I use this component for backup purposes only between two disks.
But i thing there is a problem when m-tags files already exists in folders because it seams that it can't overwrite ( although i have check it to do so ) the old files with the updated tags.
So i have to delete the old files and create new every time i want to make a backup.
Also when i have lyrics in a tag m-tags only writes a dot (.) . Is this normal.
Anyway thanks for this great plugin and i hope in future development.

I had no issues with m-tags this far though today I noticed it was somewhat broken. While it still displays tracks perfectly fine it only shows about a third of all indexed files when I have the filter on artists rather than year, album title or genre. Is there any way to resolve this issue without having to re-add every single !.tags file?

Never mind. Just had to remove the Artist tab and add it and it was back to normal.

Thanks @luigimercurio, m-TAGS seems to be exactly what I needed to make compilations with individual tagging and cover without the burden of having duplicate files.

But how do I export these virtual albums?

File Operations > Copy to... only copies the !.tags and !.tags.front.bin files. So I use Convert to create the new files with applied tagging. Apart from the occasional "Could not attach image/File in use" bug this works as expected and seems a good choice in case of FLAC to FLAC or FLAC to lossy. But I want to avoid transcoding from lossy origin files, so how would I do that?

How can I set up saving music files in a folder without using file Explorer? It's terribly inconvenient to scroll through all the subfolders until you get to the right one

More questions how to create a file not unix and Windows?How do I create my own tag? How do I add it to filters so that the database is indexed by m-tags?

I love this plugin, but I have found a bug related to how album art is displayed: In a generated m-tags file, the 'Properties > Artwork' panel will show attached album artwork for every song except the first song. As soon as I go to play the first song, the album art seemingly disappears. I have confirmed this behavior by adding a blank tag to the beginning of a .tags file, and the same behavior occurs. What is even even more bizarre is if I create a duplicate tag entry with the same '@' reference as the first song in the .tag file, it also fails to display the album art when played. I have illustrated a few examples below:

In this example, both 02.mp3 and 03.mp3 display the album art while playing, but 01.mp3 fails to display it.

Code: [Select]
[
   {
      "@" : "01.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "02.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "03.mp3",
   },
]

In this example, only 02.mp3 would display the album art.

Code: [Select]
[
   {
      "@" : "01.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "02.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "01.mp3",
   },
]

So far, the below example is the only solution I can find -- adding a blank tag to the beginning of the file. This allows all 3 songs to display properly.

Code: [Select]
[
   {
   },
   {
      "@" : "01.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "02.mp3",
   },
   {
      "@" : "03.mp3",
   },
]

I'm unsure if this is a quirk of a newer version of foobar, but trying the same setup on a fresh copy of foobar2000 yields the same result. Has anyone else observed this behavior, and is there some way to change it?

I'm using this great component for several things. One of them involves a folder with many media files in it. So I end up with a single !.tags file containing all relevant information. So far so good.

My question is: how do I doo when I want to add media files to that same folder? I wish there was a way to add these new media files to the already existing !.tags file, without having to delete it and rescan everything all over again. Any suggestions ?

I figured out the solution to my issue. This seems to be a bug in m-tags itself, as it will not query the album art for any file ending in a known file extension if it is the first track in the .tags file, or in a .tags files that contains only one track. My fix was to change the referenced file extension to the URL encoding reference format (e.g. test.mp3 becomes test.%6D%70%33). This has fixed album art appearing for all of my radio stream URLs that ended in a file format, mostly .ogg, .aac, and .mp3.

For anyone else lurking who has encountered this issue, I have pasted the URL encoded extensions below:

.aac = %61%61%63
.ogg = %6F%67%67
.mp3 = %6D%70%33

Good to know! As for my issue, @luigimercurio hasn't been active since 2018 :( Has anybody taken over on this project, or can somebody do it ?...
