Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere. I have not used the forums before.
I recently used Picard to mass update the genre tags on my large music library. Unfortunately, the Apple Music app (successor to iTunes) does not recognize the changes.
I first tried unchecking and then rechecking the “Keep Music Media folder organized” option in preferences. This did result in a long process of Music checking the files, but did not result in updated tags.
I then consulted the Musicbrainz iTunes Guide (https://musicbrainz.org/doc/iTunes_Guide).
The “manual method” does work but is not practicable with a library of thousands of albums.
The “brute force method” did not work. The Music app did process the files, but the genre tags were not updated, or at least not consistently. The library is too large to tell if some were updated.
I have not tried the AppleScript method. I do not use AppleScript and am somewhat reluctant to play with it. But if anyone can assure me this will work with the Music app, I’d consider it.
Any suggestions welcome.
