I have several folders that contain Various Artists (VA)

They are mostly movie soundtracks, with songs from a multiple number of artists.


Example. "VA- Forrest Gump Soundtrack" (1994)

The mobile version of foobar2000 doesn't recognize this for whatever reason..... from the Browse --- Album Artist / Album


It will put each artist in it's own folder, so then you have

Eg. "Forest Gump Soundtrack" by Elvis Presley Song- Hound Dog

Eg. "Forest Gump Soundtrack" by Aretha Franklin Song-Respect

Foobar has somehow determined not to list the entire Various Artists album by itself, instead by one Artist at a time?


Alternatively, I could view it properly from the "folder" view

but why can't it display correctly in the Browse-- Album Artist / Album view?

I am bumping this thread because I have the same problem and it is quite annoying (I have several hundreds of individual file+folders in the album list)!

I suspect there is something to correct in the tags of these albums. Not sure what it is to be corrected however.

Thanks for your help people!
