    Re: Different Artwork for Compilation Albums.

    Yes that would be somewhat messy. It would suit much better with a "ALBUM MASTER TITLE" concept with a grouping level above album. But I think if Asset would support DISCSUBTITLE I would be using it...

    Re: Different Artwork for Compilation Albums.

    Thanks for the great explanation! Those are neat features which would be nice to have in AssetUPnP.

    The Control Point in the pictures, is it BubbleUPnP?

    Re: Different Artwork for Compilation Albums.

    Out of curiosity, could you describe what can be accomplished with those tags please? I don't think they are supported by AssetUPnP. For example, could any of them be used for grouping multiple...

    Re: Various Artists on Compilation Albums

    COLLECTION=1 would be a custom tag, but I assume you are aware that the standard is COMPILATION=1

    Also, don't you populate ALBUM ARTIST? Browsing by that won't include the artists on compilations...

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    Yes, and it's been said above. But then you'd have to tag specifically for Asset which wouldn't conform with your other applications.

    My point was a workaround that leaves the ALBUM tag intact.

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    If this doesn't resolve for a while, you could try another workaround without touching the ALBUM tag.

    In Asset's Rename List, add the line
    album:=(Unknown Album):==

    Then restart & refresh...

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    I think that Asset doesn't accept "=" as the very first character in a tag and will consequently delete it. So if "=" is the only character, the tag will be treated as absent. At least this is how it...

    Not sure if you by "mark" refer to tagging your files?

    If so you can use tagging software to create your own custom tag FAVOURITES and set it up accordingly in Asset.

    Or you could hi-jack a...

    Re: Support of Gracenote DB

    Gracenote aim for monopoly. Years ago they ripped the community off CDDB when they bought and commercialized it. Still demanding to be exclusive to permit a license. I say boycott that scam business.

    That's a pity. While I understand that XP is old, it's still the best Windows version when you need a lightweight OS for an offline server. I run Asset on a somewhat older laptop and Vista/7/8/10 are...

    Re: Sorting by Album release Oldest first

    You have 2 options:

    Either use ALBUM SORT and tag e.g. "1969 - Abbey Road". Note the space between ALBUM and SORT. Also set the handling of sorting tags in the configuration.

    Or try the new R7...

    Re: Asset UPnP R7

    Hi GBrown! Were you using Mp3tag from scratch, not just to make the edit? Mp3tag writes TPE2 for AlbumArtist, and that as well as Album Artist works in R7.

    I'm interested cause I have a somewhat...

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    So Asset prefers to strip the filenames. That leads me to ask:

    In a big library, would Asset load/scan faster if the artist art files were prepared with stripped filenames to begin with?

    Re: Asset Year Ascending vs Descending

    You can tag e.g. "ALBUM SORT=1969 - Abbey Road" and then select your preferred handling of sorting tags in the settings.

    Then when you browse by ALBUM they will be sorted chronologically.

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    That is not correct, in Windows it's case-insensitive, with or without spaces. All of these works:

    "Bob Dylan.png", "bob dylan.png", "BobDylan.png" and "bobdylan.png".
