But i was wondering if its the title that might be misleading you? 

That's what I'm thinking because in search they are all just blended together. It has always been like that.

Well, I provided some images on this very thread showing that no results are given. No results for the "Quartetto Italiano" search whereas this is the "album artist" for eight albuns.

 

It simply does not occur on previous Emby versions.

 

Would it help if I provide search results from previous versions?

If you please tag a single MP3 track with a non existent album artist and a different non existent artist, you can reproduce the behaviour.

What is a non existent artist?

 

An artist that does not exist on your Emby database.
Just grab an mp3 file, copy it and tag accordingly:
Album artist: "testing xxxx"

Artist: "testing yyyy"

Then, search for "testing xxxx" and you will se no results whereas searching for "testing yyyy" wil bring you the track.

But once it's scanned then it's no longer non-existent, right?

What i think Eduardo is trying to say is

 

For a new(copy) mp3 add two new artists which currently dont exist in your emby library

 

One to the AlbumArtist tag - "testing xxxx"

and one to Artist tag - "testing yyyy"

 

let emby scan the file

 

then try searching for "testing - xxxx" and "testing - yyyy"

 

"testing - xxxx" will fail

Yes, that's the idea!

It seems Emby still does not include "Album Artist" when searching.

Search for "Quartetto Italiano" still has no results whereas this is an album artist and is correctly listed on Album artist's page.

Please consider the following images:

Currently running v 4.0.1.0

 

Emby still does not retrieve results for "album artist" metadata.

Thanks Luke,

 

post-3050-0-36739300-1532042785.jpg

 

As you can see, this album artist is "Quartetto Italiano".

This info is on the Album artist field of each track.

 

Track artists are, though, the actual players (this ensemble has changed their line-up various times):
"Paolo Borciani, Elisa Pegreffi, Piero Farulli, Franco Rossi"

Searching for Quartetto Italiano retuns no results.

 

Please also consider rock bands such as Yes, Badfinger, Jefferson Starship, Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones and many others that in their lifespan changed members various times.
This is why both fields do exist.

Badfinger

I still cannot reproduce this. Using search I am able to find both album artists and track artists.

 

On that screen, when you click on Quartetto Italiano, what do you see there?
