Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] add a different mp3 column and sort on it

In my version 'Rhythmbox 0.12.8', The comment field does not show up on in the fields available. The comment field correspondingly does show up in the right click menu either.

Does it do so in later versions?

This is actually pretty easy to do in Rhythmbox. To view the comment
field, use Edit→Preferences and enable the “Comment” checkbox. You can
right-click on any track in Rhythmbox and click “Properties” in order to
edit the comment field, and you can create an automatic playlist
(Music→Playlist→New Automatic Playlist…) which supports matching tracks
based on strings in the comment field.

Hope that helps!
