Adding Metadata Post CD Production
Posted on 2011-04-25
Recently my company ordered about 1,000 audio CD's containing various lectures offered through our seminars. The CD's currently have the title metatag set appropriately, however the audio tracks themselves contain no metadata what so ever aside from the file name being the title.
My problem is that when customers load the CD into iTunes or Windows Media Player, the genre will automatically set to something completely random such as Reagge, and the artist name appears as "Artist"
While we now know for future reference to ensure that the metadata is added initially during production, I wanted to know if there are any common online metadata registries used by iTunes and the other major software companies so that I can upload the appropriate data with them so for the current products we can have users sync the correct information.
Also, is there a way to create a metadata file so that on our website, users can click and download the correct metadata in case they don't use iTunes or other common software.
Thanks very much in advance,
