    Album split in two parts

    Hi,

    I have AssetUPnP running on a Raspi accessing my TrueNAS media folders. Usually all albums there are in one folder. But why does Asset split one album / one folder in two separate albums where one has 6 tracks and the other one has 3? I do not understand any reason on my side for this mistake in indexing. Any ideas?

    Because often people have albums which have the same name, such as 'Greatest hits' and no indication they are compilation albums. At a guess 99.999% of people have albums always in the same folders, so it is an easy assumption that albums are identified both by album name and location.

    In your case this is not the case, so there is an option on the configuration page 'Album Defined by Folder', uncheck it.

    Sorry I do not get it. It is not a compilation album. Just look at the screenshots.

    The fix is to correct compilation albums, yours is not, however it is my understanding your album is in different folders, that is why asset is putting as 2 albums. Either bring all the album files to one folder, or un check the option I mentioned.

    No, if you do not have dbpoweramp, install the trial here:

    https://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm

    We need to see the ID Tags inside those files.

    Now I see a difference matching to the two different groups: for one the Album Artist entry is missing.
