Bug Description

I have attached a screenshot.

Maybe should you build the view with the albumlist tag instead of the artist tag

I fact it's normal behavior.... because you can have same album name for different artists.

Yarock read first the "Artist of Album", if the tag is filled then it will considered ity as the artist for the album tracks.

In the other case, the "Artist" tag will be used.

So you can use "Artist of Album" with a common name for your tracks.

Another way to fix it, is to select all files and edit to write same Artist tag.

Do not hesitate to send me if you have better idea.

Thank you for answer. But the songs i used for this example are filled with the album artist tag "U2" and yarock detected this as a different album. I have the same album also in Itunes and there it is detected disaplyed correctly.

Hi, can you send me or share somewhere your album mp3 files. I will try to test and see what's happening in this case.
Thanks you

I've sent you a mail with the files.

thanks for looking at this issue.

Hi, good news, it will be solved for the next release. I hope soon but I am very busy with my work....so be patient ;)
In fact the tag reading was not done entirely for the MP4 audio files ...my bad.
