Search by genre
Posted 15 June 2011 - 12:15 AM
Just some things to consider

... I also don't think that having the tags would necessarily limit people to only 1 genre...
yeah, i dont see this limiting people, not on a regular basis anyway. one night might be a certain genre tag but a week later i may browse by game, or artist or any number of things. i like to think of my music in terms of cravings and consumption, sometimes ill eat just about anything but some days i NEED that cheeseburger!
and sweet, thanks for the link liontamer

Click the link Larry posted. There's been some genre tags in place for some time now.
Haha, yeah I clicked on the link after I posted that XD
But yeah tbh the tags are really crap right now...I'm glad it's being worked on, but the way it is right now it's more or less unusable

It would be easy to add an option to search for music in categories like metal, rock, piano, symphony, harmonic etc. Then you can find all piano tracks in a few clicks.
Disadvantage would be now that all other oploaded mp3's have to be edited..
So I'm not sure if it's a good idea, however maybe there is a work around?

We'll eventually end up better integrating this into our site database (i.e. not just show on the forums), but we've already been working on it for quite a while now.
In the works. :-)

There is however a tagging system going on that works a better for OCR, so you can tag remixes with guitar, or chiptune etc without clumsy genre shoving. I don't know too much about it, hopefully someone else will chip in.

That's my first time using the forum of OCR! This page is just beyond epicness, but I don't have to tell you guys
The whole website is great... Did David or who ever manages this page ever thought about adding genre information to all the remixes?
At the moment, I can search and list for game titles, artist names and album titles... But It would a very good tool if you could filter all remixes by genres for example: rock-, electro-, chip tune or orchestral-remixes.
For example my self, I'm a big instrumental rock and metal remixes fan and its VERY hard to find songs in this style because you have ten thousand of remixes all over and for me... it's to hard. so because of that I'm maybe not the best visitor of ocremix.org although the page is beyond epicness...
I know it is ALOT of work to add this additional information to all songs, but maybe you can add it just on the new incomings? and adding the information to the old songs, step by step...
Or I'm the only one who need this? :S

You could try to use this off-site resource to create playlists and work out of those. I gave it a quick try with an artist-sorted iTunes library, which didn't work. They playlist can be drag-n-dropped or otherwise imported into iTunes, but ends up empty.
The playlist file is just a list of the filenames for the tracks. Dunno how up to date it is, at what stage the tagging project is, if iTunes or more recent naming conventions screw with the filenames, or it can be conveniently converted to something that takes different music library organization schemes into account.
Or perhaps importing the m3u from a directory full of shortcuts to the files works?

As I recall, this was discussed in the past... I'll see if I can find the thread and link it to you (although it might be somewhere in the Ask a Judge thread).
EDIT: Found it: http://ocremix.org/f...highlight=genre
thank you for answering!
ouch, 18 pages :S I go throught the thread and the answer is their is no need for, you can ask the forum members? :S that is definitely not a good solution : /
Thanks for answering
I actually don't understand what you writting about but sorting by artists is not very helpful i think :S
Thanks for answering
Are all remixes in this forum?? your just the discussed ones?
btw I do know a thread for searching of Genre, to test that solution...

While on this topic, iTunes seem to wanna sort ocr tracks with the new id3 tags into a single itunes media/music/compilations/http___ocremix.org (on mac). Once the entire ocr database is updated and ppl use files with the new tags, a script that does this could probably be added to Kieran's thing. Or ppl could just open the m3u files and search&replace all new lines with new line and whatever parts of the locator are needed.
idunno, Larry, Dave, Kieran, whoever.
