UPnP defines certain tags to pass along metadata of the media (like title, artist, year, etc.), however some media provides more metadata and exceeds the scope of UPnP.
For this information, mediatomb offers the possibility to configure library-options naming auxiliary data which should be extracted during the import-process in addition to the standard-metadata.
These library-options currently only support libebexif and libextractor. I suggest to add a library which addresses id3-tags, too (namely taglib), because it can be helpful to have this data for finetuning the server-layout.
Example: If you have a sampler (album with many different artists) it makes sense to differentiate between an ALBUM_ARTIST and the artist of the single track. Or with classical music, where there is a COMPOSER (Mozart) and the ARTIST (Wiener Philharmoniker).
