Full Version: Music Scraper Not Adding Certain Albums.. Editted Tags Using Foobar
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When I scan my music folder, xbmc finds the majority of my albums and scrapes the id3 tags properly. Unfortunately, I've noticed that it fails to scrape some albums so they don't show up at all in the library. I don't understand why that is; I've tried changing tons of id3 fields in the problem albums using foobar2000 but xbmc still won't add them to the library. I've tried renaming the files, cleaning the music library in xbmc, removing and adding the music source folder, etc.

Most of my music is in .flac .wav and .mp3 format.

Does anyone know how I might be able to fix it? Is there an id3 tag editor better than foobar out there that might do the trick?

EDIT: I just checked my library using winamp. It seems the albums that arn't showing up in xbmc seem to be missing the album title and track numbers in winamp. I don't know why that is though. The tags show up fine in foobar and windows explorer.
MusicBrainz Picard is a preferred tagger
Thanks I'll give that a look. I noticed that all of my .wav files aren't showing up in xbmc or winamp. They all seem to be missing the album titles and track numbers. Is the xbmc library incompatible with .wav files?
.wavs can't be tagged.
Ahhhhhh... Alright so I'll just convert these to flac. Thanks thrak Smile
Np. I ran into that same problem myself when first using XBMC!
