    Music and ID3 Tags

    Hello and thank you to all the developers and contributors in this community. Can anyone explain to me what exactly is read from MP3 ID3 tags and when? It seems that neither the artist nor album nor song information is taken from the actual MP3 file, but the folder structure only. This can be problematic if you have any kind of slight variation in folder structure as I do. It seems that Emby is also not pulling the .jpg artwork that is embedded in the file either. This is leaving me with all kinds of "albums" that are empty, have no artist, and no artwork even though files are all tagged appropriately including Album Artists. I do not want to rearrange my folders because that would mess up any other applications/libraries that are referencing those files (such as iTunes). So why aren't ALL metadata values read from ID3 tags FIRST and then use folder structure as a fallback, and then find missing metadata (artist image, bio, etc) from scrapers? Is there any plan to implement this in the near future? This has been an ongoing frustration of mine. Thanks in advance for your help.
