Can we make MP4 tags freeform? #323
Original issue 323 created by towolf on 2009-10-05T16:04:17.000Z:
I’ m aware that MP4 tags are basically the reverse-engineered set that iTunes introduced
But the set of tags available to us in MP4 just doesn’t cut it. Especially the available people
What I would need are
I’m aware that these tags won’t be displayed in iTunes or on the iPod – I have neither –
I’d rather have consistency in my library on my own computer.
I made a GitHub account just to comment on this, but I want to echo previous comments that the lack of tags available for MP4 files is really limiting.
In my own case I just want to be able to filter by mood (----:com.apple.iTunes:MOOD) because that's how I prefer to browse music, but a sizable portion of my library are iTunes MP4 files and QL won't read the tag.
QL is such an excellent program that even when I seek out alternatives to let me do what I want I end up right back here, so I will likely just abandon this method of browsing until this issue gets addressed in the future :(
