Why is my music not sorted correctly After an Index?



BluOS sorts and updates your Music Library based on the ID3 Metadata Tags incorporated into the encoded music based on Album, Artist, Track and various other tags.

These tags cannot be altered in the BluOS software, but rely on ID3 Metadata tags pre-populated by either the CD ripping and encoding process or by prewritten tags provided in purchased downloaded music from reputable online vendors. 

ID3 Metadata tags however can easily be edited using a wide variety of computer packages available. In Windows, you can try products like JRiver or Media Monkey. For Mac users, iTunes is far and away the most popular ID3 metadata tag editing tool. iTunes however is unable to edit FLAC file tags. 

For other alternatives, we have seen customers have success with some freeware software.

For PC, MP3Tag has been seen as an excellent alternative for users who want more options over their metadata.

For macOS, TAG (by Feisty Dog) allows you to edit ID3 tags in FLAC files available to Mac users.

For Users who wish to edit .WAV files, MediaMonkey or Kid3 work as recommended. Other editors may not support .WAV Metadata editing.

After making any metadata changes, you should select Rebuild Index from the Settings menu rather than a simple Reindex Music as this will remove the old index and metadata on your Bluesound Players and allow for any corrections to be rewritten rather than simply updated.
