Sharing MP3s of any kind will be a mess under the current design. I propose making OneSwarm able to read ID3 tags, either while processing searches or as naming input while creating the swarm or both.
[Request] Make OneSwarm ID3 aware(11 posts) (10 voices)
I'd love that! Metadata and tags FTW!
Yes, this would really improve Audio-Shares because I've a lot shares named "CD1" and "CD2" atm and you can't find out what it is until you load it...
+1 on that. And of course it should not be just ID3-aware, but rather metadata-aware.
You could use musicbrainz to correctly tag the data (ensuring that searches come in correctly). It would also throw out the crap, and help increase the amount of found paths to the file (making downloads faster).
There is some id3 functionality in 0.6, it will add "tags" depending on artist and album info in the id3 tag. In addition searches matches the album and artist field as well. And we get mp3 thumbnails from the id3 tag if available.
Will you add metadata support for more formats? Like OGG, JPG, etc...?
maybe it would be cool if there was a music browser function.
As in, the music browser you see in iTunes (and duplicated in Songbird). You could click albums, or artists and then albums and then just see songs under those specifications.

Unlike the guy posting his key in here I would like to give this idea a bump.
What I mostly would like tho is a improved search function with more options (i.e. file type, size etc) currently it feels like searching for stuff is OS weakest link.Posted 2 years ago #
The REAL killer feature would be to ignore the ID3 data completely when sharing so the same original file will have the same hash everywhere even if its tags are modified.
Currently you can't just share your iTunes directory and expect it to work because iTunes can update the tags at any time, incrementing playcount, set ratings and things like that.
If the metadata is distributed separately (but transparent to the user) it will help with availability of songs (blocks) tremendously.Posted 2 years ago #
