Just found out another limiting factor with mythmusic. And that is that
when scanning for songs and adding such without id3 tags. In the setup
it is possible to enter a pattern for the storage directory like
GENRE/ARTIST/ALBUM/TITLE and such. I miss a NULL or IGNORE keyword here.
I also miss a "broken in two" keyword, such as ARTIST-ALBUM.
This is some example of how I store my pretty large collection:
Albums/2001/York - Experience/01-Awakening.mp3
What happens is that the first subdirectory is interpreted as something
that actually has to do with the song's title or artist. With such a
NULL keyword that I'm asking for, the first subdirectory level could be
Also, since there is no "broke in two" keyword for Artist-Album, the
artist will be called "York - Experience" whereas the real thing should
be Artist=York and Album=Experience.
