View Full Version : Multiple Occurrences of Tags

The Vorbis comment specification, and by extension the FLAC tag specification,
allows multiple occurrences of tags. This means that you can have two or
more instances of a given tag with the same name.

I plan to use this feature to tag some of my music with multiple genres. For
example:

ARTIST=Pearl Jam
GENRE=Rock
GENRE=Grunge

I was wondering how SlimServer currently handles such multiple occurrences,
and hopefully start a discussion of how it *should* handle them, if it is not
already ideal.

My initial feeling is that they should be handled the same way that "Multiple
Items In Tags" is currently handled. That is, there should be a setting that
allows you to choose whether the multiple occurrences should be merged, or if
only the first or last should be used, or all of them should be independently
usable. Hope that makes sense.

Any thoughts on this issue?

Thanks.
