Emby Server Version: 4.4.2.0.

 

 

Adding an artist to a collection, creates an entry in the collection.xml (that's ok), but within emby (at the frontend), only the other items are shown. (see attachment)

Artists never seem to be shown in the collection.

 

  <CollectionItems>
    <CollectionItem>
      <Path>/share/Multimedia/Music/U/_Elektronik/_aab $ 5.1 Testfiles_#</Path>
    </CollectionItem>
    <CollectionItem>
      <Path>/share/Multimedia/x_config/_Emby Metadata/metadata/artists/Pearl Jam</Path>
    </CollectionItem>
    <CollectionItem>
      <ItemId>eca45125962e4582929d237ba5df03fb</ItemId>
    </CollectionItem>
    <CollectionItem>
      <Path>/share/Multimedia/Music/E/Crossover/_Max Richter ~GBR DEU~_#/2008 - Waltz With Bashir [OST]_#</Path>
    </CollectionItem>
  </CollectionItems>

And: if there is only one artist-item in the colllection and no others, the whole collection is not shown.

Artist entries are completely ignored.

 

But the primary preview image automatically generated by emby shows the correct entries with the artist.

 

This should be a bug. I somehow remeber this from previous versions. is the bug showing up again now?

 

Please check.

Hi there, can you try using the web interface instead?

I did before. No change. Same Same.

Can you reproduce my problem?

 

Can you add Artists to a collection and view them afterwards in the collections section?

I think it's a minor bug within the collection section. The .xml-entry seems to be ok.
