v17 Deduplication of tracks with idential MUSICBRAINZ ID
#1
Hello,

this album https://musicbrainz.org/release/714ae6d3...7ddbb104af has two tracks (first on each disc) that have the same musicbrainz ID https://musicbrainz.org/recording/1473c9...92df220873

I still have this file twice, with different DISCNUMBER and different filename in different folders. Kodi shows this file just once, omiting the track from the first disc.

* Is my assumption correct that Kodi omits displaying the file twice because of identlical MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID?

* Is this a Kodi bug or by design?

* Is this Musicbranz policy to give different tracks the same ID when they are identical?

Best Thanks!

See http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=305203

Just like buses, nothing for ages (ever) and then two come at once.
It is a flaw, Kodi was designed assuming that MB track ID was unique per album, it isn't recordings can be repeated. A fix is ready for v18. Just read the other thread, in fact I may even merge them.

Oh, overlooked that other thread.

I'm fine with merging or even deleting my thread alltogether, it's exactly the same issue.

Thanks for the Kodi ecosystem (Kodi, add-ons, Android remote controls). Keep up the fine work!
