Or do as I do and ignore metadata altogether and simply browse by directory/folder. The Volumio app allows this, I think.

Sometimes you need to know who wrote the sleeve notes, and took the photograph on the album sleeve.

Though personally I am more interested in listening to the music.

John is it going to be possible to load something like iTunes onto the CM3 and use off board storage to run without a PC.

It seem to be possible to run a itunes server on a RPI https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...ic.php?t=49928

But this does not mean it is a good idea and you would most likely have to install it yourself if that is possible.

Why not use Volumio to manage your music if you don't want to use a PC as your server?
