ANSWERED Music: Web Client Meta Data Display - Artist & Album Listing

Recommended Posts

Tanamur

Server Version 3.0.5061.25570

Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Following the recommended folder structure for music is Artist\Album\Song

\Music
\Artist Name
\Album Name
1- Song.mp3
2- Song.mp3

 

Summary

I have decided to rerip my music collection in FLAC format while keeping the previous lossless WMA folders to compare quality for a while. I have noticed a difference in the meta data display of artist/album in the web client over the last few beta server releases and wonder if it is me or a change in XML direction for display purposes.

 

Setup

I have a single Music entry in the Media Library with both the old WMA folders and the new FLAC folders so there will be a duplication of artists and albums for the time being. I have noticed when I select a particular artist that the old folder meta data displays both the artist and album while the new folder meta data displays only the album (see image).

 

Question

Is this displaying correctly when only displaying the album title after selecting a particular artist/band? I have deleted the *.xml and *.jpg & *.png files from the new FLAC structure and re-fetched the meta data after the Server Version 3.0.5061.25570 release but notice that it is only displaying the album.

compare the embedded metadata of the flacs and the wma's. that's where it's coming from.
