Identifying Music Media Using Embedded Metadata

Some applications embed metadata in the music files, generally as an ID3 or M4A tag. If your music files have embedded data you'd like to use, you can:

  1. Ensure "Local Media Assets" has been enabled for the Agent you're using in your music Library
  2. Make sure that "Local Media Assets" is at the top of the Agents list
  3. When creating or editing the music library, ensure that the Use embedded tags advanced option is enabled
