I have noticed with version 5.3e, when I scan an album with mixed artists, it does not read Album Artist from MP3 tag. It just sets it to "Various Artists".

With version 5.3b this is not happening, it reads the MP3 tag correct (same album).

Do I miss a setting in my 5.3e instance ?

Ii think between those version a detection is added to put Various Artist when it detects multiple artists. This was added because it happened a lot that album artists was missing or not set at all. But when you use the folder names you can force that album names are correctly read. Tags are used different between tagging programs and between users and hard to get a solution that works for all.

That's ok, I just fix it manually after scanning.

Was afraid I was missing a setting ;-)
