MetaFLAC: Failed to write tags

Post by sjoerdstaal » Thu Apr 28, 2016 2:06 pm

When I'm trying to write
Failed to write tags!
WriteMetaFLAC() failed with message(s):
System call to metaflac failed with this message returned: sh: metaflac: command not found
But when I'm running the following command in Terminal it works..

Code: Select all

metaflac --no-utf8-convert --remove-all-tags --import-tags-from='getID3n9bjfX' '01_Shostakovich cello concerto no 1-Allegretto.flac'
What is going wrong?

Whatever user getID3 is running as either doesn't know where or doesn't have access to metaflac. Perhaps if you specify an absolute filename for metaflac in write.metaflac.php line 84 it will find it?
