Album Review

Post by mikehadfield » 01 Jul 2017, 13:05

I am using the Amber skin on a FireTV.

I have loads of audio book stuff in my library that contains a brief synopsis in the album review tag. But none of the views are showing the text. They all say "No review for this album".

Is there a way this can be enabled?

I dont use Audio books, but if you can explain to me how to reproduce I am sure we can look into fixing it.

My audiobooks are just mp3 files, so are treated just like any music album.

In plex, when you edit the album details there is a field called "review". In this field I have put details about the album. I the plex web interface it shows this review text field as part of the details page for the album. In the official plex app on the firetv you can press the "i" button on screen to show this review info.

On MrMC, if I go into my audiobooks (I have them all tagged using audiobook as the artist) and I am in either the big list, big panel or fanart views then below the album title on the left it says "No review for this album". I would have expected it to show the text in the review field associated with the selected album.

hit me on support@mrmc.tv if you can share that library with me from Plex, if I can get it here I can reproduce and fix

thanks!

Ok, I have given you access via that email address to my music section.

If you complete the sign in, then when browsing my library goto the Big Finish artist (these are all audiobooks). I have not finished adding review details to everything, but if you look at any of the ones called "Doctor Who - 3rd Doctor" you will see the review text giving the description.

Brilliant. Much appreciated.
Unfortunately I am not on Apple TV, only fire TV, so I will wait for the update with this fix.

Just updated to 3.0.9 and can now see the album review field being populated with the text as requested.

Many thanks for the very quick sorting of this.

Just a further request if not too difficult - can you make it a scrolling section? Some albums reviews contain much more text than fits on the screen. If scrolling the album review field is not possible, then maybe something on the menu to show the album review in it's own big text box overlay.
