Hi,

 

is it possible to import mp3-tag-fields to emby, e.g. website, overview for songs and/or albums?

 

These fields are used in emby right now (see attached screenshot).

 

Background:

I have lots of songs with website information and describtions in different tags (e.g. %comment%, %WWWAUDIOSOURCE%, %WWWPUBLISHER% and so on)

 

%year%, %title%, %album%, %albumartist% works fine of course, but which tags to I have to use for the other emby-fields?

 

Best, Stefan

Well for songs the issue is where would they be displayed? We don't currently do detail screens for individual songs.

Even now everything is shown in emby:

(a) songs metadata

Click on the three dots and "edit metadata".

There are the fields I meant website, overview, etc.

These fields should be filled from tag information in mp3 automatically, like %year%, %title%, %album%, %albumartist% which works fine

 

(B) albums metadata

Same same: Click on the three dots and "edit metadata" within album view.

Even now the YEAR-field is filled automatically, but I don't now which algorithem lies behind it.

As a coder I would only fill these album-metadata-fields, if the content is the same within each mp3 songs in this album.

So, e.g. if all %year% mp3-tags from album "TEST" contain "2018", "2018" is %year% for album metadata, too.

If there are different years, %year% in album metadata should be blank.

I guess but if the only place you ever see them is the metadata editor, is that really useful?

short an crisp: YES!

 

Because if have small informations with download-links, specials for me, e.g. comments/notes and so on embedded in the tags.

When I need to know them, I look there. No other places needed. And the best: you allready have those fields in your metadata.nfo. You just have to link these tags with your XML
