    im not sure what your asking in the track info in mp3tag, you have to provide some info about the mp3... it cant guess what it is
    Actually with musicbrainz it can. It uses the digital thumbprint and grabs the info from an online database with virtually no input from the user. With over 100k songs, I need something like that.

    if you find that not to be the case, i would disable all plugins out side SKINTOOL
    and I HOPE YOU ARE TESTING with Skintool... good rule is dont trust any skin
    Cool. Thanks Mitch.

    I have a trial version and it seemed to work well so far, but before I would actually spend money, I want to make sure its going to cover most of my mp3 database.

    oh btw, the vendor is musicbrainz...the actual software is called magic mp3 tagger.

    One thing I noticed with my problem, before I checked "Show ID3 Playlist" and "Show ID3 Browse", was that no info would show up until I got to the 15th track in my playlist. After track 15 everything was fine. Mitch posted a screenshot of RR config on the first page of this thread. Checking those boxes made everything work for me.

    I use mp3tag, but as I use Windows Media Player to rip CD, usually the tag data is correct. I use mp3tag to embed album art. In the program is has links to Amazon to get the artwork, but I found that albumartexchange.com (free) has really good scans. I right click on the picture, and "save picture as". Then I use a photo editor to make them 500x500, then I use mp3tag to embed. It works great so far.

    Since now RR is providing the tags... dont ask where is this documented
    also, why would you want it the other way... well... hard to explain, it was for tracks (non file based) that update their metadata (urls)
    but with my webradio plugin, and the shoutcast plugin, its prob obsoleted
    and RR tagg reading is quite good now, compared to year ago
    -Thanks

    Maybe that's why I had it the other way. I've had that setting for years. Seems OK now.

    FWIW, I ended up buying that magic mp3 tagger and did a test batch of 1500 songs. They came out perfect.
