Hello.

For some reason Dopus is not showing m4a tags in metadata pane, but it obviously reads them from the file.

At first I thought that it is normal, and Directory Opus just doesn't support m4a files but after checking ogg flac and ape files I am starting to think that something is wrong.

Could you please help?

P.S. I have uploaded a sample file so that you could check it yourself.

I haven't changed from the default Info Tip and it doesn't show tags by default.

Go to Settings -> File Types...

Expand File Type Groups and highlight Music, and then click Edit.

Switch to the Info Tip tab and configure it how you want.

You'll find what you want when you click Insert Field and choose General -> Tags.

I hope this helps.

I appreciate your help, but I doubt that it will solve my problem. My Info Tip works fine, there is something wrong with the Metadata Pane.
For example that is how it looks with flac file selected.

As you can see in case of flac(and ogg and mp3 and ape and so on, except m4a) Metadata Pane shows all the tags.

I think the problem is on our side rather than your config. If you rename to .mp4 you can edit some of their fields (albeit focused on video not audio), so we may have just missed the m4a extension somewhere.

[BTW, if you get the version of that album that's now on the band's website, it's much improved from the original clipped CD release. (Still clipped in places, but no longer clipped absolutely everywhere. At least for the FLAC/24/96 version I opted for.) They finally fixed it, and very quietly.]

Indeed, I tried a fresh install of Dopus on clean Windows 7 on virtual machine, and it has similar behavior. For the sake of consistency I did a proper testing of other audio formats supported by Audio Tags plugin except .m4p because I don't have any and iTunes Store nowadays seems to sell only DRM free music. I found that the same issue happens with .opus .m4a .aac and .fla files, in other word Directory Opus reads tag data from them without a problem but it is unable to display it in Metadata Pane.

I would be grateful if you would fix it, especially m4a files, because they are pretty common among the people who use apple devices. Also I encountered another thing that might be a bug. A green rectangle is displayed instead of .wav thumbnail, Explorer seems to handle .wav thumbnails fine(with the help of Icaros).

I have uploaded 7zip archive with this .wav file.

I'd appreciate if you could look into this issue as well.

Thanks for the information. :thumbsup: This remaster will be a nice addition to my collection of different versions of Death Magnetic(I already have this particular CD, remastered version that I bought at the iTunes Store(they cleaned it a lot and added some bass), and another remastered version of unknown origin). :lol: But, strange as it may sound, the more I listen to the remastered versions of this album the more I like the original release. Yea it has dirty sound, but it gives more of the "impact" with all its raspy and overloaded riffs IMHO. :)
