Bitrate not recognized.

Post by Wisperbird » Sat Apr 21, 2018 1:30 pm

If have music files the I saved myself. I know not what program I used.
MediaMonkey states that he can not determent the size, bitrate nor type.
MediaJukebox has no problem and displays the variable bit rate. (I believe it's the only one that does that during playback)
I saved it using variable bit rate (maybe joint stereo as well)
Windows 10 displays only basics, Mediamonkey does not display details and MediaJukebox displays it all.

Think this works, so you can download the file ??

My MM shows it correctly. Is your MM up to date?
Also according to MediaInfo the encoder used by MediaJukebox is ancient. Consider updating that as well or find an alternative?

The file likely has some corruptions that causes these issues. You may want to offer a sample to Support.

You can download the sample in my original post, but to be sure, here it is again;

After I chanced the album art, the files now display the bit rate.
So maybe corruption was the culprit.

Sorry

What I do not understand is why MJ sees a lot more and why MM only sees one artist name I did alter in MM.
Updating tag info in MediaJukebox has the same effect

Hoping it makes sense to support

Note that MediaMonkey requires rescanning of the file after you make changes to it outside of MediaMonkey.

In this case updating the tags in MediaJukebox (Machine A), to my surprise resulted in a complete update of the running instance of the album (MediaMonkey) on Machine B.
I did not need to refresh. @ Lowlander, So what you say, isn't necessarily true.
B.t.w. I belief corrupt is not the right word, maybe it is just an old standerd tag info.
So the bug can be overcome by altering just one field in MediaJukebok 14

But I'm still puzzled why all old MediaJukebox (seven in those days), I used since Windows NT has a superior algorithm in reading tag info.

It may be done automatically (if you enabled Folder Monitoring) or you're working in the My Computer node.
