Solved Problem with multiple artists albums
#1
Hi everybody,
I'm a fairly new Kodi user and I'm trying to make order in my music library.
I have a strange issue with multiple artists albums, hope I can find help here.

Let's take as example "Laika come home" by Spacemonkeyz vs. Gorillaz. This is the name of the collaboration between two different artists (Spacemonkeyz and Gorillaz).

What I expect to have:
Two album entries in my music library, one for every artist (one for Gorillaz and one for Spacemonkeyz). The album artist should be Spacemonkeyz vs. Gorillaz.

What I did:
I tagged the album with Musicbrainz Picard, here is the screenshot:

What happened:
I can see the album appearing in the Gorillaz list as expected, but instead of having Spacemonkeyz as second artist, I have Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz.
I also looked in the album.nfo file, and it shows two artists (Gorillaz and Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz). The same with the Artist Information Folder.
I guess editing the album.nfo file should do the trick, but I don't get it... What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

One problem is that vs. is not recognised as a separator by default. You will need to add that to your advancedsettings.xml file.

See lines 8-14 here... https://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings....siclibrary Ensure you include spaces either side of vs.

Also you will need to add the albumartists tag, (plural). Instructions to do that are in the paragraph under the image here... https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2760161
