It would be very fine to see more tag-information at the now-hearing-screen. Many of my songs have for example tags for "comment" and "conductor" and it would be very fine to see this information whan playing the songs.
It's maybe possible to have a section in the settings, where it's possible to choose, which infos are possible to see?

It's already the case, and to be honest I think most the info showable is pretty useless (who needs to know at all times that the song their are listening to is 44kHz seriously), and I only added it because it was submitted as a pull request.

I think that more information would bloat the now playing view too much, and a window dedicated for showing the current song detailed info would be much better, as suggested in another bug.

I do ... But you're right , not a common requirement ... Just for audio geeks ...

+1 for the dedicated window with additionnal informations and keep the now playing screen as simple as possible

Me too... :-)
It's not the thing to see the information all the time, but for me its important to have the possibility to see the info. Particularly the "comment"-tag would be interesting to see.
Otherwise there is no possibility to see what is written there.

And for the "conductor" - even better would be the possibility to search for it in the library. But i know that also kind of special... :-)

I don't know what "conductor" is :/

"conductor" is freestyle-tagging ;)

Oh sorry - did not know that.
It's a tagging field in Mp3tag, which i use for tagging.
There are really lots of field. Because of that i had the idea to have a list in the settings to choose, which tags to display.

a list in the settings to choose

Meh, you'd need a format string or something else, but I don't like adding settings.

I hope that your custom field is scanned by MPD and sent to me. I don't remember how custom fields are handled

@kingosticks

I thought custom fields (outside of the list below) are ignored by MPD. I don't think it remaps anything.

    [TAG_ARTIST] = "Artist",
    [TAG_ARTIST_SORT] = "ArtistSort",
    [TAG_ALBUM] = "Album",
    [TAG_ALBUM_ARTIST] = "AlbumArtist",
    [TAG_ALBUM_ARTIST_SORT] = "AlbumArtistSort",
    [TAG_TITLE] = "Title",
    [TAG_TRACK] = "Track",
    [TAG_NAME] = "Name",
    [TAG_GENRE] = "Genre",
    [TAG_DATE] = "Date",
    [TAG_COMPOSER] = "Composer",
    [TAG_PERFORMER] = "Performer",
    [TAG_COMMENT] = "Comment",
    [TAG_DISC] = "Disc",

    /* MusicBrainz tags from http://musicbrainz.org/doc/MusicBrainzTag */
    [TAG_MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID] = "MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID",
    [TAG_MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID] = "MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID",
    [TAG_MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMARTISTID] = "MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMARTISTID",
    [TAG_MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID] = "MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID",
@keithsimister

Id like to see the track number and the total number of songs in the playlist on the "Now Playing" view too eg. Song: 7 of 15

Why not, lot of stuff to fit on these small screens though :/
