MKA file tagging support in Kodi?

Thanks for the update Dave.

The current workaround is still working for me. (Cue file - so it’s not critical for me)

Please add to 18.4 when it is forked. 😀

There’s a minor issue with Kodi 18.3 (and 19.0 alpha) where the UI showing play time is showing the seconds going up and down extremely fast for DTSHD (and both DTSHD and TrueHD in 19.0 alpha). The progress bar at top of music screen is also jumping forward and back as it progresses.

EDIT: Above now resolved by setting Kodi's TV interface to 1080p 60Hz (originally tested with it set to 2160p 24Hz)

I’m using the Aeon Nox Silvo in 18.3. But probably not skin related.
I have same issue with progress bar jumping and already have interface set to 1080p/60. I am using Aeon Nox in 18.5. Any ideas?

Hi,
tagging .mka files with chapters without cue file, containing dtshd music files, in each version of Kodi (17;18;19) : Genre, Artist, Album, Title, etc.
1) Taking it in the Lib.
2) Looking in the Database myMusicxx
3) Theres nothing wrote into the database.

3) All Information is in the Database except Genre

To solve (its maybe to much work):
open mka file in mkvtoolnix chapter editor.
Export chaprters to xml file
Delete chapters in mka file in mkvtoolnix
scan mka file to lib
write chapter.xml file back to mka.file with mkvtoolnix - all is ok
It seems that mka.files are only read in the moment of scanning to the lib. (That must be without chapters)
After beeing in the lib, the chapters are no longer important - but are shown in musicosd.

Jumping of the Progressbar and the time is in each version, when setting the passthrough mode. Disabling passthrough and it ends. Jumping is only with paplayer.

I hope someone could make the things easier to handle.
Mike

Ideally Kodi will eventually load it’s music dB from MKA tags.

No chapters and a cue works ok. I’m not sure why you want to put chapters back in the MKA file? Kodi doesn’t use them, does it?

its a very strange thing. Try to use diefferent Tags in mka file and in cue file. p.e. in mka file GENRE is "Classic Music" and in cue file GENRE "classic" and you will see that Kodi reads part of tags from mka file and part of tags from cue file. If the devellopers solve the mka problem, its maybe better that chapters are in the mka files and no cue files were needed anymore. Thats why i wrote the chapter.xml back to the mka file

But if you rescan your library in future you’ll probably loose the songs/tracks again. Better just to keep the chapter file for later.

Tags in a cue must have double quotes if there is a space: “Classic Music” should work.
