  1. Add support for ITUNESADVISORY tag in M4A files

    Currently, trying to add the ITUNESADVISORY tag to mark Explicit and Clean versions of a track gives an error saying the tag is not supported in ALAC files. MP3Tag does write the tag correctly though and it's recognised in iTunes.

      Metatogger uses the taglib library to read and write tags. And taglib doesn’t support the ITUNESADVISORY Apple specific tag.

      You will find in the following source code all MP4 tags supported by taglib (take a look at the ‘keyTranslation’ array):
      https://github.com/taglib/taglib/blob/master/taglib/mp4/mp4tag.cpp#L833

      If you think taglib should support this tag, feel free to open an issue here:

    • Option to choose lyris

      It would be possible for him to be able to check the lyrics of the songs and give the option to change the one wrong for the other. Is that I have some that are wrong and only gives the option to delete them all and put back the program. I love your program, thank you.

      • Add filter by 'count' of a group

        My collection is a mix of albums and singles (1-4 tracks). For an artist, I'd like to arrange the albums in a folder per album, but the singles in together in one folder. To achieve this, it would be helpful to identify 'albums' that have 4 or less tracks. I can group by album, which shows the count of tracks per group, so I'd like to be able to filter by the count.

        Great bit of software, thanks!

        • plugin that fetches earliest recording date per-track, ideal for greatest-hits albums

          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-recordingdate

          • Automatically reload modified files in external tag editor

            Hi guys, your program is awsome. Althoug I can't find list refreshing button anywhere. If I loaded a bunch of file and I edit it outside the program I can't refresh it to show the new information. Please add it, I use this a lot of time in other programs :)

            Thank you and have a great day

              • Provide a GUI based way to manage settings. Provide for more custimization of the application

                I use MP3Tag and Metatogger. MP3Tag is infinitely flexible and creating automation is MUCH easier. The application can be configured and customized to add what I need. No such customization is possible with Metatogger and its the only reason that I don't use it for all my tagging needs.

                    There is no official “involved people” (TIPL) or “musician credits list” (TMCL) in FLAC tag format (Vorbis Comment) as you have in MP3 ID3v2.

                    You can use “PERFORMER:” to add musician credits list (PERFORMER:Trumpet=Maalouf). But you will have no guarantee of support in your audio player…

                    Would be amazing if in some way we could add artist cover to work with Windows 10 Groove Music. But I have to admit that should be a Microsoft limitation.

                        • Autocomplete tags in song

                          Metatogger can search for lyrics and load it to tags, it's really great. But it can't autocomplete the others ones. Why? If it finds lyris by Title and Artist it could write Genre, Year, Cover, etc. Please, make it possible

                            Unfortunately, the service used to identify files by acoustic fingerprint only returns reliably the title and the artist name of each track. Indeed, Metatogger cannot know the disk from which the identified track is extracted (single, album, compilation, etc.), making it difficult to retrieve the title of the album, year of release, etc.

                          • I have a FullHD resolution and the letters so small :(

                            Make the interface more configurable.

                                There is no portable version of Metatogger because some important checks are performed on the system at install time, such as verifying software prerequisites, downloaded and installed if necessary (XAudio2, Visual C ++ Runtime, LocalDB,. NET Framework).

                                Furthermore, the configuration file is stored in the user’s home directory, and not in the folder from which the software is launched.

                                Using Metatogger in portable mode would not offer an optimal user experience.

                                    Establish an easy way to select the duplicated songs. For example if you have the same songs but different bit rate, automatically select one of them according to a given criteria. If the songs have the same bit rate, automatically select any of them.

                                      • Release a OSX version

                                        On OSX there isn't a software as good as Metatogger!
                                        Could you please release a OSX version of Metatogger?

                                        • Optimize acoustic fingerprint identification with files with long introduction

                                          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?
