Tag and MP3

Post by Fuga » Mon Feb 12, 2007 12:23 am

I sure do hope I'm doing something wrong.

Have I missed it somewhere in these forums? Tag doesn't do MP3?

No, you haven't missed anything. Tag currently only supports key/value based metadata schemes like those used by FLAC and Ogg Vorbis. MP3 support could be added, but unfortunately it is low on the priority list. Play can edit MP3 tags, though, if you're looking for an adventure (if so, I recommend the svn version!!).

Works for me. Great! So, what are the chances of having Play guess title tag like Tag?

At some point it will be able to- it's just a matter of copying and pasting the code in there. Once I get playlists working I'll be able to focus on adding features like this one.

I'll be anxiously waiting. I want to totally get away from iTunes.

I rip with EAC. If I were using Max to rip, would the MP3s be tagged? (Can't wait until tomorrow to test.)

Yes, they will be tagged. The only iTunes tag Max doesn't currently support is Album Artist.

Well, let me hereby put in a request to roll MP3 tagging into Tag. Ripping for myself is fine with Max but in my sharing world pretty much only EAC will suffice. Hence my "need" for tagging in Tag.

Thanks for the work and future consideration.
