Change fields available for custom field tagger?

by dougo » Mon Mar 02, 2015 6:27 pm


Is it possible to change which fields available for use in the ''custom field tagger''? As you can see I have BPM and other values that I'm very unlikely to want to tag when listening to my music, is there a way to for example replace bpm with artist, etc

Hi there.
I've been using 4.0 portable for years and today I've upgraded to 4.1 . I've performed a clean install, and copied the mm.db from portable version to the AppData profile . Started MM, everything seemed to be working, but as I've tried to install my favorite extension (customfieldstagger), I got an error "Custom Fields Tagger was not installed". If I go to Tools/Extensions, it tells me the extension is installed, but it's not working/showing. If I try to uninstall it I get an error that c:\users...\Scripts\auto\CustomFieldsTagger.vbs" cannot be opened, no wonder because there is no such file. So I am now stuck - I cannot install it, and I cannot uninstall it. I've also tried extracting the vbs file from customfieldstagger103.mmip, but when I try to uninstall it, I get the error:

Error #424 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Object required File: "C:\....\CustomFieldsTagger.vbs", Line: 522, Column: 4

Any idea how to fix this? I really need the extension.


EDIT: I've copied the vbs file from my portable instance and now it seems to be working (?!)

Hi Steegy - When i use a value in the Grouping field eg, OZ Music. Custom Field Tagger changes it to Oz Music.

Hi Nohitter, I'm afraid I don't remember. Maybe a problem of dynamically adding/removing menu items.
Has someone else tried to add this to the toolbar already?

  • Add items to toolbar for faster access (Menu_TbCategorize) (DEFERING TO LATER VERSION BECAUSE OF BUG IN MM4 (and MM3?))
Is this bug reported anywhere? I'd like to escalate the issue to the devs.

You could use MagicNodes and create a node with this mask:

Code: Select all

SomeCustomField|Position:First child\<SomeCustomField|Unknown:No|Split by:;>
where SomeCustomField is the field where you put the ArtistA;ArtistB.
I've been using this for a similar purpose: a custom field with instrumentA;instrumentB --> the track should show up under the nodes instrumentA and instrumentB.

CustomFieldsTagger is exactly what I needed but I have a problem: is there a way to have multiple columns to show seperately in the column view? For example, if a song's artist is Artist A feat. Artist B, I'd like to have the song shown in both artist's artist view in the column list. I know that typing artist as "Artist A;Artist B" would do the trick, but I don't want to use this option, because other music players (and for example) don't understand that, and it would just mess up my tags. I thought that I could fix this by typing "Artist A;Artist B" in the CUSTOM column (and thus keep the actual artist field as Artist A feat. Artist B) but the problem is that in the column view the result is "Artist A;Artist B" and not "Artist A" and "Artist B" separately as I expected.

I hope you understood what I meant! Any way to fix this?

Thank you Eyal!
That is indeed what I wanted to do. Now I am able to read and correct the existing fields which are not supported by MM.
Hopefully I will soon be able to move the information from LABEL to ORGANIZATION in order to comply with Vorbis 1 spec and MM (modifying the Swap script).

In MM I changed the custom fields 1 & 2 with LABEL and LABELNO and I gave them values on a few test files:

With FLAC files it works perfectly as it creates the fields with the exact name I gave them.

With MP3 files these fields are written as 'XXXSongs-DB_Custom1' and 'XXXSongs-DB_Custom2'.
So MM has rules to change the custom field depending on the id tag type.
The ideal situation would be to allow users to manage the field mapping for each id-tag type, eventually disallowing some fields per id-tag type...

Anyway I don't plan moving out from using the Publisher field on MP3 to store the label information, but I will continue struggling with my damn LABELNO field for a while as there is no "standard" field to handle it in id3 tags.

I just tried eCustom 2.1 and CustomField tagger. Thanks to their authors.

Is there a way to edit the custom field name, in addition to setting their value?

It seems the scripts only write values in CUSTOM1, CUSTOM2, ... fields.
I modified the FieldList and FieldListDB arrays in the CustomField tagger script but I had SQL errors trying to access non-existing properties in MM DB, such as LABEL or ORGANIZATION ("PUBLISHER" works obviously).

I am not an expert so I won't go further in understanding and editing the script. I think that MM and its DB would need to be modified internally to take into account any custom field set by users or other software rather than using predefined and software-specific CUSTOM# fields. The sames goes about reading tags from files.

I would like to manage the non-standard LABEL (=ORGANIZATION) and LABELNO (Catalog number) fields in MM and potentially any field on Vorbis comments (and id3 eventually).

In Vorbis comments the LABEL field is:
- Used exclusively by Tag & Rename to handle record label information (including LABELNO), no support of ORGANIZATION :-(
- preferred by dbPoweramp over ORGANIZATION if both fields are present. Some info hidden in specific conditions here :-(
- read/written by mp3tag with a total flexibility, provided that you are aware of conflicts between LABEL and ORGANIZATION across software.

MP3tag has indeed very flexible way (the best? ) of handling custom tags as it allow a total customization of field display, allowing to display these fields separately or setup rules such as $IF(%ORGANIZATION%,%ORGANIZATION%,%LABEL%), optionally associated with id-tag specific mappings of field names.

In this grey area we all end-up using non-standard tags for different reasons and it would be great to see the MP3tag approach in use in MM.

I opened a ticket to discuss my specific issue with the support team.
