Title: Auto-Tagging Feature
Post by: bluemonday91 on March 23, 2018, 01:40:56 PM
Hello Mr. Alexander and whoever reading,

It's my first post here but it's about ~6 years since I've been using this amazing music player. It's lightweight, very well built to be integrated in the OS environment, minimalist, and organized. Before my choices used to be Winamp and iTunes and it's comprehensible why I ditched them for this great player!

Strictly to the motif that brought me here – auto-tagging features – I wonder if it's possible for you in future versions to include this, being the sources preferably discogs, but also FreeDB.org (the latter seems to be much more easy to get metadata from, as you don't need to login, at least on Foobar2000).

I would even work with you to achieve this much-needed feature but my computing skills are limited to very basic MATLAB coding. Haha. So if I any coder wants to step in and help it, I'm sure a bunch of us Winylists would be very grateful.

Kind regards and keep up the good work,

I recommend to use any 3rd-party software for auto-tagging like Mp3tag, MusicBrainz Picard etc.
Of course, if someone wants to implement it in Winyl, I don't mind.
