Weird sorting/tag problem
#14
Three ideas on that:

1.) If scanning results in one ID with different names (aliases/artist credits), Kodi could ask the user what name it should use. Possible would be to scrape the standardized artist name from MB and offer that as choice, too. Together with the possibility to enter a custom name it would lead to:
  1. use one of the aliases
  2. use standardized artist name
  3. use custom name
2.) As we have Boxsets, we have another node. Using this for aliases could result in:
Prince
 |-TAFKAP
 |      |-Album1
 |      |-Album2
 |-Love symbol
 |      |-Album1
 |-Prince
 |      |-Album1
 |      |-Album2
 |      |-Album3

So there are subnodes like CDs with Boxsets for every alias.

Adding another setting, analog to Albumartists onlý <-> Album- & Trackartists, being Standardized Artist only <-> Standardized & Aliases. If using the later, the artists node would include aliases as separate artists.

3.) Combination of 1.) & 2.)  (which would be my favorite Wink

Nevertheless, an artist credit may not be tied to an MBID as name within Kodi (if Max Herre appears credited as Max only, it should be clear to be a credit and not the name).

Thoughts?
