Song not on CD error

Post by drewling390 » Wed May 28, 2008 8:34 pm

When trying to have songs tagged properly, I've often been getting the error: [Song] not found on [Album]. Yet clearly from the list after, it is on the album, but possibly not in the same format. For example:

'Next Heap With' not on '…I Care Because You Do':1:Acrid Avid Jam Shred, 2:The Waxen pith, 3:Wax the nip., 4:Icct Hedral (edit), 5:VENTOLIN (Video Version), 6:COME ON YOU SLAGS!, 7:Start as you Mean to go on, 8:Wet tip hen ax, 9:mookid., 10:Alberto Balsalm, 11:cow cud is a twin., 12:next heap with.

Clearly Next Heap With is on the album, but the album song is labelled in lowercase. In other words, MPFreaker does not seem to be smartly analyzing the titles. Is there a way to have MPFreaker analyze the titles better?

MPFreaker is normally quite good at ignoring unimportant differences (such as upper/lower case and connective words) between text items when looking for a match, but not so good in this case. Here, the period (full stop) at the end of track 12's title is apparently what is confusing MPFreaker.

We're working on a more flexible text matching system, and we'll definitely make sure this case is dealt with. Until then, you can turn on "Allow partial matches" to avoid this.
