User custom tags adding feature

I'm new here so Hello everyone!

Here is my concept (didn't find it on the forums):

Ability for user to add tags to mp3s - but not standard tags like author, title, album etc. but custom - that would describe each song - for example tags like black, gloomy, noisy - and then in media library songs could be searched by
those tags.

This could look like tagging on last.fm - but on last.fm it is pretty messy when everyone adds different tag so the song has 100 tags - pizza is being done there and nothing can be found.

Adding tags by user to his own mp3s and by himself is sth different I think. Tags of course could be glued to mp3 or to winamp and user's pc.

I think this is a nice way to personalize mp3s and also organize them in very custom way - not only by built-in mp3's tags.

Best regards
Mac

comment are not considered during search in ML.

And genre is genre - if I use genre for custom tags then... I don't have genre tag.

True if you just type a string in the search box, but

?comment has "mystring"

works just fine. Use it all the time. You can even create a view based on such a query.

User-defined tags

It is so difficult to allow winamp users to show their specific tags?
I see a lot of effort put in every new version just for skin which is nice to have but not essential. Why not putting some effort for such a feature?
Standard tags are not covering (all) user requirements.
Comment field is just a comment field and shouldn't be used as a container of non-standard tags. I cannot deal with comment field. If so why using tags at all? We could put everything in comment field and then would spend the rest of our life creating STUPID queries.
It is pity such a feature it is not ready yet.
We don't want a reconstruction of winamp skin, we don't want to search automatically for lyrics, we don't want spell check in tags, we just want this option.

Be the first player offering the full support of user-defined tags. Let the others see your back.
Support of multivalued tags would be appreciated too.

Thank you so much.
Victor
