View Full Version : Ignored Meta Data (ID3)

October 23rd, 2008, 11:47 AM
Why does Boxee ignore ID3 tags in my music collection and instead attempt to guess at the information?

I have a good deal of uncommon music, and I have spent a lot of time tagging, organizing and adding album art to my music files to near perfection. However, when I index my collection in Boxee, all of this hard work is wasted and Boxee makes (mostly incorrect) guesses based on Internet queries (I assume). I have no problems with my collection in XBMC.

Additionally, I think there should be a party mode (similar to XBMC). I seldom wish to only listen to just one CD at a time.

Um... I know what ID3 is, but I appreciate your input(?).

hi uncon

we understand your dilemma ..you can manually try and recognize your music..boxee should read your ID3 tags .can you send me an example of the music not indexed..

I have a Starbucks Album called Remember artist John Lennon. As this is not a standard release, I have never found it on any site. Boxee sees this as Remember by Josh Groban although it does show the correct jpg. I try and manually resolve this and do not have the option of selecting the correct album. I also have some Japanese utf 8 enabled music which Boxee cannot resolve. Would be very happy to forward you what files you ened to confirm and or resolve this.
