Hi

I like to use multiple genre tags on my music files which I've set Jaikoz to pick up from Styles on Discogs. This all works as expected.

I'm retagging some old music which I think I did on Mp3Tag. I had the genre separator on mp3tag as \\. Where it worked the genres map to a tag each and display correctly in Jaikoz

i.e. mp3tag

GENRE: Indie Rock
GENRE: Alternative Rock
GENRE: Pop Rock

Jaikoz

Genre: [3]Pop Rock
*The others being underneath.

However some of my files just pull through as a single string:
GENRE: Indie Rock\\Alternative Rock\\Pop Rock

I seem to remember I used to be able to search and replace on Jaikoz using the unicode \u0000 to split entries, but it won't accept that as an entry anymore. Is this by design or a bug?

v9.10 Build 1160

Thanks

Either a bug or user error, I havent changed anything within the Search and Replace code

It used to change the /u0000 to a square on tab, but now it just deletes the value and leaves nothing in it's place.

I'm also seeing behaviour where in mp3tag a track has a tag of:

TRACK - 01/02

However in Jaikoz the track is blank and only the total tracks is displayed.

I tried to attach a couple of screenshots explaining what I mean, but the forum keeps timing out.

For reference this is happening on FLAC tags

Ah, things have changed a bit with the main editing window, alot of it was to do with the complexities of supporting the performer field which comprises two values when using ID3. I cant quite remember why the null handling has changed but I think that is the cause of this issue.

For FLAC Trackno and TrackTotal shoud be stored in two different fields TRACKNUMBER and TRACKTOTAL, if you open the file in a hexeditor you should be able to see what is stored. Sorry the forum doesnt working properly for uploading images but yo can just email support at jthink dot net

In that case it's probably mp3tag being non-compliant. I'll send the screenshots via email in any case.

Cheers

So the Flac file has TRACKNUMBER set 01/02, Jaikoz expects TRACKNUMBER to only store the trackno, and TRACKTOTAL to store the tracktotal, I believe this is the accepted standard although I suppose i could at least extract the tracknumber in this case.

I think you mean Jaikoz dispalys the DISCTOTAL not the TRACKTOTAL

Yes, sorry.

I presume that the "/" between 01/02 for instance is causing Jaikoz to reject the track no?

It's fine I'll just rerun mp3tag to format the track no back to two digits. Mp3tag it's clearly not splitting the track no / track total to separate tags when using it's numbering wizard.

Yes, I think so.
