    LMS 7.9.4 Track Info Display

    In LMS 8.0 track display in the Classic skin shows the Artist tag in the Now Playing pane. In the 7.9.4 Classic skin it shows the Album Artist rather than the Artist tag. Would it be possible to change 7.9.4 to show the Artist tag rather than the Album Artist tag? I've attached examples of both the 7.9.4 and 8.0 display.

    Are you sure they both are configured exactly the same? I would be
    surprised if I had updated the Classic skin in 8.0 (only). But I haven't
    double checked yet.

    I'm pretty sure they are the same, but I'm not sure where I'd look! I run the same plugins on both, Formatting and Interface are set the same, the iTunes plugin is removed on both. Any other places I should look?

    LMS 7.9.4 Track Info Display

    I can't reproduce this. Could you please post the full metadata of one
    such track as reported by the "View Tags" item from the track info menu?

    I've attached the tags for each system. They are copies of the same file. Each system is fully self contained with it's own library.

    A note on the 8.0 system. It shows both the Album Artist followed by the Artist. The 7.9.4 system just shows the Album Artist.

    Sorry for so many replies, but it seems you don't see forum message edits.

    I also see there's full info in the currently playing track on the 8.0 system, it shows the Album title and Artist in addition to the track title and duration. You'll have to view the screen clips in my first post to see the differences between 7.9.4 and 8.0 displays.

    Kid and Michael, - repost to add attachment
    It turns out it's a playlist format issue. I was building the playlist from Material skin by getting my songs into the now playing window and then clicking the Save icon above the list. It saves the Playlist in this funky format (see playlist "Stuff 2o" in attached zip). I reformatted the list (see playlist "Stuff 2" in attached zip) and it now shows the Artist in the now playing pane. Now I have a new problem. In the "Stuff 2" list you'll find a song #51 by "Blue Íyster Cult" is ignored. I believe this is because the "Stuff 2" playlist is a UTF8 file with the preceding BOM. In the last paragraph on page 40 of the Unicode spec it states ôUse of a BOM is neither required nor recommended for UTF-8ö .
    http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unic...andard-9.0.pdf
    I've tried it both with and without BOM and the song is still ignored. I use UTF8 so that the playlist (Stuff 2) is transportable between the music player on my phone where the Blue Íyster Cult song is recognized just fine.

    This leaves me with 2 things;

    1. How do I save the playlist from the right pane in a format of <drive>:<Folder>/whatever in a regular playlist format rather than this funky almost URL format
    tmp:///P:/ServerFolders/MP3%20Music/Time%20Life/1965/05%20Just%20a%20Little.mp3

    2. Shouldn't LMS work just fine with UTF8 playlists with and without BOM?

    Should I start new threads for these 2 things?

    Thanks for putting up with all this!

    Wilkes
