Original Artist Tag For FLAC Files Inconsistency [#14714]

Post by Stigg » Sun Feb 04, 2018 1:29 am

I have noticed this for a long time, but have been very busy. I thought I would mention it now.

If I tag FLAC files with other taggers and music players, the "Original Artist" field is not displayed in MediaMonkey. This only occurs for FLAC files, and not MP3 files.

I had a look at the tagging, and other taggers and music players that I have used to tag with use "ORIGARTIST" for the "Original Artist" field, but MediaMonkey uses "ORIGINALARTIST" for the "Original Artist" field for FLAC files.

I don't know which one it right, but is it possible to make this field more compatible with other players and taggers?
MediaMonkey reads "ORIGARTIST" fine with MP3s, but not for FLAC.




PS: If I put this thread in the wrong section, please move it. :wink:

Hi,
I tested with AIMP and could not replicate, what tag apps you used.

Where do I find Original Artist in AIMP? I can't see it. :-?

Here are 2 tag editors that use "ORIGARTIST". Tag&Rename & MusicBee.

The thing I don't understand is why MediaMonkey uses "ORIGARTIST" for MP3 and "ORIGINALARTIST" for FLAC, yet other taggers that have an Original Artist field use "ORIGARTIST" for both and the Original Artist fields read fine interchangeably.

Hi,
added as http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=14714 and I'll investigate to see what is the best solution. Especially as FLAC metadata tagging is from 2003 and changing this ATM would make lots of regressions (as example I have around 30k FLAC files from my CD rips that can be influenced by change)

Hi Peke.

A simple solution would be to get MM to tag or read both options.
I think that solution has been used for other tags in the past.

By the way. Check M4A tags also. I think they might have the same problem. :o
