Re: Detecting track change

Hi all, Is there a way of detecting a change of track when MPD is playing so that a script can be run? I've had a look around and can't seem to find anything (although that could be because whenever I search, it also looks for 'MP3', 'MOD' and 'Playdate'). The closest I've found is 'MPDCron', but t...

Re: MPD on ubuntu

the user you have set up in mpd.conf has no permissions to read the directory or files. fix your permissions on these directories.

By the way: which help page says that reading the manpage is wrong? that sounds suspicious to me :P

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

And as far as up to here there is no problem - the artist- tag looks like this: "Luis Armstrong\\Ella Fitzgerald". This creates 2 seperated "artist"-entries in the tag-information of the song. At least if you tag with Mp3tag - i don't know how other tagging-proggies work. I would even try it. but s...

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

If you have "Pink Floyd" as the artist and "The Wall" as the album, based on your logic, you expect the following: Pink - The Wall Floyd - The Wall That will not work. Whatever you put under the artist tag IS the artist for a given album. In your case, "Luis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald" is the ar...

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 ...

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

*sigh* you are talking about an album where the WHOLE ALBUM is made by 2 artists. in that case both artist belong into ONE artist field. albumartist and artist both look the same: "Eric Clapton & BB King" What you are doing is like splitting the album name in half and put it into 2 tags. Don't belie...

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. You obviously have not understood what the albumartist tag is there for. its called albumartist for a ...

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.

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

first of all: make sure ALL your albums have an albumartist tag. For regular albums the albumartist tag is the same as the artist tag. For compilations, soundtracks, split cds, etc set it to something else (Some just set it to "Various") This way you can browse for "Various" and have all your Soundt...

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

No clue why you link a bug report that has word-for-word the same question as this very forum thread. No, there is no fallback for artist. You are misunderstanding mpc list the 2nd type is just a filter for the first type. If the first type doesnt exist you obviously wont get results albumartist is ...

@Rasi: Thanks for the explanation. So its the question why the mpd-clients don't have access to the database-filesystem. Would make things easier.

most plugins will most likely not work anymore, since gmpc had a gtk3 rewrite. and plugins need to be compiled.

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

there is no fallback. mpd will not fix your tags for you.

Just tag your files properly. albumartist tags do not belong to compilations only, but in EVERY album.

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?!

Re: Where are the MPD-repositories?

One should think, that MPD puts the conf-file somewhere where it can find it when it needs it, but anyway. :roll: MPD does not install a default config file at all... and you even said yourself that you yourself have put the mpd.conf in /etc. it was not mpd that put it there.
