you are right!
But reading is just one side of the coin...understanding the written correctly is often another piece of cake ;-)

But I can see now what you mean Smile
Thank you for your excellent and steady work on moOde.

But I have another question:

I played around with some tags.
In moOde I can search for tags like "Composer", "Performer", "Release Date"  etc.

If I modify these tags on some files in foobar2000 and try a search on it in moOde, it seems that not all of them got found correctly.

For example:

I modify the tags of two files in foobar:

File A - Composer = "TEST"
File B - Performer = "TEST"

After an update of the playlist I search for "TEST" within the relevant search fields in moOde.
But only File A gets found, where the Composer-Tag is set to "TEST".
Performer doesn't get found.

The patterns in foobar are %COMPOSER% and %PERFORMER%.

What is the problem here?


What is the encoding and file format of the track? What does the "file" command report? 

What metadata are actually stored and how in the track file? What does a low-level utility like mediainfo say? 

Don't depend on a application like foobar2000 or mp3tag to do this diagnostic work. They are great tools but they hide the details from the user.

Do you need more information?

See my reponse in other thread:
OK Kent,
thank you and have a nice new year's eve!



I "quick-tested" 1759 files with mixed codecs.
I renamed the searchable tags (GENRE, DATE, COMPOSER, PERFORMER) all to "TEST" and did an advanced search within moOde:

Genre: all 1759 files were listed
Date: 1515 files found
Composer: all 1759 files were found too
Performer: just 671 files found

664 items are FLAC
1088 mp3
7 AAC files
