I have been using Music Cabinet, which is another fork of subsonic for 3 or 4 years, but it is no longer being developed. So I started looking at alternatives, and the new version of Madsonic seems like it is going to be a great replacement for what I have been using. Just have one concern that I can't seem to figure out.
Organize by Folder Structure is checked and grayed out in Madsonic 6. Music Cabinet was able to use the Id3 tags to determine artist, and at this point that does not seem to be a functioning option in Madsonic. When I started testing how I might restructure my folders, I noticed that if I have artists in different folders, they display multiple times in the main view. For example I set up 4 Media Folders as listed below:
Root Folder 1: New Releases (2015)
Root Folder 2: Studio Albums
Root Folder 3: Singles
Foot Folder 4: Bootleg Shows
Regardless of whether I display them combined or separate, if the same artist is in each media folder, that artist will appear 4 times on the Home/Artist view. They are not repeated in the scrollable list in the left frame. Then if I attempt to use either iSub or AVSub to play music on an iphone, the artist folders are repeated there as well.
Question: Is this how this is intended to work if "Organize By Folder Structure" is enabled, or is this a bug? If it is not a bug, when will we be able to uncheck that box, so it will use the id3 tag rather than the folder name?
Thanks for any help or advice....
