Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

From what I understand from the ogg people, there is no limit. This is just a bug in MM.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I've received some messages from support stating that the bug that caused this corruption is fixed in the latest beta, which does not appear to be downloadable yet. I've responded several times asking if there is any chance (1) MM could help uncorrupt the files that were corrupted by MM and/or (2) M...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Oops, I didn't read down far enough. In any case, I'm still looking for some help to try to uncorrupt these files.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Fair enough... Although the standard was undefined when this corruption happened, and apparently isn't implemented in MM yet.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Album art in ogg metadata is undefined, I believe. There is no standard way. It is definitely better to just have a folder.jpg file for now. But the point here is Mediamonkey shouldn't ever even have the possibility of writing a media file to make it unusable. And if it has corrupted files, it would...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I don't think that's quite how ogg vorbis works. There is other metadata after the embedded JPG (e.g. PLAYCOUNT) and then some of the binary data matches that of the original (untagged file). Later on, there are some other differences that I haven't been able to figure out. I understand from the ogg...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I think you're right, I will test it, but obviously MM should never ruin a file even if it is provided with a bad input like this. I typically don't use large album art -- in this case, the album art files were automatically fetched by a script and I didn't manually check anything. My main priority ...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I just caused new corruption on some test files with MM 3.1.0.1256, using the Album Art Tagger. Steps to reproduce: (1) Create folder with valid ogg files and a large folder.jpg file (in my test case, 480kB) (2) Run Album Art Tagger script (3) Select "embed artwork (copy from mask to tag)" (4) Selec...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I think the triggering condition is trying to encode album art into the ogg file itself, in particular by Batch Album Art plugin. All of the files I've noticed with this problem have "COVERARTDESCRIPTION=Added by Trixmoto's BatchArtFinder script" in the metadata. I haven't tried it again recently bu...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

No luck clearing tags and then synchronizing. In fact, any modification to tags through MM seems to have no effect on the file.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Most recent release -- 3.1.0.1256.

But the corruption occurred in an earlier version quite a while ago.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Nothing will play them -- WinAmp, MediaMonkey, etc.. But I'm pretty sure the only corruption is in the header, caused by the Batch Album Art tagger.

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

Unfortunately, audacity can't recognize these oggs either, and mp3trim seems to be limited to mpeg type files. I'm guessing all of these various ogg programs rely on the same source library from Xiph for all things ogg/vorbis, and so if the metadata is not openable in one package, it is not openable...

Re: ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

In Winamp, the metadata area is entirely grayed out. I can't edit it there either. I tried removing the album art, but I think it just deleted the folder album art file -- it did not modify the ogg itself. (The album art is duplicated in the metadata and as a file in the folder).

ogg vorbis tags corrupted by embedded album art, unplayable

I used the Batch Art Finder script to tag several albums with album art. Unfortunately, many of the ogg vorbis files tagged now have corrupt metadata and I have not been able to find any tool to fix them. The tags can no longer be modified in MM and in most instances the files themselves no longer p...
