Hi phred,

I have followed your guide and everything is set up but the link is not clickable in the way that I can directly open the youtube link for instance. I can cut and paste the link of course but that is not what I meant. Please see below what I mean:

I have entered the link of Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody in MusicBee.

https://www.hitnoteringen.nl/hitlijsten/radio-10-top-4000/2021

If would be very nice if the new link field could just show a youtube play icon for instance so you can directly see that the MP3 file has also has a videolink attached and when you click on it it automatically opens youtube.

Looking forward on your thoughts about this.

Thanks Nighthawk_NL

That's not the way it works. You need to have the link displayed in a custom tag so that it becomes clickable. It doesn't show any icons.

If I were to send one of my tracks which has a clickable link tag (embedded) to someone who uses MB, but hasn't set up the custom tab, what would they see?

Obviously if I sent it to someone who doesn't use MB they wouldn't see the link at all, correct?

they can see it in the tag inspector, any mp3 tagging tool or as a tag if they have a custom tag defined with the same name you are using

Hi phred, thanks again for all your help and insights but whatever I do I still can't find a clickable link in MusicBee. Obviously I have missed something but I really don't know what to do to see the clickable link.

Post screenshots of the following making sure to include the new tag in the screenshot:
- Your custom tags configuration from Preferences > Tags1
- Your configure fields configuration from Preferences > Tags2 > fields
- The Tags (2) screen from the tag editor
- The configuration of your track information/details panel

What is the name of your custom tag?
