Music New Features/Improvements Request Summary
Hi, you know when you are watching a film you can amplify the volume in the audio subtitles menu.

When I use music player there is no option to amplify

This means I can play a movie at a much higher volume than any of my music.

Can you please add volume amplification to the music player also as its my music I want pounding out into the street not any movie

I would humbly like to request a new rule filter for smartplaylists: No. of channels. Sometimes I would just like to listen to my multichannel music. I guess I could do it via path or source but at the moment my files are sorted by genre and resorting them would add an extra level of complexity that feels too much right now. With a channel rule + a genre rule I could do so much more. Thanks in advance!

I would really like to see KODI support the universal FMPS standard (FMPS_RATING tag) along with the RATING & POPM tag

The fmps_rating is already fully supported (read/write) by a lot of music players like Amarok, Clementine, Cantata (mpd client) Rhythmbox, Banshee etc.
So a lot of users have their library rated with the fmps_rating tag but on KODI is not usable / visible.
Also there is no easy solution as i can see for a user to convert the fmps_rating tag to POPM or RATING to be able to use it with KODI.

Hi Dave,

there's one display issue for albums I would love to see sorted out. We all know that many of those old bands we love churn out remasters of their catalogue. I would like to use Manfred Mann's Earth Band as an example, but this is equally true for many other bands like Pink Floyd etc.

MMEB has issued a remaster of their complete catalogue titled "40th Anniversary". When tagged with musicbrainz, all their albums indiscriminately bear the title "40th Anniversary" and only the true connoisseur is able to distinguish which is which by song title or album cover when playing in Kodi (they also tag with the bloody beautified apostrophe in "Manfred Mann’s Earth Band" which I correct every time - don't get me started). To add insult to injury, all of these albums now bear the year of the Anniversary release.

However, all of the releases are also tagged with a <DISCSUBTITLE> tag where the correct album name lives. Discogs also sometimes uses this method but writes the tag as <DISC_SUBTITLE>.

To cut a long story short, the solution I see would be to let these tags take priority over the <ALBUM> tag. Contrary to its name, <DISCSUBTITLE> would replace the title and <ALBUM> would be degraded to subtitle in these cases. Of course, it could also work the other way around but the <DISCSUBTITLE> contains the information I feel is more crucial when presenting an album.

Thanks for adding it to your pile!

 What I see on MB is that "40th Anniversary" is a box set with a single bar code and containing 21 physical CDs.  So the problem appears to  be one of "boxed sets" and titles for media within a set.
