I am using MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID and MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID for some tagging roles (not what it was designed for but works for me) but I have noticed that flacs are always found but MP3 files are missing under these tags
I use MP3Tag (and my own code) to the tagging and all the tags show up in MP3tag


Any ideas ?

It appears that MP3Tag saves those tags, for MP3 files, with a name that is different to that displayed within the software, i.e.

MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID --> MUSICBRAINZ ARTIST ID
MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID --> MUSICBRAINZ ALBUM ID

In addition to adding the 'different' tag name to your indexTag/itemTag property, you may like to populate the Minimserver aliasTags property:-

MUSICBRAINZ ALBUM ID:MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID
etc.
Thanks, Alan.

If you want to see these as MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID and MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID for all files, you don't need to change indexTags or itemTags. Just add the aliasTags settings.

Doh! Of course. Blush
