useful tool to identify tagging inconsistencies - thetalm - 10-02-2014 17:45

As it's clearly stated in online doc, MinimServer is case aware, so for instance case differencies in Artist tag are treated as different artists.

Having thousands of tracks, until now my only way to check for case inconsistencies was to manually browse the artists list.

Now I've just discovered a MediaMonkey extension named "Tagging Inconsistencies" that is really impressive, because it's able to discover hundreds of different kinds of inconsistencies (not only in cases) in all tags, allowing you to manually choose how to fix them.

Unitl that, I believed my tags were meticolously correct, but using this tool I was able to fix almost one hundred of inconsistencies I wasn't aware before.

Hope this can help.

This is very interesting, and it sounds like a good solution for this situation. Does it prompt the user with a suggestion for the "correct" value, or does it show all variations and let the user pick one?

The latter. It shows you a tree with all variations divided by issue, The list of items checked is really huge.
The extension checks 4 main areas: Albums, Folders, Persons (Artist, Album Artist, Composer..), and Tracks

Just to show you, this is the configuration screen for the "Persons" area:
