View Full Version : AlbumArtist not scanned with iTunes 7.2 and Apple Lossless files

2007-06-23, 09:48
Is anyone else having this problem? I am using Mac OS X 10.4.9 and iTunes 7.2.

I have tried Slimserver 6.5.1, 6.5.2 and the latest 6.5.3 and all of them no longer pick up the AlbumArtist from iTunes. This seems to be specific to Apple Lossless and AAC files. For MP3 files, the iTunes AlbumArtist is shown in slimserver's Song Info as Band/Orchestra. For Apple Lossless and AAC files, the iTunes AlbumArtist is not shown at all. All the other tags still seem to be scanning as normal.

I have tried several full re-scans and have deleted the Slimserver cache and re-started, but still Slimserver does not pick up the AlbumArtist tags

This used to work fine, so assume something has changed in iTunes 7.2.

Any help would be appreciated, as I find AlbumArtist very useful for organising albums with several different contributing artists.

I couldn't get the iTunes Album Artist tag to appear anywhere either.
Go to the Ripping/Encoding etc section of the forum and search for "AlbumArtist". There was some discussion on this recently.

Edit - Oops, you have been there already, I should have looked before posting.

Are any other users of iTunes with Apple Lossless files having problems with Album Artist not being scanned by Slimserver? I am not sure if this is a bug, or a problem specific to me?

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you
