Duplicate albums in mediabrowser

I have a lot of "Various Artists" albums - unfortunately MediaBrowser shows each album one per artist - so I end up with literally hundreds of duplicate albums, each with a single track in.

Is there anyway to fix this?

Re: Duplicate albums in mediabrowser

Serviio looks at the AlbumArtist tag and uses that to identify albums. SO maybe your tags are the other way around?

In you case I'd say AlbumArtist should be Various Artists (or similar), and then you would have an Artist for each track.

Can you post some metadata for a few of these files? Try mediainfo, for example.

Re: Duplicate albums in mediabrowser

I forgot to check the email me about replies so apologies for the long time in responding.

I suspect my tags are wrong - most of these were ripped using either abcde or cdex.

I'll check the tags/post some metadata shortly.
