Total tracks field in FLAC tags

Post by danjewett » Sun Jun 03, 2007 11:29 pm

I'm finding that if I set the 'total tracks' field in Tag, the value does not show up in Play and vice versa.

Tag seems to agree with Media Rage about the field, as 'total tracks' set with Media Rage shows up in Tag (and vice versa) but not in 'Play.'

Any ideas on what might be the cause?

Regards,
Dan J.

Ok, It looks like at some point I changed the default mapping of 'Tag' to match that of Media Rage.
YEAR=>YEAR
TOTAL TRACKS=>TOTALTRACKS

'Tag' defaults are:
YEAR=>DATE
TOTAL TRACKS=>TRACKTOTAL

So I guess I have to commit to using 'Tag' for my FLAC files (which isn't so bad :-))

The Vorbis I specification only recommends "TRACKNUMBER" for the track. There is no recommendation for the total number of tracks tag, but I chose to keep the prefix TRACK and thus TRACKTOTAL. There are other players/taggers out there that use TRACKTOTAL as well, but a standard from Xiph would be helpful for cases like these!
