At The Nexus is a great podcast. When I setup the meta-data for the podcast file each week, I adhere to certain convents. The title is compromised of the show name, episode number and the show title. Along with that, I set the genre, year and track number. Well, listener Ian Buck found an intriguing irregularity. He downloaded the latest episode onto his computer and he was greeted with whoever Paul Horn is.
Straight from his comments, Ian shares the discovery:
I discovered the name Paul Horn because I downloaded the podcast to listen to at home; windows claims that the album is “Paul Horn & Nexus” the album artist is “Paul Horn” the contributing artists for this track are “Paul Horn; Paul Horn Nexus” the track number is 4, the year it was released is 1976, and the genre is New Age, and the publisher is Wounded Bird Records.
That, as you can imagine, is unintended. The better illustration is a screenshot of the real ID3-tag meta-data and the strange meta-data Ian’s file somehow obtained. The album art stayed the same, but all the tags changed. Before we began the formal Nexus, our mp3 audio files would randomly get some album art assigned too, but it was VLC causing it, and it was not meta-data affecting. This is different.
Isn’t that odd?
