Finger printing & auto tag.

Post by cuetipper » Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:43 am

Reading the info on auto tag from web it says "if the title is missing its looked up via an audio fingerprint.
So by default if the track has the Incorrect title it will not be corrected.
If i want to ensure that my collection is accurate need I delete all the titles before auto tagging?

What process shold I use to be sure all my existing tracks get corrected?

Disable to prefer faster metadata lookups under Tools > Options > Metadata Lookup.

For that you may have to enable/adjust the confidence setting in the same place.

What does the Status show for files that haven't had a correct suggestion (from your incorrect tags)?

Can you share some files (via a fileshare like Dropbox) that exhibit this issue. You can add a link to the fileshare to a Support Ticket to share privately.
