Music Album Atist Artist Inconsistencies Inconsistency

The artist screen is different from the album screen. There's no album artist to compare to so that's why we show them all.

 

Yes i can see the now playing bar is only showing the first artist so that's something we can update for the next release, thanks.

Gday Team Emby! :)

 

I have an issue with Emby not displaying contributing artists within' the album view:

Under an artist, the contributing artists are displayed correctly with all artists involved within' the track, but within' the album view, there's no mention of contributing artists.

Sidenote: Same result in playback. Just the album artist showing - and even when there's multiple album artists, only one is showing.

Hi, they are displayed in album view, but only when the artists for a song differs from the album artist of the album.

 

In other words, if they're all the same, I don't believe it's necessary to repeat the same artist name under each song when it's already at the top of the album view.

True true, but it's not mentioning James Blunt in my example though.

But then again, why is it displaying everything under the artists view?

This seems to be solved with 3.2.29 and/or 3.2.30.0. Thanks for the lightning fast support.
