REQ: Detect collaborations in music files / Show songs from compilations

mbirthmbirth Posts: 9Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Two requests:


1. Plex should detect collaborations, e.g. songs from "D.Kay and DJ Lee", "D.Kay & Epsilon" and "D.Kay and Mat" should all be shown under the artist "D.Kay" and each under the other collaborator's name, too. Currently, Plex creates 3 artists in the form "D.Kay and xxx".


This should also detect featured artists in the Artist- as well as the Title-tag. E.g. Artist: "xxx feat. yyy" or Title "songtitle (featuring yyy)". 



2. Tracks from compilations ("Various Artists") should also appear on the artists's page. So that I can find all songs from e.g. "TC" on their artist page instead of having to search for "TC" and find various songs with "TC" in the title.

    I second this request, esp. the issue about the "various artists" / album artist.

    it might add some complexity to the database and metadata gathering but otherwise my complilations are not fully usable.
