    Dynamic naming

    Can someone help me please. I store my music on a QNAP network drive and have recently added a folder called "Lounge Music" containing hundreds of individual random songs, all by different artists. All plays fine except when I use my iPhone app to view albums or artists, each individual track shows up as a different album or artist making it difficult to see the proper albums or artists.
    I think I can use DB Batch to better structure the "lounge" folder and its tracks contained within. I'd like the file folder name, "Lounge music", to be both the "album" and "artist" name for every song contained in it, such that on my iPhone app, I only see ONE entry under either Album or Artist, called "lounge music"
    When I run DB Batch, what dynamic naming format ie [artist]\[track] combination etc should I pick to achieve what I want?
    Thanks

    Are you using UPnP?

    If you install Asset UPnP on the QNAP:

    https://www.dbpoweramp.com/asset-upnp-dlna.htm

    You can browse Asset >> Additional >> File and Folder Browsing

    Changing the filenames will not help you with your existing as the ID Tags are used for browsing.
