Undo Analyze Volume plugin - make undo permanent?

Post by Pathduck » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:56 am

Hi,
for years I've been using the very good 'Undo Analyze Volume' plugin/script for new files. It does exactly what it's supposed to - however it only changes the data in the library, not the files themselves.

If for instance I copy the files to another drive or outside the library, onto the phone etc, the volume tag is still present. I find it a bit annoying and want to find a way to remove the tags completely.

I've even had a look at the (relatively simple) VB code to try to figure out a way to make it permanent but had no luck so far... :oops:

It actually does

Code: Select all

Sng.UpdateDB
and

Code: Select all

Sng.WriteTags
but doesn't actually write the tags, from what I can see, the file dates are not modified and the tags are still present.

Any suggestions - alternate scripts, plugins or code changes needed?

Are you sure that you have full access to files, also you should add https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ssMessages and you should try https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... :UpdateAll as preffered in addition to see if Update Tags on edit is enabled in MMW options.

Thanks Peke,
so what you are saying is, the script using UpdateDB and WriteTags (or alternately UpdateAll), should indeed update the tags?

Because I am certain I have write access to the files. Also looking at the file timestamps, they are actually updated, contrary to what I said in the first post. However the tags do not seem to be removed, like I say if I copy the files outside the library and examine them in the My Computer view of MM, they are still there :o

Example:

But it's really strange - if examining the tracks in Foobar, looking at the properties, I can't find the Replaygain property at all. But looking at the same folder (outside the library) in MM, the track volumes are there.

Example, same files as above, track 06:

Maybe there's just something really basic about how Replaygain works I misunderstand?

Or is something wrong with the script?

Oh and here are my settings in MM which should be relevant:
