Topic: Keys not being read in FLAC files
I decided to revisit VDJ after using other software for a number of years. It's great, but I'm having one major issue which will stop me from switching...

I used Mixed in Key to analyse my tracks, and VDJ reads the tags fine on the MP3 files. However, for all my FLAC files, VDJ will not read the key from the tag, and just displays it's own analysis. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

p.s. I do have the use key from tags setting enabled.

yeah there's a issue with flac

VDJ reads initialkey
the default for flac is KEY

if you have both VDJ seems to not read either for me

so just remove the KEY tags in something like MP3tag program and write only initiatlkey to the files in mixedinkey

If there are both KEY and INITIALKEY, vdj will use KEY actually.

was that corrected in a recent build because if i have both it reads neither?

i haven't tested it lately because i just make sure i don't have the key tags for a long time now

Thank you! That's done the trick.
