I'd like it especially in Track Information panel

I'd also appreciate this variable being more available. Especially for auto-playlist creation.

Any file that is not 16 bit will display the bit depth in the track info panel (for the playing track not selected track)
I cant see anything more than that being implemented

Sorry, English is not my native language and maybe I desribed it wrong so I made a picture about what I've asked for:

Steven's saying he won't implement it. This has been discussed several times.

But you could make a custom tag and implement it yourself :)

Actually, I'm using Mp3tag to write the bit depth tag, but as MB is already reading this to the database:


If we had access to that 'read-only' tag than you could use a virtual tag like:
Code
$If($Contains(<Type>,", ")=T,$Split(<Type>,", ",2),)
to use just the bit depth.

I was unaware of that, thanks!  Bit depth over 16 is indeed shown in the Track Information panel of "Playing Tracks" when "Show track properties" is checked (there being no "tag" value for that in the custom display fields).  In the "Now Playing" panel layout configuration, the "Show track properties" check box does not exist for the Track Information panel, which explains why it does not display there.  If I had more 24-bit material I would have spotted it earlier :-[

@ Steven
So it's highly unlikely that you will do this?

Its not stored in the database. Its retrieved from the music file when viewed in the properties tab of the tag editor and also for the track info panel playing track

Ah-hah!
That fills in the gaps in the information  ;)
I'll continue with the custom tag work'round

As this has come up quite often, i have now added database support for bit depth.
The value will be automatically saved for new files, but for your existing files, you will need to rescan them (right click/ Send To/ Rescan Files)
The new "Bit Depth" field can be displayed, sorted, filtered as any field
