#7969 closed defect (wontfix)

Flac tracknumber is incorrectly identified

Reported by: rayden Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avformat
Version: git-master Keywords: flac metadata
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug: track number is shown incorrectly for flac files. ffprobe shows tracknumber as track (lowercase), and track as TRACK (uppercase). Only using metaflac I realised the tags were different

How to reproduce:
Grab a good flac file, and then run:

$ ffprobe '02 - Angelica.flac'
Input #0, flac, from '02 - Angelica.flac':
Metadata:
ALBUM : Eternity [Peaceville Records-Pony Canyon Inc PCCY-01050]
TRACKTOTAL : 15
ARTIST : Anathema
PERFORMER : Anathema
GENRE : "Doom metal"
DATE : 1996
TITLE : Angelica
track : 02
Duration: 00:05:50.40, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 809 kb/s
Stream #0:0: Audio: flac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16


$ metaflac --list '02 - Angelica.flac'
...
METADATA block #2
  type: 4 (VORBIS_COMMENT)
  is last: false
  length: 233
  vendor string: reference libFLAC 1.3.2 20170101
  comments: 8
    comment[0]: ALBUM=Eternity [Peaceville Records-Pony Canyon Inc PCCY-01050]
    comment[1]: TRACKNUMBER=02
    comment[2]: TRACKTOTAL=15
    comment[3]: ARTIST=Anathema
    comment[4]: PERFORMER=Anathema
    comment[5]: GENRE=Doom Metal
    comment[6]: DATE=1996
    comment[7]: TITLE=Angelica

Tracknumber is the correct tag that players use to identify, hence the following example is just for the purpose of showing the differences:

$ metaflac --set-tag=track=02 '02 - Angelica.flac'
$ ffprobe -fflags +bitexact 02\ -\ Angelica.flac
Input #0, flac, from '02 - Angelica.flac':
  Metadata:
    ALBUM           : Eternity [Peaceville Records-Pony Canyon Inc PCCY-01050]
    TITLE           : Angelica
    TRACKTOTAL      : 15
    ARTIST          : Anathema
    PERFORMER       : Anathema
    GENRE           : Doom Metal
    DATE            : 1996
    TRACK           : 02
  Duration: 00:05:50.40, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 809 kb/s
    Stream #0:0: Audio: flac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16

This is very confusing and I think the tracknumber should show as TRACKNUMBER (uppercase).
It took me a good while initially to understand why the tags on my flac album were not being set correctly, and that was because I was using track as ffprobe was showing it.

For future tickets: Please remember that only current FFmpeg git head is supported here.
track is how FFmpeg calls the tag in question.
