Make it possible to download automatically the cover art of all the albums in the list.
Great additional features to this would be :
- the possibility of chosing the minimum definition of the cover
- a pop up window to chose the right cover when there is a dispute
between cover arts
- the possibility to chose different databases : "discogs, last.fm, rateyourmusic, amazon, etc...)30 votes
Hi, do you also prepare a 64bit version?
PS: any possibility to rename files with simply ARTIST - Song.mp3 (like, for example, with Tag&Rename) ?
Can you adda the shell integration with the system? (ie when you right click a file Meatogger option to search for the file name)
Thank you! Great job, thinking about a donation!22 votes
A 64 bits version of Metatogger is not planned. Why do you want a 64 bits version? Do you have any memory issue?
When embedding a cover, enter the max width/height options of the jpg. If the image is larger than that dimension, size it down. If the image is smaller then leave it alone14 votes
I tried mettatoger, is a promising program, but intrface is annoying.
I would like to perform operations on selected files without the need to check.
Many times I changed the tags in the wrong files, because I forgot to do a "check and unecheck others" (maybe as an option)
Would do well to find the album, year and genree of the selected song.12 votes
I truly believe that this is the BEST tag editor except that it is missing two features that have kept me from using it full time. Metatogger needs an easy way to import tags from a text file. I use MP3Tag because it has that feature and it is a real time saver. It would also be nice if you supported the tagging of AAC files as well...
I'm testing a lot of music taggers in Windows and one thing they all lack is to add the original date of a recording.
When playing a greatest hits album of the 80s which was put on the market in 2005 you have a problem because suddenly all these 80s song have a date of 2005. see https://community.metabrainz.org/t/how-to-get-picard-writing-the-original-release-date-year-of-a-recording/355388
Luckily, I found a tagger (beets) that searches for the original date, but it is a command line driven approach.
I hope Metatogger can implement what they cooked togheter.
Their solution is found on https://github.com/tweitzel/beets-recordingdate9 votes

Metatogger warns user if he loads files with more than one embedded cover. Is that OK for you?
Metatogger is a WPF application. WPF is not available under Linux.
I use Windows 7 and that program is a little slow, so I propose to speed it up....
BUT THIS PROGRAM IS GREAT!!!!!6 votes
Could you describe what part of the sofware you find slow? cold start? gui interaction? file loading/saving time (with what kind of audio format: MP3, FLAC, etc) ? Thanks.
On OSX there isn't a software as good as Metatogger!
Could you please release a OSX version of Metatogger?6 votes

When asking to play something, it would be very intersesting to have the possibility to select a UPnP device if it exist on the network.6 votes
introduce an optional move option once the file has been processed to another location to distinguish the processed from the unprocessed. Also,organising of files while moving might also help.5 votes
Gracenote has more Karaoke listings.4 votes
Gracenote database cannot be used freely.
I have noticed that music files with long introduction (starting) have less chances to be identified... is there a way to make the search based on a longer part of the music file?4 votes
Metatogger uses the Acoustid service for acoustic fingerprinting. Only the first 120 seconds of the song is used for computing the fingerprint.
You can read more info about the Acoustid server at:

Is it possible to make it use the default system theme? That is, Office 2013 on Win8+ and good old Aero on Vista+ ?
Thanks a lot for fixing one major annoyance last time with Metatogger being unresizable on netbooks. You also did very well on speed optimization for scrolling in filelists...
However, is it possible to use native system theme rather than (ugly in my opinion) Office 2013 look and feel? The horrible Office interface is one of the main reasons I won't put office 2013 on one of my boxes, since it's such a counterintuitive eyesore...
Maybe a check-box to switch between native (XP/Aero/Win8+) and custom (Office 2013) could do it...
Thanks in advance.4 votes
Metatogger 5.8 uses a more colored GUI. Is that OK for you?
