When music is added to the BluOS library either through a network share or music ripped to a Vault, the BluOS app will read the ID3 metadata tagged to this music to populate the correct artist name, album name, and track name.
The ID3 metadata used by BluOS is not effected by the folder the music is stored in or the filename of the file itself. To make changes to the ID3 metadata of your music library, you will need to use a third-party metadata editor outside of BluOS.
When making changes to the metadata of your songs, the following tags are used by the BluOS app.
|TITLE||The name of the song|
|ARTIST||The name of the contributing artist on the song|
|ALBUM||The name of the album this song is from|
|ALBUMARTIST||The name of the artist you would like the album to be listed under. This is useful for compilation albums to mark as "Various Artists"|
|TRACK||The number of the track on the album|
|GENRE||The genre of the song or album|
|DISCNUMBER||If using a multiple disk album, this tag can be used to identify which disk the song is from|
|COVER||The album artwork for this song. This image file will need to be less than 600Kb in size.|
After making any changes to your metadata, you will need to inform the BluOS app that changes have been made. To do this, open the BluOS app and go to Settings > Music Library > Reindex Music Collection. Once the reindex is complete, restart your BluOS app and your library will now be populated with your updated metadata.
- While your Bluesound player is indexing the top LED will display as white. Once the index is complete the LED will return to solid blue
- If your metadata is not updating in the BluOS app after a Reindex Music Collection, go to Help > Diagnostics > Rebuild Index to clear the index out entirely and rebuild the index from new
