    “Browse on Spotify with special characters”

    Hi:

    I am going on testing the “Browse on Spotify” feature. It seems that the matching between my local author tag name and the Spotify author tag name has to be perfect.

    I am having problems with this “ ‘ “character.

    Example

    Des’ree
    Dustin O’Halloran
    Gisbert O’Sullivan

    I am changing my 421 authors (114) because when it works ok, it is very interesting.

    Could you help me?

    Thank you

    JP

    It's funny that your examples would be using somethinge else than what
    you'd claim was the problem... But anyway: yes, you're right. Those
    characters could make the comparison fail. It currently only strips out
    straight ' and " during the comparison. But what you're using aren't
    even simple backticks, but something more specific. LMS uses a list
    which perl considers punctuation characters (see eg.
    https://www.petefreitag.com/cheatshe...acter-classes/).

    Hi Michael,

    maybe you have an idea why I'm not able to play any album from the artist 'Konami Kukeiha Club'
    Doesn't matter if I look it up and try to start it via any SB itself or LMS frontend. SBs itself state unable to open file. I Also realized that LMS frontend is displaying japanese characters correctly while SB is displaying glyphs.

    I see the same. If I use the Spotify android app then most albums don't appear to be available. The one that does plays OK.

    Thank you very much Michael.

    Well, I took a look to the list of accepted characters you sent me. I think these are single quotes, no backticks. This forum changes the correct quotes I am writing

    I use these straight ' and ". Now, I think I wrote them correctly now

    It is in the punctuation characters list you sent me. The second one. The first one is !

    Spotify uses this kind of characters for some authors.

    Regards

    JP.
