Artist Information in WMP11 under Vista

Post by honey2008 » Sun Dec 02, 2007 4:15 pm

Hi!
WMP11 seems to work automatically great with Twonky UPNP AV, but WMP11 uses a "featuring artist"(ger:"mitwirkender interpret") information instead of the normal "artist" information, so the track-information is always unknown for artist, which sucks..
locally I found out that WMP11 seems to us the %band-mp3tag-variable, which Twonky doesn't serv, is there a posibility to let twonky do that?
Or how to fix WMP? ;)

Thanks

I think you need to set the "Album Artist" tag in your media files.

This tag is already set. When I add the files from the server's share to the WM11 library everything looks fine in WM11. But streaming from Twonky always says "unknown" to the contributing artist. :evil:

Use a decent Media Manager like MediaMonky to set your tags correctly instead of that Micro$oft POS....

Well, I am using Mp3tag for all MP3 purposes. And all tags are set correctly (no probs using the files from my server's share)

Only when I try to stream the share using Twonky it becomes crappy. Maybe I should switch back to firefly where everything was fine. Unfortunately firefly has no upnp support...

How do you get the music to STREAM (instead of copy) in WMP11? When I open http://serverip:9000/webbrowse and click a music file, it copies, opens and plays in WMP11 but where in WMP11 can I point to my TwonkeyMedia server and STREAM the music.

Sorry for being an ignorant Twonkey & WMP11 "newb" :roll:

It only works under Vista and there you should find your Twonky under Network as WindowsMediaConnect

I'm sorry I am such a "ditz" but under Options/Network in WMP11, what do I do?
