Which tags get transferred when using MC's converter?
« on: June 27, 2015, 02:12:47 am »

I've been using foobar2000 to fill discogs data to my albums and then used MC to add other metadata and convert from FLAC to Vorbis. I just noticed that not all of the tags get transferred to newly made oggs. I haven't mapped all the tags to MC's library fields but it would be nice to have them also in my lossy files in case I decide to use them later when I have nothing else to tag  ;D

bump. I think that existing tags should be transferred to the transcoded file

@ferday
Did you have only tags that are mapped to MC DB. That is the key here. I think that transcoding should preserve also the tags that are not tied to MC.

I've just attempted converting WMA Lossless to FLAC in the latest version of MC21 and a lot of compatible metadata is being thrown away.
