Artists being labeled as unknown artist

Postby lackii650 » Fri Jul 13, 2012 11:05 pm

Has anyone else got the problem with artists or albums being under unknown artist and when you re-tag them as what artist they are it does nothing they stay as unknown artist. Really annoying cause 300 songs are in unknown artist. Some albums have 10 songs of 13 as unknown artist and the other 3 are know for the real artist. I have the same songs on my computer in iTunes and I do not have this problem.
Thanks

Hi,

It is a bug with the android media scanner where some file types are not correctly read by the media scanner. In particular wma and m4a types are known not to be well supported by the android media scanner.
I would suggest your convert to mp3.

Hi Tristan,

I have the same problem, but my files are mp3s. Both Power Amp and GoneMAD pick up the Artists fine. Currently, none of the artists are being picked up in Player Pro. So are you sure this is a problem with Media Scanner when those programs both work fine?

Hi All


A bug is all well and good, but how to fix it...?

I am running FLAC files and have a bunch of unknowns too.
I have tried re-editing the tags and all sorts - there must be a way to fix it, surely..?


Any info, advice appreciated.


Cheers

I found that I had to move my files out of a folder called "podcasts". Then it was fine and all artists were picked up.

Trouble is, I had them in a folder called "podcasts" because then PlayerPro remembers the track position if you pause and come back to it.

Hi,

There is a knonwn a bug with the android media scanner where m4a files are not well supported by the android media scanner.
I would suggest you to convert those files to mp3. There's nothing I can do about it as that would mean re-implementing the media store / media scanner.

Best Regards,
Tristan

Do you know why Player Pro doesn't pick up track information, like artist or song name, if in a folder called "podcasts" when other players do?
