I have a small question regarding music-file metadata that I would like to get some insight on. My programming skills are not quite there yet to try to understand the source-code myself…
I have Mopidy running on an Raspberry Pi, and have a bunch of local music files on my hard-drive that I’ve gathered over the years. Ever since I discovered ‘beets’ music library organizer I’ve used it extensively to get the id3-tags right and files sorted nicely. Currently, I’m quite happy with how everything is neatly in place, and more importantly, automated.
I’ve been wondering how I could have the “full” id3-information available through Mopidy, for example the Label/Publisher information, since I use this extensively to navigate through my music collection.
Am I correct in assuming that in it’s current implementation, the label/publisher field doesn’t get through into the Mopidy local music database? At least querying from the web-frontend (Iris) doesn’t seem to give results based on Publisher/Label information.
I also tried to get the metadata through the Mopidy-Beets interface via setting up a separate beets webserver (beets-web) and passing on the info that way, but to no avail. This seems to be an issue with beets-web and not mopidy-beets though ( the label-info is not accessible through the web-interface either ).
Would anyone with more experience regarding Mopidy inner workings wanna shed some light / insights / ideas on the topic?
Here’s an example how the full metadata might look like from different perspectives:
