Auto-tag from filename *or* external file?

I've seen forum posts going back as much as 10-15 years requesting a way to import tag info from an external text file -- but unless I've missed it, I have yet to see an 'out of the box' add-on for this. One reason is that it would be fairly complex to write an add-on flexible enough to parse the al...

Re: Discogs Tagger 5.77 (Updated: 2020-10-01)

@crap_inhuman, Thanks for the quick reply. I definitely switched to MusicBrainz mode before trying an MBID search in the top bar, but the album wasn't found. I don't know why I didn't see the result you got with a manual search, because I tried so many different approaches before posting. Interestin...

Override values from Discogs or MusicBrainz?

Hi - I love your Tagger - it's the feature I use by far the most often in maintaining my library. Apologies if this has been requested before, but the old (and dearly missed!) 'auto-tag from Amazon' feature let you override or make corrections to the proposed new values by simply typing directly int...

Album exists in MusicBrainz but not found by Tagger

Subject pretty much says it all. I have an album called "Bach Organ Works: Preludes and Fugues", with artist name of James Kibbie. It exists in MusicBrainz, but I can't make it appear in Discogs Tagger 5.77. I tried every way to search that I could think of, including entering the album's MBID direc...

Re: Lyricator v1.4.4 (2019-06-23)

Hope I'm not covering old ground here, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting Lyricator to work consistently. I'm running the latest version of MM4 (4.1.25.1886) on Windows 10, although the problem also affected earlier versions. The Lyricator installation goes fine, and I'm using the current versi...

Re: 4.1.25.1885b - Auto-tag issues and duplicate engine

I'm guessing you haven't tried tagging from Amazon for awhile? Unfortunately, this isn't a MM issue: Amazon changed its rules and no longer allows API access to its music metadata from any third-party products like MM. So rather than simply show an error message from Amazon, MM now displays that "Au...

Re: Auto-lyrics stopped working?

Thanks, that did the trick! Awhile back, I installed the 'Lyrics and Comments Viewer' add-on and positioned it directly above the Art & Details window to give me a larger dedicated display of both the Lyrics and Comments fields. (I use Comments for album/artist info, and it coincidentally seems to b...

Auto-lyrics stopped working?

Using the latest beta build (and likely in several earlier builds as well?), MM no longer automatically adds lyrics into the tag when a track is selected. Reviewing my MM settings, I see nothing out of place - plus, it's always worked fine in the past. (A related "just curious" question: What source...

Re: Albums disappear during retagging [#8966]

This has been happening in every 4.x version for as far back as I can remember. And yes, I do tagging work in the Location node most of the time. Thanks!

Re: Albums disappear during retagging [#8966]

I hate to reopen an ancient thread, but I found this one in a search just prior to submitting the same bug: Any changes during retagging that would affect the media tree list itself often cause the album to totally disappear from the displayed list, under either the original or new name. For me, thi...

Re: Auto-label error

Please pardon the possibly dumb question, but the explanation linked above doesn't say whether this is a permanent situation or only temporary. Can someone provide a little more detail about what changed to break Amazon tagging? Personally, I'm really unhappy to lose Amazon tagging after relying on ...

Re: Assign metadata from existing track to different MP3 fil

@Lowlander, thank you, thank you! The metadata copy/paste function was exactly what needed. I was able to replace 500 MP3 files belonging to 30 albums in a matter of minutes. MM rules!

Assign metadata from existing track to different MP3 file?

I have about 30 classical albums in my MM library linked to low-bandwidth MP3 files (e.g., 128kb). These albums have a total of 503 tracks, and have very detailed metadata including composers, conductors, orchestras, and album art. Most of this metadata required a lot of time and effort to manually ...

Minor UI issue with toolbar menus

Admittedly minor, but still frustrating: In the toolbar menu (not the very top one with 'File', etc. but the one directly beneath it), there are entries for 'Play Now', 'Send to', and 'Tools'. For some reason, these all have the tiny down-arrow on the right side of the menu item. Clicking the menu i...
