Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

@Rasi:
I am afraid, you are not so wrong - even in the Mp3tag-forum they say, that the split-tags are somehow problematic. At lot of players cannot handle them correct.
What a luck, that MPD does not have this problem... :)

Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

@Ran: You misunderstand me! :D Pink Floyd is 1 group and you want to find their albums under this name. But Luis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald are 2 different artists who made some albums together. So you want to find this albums under Armstrong AND under Fitzgerald. At least i want to! ;) And as fa...

Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

I really don't know why you don't like individual artists?! The music-player which i use (MPD, Foobar2000) support it perfectly and it's very practical: Take a album with Luis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald as artists - What would you take as artist, if not taking a split artist? I want to see this a...

Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

Thanks for the advice, i know what you mean. But there are defenately albums with more than 1 artist, especially in jazz, but also in blues. And Clapton and B.B.King made the album "Riding with the King" together! :) And it works with 2 individual artist-tags - so why not with 2 individual albumarti...

Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

Why that's wrong?
How do you handle your albums with more than one artist?
With 2 individual artist-tags it works out pretty well, but with 2 individual albumartist-tags the problems are starting.

Re: Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

Yes, thats exactly what i am doing.
But how i told you, when there are more than 1 artist set for albumartist (i.e. "Clapton\\King) the software start to do stupid things. It seems, its a problem with MPDroid then?! :?

No clue why you link a bug report that has word-for-word the same question as this very forum thread. Because in the bug-report-section nobody cares about this issue. So thanks for you answer! To be honest - i don't really understand why there is no fallback, but i understand, that this fallback-th...

Clarification about usage of "albumartist"-tag needed

I asked this question some days before as a bug report: http://bugs.musicpd.org/view.php?id=3977 It seems, that no real answer will come from that side - so sorry for the double post! The question was following: I have a little problem in understanding the results of the database-query for "albumart...

Re: Native DSD not DoP

@pet-240:
You could place a feature-ticket in the bug-tracker for this issue. Maybe one of the developers is interested in this?!
As far as i know, the developers do not read the forum here.

Re: Does MPD recognize tags ?

It's possible you downloaded the Linux-version?
You need the Windows-version for a Windows-system. :-)
You find the win-version on the GMPC-site, for example here: http://gmpc.wikia.com/wiki/Installation_Win32

Re: Where are the MPD-repositories?

It's how i said - i am not so deep into Linux. It seems, that the package-installer of (L)ubuntu creates the mpd.conf and puts it to /etc on its own?! At least, when i install it the "normal" way using the package-system, everything is where it seems it should be. Hard to say, as far as there is no ...

This is my experience with SACD-Iso's too.

So is it a good idea to open a new ticket in bug tracker? It seems that the old ticket can not be re-opened.

DSD playback broken in 0.18.9?

Hi there, because there are no more Ubuntu-packages for the git-version of MPD, i stuck with an old git-version, which could not playback DSD. So i compiled the version 0.18.9, which is the actual stable version. But there is no DSD too. Is it possible, that DSD-playback is broken again? Could someb...

Re: Where are the MPD-repositories?

Well, in a german forum i found a more or less simple way to solve the update-problem: 1. Install MPD from the standard-repository 2. Get the wanted version from the MPD-site, open the tar-file to a folder and jump to this folder. 3. ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc 4. make 5. copy the compiled mpd-fil...

It would be useful to correct the mistake in the bugreport to leave the issue open for the "feature-wish-list".

The issue is described in the named bugreport: http://bugs.musicpd.org/view.php?id=3952 The programmer there means it is possible to playback SACD-ISO-files since version 0.17.x, but when i try to open a SACD-ISO in version 0.18.8 it is not possible to see it in the database. And so it's also imposs...
