Inconsistent mp3 Tagging


Recommended Posts

PJ would tag artist/album/year/track/title/genre for one song, then the next song only artist/album would be tagged. I don't touch any settings in between. I've also never gotten album cover tagging to work.

I'm using PJ version beta 7.4.0. (Is there a stable version available for download?) I don't know what I'm doing wrong, and I've read through pages and pages in this forum. Can someone please help me?

could you guys describe better exactly what happens?

is it the fist song that is tagged with everything? or just a random one?

how many songs have you downloaded by now? how do you tell which ones are tagged and which are not (logs? file properties?)

and so on...

Thanks.

Just random songs here. I don't know, but if the info worked, it'd be a lot more :P. File properties :).

There doesn't seem to be a pattern to the order of songs getting tagged. I've had all of this happen:

correct, wrong, wrong, wrong, correct, correct, wrong

wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, correct, wrong, etc etc

correct, wrong, correct, wrong wrong wrong,

There's really no pattern as far as I can tell......ALTHOUGH, I am noticing that the SAME songs seem to get tagged correctly each time when the songs are replayed.

I can usually tell when the songs are being tagged with everything and when it is tagged with only artist/title info because the latter doesn't create an album subdirectory and I can see the file path on PJ when the mp3 is grabbed. That's also why I say the same songs seem to be tagged correctly each time because I've downloaded about 250ish songs so far and there's only been a couple of incidences (3-4) where I end up with two copies of the same song in the artist directory (one in the parent directory, and one in the album subdirectory).

I don't know if any of this helps......but thanks for working on this!

--------edit----------

...I'm actually a bit curious.....earlier in this thread I see people jumping with joy because everything was fully functioning--album info, art, and all.....what happened to the earlier versions that "worked?"

What's the best version to download right now? CF5? or the one on the noob site?

I decided to give CF5 a go, and this is what happened:

In this order:

13 songs with unknown album/tagging

1 correctly tagged with album and track info

3 songs unknown album/tagging

switched to Quick Mix station

--> stopped ripping mp3s entirely

--> I got this as an error message, "Same MD5 as last time (stopping!)," so I turned off mp3md5 in default properties, and this error message started showing up instead:

"MP3 mismatch recorded:

f584416dc9298441f775a62a42cb5582"

Since I use Quick Mix very often and having properly tagged albums is more important to me than having station information and playlists, I have reverted back to the "noob" version of PJ. I love the station playlist feature, but CF5 just seemed to be tagging a lot fewer songs than the original version.

I'm currently running Quick Mix on cruise control so I'll update in a bit to report the proprortion of songs correctly tagged.

------------------edit------------

Just noticed that CF6 is out now so I'll give that a try instead.

I'm sad to say that CF6 won't solve your problems. (except for tagging "quickmix" as the station name, instead of nothing).

I'll try to see what I can do to improve your situation.

I'm writing a comprehensive guide to all the md5 and tagging issue - I hope it will explain things well.

watch for them in the main thread - in case I forget to post them here.
