Interpretation of WAV/AIFF in directory structure (artist-album-trackname)
Deduct artist-album-trackname from directory structure for WAV/AIFF, making these formats usable for cover art.
WAV support has been added into bliss, so this idea is no longer needed: http://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2015/11/17/new-release-20151110-aiff-wav-tagging/
The library we use for tagging is just about to add AIFF and WAV support. Could anybody interested in this send me a few sample files?
Thanks Alwin, that's a great article.
Players that I'm sure of are:
- AudioGate (partial, not all tags)
Not so sure:
JRiver (I haven't got it installed right now)
Not supported by:
Foobar 1.18 (in my experience, though it is said otherwise)
Reported on other website http://www.thewelltemperedcomputer.com/KB/WAV_KB.htm :
A couple of developers use the same convention to write IDV3 tags in WAV.
This convention is supported by
•JRiver Media Center
There might be others but these are the ones known to me."
It's not out of the question, as such, it's just that no de facto, well agreed approach to WAV tagging has ever been agreed. If it begins to look like a consensus is forming, sure it could be added.
It might be helpful if you could list all software that you know that reads WAV tags, that way I can check how each piece of software works to inform how bliss itself would work.
Dan, why should id-tags and covert art in wav be out of the question?
DBPoweramps supports it and increasing numbers of players can read them from wav.
There is nothing that would prevent you from adding all these to wav-files.
And wav is the better format for playback rather than flac
wav support like dBpoweramp has, thanks
AIFF support is already a fairly well supported idea ( http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1040863-album-art-for-aiff ) so hopefully that can solve half of your problem. You may also be interested in http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2458603-use-the-folder-and-file-name-to-help-identify-song which is about using file/folder names to identify music.
That said, I think it unlikely WAV tagging will ever be supported so some sort of file/folder interpretation would be the only way to do this. And, relating to cover art, embedded art is obviously out of the question.
