At the moment nightingale can partially read the meta data in Ogg Theora videos it would be nice if complete read and write support was added.

What tags are you talking of?


Ezekiel000 commented Apr 5, 2012

I would assume they are normal ogg comments (or whatever they call them) I tag my videos with this:
Mutagen that it is based on is now here: http://code.google.com/p/mutagen/

I also experienced the Vorbis tag editing of Nightingale (and Songbird) as quite tedious and error-prone. Does Nightingale use the latest taglib version?

@manko10 as of Issue #40 & #65 we are currently repatching the actual taglib. (See the taglib repo of nightingale-media-player)

@manko10 @Ezekiel000 somebody of you on windows? If so, please try the testing build at issue #65 and report back if it got any better. Note that only default tags are supported in that build.
Note that I only updated taglib, not sure if there are parts of the handler code needing an update. Not sure if ogg works at all :P

If I remember right, we currently do not use the normal taglib code for video... as the reading code puts "audio" as content type.
However, maybe there is taglib video metadata parsing somewhere else? If so, the taglib update might change something there.

Would be great if somebody could test it? Windows build: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ngale/files/testing-builds/Nightingale_1.11.1-taglib-complete_windows-i686.exe/download
