Finding Tags in "comments" and own Tag-Header ?

Hi there

With the normal search function I cant find songs with Tags in "comments", "content group" and "mood"
How can I find songs by tags in them ?

I extensively used foobar on desktop and with own tags in comments and my own defined custom "Tag-Group-Header"  (Facets>Columns in "content group" "mood" with own names as titles for the UI-Columns-Head).
Would be nice to use that tags to find my songs also on Android ;-)

Thanks for helping

I don’t believe any of these or other custom tags are indexed in the Android libraries, nor by any of the other Android media player apps that I am aware of.

The only workaround I can think of would be to copy all tags in all columns in all my music to f.e. artist  ...
a lot of work and bad solution...
Perhaps someone have better solutions ?

The standard tags in “most” players are Artist, Album, Title, Genre, and in some cases also Composer and AlbumArtist. If you don’t use one of these in most or all of your current tag fields, maybe that is a solution. Otherwise these tags won’t be able to be used for browsing on your Android device. At least not with the current APIs and apps that I am aware of.
