Is there a “better” genre updating method?
Also, I’m confused about proper methodology and compatibility?
I noticed that Picard puts ALL the genres into ONE Genre Tag…
However, when I use Mp3tag and then “save” the file, if I use double backward slashes (\) to separate the genre the file is saved with multiple Genre Tags, and most programs apparently only see the “first” genre, such as Windows File Explorer.
So, I don’t understand what “separators” I should be using, including what ones I should be using in other tags that have multiple artists etc. which seem to mostly be using a forward slash / or sometimes a semi-colon ; .
Also, if I use for example the semi-colon ( or otherwise, Mp3tag apparently respects what’s used and keeps all genres in one Tag.
Anyway, I’m confused as donkey… I want to use a consistent methodology, and one that will work in most players properly. I don’t actually “need” to see multiple genres either by a player, at least not yet, likely something I’ll need to also cleanup, cause there are lots of mistakes in the genres.
