With the advancement of tags (and here and here), I’ve been thinking about new ways to use them. The best use I have thought about came about through Dave and my quest to sort our Mp3’s into a meaningful mess. Tags could easily solve the majority of our genre woes.
I have thought about using them in the grouping or comment section id3 tag and then by using smart playlists and the “contains” rule I can create the playlist I want. The problem starts when you want to edit the tag, you can’t mass edit the tags if there is something already in them, it erases the tag.
The simplest problems can always be the hardest to fix.
