can you remember if the old (working) code for mt-daapd with xbmc saent back empty tags? is adding in empty tags for some of the key elements something you would consider? do you consider this a bug with xmbc not mt-daapd?
Nope, I never did, I don’t think. I wouldn’t say it’s a bug either way… the spec is totally unknown, and iTunes accepts either. I don’t have a problem returning empty fields, but that doesn’t seem to be the secret. I dummied up the code to always return all fields, but that didn’t seem to fix it.
So it seems to be something else.
Let me dig up my patch to fully populate all fields, and I’ll let you try it.
