the song announce is now working good on win7, but i don't use this feature because the voice speaks in English only: unfortunately it cannot be bilingual, English and French for instance..

Thanks.

Pirk,

Haven't quite figured out how to get the voices to appear in the select box in ej options like on XP
but the Voice should be tied to the same voice selected in the Windows 7 control panel. Type Speech in the control panel search to find it.
Only one voice Microsoft Ann i think was showing on my win 7 control panel. I don't know..does French Windows 7 come with a French voice?

The only voice i have on my win7 French install is an English voice! (Microsoft Anna), but it seems there is a trick to add French voices installing Microsoft Reader: http://www.zebulon.fr/astuces/200-synthese-vocale-windows-en-francais.html

However even if, using the trick, i could install a French voice, that will still not be ideal for me. because in ejukebox i play French AND English songs at the same time: How ejukebox could select the right language depending on the French or English titles? I fear it's impossible, or at least not easy i suppose!?

Thanks.

well if i can figure out how to get the voice name selection working in EJ it might be possible
then EJ could detect french characters or words and switch between the 2 voices automatically

Ah, that's a good idea. The time calculation for other file types will be helpful as well.

While trying to set new compilation flags vis EJ, I noticed that EJ seems to be mangling tags that it rewrites...
See the below example using dBPoweramp to read the tag (though the same things happens in other editors like Mp3tag.)
EJ can read its new tags fine, but no other program can. Additionally, I have a loss of meta data such as all my replay gain settings and MusicBrainz info. I've only tried on MP3s so far. I haven't broken into my FLACs yet.

In any case, this is not good.
I can send you and example file if that's helpful

v5.26

Thanks CiXel for the sample file and for reporting this.

There must be a duplicate frame somewhere in that sample.mp3.
With the attached exe it now automatically fixes duplicate frames on writing instead of choking. I tested with the sample and the main fields now show correct after EJ writing to the tag with the song editor.
Please test this exe and let me know how the extra fields come out

Yes!
This seems to work properly now. I've marked a bunch of MP3 files as compilations and they seem to have been written successfully. Thanks for the quick fix. Now to fix the other tags ;)



Side note. After this was 'fixed' I tested writing tags to FLAC files to make sure this wasn't affecting them by. They seem to work OK as well presently. There were 2 things I noticed.

1) ASNCOMP does not seem to get written back to the FLAC files when the COMP flag was updated.

2) If you change a title in the song editor and hit the forward button to save, the change DOES get written to the FLAC file but does not seem to update in the DB, so if you then hit backwards it shows the old value.

This is not an issue with MP3 files which reflect the change when you return to the edit song entry.

CiXel,

i have updated the installers to v5.26 to incorporate this.
You should probably download the upgrade from audiosoft.net/download.htm because i made a change to id3 cover writer after you got the exe attachment.
well i am going to get some rest now as i was up all night working on the fix. glad it did the trick. will test flac when i wake up.

So for MP3 files the flag flipped is 'asncomp' from 0 to 1
'Compilation' is never changed

for Flac 'asncomp' is never written and 'Compilation' is modified 0 to 1

Which are we using? (I'd prefer 'Compilation') Whichever, it should be consistent.

Back to tagging
Flac compilation flag writing is a mixed bag.
Untagging from Compilation 'yes' to 'no' works 100% of the time
Trying to retag back to 'yes' doesn't always seem to take on the file, but the DB does get updated.

I created the following sample file from a file that was exhibiting this. Hopefully it still has the issue.

Attachment: Sample.flac (1.43mb)
This file has been downloaded 210 times

mp3 should be writing to both TCMP compilation as well as asncomp.
It reads TCMP from id3 and if it doesn't exist or is 0 it reads asncomp if it exists.

Flac and MP4 read/write their standard Compilation.

Keep in mind if the Artist starts with "Various" it always gets read as a compilation.

Just updated official v5.26's audiosoft.net/download.htm links with a new exe. tested the flac sample and checking and unchecking compilation in the editor appears to work in the tag. this now also writes MP4 embedded cover image when dropped on the editor or use image from. also updated the tag notes on the features page on audiosoft.net to be current with this.

This is still not quite happy. In fact, I noticed Rechecking 'Compilation' for Mp3's is also not getting written 100% of the time. (I couldn't find an older version to test against to see if this is new behavior or not)

I PM'ed you a video of what I'm seeing along with some sample files.

Let me know what I can do to help.

Thanks for the video CiXel.
I put quotes around the compilation 1 and 0 in the code; maybe there was a type casting problem. Also when it doesn't update on the entire album you will need to click > in the editor to save. Flac seems to work perfect now. Mp3 still not adding Compilation right...working on it.

OK first the bad news.
Turns out read/write mp3 id3 TCMP compilation flag does not work because TCMP is not part of the id3 standard. i could make EJ detect it but to do so i would be forced to make EJ always read from the mp3 tag twice in 2 different ways. same for writing to the TCMP. i really don't want to do this as it will make db setup and the song editor slower.

Good news is the v5.27 now on audiosoft.net/download.htm supports reading the "MusicBrainz Album Type" TXXX tag. When "MusicBrainz Album Type" = compilation EJ will set compilation in the database on import. if not it will look for EJ's asncomp tag.

Cixel can you tell me what "MusicBrainz Album Type" says when it is not a compilation? Once i figure that out i will add write support from the editor for that tag.

Also for FLAC i noticed in your samples that
releasetype = compilation just like "MusicBrainz Album Type" on mp3.
So i made it check for that first before compilation = 1 or 0
i am just unsure of what the value should be when releasetype not "compilation". once i know i will add write support for releasetype on flac and musicbrainz on mp3.

OK... First the Bad News
On MP3's this field is called 'MusicBrainz Album Type'
on FLAC's this field is called 'releasetype'
(Might still be the same TXXX frame but I'm not sure)
Joy.

That said
The options for Release Type are:
I don't know
Album
Single
EP
Compilation
Soundtrack
Spokenword
Interview
Audiobook
Live
Remix
Other

Side note:
I hate the fact that the itunes comp flag is non-standard and in such widespread use. I can fully understand not writing it for MP3's as part of normal use. You may want to consider adding a persistent checkbox (that starts unchecked) in the update/scan window 'check for iTunes compilation flag (much slower)'. This would allow those users with existing tags in place to gain the benefits of reading them and having EJ automatically pick them up.

changed my mind...
because the anscomp = 0 already being 0 would change MusicBrainz to album. better to only write to asncomp on mp3 and compilation on flac

this reads flac releasetype for compilation first and if not then compilation = 1 or 0

mp3 it is reading musicbrainz album type for compilation and if not then asncomp = 1 or 0

Yeah, I prefer that as then EJ won't mess with anyone's meticulously groomed tags =P Reading is super helpful though as it hopefully means the checkbox won't ever have to be messed with and when it is it's a simple bit flip.

For MP3's does it make sense to 'standardize' and write to Compilation = 1/0 as well?

MP3 tags are back to 'breaking' with the above exe.
Does not happen with the 5.26 'upgrade' posted at download.


Compilation 'on' tagging is exhibiting the same behavior as in video with above exe.

Ah good point... it does use TCMP even though it just shows Comp=1

That probably explains my confusion earlier when it looked like EJ 'wasn't updating' that tag.

Just stick with asncomp for writing to mp3's. It's been well loved over the years. And if someone REALLY want to set a TCMP tag for those, it could be done using DBpoweramp's utility codec (or mp3tag). It won't matter to most people what's done in the background as long as they see it show up properly in EJ upon import, so it's more important to have the extra read parameters that you've set up anyway.
