Meta Data TAGs

Post by radio42 » 09 Apr 2012 12:02

ProppFrexx ONAIR supports reading/writing of meta data from/to any supported audio file format. These meta data will be written to the TAG meta data of the audio file. This is also supported of WAVE and BWF (.wav) files, as here the RIFF LIST INFO chunk is used to store the meta data.

These TAG attributes have been carefully selected, as they reflect the defacto standard as supported by most tag editing applications, and/or the ProppFrexx Meta Data Editor.

Note, that if you don't want to write TAG data directly to the audio file, ProppFrexx also supports reading/writing meta data to a separate .pfmd files along with the audio file or even from a meta data database table.

Beside the above mentioned TAGs ProppFrexx supports reading any other TAGs as well (but these are read-only).

*Rating:
ProppFrexx expects, that the rating value is numeric and scales from 0 to 100 (0=Unknown, 1-20=Poor, 21-40=Average, 41-60=Good, 61-80=VeryGood, 81-100=Excelent)!
This except for the ID3v2 POPM frame, which scales from 0 to 255 and is automatically transformed internally to a 0-100 value.

I am not sure what exactly you did, but ProppFrexx for sure writes all TAG data correctly.
Can you please explain in a bit more details what exactly you did and what exactly is not written to the audio files TAG data?!
I am also not sure what 'Audioenhance DPS' has got to do with this?!

Hi, It's a really good question, I don't know. The software was the Audioenhence DPS 2012+ demo and i enabled the writing header option (song data info). It made some error, example: Soul Revenger - Corrida in Audioenhance (after load in his Library) was in TAG: Oul Revenger - Orrida. After i put in ProppFrexx i writted in TAG the correct information (Soul Revenger - Corrida), disappeared correctly, but after when i saved, and restarted all data lost. In Native Tag all time, everytime Audioenhance's tagged header was for example "sectone". Need i uninstall Audioenhance maybe? I deleted all Audioenhance saved library, playlist file, .ton files, but the problem samely back...

Are your audio files may be 'write protected'?
Please check its attributes within the Windows Explorer...

Hi, the files not was protected, but audioenhance's unintall resolved this problem. Traces was removed with Registrar Registry Manager incl. VB Settings. Now I can rewrite ID tags with Proppfrexx, Thanky Your answers again!
