Export music library
#1
Just realized that Kodi supports exporting its music library. This is fantastic and should give me album art in local file for each album, which is great.

I also noticed though one limitation on the wiki (http://kodi.wiki/view/Import-export_libr....2F_Import), which may be quite major:
Quote:Note: There are weaknesses in the way that Kodi determines the location of the artist directory. It looks for the folder that is common to all the songs with that album artist, the name of that folder is irrelevent. If you have multiple albums by an artist all under an artist folder then this works perfectly. However the algorithm does not work for collaboration albums, those that have more than one album artist e.g. "Riding with the King" by Eric Clapton and BB King, or classical music with composer, orchestra and conductor given as the album artist. It also gets confused when you have only one album by an artist, and takes the album directory as the artist directory. Also if you have not kept all songs by an artist under a unique folder, then the artist directory will probably be mis-identified. The result for export is that the artist.NFO file goes somewhere unexpected, and that location may not be unique, so the NFO will contain the artist information from the last album artist exported

If I understand this correctly, the artist.nfo is saved in the album folder in cases where I only have one album. Is there any chance to have a "fix" for this?
