I have a Node 2i. I have two network shares on a windows 10 computer. I have both network shares connected on Bluos app on my iPhone.
1st Share is an iTunes Library - these were files ripped from CDs. I can see artists, albums, and songs from this share in Bluos Library on iPhone. Through "Folders" can see this network share and access the directory structure (Artist/Album/Song) and play songs.
2nd Share is "MyMusic\"artist"\"album"\"song" directory structure. The songs in this directory tree are .wav files generated on Protools. These files currently have no metadata. Through "Folders" can see this network share and access the directory structure (Artist/Album/Song) and play songs. The songs all come up in the Library under Artists as "Unknown Artist" (all songs in same "Unknown Album"), under Albums as "Unknown Album" (all songs by same "Unknown Artist"), or songs (showing the "file name" in the directory which has for example .wav at end). I assume this is consistent with there being no metadata.
It tried editing one song file to add metadata for "Title", "Album", and "Artist" in this network share (using mp3Tag) which is what seems iTunes library song files have. Subsequently, in Bluos, I did Settings > Music Library > Reindex music collection. During reindexing seems it did two shares separately - first one said one song, the other had '1000" songs. However, song still shows up as "Unknown Artist", "Unknown Album" and the song name shows the file name (includes .wav) and not the Title metadata (which I deleted .wav from).
Does re-indexing not refresh the "database" with current metadata? Is there some way to get it to put the song under the "Artist/Album/Song" I have in the file structure (or now in the metadata)? Would it help if I added the metadata to songs before I put them in the structure?
