FLAC is moving from id3 tags to vorbis comments. Could you please add support
for this feature? metaflac is usually used to add these tags.
Logged In: NO
If you pick flac you can use grip "encoder command-line"
options to populate the vorbis_comment fields with id3v2
data, but NOT all. This is bug (incomplete implentation or
documentation) in the grip command (%) switches. There is
no switch for comment field and all the unparsed stuff. I
experimented so that XMMS would have a comment tag, but I
there is no other % switch.
I experimented with:
-V -T TITLE="%n" -T ALBUM="%d" -T TRACKNUMBER="%t" -T
ARTIST="%a" -T COMMENT="" -T CDDB="%i" -T GENRE="%G" -
T DATE="%y" -o %m %w
I modified this from:
Which mentions XMMS parsing of these tags, e.g. "ARTIST=",
but generic comments are undefinded in this thread:
+ ADD_TAG("artist", performer);
+ ADD_TAG("", user_comment); /* "" = user comment
+ /* Also do these without ALL_VORBIS_TAGS in order
+ * existing comments */
So the command line could use comments switch, e.g. %v,
for all data and some polish in getting the specific data
tagged for XMMS.
There's a workaround you can use for now, by using the field
"encoder command-line" in the config, e.g. I use this for
-q 6 -o %m -a "%*a" -t "%*n" -l "%*d" -G "%*G" -c
"DESCRIPTION=Ripped from CD" -N %t -d %y %w
