Hello,

i just started with Emby Server and added new Music Library with hundreds of songs. They are id tagged with track name, artist, album and genre. When library scan finish, genre and album section in library is empty. Is because genre are not standard like "POP" but personalized "POP1"? But the same happened to "album".

Please help

Thanks

I would start by checking if you follow the naming  rules for music:

Emby Music Naming : Emby

What metadata providers are enabled in your music Library?

Can you show a screenshot of your metadata tags - from say Mp3tag (ALT+T) so we can see what you added

Genres etc add fine - nothing to do with what you have them as - its just text

For me, just editing the Genre tag with any text, a new Genre with that text is created after a library scan. Maybe you should post the server log to see if there's some error.

probably the file structure then

This happen for all files. No genre was created in Library.

The genres tab is listing albums with those genres assigned. How are your files organized?

My files are in external HD, no folder, just Title-Autor.mp3 and almost all metadata are compiled.

Without structure tracks can have genre but will not show on Genre tab as it only shows album structure.  When Emby gets to 100% tag based then one can have a mish-mash organization and tags will do all the work.  But we are not there yes.

Specific example Track tagged properly but do to no structure does not appear in Album or Genre.  Only Song or Folder.

Here is the Genre, since there is no Album structure Emby ignores the track info in this view.
