New FEatures Request

An ideal featture would be to scan WMA's and aldo commercial CD music.  I don't know if you would have to add cddb access or not, but "Boss" would truly be a total catalog program.

Re: New FEatures Request

The WMA embedded tag format is about as convoluted as the ID3v2 tag format...so I'm waiting for a WMA tag library so I don't have to do all that work myself.  I'm hopeful that something will be coming out soon.  If the WMA library was already here...I would have added WMA instead of WAV.  WAV tags are easy.

I'm not as sure about cataloging Music CDs (CDA<CD Audio> format).  At some point I plan to query FreeDB (a free alternative to CDDB), and I've already done testing.  FreeDB makes it pretty easy to calculate a CDID, and get artist/album/title/track information about a Music CD.  Music CDs are ONLY on CD, and so the file tools and tagging tools of MP3-Boss wouldn't be of value.

On the other hand...I'm sure there are a lot of people that have tons of Music CDs that they use to create their MP3 files.

Should these be in a separate database instead of all-in-one?  Or since it is all music....should everything be stored in MP3-Boss?

Comments?

Re: New FEatures Request

Oops.. Disreguard my feature request for WMA files. I feel that MP3 should list ALL audio files and be able to sort by extention See All MP3 or All WMA files...
