I don't understand why all my music artist/genre/album etc. are classified under misc/unknown given the fact that I'm confident that 90% of 200G music do have metadata. I managed to get the source of
emms-print-metadata and installed it, tested it on an
mp3 and it does return a result. I have the following configuration. There is nothing special: I just followed the documentation and tweaked a bit to use
mpv as default player.
(use-package emms :ensure t :requires (emms-setup emms-player-mpv) :config (emms-all) (setq emms-player-list '(emms-player-mpv) emms-browser-covers 'emms-browser-cache-thumbnail-async emms-source-file-default-directory "~/Music/" emms-info-functions '(emms-info-libtag) emms-player-mpv-parameters '("--really-quiet" "--no-video")) (when (executable-find "emms-print-metadata") (require 'emms-info-libtag) (add-to-list 'emms-info-functions 'emms-info-libtag)))
Question. How to let
emms understand metadata and display them correctly in
emms-browser-search-by-* buffers ?
