mythmusic incorrectly reading tag / metadata on flac files

Reported by: don_coolio@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythmusic Version: 0.20
Severity: medium Keywords: mythmusic flac tag metadata
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have lots of flac files created on windows using the mediamonkey software. When loaded into into various linux (ubuntu - nautilus, Edit Tag, Audio Tag Tool etc) software they all read the tag info 100% correctly. However, MythMusic doesn't seem to read the "Album" info from the tag. Instead it reads the "artist" info twice populating both "album" and "artist" with the artist info.

I have tried to attached a file from my collection as an example howver the file size limit won't let me. Email me if you want it. This Should Read:

Artist: Beatles
Album: Let It Be
Track Number: 7
Title: Maggie Mae

It actualy gets imported as:

Artist: Beatles
Album: Beatles
Track Number: 7
Title: Maggie Mae

I have verfied this in the mythconverge database as imported incorectly rather than displayed incorrectly in MythMusic

Just installed this patch on 0.20 and it fixed the parsing issue perfectly! Thank you very much. Can this be added to the main code?
