Wishlist / Re: ID3v2.4
« on: May 01, 2014, 16:25:52 »
This is my opinion,

Right now I am cleaning up and getting my music library in perfect shape. I have downloaded open ID3 library from Github and modified to match what I need. I have done extended research on 2.3 vs 2.4 just because I am detail freak, I would like to capture every bit of the detail. That's why I have compiled my own version of ID3 library to save those tags.

After doing more than 4 months of research two years ago, I have settled on 2.3. I know it is missing some very good information but I have not found player or cloud player that will take advantage of those tag. They all are settled on 2.3 and even in that they do not support all of the specification. I think, in part it is fault of ID3v2 specification because it is not "standardized" by big "boss" and there are not any big backers either. Just take iPod and iTunes.

So I would say stick with 2.3 and more player will support your tags than 2.4.

Though, for a while I will be adding few (about 8-9) custom frames in 2.3 to store my detailed information.

It just my opinion.

But it would not hurt to allow user to select which version they want to keep. So I would say support both 2.3 & 2.4 and then let user decide what they want to use.

Any progress on this?

Wishlist / Grouping Option
« on: March 06, 2012, 19:36:13 »
I read the explanation of how grouping works but even after that

Can we get an Option to select how we want to group? My option would be minimize number of groups and not repeating same file in more than one group.

Allow us to decide if we want to minimize the number of groups or more accurate presentation of the match result.

Wishlist / Moving marked files
« on: March 06, 2012, 19:33:25 »
We have option to move marked files but can we have option to move files and preserve folder structure.

For example, I mark D:\Songs\Set1\Album1\Track01.mp3
And tell to move to D:\Dup
Then instead of getting file like D:\Dup\Track01.mp3
Can we get at D:\Dup\Songs\Set1\Album1\Track01.mp3

Wishlist / Saving the scanned file list
« on: March 06, 2012, 19:20:19 »
Can we have an option to save the scanned acoustic ID in a file that we can use later on? If I scan a folder with 5000 songs then can I save scan in a file so that I do not have to scan then again to compare to other set of file in different folder on different day?

Bugs / Bug in CSV export file

When I export the result in CSV file the very first file's last number is always ZERO. See the attached picture for details.

Wishlist / Re: Tag Merging
« on: March 06, 2012, 19:03:44 »
I would like an option in Option window that would allow me to keep the tags from the song which has more ID3v2 tags.

It would automate little bit so if I choose to select that option then compare the number of ID3 tags available in the song that I am keeping vs the songs that I am deleting. If one of the song that I am deleting has more ID3 tags then I would want to overwrite the tags in the song that I am keeping and then marge (fill the missing ID3 tags) tags from rest of the songs.

For example if I have 4 songs in a group and I am keeping #1 and #3 has most number of ID3 tags (ID3 frames) then I would want to overwrite the ID3 tags on #1 from #3 and then look in to #2 and #4 and see if they have any other ID3 tag that is not present in #1.

I am currently doing this using the program I wrote in VB.Net and using TagLib# library (

So how many of the suggestion are implemented in latest version? Specially inquiring about taking samples at different locations rather then first minute of song. If it is not implemented then is on timeline?
