RE: cPlay 2.0b27 Released

Hi everyone, I have been on another planet for the past 6 months but am now catching up on all the posts, as well as updating my system to the latest versions.

About the composer name issue in cue sheets, there is a tag specifically for this in the specs called SONGWRITER. Me and my friend have been working on this issue and are transferring huge collections of music to hard disc, I've got now over 1000 CDs with the same number of cue sheets to edit and this is a big issue, not to mention managing the GENRE tags as well.

It would be nice if there was a way to support this eventually in cMP and cPlay to make it a little easier to navigate a big collection of music.

I've included a part of one of our cue sheets as an example below as well as the cue sheet standard description for that tag.

SONGWRITER
Description:

This command is used to specify the name of a songwriter for a CD-TEXT enhanced disc.
Syntax:

SONGWRITER [songwriter-string]
Parameters:

songwriter-string - Name of songwriter. If the string contains any spaces, then it must be enclosed in quotation marks. Strings should be limited to 80 character or less.
Example:

SONGWRITER "Paul McCartney"
Rules:

If the SONGWRITER command appears before any TRACK commands, then the string will be encoded as the songwriter of the entire disc. If the command appears after a TRACK command, then the string will be encoded as the songwriter of the current track. Note: If your recorder does not support CD-TEXT, then this command will be ignored.
