v18 custom music nodes
#1
Hi there,
I have a question regarding nodes and in particular creating custom nodes with xml files in the userdata folder.
Firstly I have successfully created a custom node, the problem I face is getting it to work. I have read how Kodi is going down the path of promoting the use of musicbrainz for tagging of music files. I do not use it myself, but after reading various stuff on the musicbrainz website and in particular the tag mappings page, I decided to start using some of the tag fields they use. In particular releasestatus (eg. official, promotional, bootleg, pseudo-release) and releasetype (eg. album, single, ep, compilation, soundtrack etc). I thought this would be a good way to sort given that currently I use a bastardised system that has this info under the genre tag (which I'm not overly happy with). So I redid some of my file tags and set up a custom node for albums and attempted to seperate out any bootlegs only to find that <rule field="releasetype" does not work. If musicbrainz tagging is being encouraged -

1. should not any tag field used by musicbrainz be available for node rules? (also refer kodi.wiki/view/Music_tagging 4.1)
2. what rule fields are available, is there a list somewhere?
3. if I use custom tag fields am I able to add/create my own rule fields?

and as an aside

4. as far as the albumartist tag field goes (with reference to Settings> Media> Show song and album artists) you can have one off (singular) artists appear or not appear in your artist node for example, but how would you create a node that only showed those singular artists?
