Re: multiple genres

Re: multiple genres

How I have to do it so that track is put into different genres? At the moment I use the syntax "Funk\\Jazz" and Serviio makes a new genre out of it. But I want the track to be shown me in the two genres funk and jazz.

Best Regards

Re: multiple genres

Ah, I was talking about video. Can audio even be in multiple genres via id3 tags?

Re: multiple genres

Aparently there is no standard. Here they suggest semicolon: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-m ... s-in-mp3s/

Here they suggest the same as you: https://community.mp3tag.de/t/multiple- ... ag/17159/3

I'll create a ticket.

Re: multiple genres

Hi

In the release 1.10 you added the support for multiple genres in audio files.
Can you tell me which is the character of the separation?

Kind regards

Re: multiple genres

Very good thank you. But is the character forward slash a good choice? Is this not used for the Gendre "Jazz/Funk" or "Pop/Rock" etc.?
