I haven't had problems with my collection.
I have tried *almost* every combination of:
"Premium Music Library" vs "Basic Music Library"
In combination with:
For agents: "Plex Premium Music" first and checked, and "Local Media Assets" below it (checked and unchecked)
With the option to "use embedded tags" when I set up the library, both checked and unchecked.
For example, I just created a "Premium Library", and I *ONLY* pointed it towards my music files of MP3 purchases I made on Amazon (so quality, easy-to-match files, I'd think).
I moved Plex Premium Music to the top and made sure it was checked, for both Artist and Album, and I unchecked Local Media Assets and told it to ignore embedded tags.
Plex used the same album cover on basically all the music in that library.
I've also tried the exact opposite, where I've created a Basic library, made sure Local Media Assets was appearing first and checked, and checked the box to use "Embedded tags"... Windows Media Player scans this folder and perfectly matches these files. Plex? Not so much...
If anybody out there has any advise on what to try to improve Plex's music matching capabilities... I'd appreciate it.
