Featured artist in the artist list

Post by Hinge » Fri May 17, 2013 1:17 pm

Just a question on whether I can filter out feat. artists in the album list of the database.

Does this already exist and I just haven't found it yet?

It's a feature (no pun intended) I use a lot in XBMC so that artists like David Guetta who have albums that "feat." another artist on almost every track can be filtered down to just David Guetta "Album Name" not;

David Guetta "Album Name" feat. Snoop Dog
David Guetta "Album Name" feat. Snow White
David Guetta "Album Name" feat. King David
David Guetta "Album Name" feat. Satan

Ok never mind on this question, I think I found the answer.

There is a "Detect 'album artist' tag and group albums by it's value ignoring various artist of the album"

I think I need to rescan the database to make it work, but that appears to be the function I was looking for.

Hi! :) Yes, ALB.ARTIST option in Settings -> Database is the one you needed.
