How to tag different sources?

How to tag different sources?
Dear all,

I have - for some albums - different sources (CD, records with different pressings, ...). I tagged these additionally with SOURCEMEDIA. Therefore I have added:
Code:
itemTags: Sourcemedia
tagFormat: Album.displayFormat={$album^$sourcemedia^ [^]}
This works for FLAC but not AIFF (ID3) where TMED is used to store the information. I don't want to combine the information of album and source in the ALBUM tag.

Simon, could you extend the tag mappings?

What would be a proper alternative solution?

Regards and thanks for this great software - Dirk

Which tagging program is putting SOURCEMEDIA information in TMED? I would expect this to be written as an ID3 TXXX frame.

I'm using Kid3 on OS X (coming from Linux).

I don't think anything else apart from Kid3 maps SOURCEMEDIA to TMED. Normal practice (if this tag is mapped) seems to be split about 50/50 between MEDIATYPE and MEDIA. If forced to make a choice, I would probably choose MEDIA. You could then use aliasTags to remap MEDIA to SOURCEMEDIA.

Ok. That's working - thanks a lot. Any chance that MinimServer will read the TMED frame in the future?

In Kid3 you can add custom tags, but you can't customize the mapping. I tried the famous mp3tag (via Wineskin), but it can't tag aiff. Any ideas regarding a tagger running on OS X supporting FLAC and AIFF?

I'm somewhat reluctant to do this because of the lack of an established industry standard for how the TMED tag should be mapped. I'll add it to the list of items for consideration.

I've heard very good reports about Metadatics.
