This question was prompted by me discovering I have an indeterminate chunk of five-second-long mp3s in my collection that bugged out during FLAC conversion and I failed to notice during my last organization because Picard for some reason weights title matching much more heavily in its color-flagging than any other factor, even duration.
For instance if there is a long 15-minute prog song with a title like “Hoity-Toity Suite: A) Overture B) Pretension C) The Shibboleths of Eta Carinae D) …” I will shorten it to the first title and Picard will show a light green or even yellow card sometimes on that basis, even if everything else matches, and so I tended to ignore them and only check the orange/red stuff. However a version of that song with the proper full title but an absurdly short duration due to file corruption often gets a much better percentage match.
Here is an example I just tested. The version of Track 6 with the shortened title gets a yellow card. The version of Track 6 that I truncated to four seconds in Audacity to simulate corruption only gets a light green card (it’s not visible in the screenshots since I have it highlighted but the background color is even fainter than the other light green cards issued for shortened titles).
I completely understand not weighting duration very heavily when it’s a few seconds of difference, especially in the case of vinyl/tape rips. But is there any way I can get it to just automatically red-flag anything where the duration falls short by more than 30 secs?
