Re: ID3 Tags v2.3, v2.4 issue

Martin,

The only way to determine what's going on here is for you to send one or two of these songs that aren't displaying properly in MPFreaker to support@lairware.com. I promise to sort it out one way or the other.

Beta period over!

MPFreaker 1.5 is now properly released!

Beta 7 won't expire for a while, but the beta download links in this forum topic are now broken, unsurprisingly.

'Lock' in leftmost MPFreaker column

The lock doesn't mean exactly the same thing as the "Locked" checkbox in Finder's "Get Info" window. MPFreaker's lock symbol indicates that, for whatever reason, that song file cannot be modified. This can be caused by a song file being locked, but in your case it is likely to be a permissions issue...

What to do when you've lost your registration code

Just send an e-mail to support@lairware.com with whatever information you can recall related to the purchase. If your e-mail address is still the same, that's enough.

Beta 7 available

Alright, we're coming in to the home stretch for 1.5. Beta 7 is now available for your poking and prodding. New feature: The search field can now also instantaneously search all of your song lyrics for a word or phrase. The interface is supposed to be grokkable enough that I don't need to explain an...

MPFreaker 1.5 beta 6

We've flip-flopped back to allowing lyrics gathering for 1.5. Beta 6 also has a host of other minor improvements, and is also a testbed for a couple of new internal information-gathering ideas that may or may not make it into the final release. Once again, it's at the same URL: http://www.pixeltoy.c...

The state of 1.5

MPFreaker 1.5 will still have much nicer lyrics display and editing features than iTunes. I do accept that the automatic lyrics gathering capability was "the big feature" though, aside from being a Universal Binary. It's a crying shame indeed. As for good quality art ... I unfortunately cannot have ...

MPFreaker 1.5 beta 5 available

Beta 5 is now up at the same URL as before ( http://www.pixeltoy.com/mpfreaker-1.5beta.zip ). The most significant improvement over beta 4 is that many, many bugs have been fixed in the Intel code. Beta 5 now appears stable and trustworthy on Intel macs. Lyrics gathering is out. Because of legal act...

1.5b4 up now

Beta 4 of MPFreaker 1.5 is up now at the same URL.

No single dramatic change, but improved results overall.

Sorry about the lack of response ...

The online forums aren't really an appropriate place for technical support, what with the back-and-forth of very specific questions that normally come up. My apologies for not posting to this effect immediately. Technical support is normally conducted through support@lairware.com, and I normally pos...

Confirmation & Choice

MPFreaker does not currently offer any confirmation of the information it has gathered, before it adds/overwrites the existing information types you had specified. This has been one of the more often requested capabilities, often in conjunction with letting the user pick from multiple results. As an...

MPFreaker 1.5 beta 3 now available

Yes, there's a new beta available at the same address as before.

The most important change is that it is now a Universal Binary to run natively on Intel Macs when they are released. Lots of minor tweaks as well.

No magic wand indeed.

You did try it out before you bought it, right? Only modifying three songs at a time is restrictive, but I would have expected that you'd certainly notice such poor results in a short time. That said, I can confidently say that your appraisal of only a 20% correct data rate -- and worse, a 10% outri...

Lyrics etc.

Incorrect lyrics seem to be a not-so-uncommon problem on a lot of lyrics web sites. There's not a lot I can do about this. :( More bad news - this feature may be scuppered before it makes it to a release version! The actions of Warner records aren't heartening: < http://www.pearworks.com/pages/pearL...
