This is what I get from the link.

This is not the problem.

 

 

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?

 

Did you try with an album artist who is not listed as any track artist?

 

It is really very simple: album artists wich are not listed as track artists will not appear on search results.

 

Simple as that.

 

I have tested it on four Emby environments and as already suggested, I can send you a bunch of MP3 files for you to reproduce.

Unfortunately not so simple as I cannot reproduce, but I will keep an eye out for it. Thanks.

I must admit I have been insisting on this issue.

Did a lot of tests.

I agree the issue does not happen on all albuns.

 

May I ask you to add the attached MP3 files to your library and search for "Quartetto Italiano"?

 

This music album has been tested on various environments and Emby will not bring results for the album artist ("Quartetto Italiano").

 

Thanks in advance,

Attached Files

@EduardoSantos

 

Ok just had a play with these files

 

With your files as downloaded

 

Quartetto Italiano - appears on the Album Artists but not on Artists pages

 

And searching for Quartetto Italiano does not bring up any results.

 

I think this is that only Artists are included in the search results - NOT Album Artists which with your files is the only place Quartetto Italiano appears

 

Changes

 

So what i changed was to add Quartetto Italiano to the Artist field in the mp3's so it now reads - Paolo Borciani; Elisa Pegreffi; Piero Farulli; Franco Rossi;Quartetto Italiano

 

Did a refresh of all metadata for the album 

 

And Quartetto Italiano is now on the Artists page

 

They are now found in a search

 

And Metadata is pulled from the web along with an image for Quartetto Italiano

 

 

So modify your Artist Tag field in the mp3's to include Quartetto Italiano and then refresh your album - and you should be good to go :)

 

 

@Luke would have to comment on why Album Artists are not found in a search and why adding to the Artist tag - works when Quartetto Italiano is added but not when just in the AlbumArtist Tag field.

That I could do as a workaround to my own problem.
As a matter of fact I did it on some albuns.

But it would bring no leverage to Emby.

I am trying to contribute...

Thats fine - was just showing how it can work for you and anybody else who might have the same problems reading this in the future

 

Only Luke can say if this will be supported or not at some point

@Luke,

 

Could you possibly try the files?

You see... Mr. @PenkethBoy was able to reproduce the problem.

The Artists tab is only showing contributing artists, as opposed to all artists which would include album artists. That could always be changed although I imagine it's been that way for a long time @ginjaninja, @Vicpa

And yes i can reproduce and that highlights the issue. The Album Artist is only the album artist and not also the track artist.

 

So there are two possible fixes we need to decide upon:

  • Having artists be all, which would change the behavior of both the Artists tab and search
  • Just make an adjustment for search

I probably lean towards the first option, because it's reasonable to click in there and expect to see all possible artists.

"The Artists tab is only showing contributing artists...." are you referring to the search results or the Artist Tab in the Music Library?

 

As all my AlbumArtists show on the Artist Tab (music Library) - or is that because all my AlbumArtists are also in the Artist/Artists tag field in the mp3 - as MusicBrainz Picard puts them there?

Yes that's correct.

Yes that's correct.

i don’t like the idea of combining artists and album artists into one tab. I don’t have the precise numbers as counts have been removed but I know I have roughly 750 album artists but about 10000 artists. Combining them will be a retrograde step in identifying album artists which is the tab I use most often when I’m looking for music.

Hi

 

I agree with Spaceboy. Combing them would be a bad idea. I think the effort should be made to fix the issue with album artists, and then correct the search. It is confusing to me that search wouldn't return album artists to begin with. 

 

The artist tab has always showed contributing artists vs all artists as noted.

i am not sure how it has been in past but i am sure how it should be. :-). 

 

 

when browsing the library, emby should maintain a view of album artists separately from a view of [contributing] artists:

reason: there are 1000 more [contributing] artists than album artists and wanting to choose music by album artist is the most common case,

 

artist views and artist search results should contain album artists:

reason: album artists are popular in search results, there would be too much screen clutter to have separate album artist and [contributing] artist results

reason: album artists are artists in expectation/understanding of language.

reason:  is there any benefit to keeping a completely separate [contributing[] artists view unsullied by album artists? i can not see one.

 

(i dont think luke is suggesting that combining album artists and artists, means getting rid off the separate album artist view, rather the artist view should contain both...if so i agree).

if the suggestion is that artists would include album artist but album artists would remain separately identifiable as a subset then I would agree, that is how I would expect it to work.

WMC makes use of mp3 tags so I imagine that the problem is that in the field "Artist" there are several names and WMC does not know how to handle it well. I modified the name of the artist to "Quartetto Italiano".
Try it with these new files and if you fix your problem.

@Teddy, how does it look in WMC without modification?
