A place for me to post my problems and fixes for all of the technology I use, along with tech news, and anything else in the world of technology and communications that interests me.
If you’ve copied music files to your Android device, you may have noticed that Google Music has an affinity for splitting songs up into separate albums, with the same album name and even the same album art.
The reason it does this is because the song metadata does not match for all of the songs. That means the information stored in the file, such as the artist, album name, or genre, differs in some way across the rest of the files.
The problem is that by the looks of it, there is nothing wrong with the metadata. The album names match up, and obviously the artist names do. This is where the program Ex Falso comes in.
This is, in my opinion, a pretty serious bug in both Google Music and Google Play Music. I don’t want to have to check for and do this for EVERY album I want to copy to my device. Hopefully Google will fix it, but they seem to be pretty slow on the uptake about this kind of thing.
