Hi Christian,

Any chance of adding MBS Taglib?

so far I didn’t add it, but we may think about what I add for 17.4.

As I got it compiled on the weekend, this is going to be included in the next prerelease.

I just played around with the MBS Taglib plugin in the 17.4 prerelease version 3 and it will save me a lot of shell commands calling Phil Harvey’s exiftool application. The only tag I frequently use not covered by the taglib plugin is “Label” (for mp3-files) or “Publisher” (for Flac-files) for getting information on the record company. Is there any chance that these tags will be added to the final version of the plugin?

Best, Guido

Well, I now wait for people’s wishes.
This is the generic interface and I could make one for ID3v2, too.
Than we may get more tags there.

Thanks, I’m looking forward to any further enhancements to the plugin
