AudioCD. Previous weeks report.

There two new things that can be noticed by user have appeared in Amarok during this period.

Now user can switch between available metadata sources (CDDB and CD-Text currently). It can be done by clicking on the collection and then choosing Collection:

 and there you can find this two new actions: "Use CDDB Metadata" and ''Use CD-TEXT Metadata":

Previously I've showed cases when it is useful. As a reminder: for example when metadata is presented in both CDDB and CDTEXT, it is possible that correct encoding for the metadata has been guessed only for one source, so it is simpler just to switch between different sources, instead of trying to find correct encoding.

But if you want to try your luck in encodings guessing, this option is available to you now. Just choose "Select Encoding" in AudioCD Collection actions and Encoding Selection dialogue with list of guessed encodings and sample text will appear:

  1. I'd like to change the label in the blue header that says "AudioCd" to be "Audio CD". That small thing has been bugging me forever. I know AudioCd is a coding symbol name but it looks so awkward to my eyes for a user-facing description. How do I go about making that change? Bug report?
