Summary0004648: Database won't store track numbers that contain forward slash
DescriptionExpected behavior: MPD database stores track numbers of the format 'XX/XX'

Actual behavior: Such database entries created with older versions of MPD can still be accessed, but editing those entries or adding new entries results in removal of the '/'
Steps To ReproduceIn ncmpcpp 0.7.7, edit the track tag of an mp3 file to include '/' (for example '01/15'). The correct tag will be written to the mp3 file, but an incorrect tag ('1' instead of '01/15') will be stored in the MPD database.
Additional InformationThe disc number tag has the same issue.

I noticed this in version 0.20.4, and another user confirms for 0.20.1:

Another user fails to confirm for 0.19.21:

... So presumably it's an issue with 0.20.
TagsNo tags attached.

cirrus (administrator)

The MPD "track" tag is specified as the track number - which is numeric. The ID3 "track" tag has a different definition, and thus MPD converts the string. This is 100% correct behavior.


chikinn (reporter)

Would you consider adding a config option to preserve the 0.19 behavior?

I'd be happy to open this as a feature request.


cirrus (administrator)

No. But a client can still read the original tags with the "readcomments" command.
