#30 Track number tags missing


When importing ogg files into iTunes, the track number and total
number of tracks are not read from the ogg file (they show up as

    It would also appear that the year tag is missing even
    though it is in the Ogg file. I'm using 1.0d8 with iTunes 4.6.

    I was just about to comment on this, but saw that it was
    already a reported bug. I thought that I would add (just for
    clarification) that this _is_ happening. I have confirmed
    that ogg files with the 'tracknumber' comment field declared
    still show a blank under the track number listing in iTunes.
    I do not know, however, know whether the maxtrack field was
    _ever_ a tag of the mp3 (which I am accustomed to dealing
    with) or if iTunes interprets it when multiple tracks are
    imported at once.

    In any case, it would be nice to see this taken care of. I
    would like to re-rip my music library to the ogg format, but
    if iTunes doesn't know the track numbers, it just makes me
    feel dirty. ;)

    I've read elsewhere that this is actually an iTunes bug. If
    you open a Vorbis file in QuickTime Player, then press
    Command-J to open the Movie Properties window, you'll see
    that QuickTime does indeed see the Track Number annotation.
    It's just that iTunes never asks for it.

    i also get this... it is so annoying that it almost makes the ogg support
    unusable. i seem to be able to see track numbers if i use a new id3tag, so
    i'm seeing about reparsing all my ogg files on the CL to see if that fixes it.

    at the very least there should be a hack to fix this if no elegant solution

    I should mention, I would use iTunes if it weren't for this
    bug, I'm almost sure. The only other ogg problem is the
    slight delays with ogg files, but I can live with that.

    This bug prevents me from playing albums (most of my albums
    are ogg), which makes iTunes almost useless to me.
