Media Library Issues with files without Album Tags (Android Version)

Hello,

I do not use album tag on singles. In earlier times (IIRC at least til 1.2.6), the Media Library showed all Tracks without Album tag in the Album Artist/Album category under the Artists names album grid in a separate 'unknown album' folder.  At least since 1.2.18, this is not the case anymore, so you won't find the tracks there. You may use the search function to find the tracks in the media library, however when opening these tracks or putting them to a playlist, no album cover is shown on playback or in the playlist or in the media library. Files can only be found in the media library via search or track view.

I also had the case that some other artist and some other album cover was shown on playback and in the playlist.
Fun fact: if a file without album tag is the only one with image for an artist, the album cover of this file is used in theMedia Library Album Artist/Album artist view anyway even if the file is not shown. (embedded image, no separate image file)

However, when browsing files without album tag manually,  album covers are shown in the folder view as well as on playback as well as in the playlist. (However, as you can see, in tthis case the 'feat.' note is not processed like on media library call)

To make sure nothing in app upgrade process mismatched the behaviour, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app manually. Yes, we are taking about the same file on the same location.

I hope these issues will be fixed in future versions. Last tested with android-Version 1.3.1 arm64.

Are your music files stored on a remote location or locally on the phone?

Files are stored local (on SD Card inserted in the phone).
