  1. Unable to change song "title" and Virtual DJ displays songs no title as "blank"


    Virtual DJ can read all my songs from iTunes except certain songs. These songs are different in Windows File Explorer. Most of my songs have the name column and title column filled out, and they are either exactly the same or similar. The problem songs have a name but do not have a title. So iTunes shows this name but Virtual DJ only shows the blank title. I can't edit the title field in iTunes, Virtual DJ, or File explorer.



    I found this related question but my iTunes XML file doesn't have format="%Artist" and format="%title".



    https://www.virtualdj.com/forums/203949/VirtualDJ_Skins/Display__file_name__instead_of__title__.html



    I have been in a 20+ email thread with virtual DJ support and all it has created is growing frustration.



    This is what my XML file has:



    <key>Name</key><string>Sexyback</string>

    <key>Artist</key><string>Justin Timberlake</string>

    <key>Album Artist</key><string>Various Artists</string>

    <key>Composer</key><string>Danjahandz/Timbaland/Justin Timberlake</string>

    <key>Album</key><string>2007 Grammy Nominees</string>

    <key>Genre</key><string>Pop</string>

    <key>Kind</key><string>AAC audio file</string>



    I wondered if I could drag my songs in file explorer to Virtual DJ without iTunes but that still won't work because the song simply has no title.



    Let me know if you have a method to resolve. Thank you!

    :)

  2. no song titles on burned cd

    HI Jaja,

    Are you burning your discs as data or music discs? If you burn it as a music disc, you will get no song title but you will be able to play the music in any CD player. If you burn it as a data disc (and the songs are in *.mp3 format) you will get the song titles burned on the disc as well. The only problem with that is that the cd will only play in players that will play the *.mp3 format.

    Hope that helps!

    Windows Media Player Song Title Alpha Order Bug possible workaround

    I use Windows Media Player to maintain my library of music on the computer. Usually, when I open an Artist, all of the songs are listed within the album from which it comes. So first is Album A with all of its songs, then Album B etc.

    Often, I'll want to list all of those same songs within an Artist by Song title. This will sort all of the titles that start with "A" first, "B" second, etc. and show a very small jpeg of the album cover on the left. This view allows for quick audio comparisons of the same song from different sources. This is where you can hear one iteration of a song being louder or better quality or worse mastering than another - a helpful use of this software.

    OK, so what's the bug? Occasionally and unpredictably, the alpha-by-song list will separate out widely, listing the first song with a large jpeg of the cover art. Then a second song will appear with its large jpeg cover art, all of this using up a lot of screen real estate. It can still be used, but it's ugly to look at. It has been maddening that some artists are separated out like this, while most list nice and tight, line by line.

    Today, I might have uncovered the reason that it happens. I think it has to do with apostrophes in the last title in the alphabetical list. If you can somehow change the title of that song so that it's not last, your list will show tight lines, the way its supposed to be.

    I realize that this is a very specialized use of Windows Media Player, but maybe it will help out someone out there.
