Is there a music player for Ubuntu that either supports multiple genres or has a plug-in to support them? Say I have a song with the genre "Metal/Instrumental" (the separator isn't really important). I would like it to show up in both the "Metal" and "Instrumental" genres.
Rhythmbox performs search by "all fields" by default. Which means that it will search every shown field (columns are customizable), this way if a song matches at least one of your search criteria, it will be shown in the results list.
Let's say: I have songs with the "Disco" and the "Italo-Disco" tags in the "Genre" field, as shown in the next screenshot:
When I run a search for "Italo", only these songs that matches that search criteria will be shown in the list as shown in the next screenshot:
But if I run a search for the "Disco" tag, the results will show both "Disco" and "Italo-Disco" results, as shown here:
Other search results for tags in different fields/columns will do the same, see this screenshot for the "Techno" tag in the "Genre Field".
For customizing your fields list simply go to Edit/Preferences in order to check which fields you wish to be shown in the list in the "General" Tab:
If your Rythmbox's search results won't result in what you expect, you may wish to uninstall and reinstall Rhythmbox. Please let us know if you succeed.
