Tester for updateMedia id3 unicode fix needed
« on: May 27, 2010, 01:48:48 pm »
Hi everybody,

it seems as we have some problems reading id3 files with special characters. At the moment I try to change the underlaying tagging library to fix this, but I need some help testing the stuff. At this point I haven't added any new features, so testing would be limited to everything that is possible with the original version (like scanning, removing/editing of tags, etc.).

As this is an early version, you maybe shouldn't use it on your productive systems.

UpdateMedia.rar (784 KB)



An actual patch can be found here: http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/698



Thanks for your help,
KingCrab

Hello, can you provide an svn diff to attach to a trac ticket, so we can track this?

@Thom: I will, but give me some time to get a working version at first. I don't like the idea of publishing crap that is not usable in any way.

@Murcel Just download the file and play a little bit with it. If available scan some files with and without special chars, edit Attributes, remove them,  play the files. What you would do in regular use.

First tests are good.
German umlauts are imported correctly.

Dude, that's not the point, maybe we'd like to _HELP_.

I do not want "go off in a cave and do all the work yourself" to be the norm.

hmm.

That's strange. Didn't know I touched the video part. Could you descripe what happens? Does it definitely happen with the last version for the first time?

I have done more testing it looks like it happens with earlier versions as well. The same result happens if the .mp3 file dont contain any tags.
