Saving Ratings in an MP3 or OGG Audio File in Banshee 2.4.0

I recently upgraded to Banshee 2.4.0 (from a lower version of Banshee--2.3, I believe).

Previously, I had set some options in Banshee such that whenever I change the Ratings (by clicking the number of stars in the bottom right panel which shows the Name of the Song, Artist, etc.), those ratings are saved as a tag inside the MP3 or OGG file.

For example, when I look at the tags for an MP3 or OGG file in a a tag editor like ex falso, it shows something like "banshee:rating" or "rating:banshee". (Can't remember which and not currently able to access such OGG or MP3 files.

In other words, the Ratings were not being stored solely in the banshee .db file. The ratings were in the actual audio file. This was awesome, because it meant that even if I uninstalled banshee or took my files to another computer, banshee could still find the ratings.

These ratings are indeed coming up in the new Banshee 2.4.0. However, new ratings I give to files are not being stored in the OGG or MP3 file.

Very annoying. Suggestions? (I thought maybe a certain option under Preferences would fix this, but I have been unsuccessful in figuring out which one if so.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

(PS--I am going to post a similar but different question in a second asking if there is a general way to store ratings so that any audio application can find them, but that is a different question than this one. This question here is specific to Banshee specifically.)


audio, banshee, mp3, ogg, ratings
