jjd_uk I get what you are saying, but I don't think you followed me Wink

Yes you can avoid scraping compilation albums in the way you describe, but not always the artists that peform on them.

The music scraper is passed artist name or mbid (if we have it), or album title and artist names(s) or album mbid. It gets these from the music library. It also gets a common path for the artist or album, derived as a lowest common denominator from all the song files that have a relationship with the artist. While it may make sense to have an artist/album folder structure for your music files it is not mandatory, and where songs have multiple artists these artists certainly do not have just one related folder. From this common path the scraper settings are obtained.

Black_eagle wants to skip scraping song artists that are not also album artists, that sounds a good idea to me, and is not possible to do this with folder based scraper settings.
