Various Artists - Set as "part of compilation"

Postby corias » Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:25 am

Hello,

Is there a way to set "various artists" tracks as "part of a compilation" in the "TAG" tab.
I know that there's a button in "online" tab but I can't fine a way to set my "Various Artists" CD as part of compliation in TAG tab.

In consequence other softwares (like Itunes for exemple )don't recognize these CD as a single one, even if I use the online function and "tick to force"

Sorry for bad english (I'm french)

And thanks for your help!

What file types are you using (mp4?) and what field do you want to update?

I use essentially mp3 files...I update differents fields. Update of fields are successful.
I just want that when one CD contains differents artists and titles (but same album name), it would be recognise like part of the same compilation (not differents artists with the same album name)

I see, you must want to use the album artist field then, you can do that right now but not in batch.
I have it in mind to implement that in the next release.

Open the full tag edit dialog go to the second page and fill the band/orchestra/accompaniment field, do this for  an album to see if it works.
If it does there are 2 ways to make this faster, let me know what happens.
