VLC won't show the artist info of any of my mp3 files. But down in the corner it shows the Album Art. What flags should I enable, or packages should I install to make it where it wiss show the artist info?

i bet its fix is.....

(as root)
Code:

echo "media-video/vlc fontconfig" >> /etc/portage/package.use && emerge vlc


i was missing subtitles, and volume with out fontconfig.... i bet your problem is also caused from no fontconfig use being set.

if that doesnt do it, ctl + L = playlist mode.

I was already in playlist mode. Fontconfig is set in make.conf so I don't think that's it.

Edit: It's installed. Same result. No artist info. And now that you mention subtitles, they won't work either.

vlc id3 tag information is what you want changed... im looking, because i only get track also. upstream is useless........

ok, top right of vlc is a search box... to the left of it is a "change view" and that will give artist info.

http://imageshack.com/a/img854/1174/6wj6.jpg <--- is what it did to me.... it was originally just track name, then in this view its track name, under that its artist, album, track number. anyways if you find a vlc id3 format thread to fix it in text only mode id like to know.

I found the answer. Enabling the taglib USE flag makes id3 tag info show up in VLC.
