Composer/classical music support

Post by camaron »

Guayadeque has very decent support for the COMPOSER tag (and so for classical music lovers), but in two or three point falls behind ARTIST/ALBUM ARTIST.

-COPY TO function does not support COMPOSER as a sorting option
-It is not possible to sort/search by COMPOSER in Browser view (and COMPOSER information is not included with thumbnails)
-Guayadeque by default and as only option uses the configuration composer>artist>album, so no option in preferences to have composer>album>artist

Any hope that these (or some of these) features might be included in the future?

Whichever way thanks for your great player.

I don't have much classical music so these features wouldn't be that useful to me but I know that there is a lot people that listen to classical music and are looking for a player that suits their needs.
Guayadeque does a good job, but this features will make it even better.

Another common request that I see is support for the Conductor field.

Nice to get support on this one, sometimes I feel like I'm the the only one that listens to classical music on the planet (but I know I'm not....)

Tips and Tricks
Composer can now be used with {c} in 'Copy to...' functions

Continuing with my personal battle for equal support of the tag Composer :) These are two old grievances....

-The "Select..." function is very useful and I use it regularly, but doesn't include Composer

-The browser view can't filter by Composer.

Any chance....?

As always thanks for your unique player.

I also battle for Album Artists' rights!

-Select from the playlist does not include Album Artist

-The browser cannot be sorted by Album Artists

Equal rights for Composers and Album Artists!! :)
