scarfy Posted November 7, 2014 Share Posted November 7, 2014 I been playing all my music by randomly shuffling albums, using the library view. This all works fine, except for when Poweramp comes to albums with the same name. In this case, all the songs are grouped together into one big playlist, which is rather strange. Instead of getting just all the songs from one album, I get all the tracks from each album played one after the other. In this case, I have albums by Feeder and Basement Jaxx called "The Singles", as well as some singles bought from Amazon from greatest hits albums also called "The Singles". The results is that Poweramp will play track 1 from Feeder, then track 1 from Basement Jaxx. Then track 2 from Feeder, and then track 2 from Basement Jaxx, and so on, eventually throwing in the random singles when their track number matches. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a way around it? Is this what the album artist tag is suppose to solve..? Could changing the list view settings in the Album library view fix things? Right now, I've got it set to "By Name". If I use "By Artist" will that cure the issue, or will that have no impact..? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
