Show comment field in the details view

Feature description:

I’d like for the comment audio field to be shown next to the other fields in the song details menu.

Problem solved:

I use the comment field for urls of songs / videos, and this would let me open them trough the app. Ideally, you would be able to click on these if they are links to open them in the default internet browser.

Brought benefits:

Same as above. One of the most popular ways to use the comment field is for this exact case. Also, pretty much every other app / server shows the comment field.

Other application solutions:

Not sure about mobile apps, but desktop ones usually just add an option to add the comment field to a table + also show it when you click get more info / details button.

It is already displayed for the providers who support them.

I’m using Navidrome and it supports it. I’m guessing that it’s a Navidrome native feature then? Are there any plans to support this in OpenSubsonic?

Yes it’s planned, but it’s a slow project for now hard to move so much people fast.

One more question. How hard would it be to implement link recognition as part of the comment tag?
I’d like to be able to open links directly from that menu.

You can copy paste link support on Android is broken on many devices.

Yes, but copy pasting is much much slower. :smiling_face_with_tear:
You need to first open the menu itself which is a few clicks, then select the link, the exit the app, then open the browser and then paste.

Yes it’s limitation of Compose for now that the menu is limited :frowning: Once they fix it, it should have the open in browser too there.
