Author Topic: MB won't update ratings tag in .flac files  (Read 473 times)

I have the 'store ratings in the music file' ticked, and yet if I make changes to the ratings in MB, the rating does not show in Tag & Rename, which I have been using to work with tags in my library.
My entire music library is stored on my local system in .flac format.
If I make changes to ratings in T&R, then do a re-scan in MB, the changes are updated in MB, but not the other way around.
As a matter of fact, if I change the ratings in MB, the rating in T&R disappears, leaving the track with no rating.
This behavior appears to affect only the ratings tag, as I can change other tags (such as title) in MB, and the changes will reflect in T&R.

I will do some more digging and see what I can find, but in the meantime, has anyone had this experience when using MB and another app for tagging flac files?

Thanks for your help

Did you find out your issue?

Similarly, I see that MB won't save ratings to ALAC files (but will for MP3)...

I have never had issues with (album) ratings not being stored in FLAC files.
I use mp3tag, not Tag & Rename, but I need to reload the files in mp3tag if I make anything changes to them prior in MusicBee.
