Is it at all possible to able to display album titles as %album% [%media%] ? I would like to differentiate between my CD rips "[CD]" and mp3 "[MP3]" hi res "[Digital Media]". musicbrainz already provides the %media% metadata. Thanks.

That applies only to MPD clients, not the MPD server. You're in the wrong forum.

Ah, thanks. Useful to know that this is a client issue rather than a server one. By the way, I thought this forum was for both client and server development?

But you are not a developer, are you?

If compiling and tweaking my own "distribution" counts as "developing", then, yes, I am. If one needs to be a "certified" developer, then I am not! ;) Perhaps this should then be a restricted forum?

No, it does not. You do not develop anything, you do not edit any source code.

It is already. The forum description says it's for developers. You just disobeyed this restriction.

Oh? So, as long as I edit source code I become a "developer" ? Being doing that for a number of years now - but only now have wanted to tweak mpd for my needs. Anyway, I have accomplished wanted I wanted to - quite easy actually.
