Singles Not Ingesting Properly

Hi there,

Recently purchased a subsonic subscription, I don't really listen to albums, mainly singles. I have a vast collection, none of them have album tag info, but have artwork, artists etc. However none of this information appears to be loaded into subsonic, they don't have any art loaded and the artists don't show up in the artists page. Is this a known bug / any workarounds?

Also about 40% of my music contains unicode characters and isn't showing up at all... Any workarounds? Most of them are Asian characters can't exactly squeeze into ASCII

if there is no id3 info on the file, then subsonic tries to infer the artist and album based on the folder structure. and yes, this can get thrown off by having subfolders like "CD1" "CD2".

there are no magic bullets about having it infer the info in any other way.

As for foreign characters, I've noted that for a while. I wrote a bit of code that will convert the foreign character to the closest matching English-only one (e.g., removing umlauts), but that doesn't scale well to files in an Eastern language. i don't know if the problem is operating-system dependent.
