dvhttn Posted June 11, 2022 Share Posted June 11, 2022 (edited) OK. I noticed that one artist in my collection, under the 'Artist' view, was down as 'T.g. Sheppard'. As this knawed at my OCD'ish nature I decided to re-tag it to be correct. Lo and behold it was correct. i.e. the artist tag was 'T.G. Sheppard' (note the space after the second period). I checked with mp3tag, Tagscanner and even Groove music on my PC and they all had it tagged correctly. I checked the same file on the phone and it was also correct there (used mixplorer to get to the file location and it showed the metadata as correct). Also, if I use Poweramp to play this song and look at the 'Info/Tags' display this also shows the artist as correct as above. I copied the file and changed the artist tag to be 'T.G.Sheppard' (no space after the second period!) and this time the artist view (after a 'rescan' of course) was also correct. So it appears that the artist view can be upset by a period followed by a space ..... The views I have noticed to be wrong are, as said, the artist view and, on the main player screen where you have the bar that has a left/right/left animation of the artist name and album name. The question is, is this a minor bug or is there some setting that can alter how this character combination is interpreted? I have test files I could send but this seems fairly trivial to reproduce. Phone is a Note9 running Android 12 and Poweramp is version 939. Oh, and a screenshot is attached to show what I mean. Thanks. Dave Edited June 11, 2022 by dvhttn Added screenshot.
