Singletons and Kodi


Hi, I love beets, but I am having trouble using it with Kodi as a player for singletons.
Kodi reads the album tags from the singletons in the non-album folder and creates a new album for each of these. So, you end up with an annoyingly large number of “single-song” albums in Kodi.
Kodi suggests to remove album tags from these singles / singletons and then treats them as singles (as discussed here).
I have tried manually removing albums tag by beet modify title:"foo" album="" for a couple of singletons. So far, I haven’t really run into any issues, but I don’t really feel comfortable with this yet. Are there problems to be expected down the road? Ideas?





That seems reasonable! You can even do this in one fell swoop with something like:

beet modify singleton:true album=


Excellent! I wasn’t aware of the singleton:true option. Thanks!
