Scanmode Metadata: FMPEG native vs. mixed ?

Unread postby Matt Zornig » 20 Feb 2017, 22:05

Hi,
for me, the shown tooltip is nebulous and its unclear to me, what effect this setting will have.

What are the advantages of FFMPEG against the internal library, if ?

What exactly does "Better results" mean ?

What kind of metadata are we talkin about? Is it visible webgui metadata or technical background metadata?

Scanmode: NATIVE

Use only the fast internal jaudiotagger library, which doesn't support newer file formats like:

aac, aiff, dff, dsf, opus, ogg, flac, mod, mid, it, s3m, xm


Scanmode: MIXED

Use also the external tool FFMPEG for parsing, like the contentlength and media metadata (title, artist, ...).

But this mode take more read operations on the filesystem and a larger memory footprint while scanning.

That little word 'also' made it clearer to me. So FFMPEG is used additionally to jaudiotagger, when selecting MIXED.
