So the artist tab is actually showing you the album artist? If that's true, then what does the album artist tab show? the same thing?

Always shows "Quartetto Italiano" as artist.

 

(But for me that's WMC's correct way of working to manage the mp3 tag)

Thanks everybody for the effort.
 
I think Emby should keep it's current distinction regarding "Album artist" and "Artist". This is the best means to keep a music library of all genres.
Rock/pop bands change their members throughout their lifetime, jazz artists change from one track to another and this is the core of jazz aficionados, also classical music soloists change on every musical piece...
 
I would also review some of Emby interfaces as to correctly refer to "Album artist" or "Artist".
 
As an example, the "Now Playing" screen to music on Chromecast shows:
- Track title
- "The first artist "
- Album title
And by "The first artist " I mean the first track artist it gets from the database. This, I think, should be the album artist.
Of course would be even better if this now playing screen would show Album artist and also, all contributing artists.

The above image is Emby's web interface screenshot from the album detail screen.

It has one of the track's menu activated,

 

As mentioned, it seems to me there could be real improvements with very little effort.

 

a) There is currently no "Play" button on the track line. Instead each track line shows three buttons: "Add to playlist", "More..." (which opens the menu shown on the above image) and "Add to favorites". The "Add to playlist" is also shown on the "Moreā€¦" menu.

I would suggest:

  • relocate "More" button to the end
  • change "add to playlist" to play button
  • using the long click function already standard to Emby as a means to select one or more tracks to insert/create a playlist.

 

b) Once the "Play" button is present, I would suggest every contributing artist on the track line, e.g.: number (1) on the image, to be a link to the artist detail page,

 

c) On track's "More" menu there currently is a "View artist" option (number 3 on the above image) which actually leads to the first track's contributing artist. I would suggest changing this option to "View Album artist". As mentioned on (b) above, every contributor artist would be reachable from links under track's name.

 

d) I found no reason why each track "More" menu has an "View album" option (number 2 on the image) as we are on the album detail page.

 

e) The "now playing" tray currently have two links: one to the album detail screen containing the track being played and one to track's artist detail page. Problem here is this second link leads to "the first contributing artist" Emby grabs from database. As stated on item (b) above, I suggest there should be a link to each artist shown.

Now for Emby I think the current behavior is correct.

 

"Album Artists" tab correctly shows all album artists. It correctly shows the "Quartetto Italiano" from the sample tracks.

 

"Artists" tab currently shows only names found on track artists so "Quartetto Italiano" is not shown.

There is no Play button on a track - because you can just click the track and it will play (in the web app at least)

 

so that would have to change/modified to allow "linking" to a contributing artist - which i have wanted for a while

 

Yes view album does in an Album view seem a bit odd

 

Your other points make sense to me

Please try again when Emby Server 4.1+ is released. Thanks.
