Bugs / No duplicate if ID3-tag 'title' does not match
« on: May 30, 2012, 10:58:52 »

I found a strange problem with finding duplicates of mp3 files.
To verify that it is a bug I did the following:
  • take a normal mp3 file with ID3 tag data filled
  • copy that file
  • check with Similarity -> found duplicate
  • empty cache
  • edit ID3-tag field "title" (remove only one letter at the end)
  • check with Similarity -> found NO duplicate
It seems that the "title" tag must be 100% identical to find a duplicate even if I switch off the "TAG"-comparisation.
If in one file the "title" is completely empty - the duplicate is found.
The other tag-fields do not matter. It is only the "title" field.

In short: if "title" field is filled it has to be 100% identical, otherwise a duplicate is not found (even if the file is 100% content-identical).

This is a bit srange because normally the program even finds duplicates when one file is an MP3 and the other is a video (with the same audio-track).

I hope you can reproduce this and find a fix for it.
(I use version 1.7.1)
