Fingerprinting Issues - hanging [#16800]

Post by cuetipper »

I seem to be having issues while fingerprinting. I have 5700+ tracks and i start to autotag, after 100 or so corrections it stops until I check the tick boxes on the visible tracks and choose the "Tag & continue" radio button. Then the next 100 or so load, after that it hangs. When I restart it does not pick up where it left off so I have been unable to complete the process.

Any Ideas?

Autotag interface

Post by cuetipper »

So I choose about 100 songs and run Autotag. I can see the status change from fingerprinting to processing to done. However many times when done it still lacks the lyrics and art work. If I update the files [tag and continue] they do not have those fields saved. If i wait however for five minutes or so those fields normally do update.

I think the DONE flag should wait until all the required fields have been completed.

Are you saying that if you do wait the data does get downloaded?

The auto-tag feature will only process 100 or so tracks at a time. And then you need to review and tick each track prior to updating the info. This feature should be renamed as batch tag from web. And a true auto-tag feature added added that will go thru all selected tracks and update them automatically as it finds the info.

I was just working with aprox 7800 tracks - at 100 a time it is labor intensive.
I have 65k+ to go.

A true auto tag would be very helpful........

We could add something like 'Auto-tag in background' ... added to my TODO
