    Default MP3 compare - TXXX fields not always matched

    If a 2 MP3 files have multiple identical TXXX fields they are sometimes not matched when compared. Maybe depending on the order they are written in the tag? e.g.

    Please email the files you are trying to compare to support@scootersoftware.com so we can look into this.

    It is still an open issue in our tracking system. We've had a lot of already scheduled projects taking priority, but we're still aware of this one.

    Another reminder, for next time you're working on MP3 compare

    Instead of User Text (TXXX) = 6.1 (VERSION)

    it should be User Text (TXXX/VERSION) = 6.1

    i.e. the descriptor should be part of the Name, not part of the Value

    Thanks. Our developer in charge of the MP3 Compare hasn't been able to look into this, but we still have all of your documentation and I'll add all notes to our entry on the subject.

    In every one of your tags, is the Descriptor (in this case "VERSION") always unique? Does "VERSION" appear in any other TXXX Tag?

    The multiple TXXX tag issue should be fixed in Beyond Compare 4.2 beta that was released earlier today.
