Music library - removing titles to start over?
#1
I think the title sums it up - I have ended up with about a dozen albums that are "stuck" in a new build of Kodi. I had reorganised my music files looking forward to viewing in library mode rather than just file mode as I had always done previously. I followed piccard default and did artist/album/track no song title, but reading the how to it seems I would have been better with artist/album/track no - artist - song title. They are nearly all wavs. I scanned the whole library and got a lot of nonsense - mostly due to a various artists album that I'd made, which contained flacs that are all tagged. I deleted the library to start over having removed the various album, but around a dozen albums are stuck - I think because at some point I managed to find a way of scanning them individually? I would like to just clear the music and start over - last time I tried I ended up taking out tv shows for some reason! Must admit have had a lot of trouble using the latest interface but now going to stick with Confluence which although somewhat altered is easier for me.

You state that your music files are mostly WAV. How have you embedded tags in them?

The Music Library completely ignores file and folder names of music files. The Music Library requires embedded tags.

If you have run MusicBrainz Picard on your FLAC files, then your FLAC files are accurate, and it is your WAV files messing up your library.

All you need to do is delete your Source, then run a Clean Library. All should be cleared out.

So, I cannot use wav's in Kodi if I want it all to be recognised?  I know you can't tag wav files, that's why I thought the point was to organise and name them correctly.

Tagscanner supports WAV tagging.

Although FLAC will give you much smaller files and has better support for tagging across multiple applications.

Hmmm, @DaveBlake can correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that Kodi does not read wav tags, but will read wav from a cuesheet.

Have you scanned tagged wav files into the library @HomerJau?
