Kodi Music "Best Practice" Guide

1) Yes. if you have lots of comilation albums with songs from varied artists, and no albums by those artists, or lots of singles, then you will want the artists node to show all the artists not just album artists so enable "Include artisits that only appear on compilations"

2) Folder structure only important if you want to use NFOs or local artwork. That dependancy is something I hope to remove in Krypton, but nothing done yet. Lack of scraper results could be failure to recognise the artists by name so mbids would help, but in Jarvis is possibly because it only re-scrapes album artists. So if the scraper is unsuccesful when the music is first loaded (because the server traffic is too high say), when asked to requery it only does so for album artists. It may be worth trying the nightly, this has a few fixes in it that mean the "query info for all" works better.

3) Picard returns a number of date tags, I think you can set which one gets stored as year.

4) Using the item separator as before is just fine, default is " / ", the spaces matter otherwise "AC/DC" gets spilt. But from Krypton on Kodi is more flexible and will accept a number of different artist separator values configurable by the user.

5) Yes.

6) Using the item separator as before is just fine. But for those that have not tagged so consistently, from Krypton on Kodi will try to handle that too. Say you would like to have "artist1 feat. artist2" show while playing, but have both artists separate in the lists. This is now possible in Krypton.

7) yes.

Hope that helps.
