Gotham update notes

Just throwing some of my notes about what seems to have changed in v13 Gotham. -- Ned Scott (talk) 21:04, 11 May 2014 (EDT)

  • artist.nfo - Some kind of NFO-like file that can also contain MusicBrainz URLs?
  • album.nfo - Some kind of NFO-like file that can also contain MusicBrainz URLs?
  • Apparently there's some MusicBrainz tag in MP3s and other music files. If the tag is there then it overrides everything, taking priority over all other tags in the music file. If the MusicBrainz tag is different from the other internal tags, this can lead to duplicates?
  • MB tags work for both song info and extra data for artist and album
  • "Allow online data to override music tags"

note from night199uk:

 Essentially, the DESIRED behaviour is:
1) If you don't have MusicBrainz tags and you have the option turned off, you should see the exact same as you saw in Frodo
2) If you don't have MusicBrainz tags and you have the option turned on, you should see the exact same as you saw in Frodo
3) If you have MusicBrainz tags and you have the option turned off, you should see the exact same as you saw in Frodo
4) If you have MusicBrainz tags and you have the option turned on, you should get dynamic metadata from MusicBrainz. i.e. once you've MusicBrainz tagged your files once, your library and metadata is built dynamically from up-to-date MusicBrainz data, and later KEPT up-to-date and refreshed automatically so you always have good tags.
