Amarok 2
Amarok 2.2.90 Most Irritating Bug #228014: File metadata not displayed If File Is Not Present In Collection

Well it’s no secret that I’m a music fan and love to keep my music organized, and neatly tagged. ( Well, if you didn’t - now you do ). I’d posted quite sometime ago on how to keep your music well tagged and organized{#aptureLink_3xJl5k39gE}, so there’s pretty much no way that my files wouldn’t be tagged.

Of course, there exceptions here and there but majority are tagged. So I was rather surpised today when Amarok , during playback wasn’t showing any metadata. To verify - I installed id3v2, a CLI tool to view/edit ID3 tags for mp3 files using zypper and - guess what- it showed the meta data correctly.

I was catching up on some feeds yesterday, and this piece of news caught my eye -Amarok 2.1 released{#aptureLink_chgCx0N0sk}. Being a long time Amarok fan ( heck Amarok itself was catalyst to make me use my SUSE 10.0 use full) time - I read the article with great interest.

Amarok 2 users would know that Amarok 2 series is a shadow of its old Amarok 1.4(“Amarok Classic” self) - and quite a few people still prefer Amarok classic to Amarok 2 - primararily because of Amarok’s missing support for visualizations, equalizer amongst others. I don’t use equalizers - and as for visualization - well don’t use that either.
