Artist on Chromecast's now playing screen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

As far as I could conclude, Chromecast's now playing screen for music shows:
- Album art on the lower left corner and fanart as the background

- track title, first track's artist, album title

 

Well, it seems to me this is kind of a bug: you see, when the track being played has more than one artist, just one is shown.

Also, when track artist is not the album artist we end up with album artist not being displayed.

It seems to me this info should be displayed like this:

- When track artist equals to album artist: track title, track artist, album title

- When track artist differs from ambum artist: track title, all track artists, album artist, album title

 

What do you think about it?

logic for 'different artists' album = album name> track title> artist name

Are there other Chromecast's users currently playing music?

Currently Emby shows track title, first track's artist, album title

 

The correct info wold be track title, all track's artists, album title

 

The best would be: track title, all track's artists, album artist (only needed if not equal to the track artist), album title
