Title: Is it possible to automatically tag OPUS in CueTools?
Post by: Sham 69 on 2021-11-22 18:59:00
I tried changing the tags from TagLibSharp to APEv2 and ID3v2. The tags stay blank, and I've tried playing them through VLC and MusicBee. I don't get this issue with other formats like AAC or FLAC.

Notes:  
Tested using the official 2.1.8 and 2.1.9 from CUETools Download (http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download) and various builds from OPUS 1.3.1 (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=117526.0)
AFAICT CUETools is writing the tags. MediaInfo (https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo) Spoiler (click to show/hide)
and foobar2000 Spoiler (click to show/hide)
display the tags correctly (I don't use VLC or MusicBee).
However MP3Tag does not show tags.
So I ran a couple more tests, this time using the OPUS 1.3.1 encoder from foobar2000 (so the same encoder was used for each test).

ran opusinfo.exe on a file created by CUETools Spoiler (click to show/hide)

ran opusinfo.exe on a file created by foobar2000 (same source file) Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Dropped both files into MP3Tag
File created by CUETools does not show tags
File created by foobar2000 does show the tags

I then tried checking a file before CUETools could add the tags Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Conclusion: CUETools is not properly adding the tags to the headers. This could result in some players/programs not being able to read the tags as written.
This issue should be added to https://github.com/gchudov/cuetools.net/issues

Bonus find: Spoiler (click to show/hide)
There also appears to be an issue with the way CUETools handles METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE when adding full path to image file

A build of CUETools with updated taglib-sharp, which includes required fixes for correctly writing tags to opus files, is available here for testing:
