I don't understand your example @jekopsch. I use the same folder structure I believe. For example, the song Back in Black is found at \\server\music\MB3\AC-DC\Back In BlackAC-DC - Back In Black - 06 - Back In Black.flac. Each band has a folder, each album has a subfolder in the artist folder, and all the album tracks are stored as files in that album folder. Is that the same as you?
In Emby if I want to browse by band I click Album Artist and I see all the bands. If I click a band I see a list of albums by that band. If I click an album I see a list of tracks on that album. What's the change you're looking for?
I wasn't getting that type of behavior with my collection until after I made my post. When I browsed "Folders" I would get a list of every song for that particular artist. Now it seems that most of my collection is being displayed the way that I would like, but there are still examples of the problem I was explaining. For instance, for the artist Aphex Twin, the folders and files are located on my system as follows:
/var/music/Aphex Twin/Come To Daddy EP
/var/music/Aphex Twin/I Care Because You Do
When I browse through "Folders" through the Emby web interface, selecting the Aphex Twin folder results in a display of all of the songs from all of the albums, rather than showing the three album folders contained within the Aphex Twin folder. The same thing is happening with many of the other artists' folders. However, since I made that post, I have been going through and editing the default "Title" by using the context menu, and I think that corrects the issue once Emby scans for changes. It seems that the initial scan picked up a particular album name and applied one particular album name to the "Title" field to many of the artists' folders, and removing that from the "Title" for a particular artist might be fixing that problem. It seems that many of the artists' folders now contain each album, rather than all of the songs in one long list.
I appreciate your response, and I think I may have at least found a work around. I noticed that on both the Aphex Twin and Pink Floyd folders, there was a particular album name appended to the artist's name in the "Title" field. I have removed that information from the field in both of those cases, and I will see if that corrects the issue the next time the collection is scanned. It seems that the work I did over the past couple of days on other artists have corrected that issue. So I think the issue is related to how Emby scans the collection, rather than the behavior of the Folders option.
