Using the Style and other custom tags

Post by r0k » Fri Mar 02, 2012 6:26 am

Hi. As i was ripping some CDs with DBPowerAMP i noticed it was writing a "Style" tag in addition to the genre tag. This tag can be really useful to create sub-genres. However i was unable to access it in MediaMonkey. It doesn't appear in the properties pane and i can't find a way to add it as a tree criteria (even with magic tree). I don't actually know if MM even reads this tag.
BTW DBPowerAMP also writes some usefull tags such as "Source" that allows me to check which songs were ripped from a CD for example.

Is there a way to access those tags in MM, with or without a plugin, or could this feature be added?

foobar2000 does read those tags. Style appears as <style> (i think it indicates a custom tag) so this is definitely possible. It's even possible to sort songs using this style tag in foobar2000. I don't want to troll here, just to indicate that those custom tags are not something obscure that can only be read by the application that wrote them.

Now i know i can add those as custom tags in MM but it would be much more convenient to be able to read the tags that are already in the song.

Oh, that's for ogg files BTW.

No, only tags natively supported by MediaMonkey can be used.
