multiple album covers in album view

Post by Bazsek » Fri Apr 05, 2013 3:36 am

Hi!
The album art is a soundtrack album that is different, but the artist are assigned to this album. In this case, in album view, the album cover will be displayed in multiple.
How to solve this problem?
Thanks

Do all tracks on the Album have the same Album Artist?

I'd presume that is the problem as with a different Album Artist it isn't the same Album (at least that's the way MMW treats it).

I think Lowlander is right. To expand on what he means. Your album should have the "Artist" tagged with the artist names, and Album Artist to something like "Various", which is what I do.

Okay, but that's not right. The album name and artist name is the same, just the album artist name are different. Do not show multiplied album covers!

In MediaMonkey files with the same Album and Album Artist values are considered an Album. If Album Artist values are different they're considered different Albums and thus displayed separately. The value of Artist is irrelevant for determining an Album.

Thank you for the information.
I understand, but it is not reasonable.
