Thanks Luke, for getting back to me.

It isn't able to find some album covers dispite being in the musicbrainz catalogue see below.

and if the The band members/performers are available is the no way to show it?

 

​Also is there still no way to view by composer? I might seem picky, but If I'm going to make the jump I want to be sure, and being able to view by composter is really importiant

Did you check to see if fanart.tv has images for that musicbrianz id?

I tried the interface is a bit strange as there isn't an "OK" button, but it doesn't seem to find anything. 

Of course I can fix it manually.

 

It's a secondary point as There don't seem to be a "composer" option or am I missing something?

There aren't composers at this time, no, but it's possible for the future.

 

So then did you check if audiodb has an image? For both fanart and audiodb you need to make sure the artist has a musicbrainz id assigned.

To get the metadata for artists emby has missed, go into Danilo Perez (or whichever artist) on musicbrainz, copy the last part of the url (8d0e541a-78a2-445f-a2e6-ebf20ee45f41) and paste it in the artist's edit metadata section in the musicbrainz ID.

 

The video sections for emby get a lot more attention (because they are more popular), but - even though I came to Emby because of video streaming at home and away - I hope they shift their focus to music for a while as I think there is a fairly large subsection of music fans looking for an option that - literally - only Roon is filling right now (and it is WAY too expensive!), classical and jazz fans.

 

In my opinion, as mediocre as emby is at music organization (for classical and jazz), it is better than any other server/client option I have found.  Plus, with musicbrainz integration they do that the foundation to make tags easy and thorough,
