists showed up in this scenario, but the album and album art information was incorrect (some random combination of other items metadata in the same folder). Going to the above folder setup resolved all of my issues in the Emby web app, but items disappeared completely in Kodi. Why doesn't Emby use ID3 tag information first and then only use folder structure information when critical (i.e. Artist, Album, TrackName) info isn't present? Anyone experience similar issues and/or have a solution? Reorganizing my music library is out of the question as that would negatively impact other aspects of my music setup. I have done a full resync of the Kodi database on 2 different devices on my network to make sure this wasn't an anomaly. Any help is appreciated.
