For the most part, MusicBrainz ID detection for artists works fine. However, when it comes to some artists/groups that have a common enough name as to exist multiple times in history, the metadata sync operation does not choose the first entry in the MusicBrainz search (which I've been told that's how Emby works in such cases)

 

For example, the following artists have troubles with this:

 

Boston

Detected: https://musicbrainz....6e-9a157dace9a0

Correct Entry: https://musicbrainz....5d-f24c58ec3268

 

Disturbed

Detected: https://musicbrainz....61-2d3b92fb8de5

Correct Entry: https://musicbrainz....af-62dbb90c45c5

 

Genesis

Detected: https://musicbrainz....1c-ebe237362860

Correct Entry: https://musicbrainz....87-b8528d2ee74e

 

Nirvana

Detected: https://musicbrainz....1a-120e9f4766d0

Correct Entry: https://musicbrainz....fc-a69a8278c7da

 

Tool

Detected: https://musicbrainz....8d-d7e2ab924076

Correct Entry: https://musicbrainz....78-9bc9077939d2

 

I've attached my log file containing the metadata sync command for each of these artists (personal domain name and IP addresses were masked)

I saw this when I first upgraded to 4.0 

 

If you go to mbz website and search for an artist with multiple results like "Queen" it always returns the one I have as the most popular at the top.  However, during the migration when there was more than one artist with the same name in mbz Emby would always grab the id of what appeared to be the last one you would see in a search on mbz website which is the least popular.  I had to manually update many artists which were correct before the migration because of this.

I haven't gone through all of these examples, but here are the music brainz search api results for nirvana, and yes, emby does pick the first one:

if you plug that into an xml formatter, you'll see that emby did in fact choose the first one.
