6b6561 Posted September 22, 2021 Share Posted September 22, 2021 @andrewilley@maxmp I think ""albums" would be a candidate for a FAQ article, as "albums" comes up every now and then in the forums and a non-technical user will not understand that there is no such thing as an album as there is nothing in the tag world that would form an album. "album" is used all across the GUI, and these are seen as an album by the average user. - What forms an "album": Tracks that have the same "Album artist"(TPE2) & "Album title"(TALB). - Is there a "album" table in the Poweramp DB or is the album views dynamically created when needed? - What Year (TYER) and what Artwork is displayed for an "album"? Use case, compilation album with different years in the tags. Is it taken from the first/last/"random" track added in the album? Will it change if tracks are later added that are part of the same "album"? - If the Year and Artwork comes from first/last file added to an album, will that affect the album? - Date added? Is this the date of when the "album" where created the first time? Or is it the date when the first/last/"random" files are added to the album? Will it change if tracks are later added that are part of the same "album"? - Will files of different formats be considered the same "album"? Maybe a candidate for a feature request "Option to separate albums by file type" - Album length, will the album length be change if tracks are added/removed from the album? - What happens to an "album" on a full re-scan? Will it be re-created from scratch? (assuming that there is a DB table for "albums") - Other? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
