The way minidlna / ReadyDLNA presents compilations ("Various Artists") albums in the metadata is not properly understood by all clients. Important examples are BubbleUPnP and the Raumfeld Connector 2.

Current behavior (only relevant tags):

<dc:title>Berimbau</dc:title>
<upnp:album>Diggin' Deeper 2: The Roots of Acid Jazz</upnp:album>
<dc:creator>Os Ipanemas</dc:creator>
<upnp:artist>Various Artists</upnp:artist>

This would work better (TwonkyMedia result for the same file):

<dc:title>Berimbau</dc:title>
<upnp:album>Diggin' Deeper 2: The Roots of Acid Jazz</upnp:album>
<dc:creator>Os Ipanemas</dc:creator>
<upnp:artist>Os Ipanemas</upnp:artist>
<upnp:albumArtist>Various Artists</upnp:albumArtist>

    "milestone v1.0" is misleading, this was found with minidlna 1.1.3.
