    I have some compilation albums in my music database. I've tagged songs that are on a compilation album with the Albumartist variable "Various artists".

    In Ampdroid when i scroll through the artists view in the music section, it shows both the Albumartists names and the Artists names. When I selected the Artist name of a artist which is also tagged with the Albumartists variable set to "Various artists" it won't show any album or songs. It will only show up when I open the artist "Various Artists" and then select the album in which the artist resides.

    It's not quite usefull, since I don't always know exactly in which compilation album those artists reside.

    Is this a know bug. Or can I change this somehow?

    If tagged all my mp3's the way Mediaportal suggests. So retagging them in a different way is not really an option.

    Hello Erik070,

    I have the same problem (my post from may 12th 2015). Have you found a solution for that in the meantime? It seems that this is a bug but no one cares!
