View Full Version : Composer field using ; a sep char causes Artists field to disappear

Under an album when browsing by artist, I've noticed some tracks do not have their Artists displayed in the web listing for certain (albumartist=)Various Artists compilations.

I discovered that such tracks had a ';' character in their Composer fields, separating the various composers. When composers have a ; as the separator character, Artist will not show up.

Changing the ; to a / (which is the specified seperator character for ID3v2.3) allows Artist to appear.

It seems that WMP-tagged data uses the ; character instead of the / character. Still, a ; instead of / probably should not cause Artist to stop appearing.

Can someone who's knowledgable about the code here comment on this? Is this a bug?

I'm hoping someone has a little info on this. Anyone?
