Question about minimserver warnings
Hello

When scanning with minimserver, I have huge amount of warnings, which I would like to understand.

They are in 4 categories, and I am just giving one example of each: the error message, and what MP3TAG says about the file

A)
Warning: conflicting ALBUMARTIST values ignored
first conflicting value: Hugo Wolf
second conflicting value: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau

MP3Tag values:
ARTIST: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau\\Daniel Barenboim
ALBUMARTIST: Hugo Wolf

(BTW is \\ the proper way to separate multiple values ?)


B)
Warning: truncating incorrect value for DATE tag 2008-21-08
** This happens only on dsf files **

MP3Tag : "Year" tag value is 2008

C)
Warning: conflicting ALBUM tag value Marche slave ignored for file

MP3Tag: "Album" tag value is "Symphonies Nos. 3" (I don't see Marche Slave)

D)
Warning: ignored conflicting DISCNUMBER value 21 in file

MP3Tag: Discnumber value is 21 (which is correct)


Thx for explainations !!

Best

I presume the message is:

Warning: conflicting ALBUMARTIST values ignored for file xxxx

This message means that file xxxx has two ALBUMARTIST (not ARTIST) values: 'Hugo Wolf' and 'Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau'. If you think this is incorrect, I can look at file xxxx using a hex editor to see what tags are present in the file.

The tags value separator depends on your tagging program. For Mp3tag, the separator is \\.

DSF files use ID3v2 tags. If the tag is in ID3v2.3 format, the TDAT frame must contain a DDMM value and this message means the TDAT frame contains an MMDD value (0821) instead of a DDMM value (2108). If the tag is in ID3v2.4 format, the TDRC frame must contain a YYYY-MM-DD value and this message means the TDRC frame contains a YYYY-DD-MM value (2008-21-08) instead of a YYYY-MM-DD value (2008-08-21).

To check the tags, I mainly use MP3Tag (which is the only one which can read dsf).

What I understand is that if there are twice the same Tag (DISCNUMBER, ALBUM, ALBUMARTIST), MP3Tag does not complain, and just displays one of them. I honestly don't know what to use as software (on Mac) to do proper tagging, including displaying multiple values of same tag.

WHat I could do is save the file, and see if it does change something.

Thx Simon !

Try Metadatics for tagging on a Mac, available in the App Store.

Thank you for pointing Metadatics.

One question: does it process dsf files also ?

This software is not maintained since May 2016, and the website of the developper is down for "Whois Verification"; so it looks like a dead app...

RE: Question about minimserver warnings
According to the version history, support for DSD/DSF was added in version 1.5. Shame it's no longer being actively developed.

RE: Question about minimserver warnings
I’ve recently discovered Kid3 (available from SourceForge) to help tagging dsf files. I have a Windows system but it indicates it is available for MacOS.

Oh! and it shows multiple tags as separate tags rather than as separated values in a single tag.

FYI SongKong also supports DSF, and with the default lite version you can do manual editing without having to purchase a license.
