Questions / Artwork for .dsf-files
August 24, 2021, 13:08:14
I recognized a strange behaviour when gmb chooses cover art for .dsf-files.
I know this files are kind of special but they get imported and play well - thanks for that feature!

All my audio files are stored on a NAS. I usually put a "front.jpg" and a "tray.jpg" in each album folder.
As I started to use rasperry pi's with runeaudio, mpd or runeaudio created additional "coverart.jpg" and "thumb.jpg".

After importing my 5600 .dsf-files into gmb some albums use the "front.jpg" but most use "thumb.jpg".
Looks like embed artwork is not used with .dsf-files at all.

For some albums I named the musicfolders like "artist - album CD1", "artist - album CD2". It happens that CD1 uses "front.jpg" while CD2 uses "thumb.jpg".

Kind of weird, isn't it?
There is no question here, just an observation.
Questions / Re: composer/conductor tag empty
July 20, 2021, 17:26:49
For me this worked:
Einstellungen --> Felder --> Komponist aktivieren
afterwards mark some tracks --> right click --> Tags neu einlesen
Attention: I first tried to mark all tracks with missing composer/conductor and reread tags - all RAM was used then and the Computer stucked. Better not do it with 3000 tracks at once.
After installing gmb I enabled composer and conductor, restarted gmb and was surprised that gmb didn't recognize composser and conductor.
But now this fields fill up with importing new tracks - just perfect.
Questions / composer/conductor tag empty

Any idea why composer/conductor tag fields are empty in gmb although they show up in quodlibet or in wine/foobar2000?
This problem occures with mp3, flac, alac, dsd.
Conductor is empty in most cases , some composers show up, even in a compilation album with more composers i would see one but not the others.
I use Arch Linux with gmusicbrowser-git
