couldn’t be opened using text encoding Unicode (UTF-8)

Song Sergeant couldn't open the iTunes xml because it wasn't properly encoded -- which unfortunately iTunes does from time to time, usually relating to when some accented characters are part of a song file's path. Luckily, the next post-1.2.2 release of Song Sergeant will work around this so that no...

No album artwork icon in Finder

I can think of only one way for this to happen: There is a particular metadata format (MP3 ID3 v2.4) that iTunes has always encoded improperly, and cannot read when it is encoded properly by other software. Checking just now, the OS X QuickLook plugin which provides song files with their icons suffe...

Example?

That is, in iTunes the 'songs' appear to have the same names, but in Song Sergeant they have different names and therefore do not register as duplicates.

Neither LF nor CR I should think

2) of the corresponding Finder "Get Info" window?

Thanks.

Re: permissions

The directions I gave should resolve any permissions problems but perhaps there's something else going on that is related. Can you navigate in Finder to a song file indicated by Song Sergeant's error message and use Finder's File>Get Info command on it, and post here what it shows for "Locked" and w...

Another resolved

This was also resolved through email. Here, it was because their "User Name" was simply too short but Kagi accepted it anyway.

Lyrics for song titles having parentheses

w.izzy, MPFreaker 1.9.3 beta 3 now does this if you have "Allow partial matches" enabled.

You can get it by going into Preferences and under "Check for updates automatically" set it to "Beta test releases" and then perform a "Check for updates..." from the MPFreaker menu.
