Separator Tag not consistent.

Post by denbartman » Wed Oct 16, 2013 2:22 pm

Hi,

I'm using MM to tag my library and XBMC to play on my media center. I have FLAC & MP3 files
Now I noticed the separator tag in multi-value fields is not consistent between tags. (For MP3)

In the artist the separator seems always to be '/'
The genre separator in FLAC also is '/'
but in MP3 files it is '; '

This seems to be a bug? Or is there a reason for this inconsistency? (I only have MP3 & FLAC, so i don't know about other formats)
In xbmc the separator tag is definable, but once set it applies to artist & genre for any format.

Is there a chance this will be fixed?

Thanx
Bart

It is because of ID3v2.3 spec, details here: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view. ... 480#c17439

As far as I know the official specs say it should be '/', and mm uses a "; " in the id3v2.3 tag
The artist is split correctly in the id3v2.3 tag with the '/' separator.
