Matroska Audio (MKA) Tags not appearing properly, Where does foobar expect to contain the album title and date?

I used mkvmerge to combine a cue, flac, and cover.jpg into a MKA file. Looking at the tags with mkvextract, it all appears correct. However, Foobar2k is not properly reading the album title, nor the "date" field. The tag is "DATE_RELEASED", however, this is somehow showing up in Foobar as "RELEASE DATE". Not sure how/why.

My question is: What tag / where does foobar expect to contain the album title and date? I can adjust my mkvmerge procedures accordingly. I have a large collection and will be scripting the changeover to mka containers, so "fixing" the tags in Foobar is not an option, especially since foobar accesses them via a read-only windows share.

The latter is simply the displayed name. Change it in Preferences>Advanced>Display>Properties if you want to.

So, what about the album title? Is it not being shown at all, or is it being shown under a name different from its literal one in the file, as above?

It's not displaying the album title at all. Here's the screenshot:

My guess (and it's nothing more than a guess after a cursory viewing of the Matroska tagging specs) is that foobar is only parsing those tags which have a TargetTypeValue of 30.

That's not a bad guess at all, and makes at least a little bit of sense. It is a little surprising though, because Foobar will pull the ALBUM tag from a cuesheet no problem (where it's defined at the top).

I need to run my MKA tests on another file (24-bit audio this time), so i'll change the tag format and see what happens.

I looked into this - i'm still not sure what's going on there. There's no entry in the preferences that matches the data in the MKA tags; nor does anything in the prefs match <RELEASE DATE>.

Okay, i've picked at it some more. I don't think FooBar2000 is properly parsing the tag xml. The file i provided follows the specification on the matroska site:
http://matroska.org/technical/specs/tagging/index.html

Foobar is not properly taking into account certain tags at the TargetTypeValue=50 level.

I tested this tonight - i hand prepared another MKA file with the correct Chapter information but without any tagging information. I brought the un-tagged file into Foobar and set the missing tags. Passed that off to mkvextract tags, and here are the interesting bits:

CODE
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Now, you'll notice, it's setting some attributes with TargetTypeValue=30 that have no Targets. This is against spec. For example:

CODE
<Tag>
<Targets>
<TargetTypeValue>30</TargetTypeValue>
</Targets>
<Simple>
<Name>GENRE</Name>
<String>Chiptune</String>
<TagLanguage>und</TagLanguage>
<DefaultLanguage>1</DefaultLanguage>
</Simple>
</Tag>


IT's also strange that the GENRE tag didn't get kept with the other malformed tags:

CODE

<Tag>
<Targets>
<TargetTypeValue>30</TargetTypeValue>
</Targets>
<Simple>
<Name>ARTIST</Name>
<String>bLiNd</String>
<TagLanguage>und</TagLanguage>
<DefaultLanguage>1</DefaultLanguage>
</Simple>
<Simple>
<Name>COMMENT</Name>
<String>Blumpkin</String>
<TagLanguage>und</TagLanguage>
<DefaultLanguage>1</DefaultLanguage>
</Simple>
</Tag>


Any chance this can be resolved in a future release? Would love to see FooBar handle MKA files as well as it handles CUE+FLAC.

The tag is "DATE_RELEASED", however, this is somehow showing up in Foobar as "RELEASE DATE". Not sure how/why.
The latter is simply the displayed name. Change it in Preferences>Advanced>Display>Properties if you want to.
I looked into this - i'm still not sure what's going on there. There's no entry in the preferences that matches the data in the MKA tags; nor does anything in the prefs match <RELEASE DATE>.
Yeah, sorry: I was misremembering. Field-names shown in that format (angled brackets and all caps) are ones for which no user-specified name have been configured. My guess is that foobar2000 is re-mapping DATE_RELEASED to <RELEASE DATE> internally due to some preference of its own or to maintain consistency with other format(s), but Iím afraid I canít offer more help about that or your Matroska-specific points. Hopefully someone else can!

So, is there a bugzilla i can report this to? I can't find any more official place to report this bug. And i'd love to see it resolved - this will make managing my music so much easier. But i'm not going to make the effort of properly converting 1100+ albums to MKA if there's not good support for the format - VLC isn't geared toward audio, and FooBar can't really work with a properly tagged MKA file. It just seems wrong for me to use a tagging scheme that is against spec JUST so Foobar will support the file.

Problem acknowleged, thanks for reporting.

However, due to the overall complexity of Matroska tag handling, I can't guarntee that I will be able to work on this anytime soon.


PS. A small sample file would be useful (uploads forum).

Thanks for the note Peter! I've created a topic in the upload forum as you suggested. The post includes data on how the files were created. You can go directly to the post with this link.
