Has anyone else noticed the absence of the Advanced Tag Editor from Windows Media Player 11?  It has been a staple of Windows Media Player for a long time but it seems to be gone from this new beta version.  At least I can’t seem to find it.  The Editor was invaluable to me as a podcaster for setting all the audio file ID3 tags properly but not anymore.  Oh well.

  1. It’s there, for me at least. All I have to do is right click on an individual song and it is in the menu.

  2. You’re right, it’s on the right-click menu if the library after a file has been added to the library. You used to be able to access from the right pane when a song not added to the library was playing. That option is now gone, as near as I can tell.

  3. Yeah, i depends on where you right-click in the views.

    But one thing I love about this, in the view by album, you can just right click on the album/genre etc and edit, without bringing up the whole advanced editor. Maybe it was there before, but just not as intuitive. Still, seems pretty good.

    The critical issue for me is that it still doesn’t support the ipod. For this reason, i still have to use iTunes. Since I can just use ID3 tags through Windows Media Connect to the X360, I’ve been leanng towards using iTunes for my music library and WMP for playing videos (no library really).

    I’ve been thinking about writing a plugin for awhile but it’s been so far down the list of priorities. I’m still amazed someone didn’t write an iPod provider yet.

  4. i am having serious problems with the advanced tag editor in WMA11. When I change album info on a track (I like to add old B-sides to the album where the A-side resides), the program does not add the track to the same album folder. it is left stray, in its own folder. In WMA10 you could drag and drop files and all would be fine. here there is no drag and drop..am i missing something?

  5. It’s really sad it’s no longer possible to edit information for the song that is not in the media library. I cannot see a good justification for such a feature cut. I’m disgusted.

  6. do you think that windows will provide an update that’ll allow us to edit tags again? this is freakin’ ridiculous!

  7. There is an advance tag editor.
    Go to library, then on the song not the album cover, the song and you right click it and it should say advance tag editor

    I think they already know that. i for 1 just wanna know if someone has made a script or a hack/crack to put advanced tag editor back into the now playing window… how am i ment to correct all songs on a cd’s names if media player sorts all of em as different albums!!!!!

    im never gonna be able to clean my 2500 songs again!

  9. “You’re right, it’s on the right-click menu if the library after a file has been added to the library.”

    jk: Can you please explain what this sentence means?

    First click on Library.

    Then what?

    Select a file and click File/Add to library?

    I did that and then right-clicked on that file and still did not see “advanced tag editor.”

    Please explain.

    Thanks, Jimmu
