    Re: Adding custom tags

    Ok,

    I re-booted my laptop, "Refreshed all" and ran the uMediaLibrary-dumpdb.exe.
    When I looked at the dump file the column exists but not data is being pulled. The column is empty. If you like I could send you the dump file and the MediaDatabaaseFieldsv5 file if that would help.

      It is likely that dBpoweramp is reading the tag as a different value, if you right click on a file >> Edit ID tags this will show how dBpoweramp reads the tag.

        jwr31 has confirmed in post no. 12 (in response to post no. 11), that the tag is Grouping, with the correct data, when viewed in Edit ID-Tag.

        ... jwr31, can you confirm this again please, perhaps with a screenshot?

            These aren't dBpoweramp Edit ID-Tag screenshots. Do you have dBpoweramp Music Converter installed?

            ... further digging around and I have discovered that the Audioshell Grouping tag uses the conventions used by Tag&Rename.

            The tag names used by different softwares is not standardized. I think the Tag&Rename/Audioshell Grouping tag is called Style in dBpoweramp/Asset and this tag is already predefined in the MediaDatabaseFieldsv5.txt, so you don't need to add it.

            If I am right, all you need to do is Launch Asset UPnP Configuration >> Advanced Settings >> Browse Tree

            and select the Style node/container from the dropdown list.

              Re: Adding custom tags

              You nailed it! I have been using iTunes to rip the CDs and was just using Audioshell to view the tags.

              I now see my music collection as I wanted using the Styles container. Thanks guys.

              There is one more thing I want to learn to do but am having difficulty finding information on how to do it. Basically, if I wanted to build some logic into a container how could I do that? (i.e. a container that allows me to see items with a Styles tag value of either 4 or 5). Can you point me in the right direction?

              Thanks again.

                You can use the Dynamic browsing, with including items.

                  How do we do this on unix based machines like QNAPs and Raspberry Pis?

                    Re: Adding custom tags

                    Through a ssh connection, it is not easy as requires knowledge of Linux to browse to the configuration files and edit them.

                      Can we have the file names and locations? I don't need a full tutorial but some pointers would be nice. For me, being able to add custom tags like in MinimServer is make or break. Running Asset on a windows box is not an option as I'd need a new machine.

                        For the qnap:


                        The location of Assets configuration files are: /share/MD0_DATA/.qpkg/Asset/bin/.dBpoweramp/

                        for the Pi:

                        The configuration files for Asset are stored: ~/.dBpoweramp

                          I found the file MediaDatabaseFieldsv4.txt. Thank you for that.

                          I added my custom tag (ORIGINALDATE) to the file at the bottom as originaldate,0,INTEGER. I saved the file, checked that the entry is there through CAT and then restarted AssetUPnP. When I want to edit the browse tree, I don't see the new field. Did I miss a link somewhere? Is my capitalisation not correct? What am I missing?

                            You have to manually type this new value into the tree.

                              Do you mean the tree in the webbrowser? I was expecting the drop-down list there to show the new value in the list. But I'll try typing it in later this evening. Thanks!

                                I must be missing something very obvious. I edited the file MediaDatabaseFieldsv4.txt and at the bottom of the list I added

                                Code:
                                originaldate,0,INTEGER
                                The field gets a YYYY MM DD or YYYY MM or YYYY value.

                                I then proceed to edit the AssetUPnPDefinedBrowseTreev4.txt file as follows:

                                Code:
                                Artist / Album{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
                                Artist / Album\Album
                                Album{_a_to_z_}
                                Title{_a_to_z_}
                                OriginalDate{_no_track_list_}
                                originaldate{_no_track_list_}
                                Composer{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
                                Composer\Album
                                I wasn't sure whether casing makes a difference. If it does, then OriginalDate is the tag that should be used.

                                Anyway, what am I missing*? A file? A location? Thanks for the help!
