Bug with cue sheets/flac
I've noticed a few times, perhaps only with certain files, that when you open the flac I guess it reads the cue sheet but the problem is it doesn't read it properly. I looked over the cue and everything looks okay but maybe I missed something, what happens is this:
I choose to play it and it adds the entire album/cue sheet to the now playing list, but what should be the first song is actually the entire album in one track. So the first track is basically the whole unsplit flac, but then there is another problem, and that is for some reason it decides to name that 'track' with the tag for track 2.
So in short, it adds the entire flac as track 1, with the tags for track 2; and then adds everything else from the cue sheet in proper split order from track 1 this time with all the correct tags.
Here are some screenshots that will hopefully explain it better:
In the first you can see the playlist with the extra unsplit flac at the top:
This next one shows the correct tags for the actual flac:
And the last one shows the 'fake' tags that guayadeque gave the unsplit flac it added:
EDIT: Actually I opened up the flac with banshee to check the tags and I guess it's a bit confusing but when I checked it with Guayadeque the second image above shows the correct tag for track one, which I figured out by the time in the screenshot. So the actual file has a wrong tag which is of track 2, and I guess is ok since it's an unsplit album and the only option would be to rename the actual flacs 'track' title as the album name.
So in image two it is actually showing the actual flacs 'track title' tag in the now playing list, which is correct, it just shouldn't show the actual flac as a track in Now Playing.
can you send me a link for the files to check here ?
Would you happen to know a good way to compress the files as they are about 490 mb? It will take a while to upload, but if you want I can do it tomorrow sometime.
just send the cue. I will point it to some flac file here.
I just emailed it, but I figured out the problem is mostly more of a technical error on my behalf, which only occurs when trying to add the entire folder like it's an album from the file browser in Guayadeque.
When this happens it adds both the flac and the cue, which seems logical after figuring it out. And after I fixed the tags on the flac and rescanned everything it only seems to add the flac as track one, since it's also trying to add the cue at the same time. Which helped me better understand, I shouldn't be adding them both. When I just add the cue it adds it properly, the same as if I add it from the Library,
I guess the only thing that could make it any better is if when you tried to add the flac it would check the directory for the cue instead and only add the cue if it seems to match the flac?
I also emailed the cue, but sorry for any confusion. I realize this isn't that big of a deal.
I think then that this is the expected behaivour. This way you have the two options. The whole track as one and splitted tracks.
