    Great catch! MAI indeed does not respect the contributor role but just
    picks the first track/album for which he is a contributor.

    I'd recommend you define an artwork folder and put an image in there for
    Jeff Beck etc. Those files have highest priority. At least until I've
    fixed the behaviour.

    And enable pre-caching. It's about pre-caching resized artwork for
    quicker rendering when you browse artists.

    That was fast. MAI v1.6.14 works fine. Thanks!

    Problems with slash "/" in song titles

    Hi, I am a happy and grateful user of the LMS MAI plugin. Thank you for developing and maintaining it.

    I now have LMS running on a Raspberry Pi 4B with piCorePlayer - moved from a model 3B last week, and the speed difference is really impressive.

    However, I have a problem with song titles that involve a slash ("/") which is of course not permitted in Unix/Linux file names.

    When a slash character is present in the song titles, it means that MAI will search for lyrics for quite a long time, and for some strange reason, it tends to make my system less responsive afterwards.

    One solution is to replace the slash character in song titles by e.g. a dash, but that is awkward in some situations, where the slash comes more natural af part of the name. At least in my language.

    So, from my perspective it could be great, if MAI could replace a slash character in songtitles with e.g. a dash "-" when looking up song lyrics, be it via the web or locally stored text files. And of course use the dash character in the file names stored locally.

    Is that an option that can be considered for implementation in a future version of MAI?

    Could you please enable info logging for plugin.musicartistinfo
    (Settings/Advanced/Logging), try to bring up infos for such a song, then
    provide your full server.log.zip:

    I'd consider it a bug if it eg. started searching from the root of your
    file system because of that slash...
