Album artist not visible/useable at all

Added by K A over 4 years ago

Hi, I'm using Xubuntu 14.10 and have latest (3.6.1) Audacious from ppa. The problem is, "Album artist" field doesn't work at all in the program: it shows empty column, if I enter something in song info and save it doesn't get saved with other values and I cannot search by album artist. The last one is a real problem when it comes to VA albums. Can somebody suggest any change?

Hi, which message is printed in the song info dialog if you save? "Save successful" or "Save error"?

Attaching an example file would also help.

Everything works "fine", there are no error messages. Save is successful.
I send one file from these visible in the screen, but problem occures with all files in my playlist - other players have no problem with that.

To clarify: problem occures with both MP3 and FLAC files, I don't have others in my library.

I cannot reproduce the problem with the attached file.
The column "Album Artist" is displayed correctly, not empty as in the screenshot.

I'm having this issue now with 3.9 gtk3 version. I have tested only mp3 and m4a files,
and album artist does not show in the playlist or in the song info dialog.
