artists search

Unread postby mea » 23 Mar 2014, 11:10

Hi there,

When I search for an artist, madsonic shows me the folder names (1st level).
My folders are not tagged artists/album/files style...
I'dd prefer to have madsonic search for the artist names in the id3 tags.

The same problem happens with lastFM scan, madsonic provides the folder names to lastFM service, which results in...Absolutely no results!

Can I do something to get madsonic scan the id3 instead of folder names? thanks !!!

hi there,

a complete ID3 based support will come later, at the moment its a mixture of folder based and ID3 tag support.

Madsonic 5.0 support only folder based and valid tagged music libraries. :cry:

best regards

I too would appreciate the complete ID3 tag support - would be great if it were like mp3tag! But support for all declared ID3 tags from ID3.org will be just fine!

This answers one of my questions from my post http://forum.madsonic.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1048

As far as I know Madevil Madsonic will be the first to fully support them!

I also have my music sorted out like this: /var/music/albums/Artist - Album (year)

All albums are flat in that folder, so there's no artists at all in Madsonic. It should get the artist meta from id tags instead of folder structure, really. Like MusicCabinet does.
