In my library, some albums appear multiple times even when they have the Ids (MusicBrainz).

 

These IDs are from one double:

Hi there, how are your music files named and organized?

It is organized like this:

 

Artist - (folder)

          | album - (folder)

                   |Titel - (file)

 

But some Albums are split up between Artists.

 

Example:

 

   Folder Structure:

 

     Artist

           | Album

                     | Song

  

 

     Artist & other Artist

           | same Album

                     | Song

Ok, that's the reason why. Currently albums are associated with folders in your library. We plan to remove this and become fully tag driven in the near future, but we're not quite there yet. Thanks.

Hm, I have the same Problem on Emby 4.3.1.0 but I didn't split anything.

 

I use:

 

   Artist

           | Album

                     | Song

 

I have one Artist with 4 Albums for example, but under Artist the Same artist exists 3 times 1 with 3 Albums, 1 with 1 Album, 1 with 0 Albums... I checked the MP3-tags, those are all fine and all the same. I added the same MusicBrainz ID to all 3 Versions of the artist, but that doesn't change anything. How can I remove artists manually? Same name and same ID doesn't seem to fix this. I have this with multiple Artists which makes the Artist overview quite ugly.

Ok, a workaround is to set emby to store the information in NFOs and manually edit them. Then after readding the albums the artist is correct and only appears once.

Hi, we'd have to look at a specific example and I would suggest updating to emby server 4.4.2. thanks.
