Various Artists detection / handling

Postby therequiem » Wed Jul 12, 2006 1:56 pm

Could you add Various Artists detection to the display code?

If the track(s) in the main window or in the playlist is noted as being part of a various artists album/folder, the artist would get displayed along with the track name. Personally I use the tag VA=1 to signal this, but other common tags are to put (VA) in the album/folder name.

So when displaying a Soundtrack, for example, I would get:
Code: Select all
The Girl Next Door OST (2004)
Play all | Add all | Album info | Edit tags | Comment
Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Played 0 times.

> + D Paul Haslinger - The Plan

> + D Filter - Take A Picture

> + D Thunderclap Newman - Something In The Air

...


Instead of having no idea who the artist is without looking at the URLs:
Code: Select all
The Girl Next Door OST (2004)
Play all | Add all | Album info | Edit tags | Comment
Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Rating 0 Played 0 times.

> + D The Plan

> + D Take A Picture

> + D Something In The Air

...


Although I don't personally have one, this would also help the individuals who keep large folders of singles from scattered artists.

Thank you so much for subsonic. It is exactly what I've been looking for for years.

Good idea! Look for it in the next version of Subsonic.
