Ok let’s do this from scratch in case I’m forgetting something or doing something wrong, my brain was a bit foggy last night.
My procedure is as following:
I’m starting Picard
In Preferences -metadata - genres I have enabled:
- use genres from musicbrainz
- fall back on album’s genres
- use folksonomy genres
- minimal genre usage: 100%
- max 4 genres
- divided by “,”
- took this genre list and added it: https://musicbrainz.org/genres
Plugins Last.fm and Wikidata disabled
I add a Folder with lots of different music
I cluster the files
I go lookup or scan - whatever works best
And then I should have the genres from musicbrainz?
Update: Weird, it seems to work. Maybe copy pasting the genres into that blank space in preferences did help. How can I make it add more than one genre?
