reading tags

I have:
# Show file titles (title, author, album) instead of file names?
ReadTags = no

im my config file

When i do a "A" (add recurcively to the playlist) everything goes smooth.
When the adding is done I want to save "V" the result in a playlist.m3u, The programs tells me it is "Reading tags..."
and this takes ages!

I told mocp to not read tags!

How can I stop mocp from reading tags?

It is not a big issue.
I appreciate the program very much.
I used mpd for over a decade.
The only problem it has is coping with a large collection of music over the LAN.
I hope moc gives better results.
I guess the tags are the problem with large collections.
I do not use tags whatshowever. I use dir-name ;file-name

Indeed, ReadTags seems to be ignored while saving a playlist. Thanks for reporting this. Also, next time it would be helpful to write down your MOC version / distro you're using.

Will report further to mocmaint.

I use moc 1.2.6 on debian 9 (stretch).

mocp -V

Reading tags... (or total time) also slows detaching occasionally

Without doing more triage, I'd say it's the same underlying issue where MOC is saving the playlist at exit.

Setting SavePlaylist to "no" would avoid that, or maybe clearing the playlist before exitting.
