View Full Version : Support for iTunes "Album is a compilation of songs by various artists" checkbox

Since I do have a mac and occasionally modify tags on it, I'd like to be able to use this handy checkbox without having to modify the "Album Artist" field.

This is just an ID Tag in the files, it is the compilation tag which should be set to '1'.

Right, well the app doesn't seem to recognize it when displaying compilations.

Thanks for the report.

I presume your files are MP3, ripped with iTunes default settings - ID3v2.2 tags. It turns out that we fail to read "compilation" tags from such - in all foobar2000 versions. It has just been fixed for the next update.
