Music metadata is information embedded in an audio file that is used to identify the content. This information will help you to easily navigate your digital music library.
The type of information included within metadata can vary depending on what has been submitted by the record label/musician/publisher, but common examples of information included within metadata are:
- Song Title
- Album Name
- Track Number
- Artist Name
- Year of Release
If you copy music from a CD to your server or download a track from online stores such as iTunes; the music files will come with metadata already embedded within them. When using a NAS Drive connected to a Network Player, the metadata will be used to correctly order and display your digital music library. Information such as the song title, artist name, album name etc. can then be viewed on the front panel of your player or the Connect app.
It is possible to edit or add to the existing metadata in your music files by using programmes such as Mp3Tag or media players such as iTunes or Windows Media Player.
