taglib instead of id3lib

    It seems that taglib has more important features, like that: it anderstands meta-information not only id3v2 tags from mp3 (like id3lib), but from ogg (id3 tags and comments) and from flac (comments).

    May be it'll be useful to use it?

      We already have code to read ogg and flac metadata without taglib.

      MiniDLNA actually used to use taglib, but there are several problems there.  (1) It uses C++, which adds a dependency some embedded systems might not want to carry.  The C bindings are also very limited.  (2) It only support album art from ID3v2 tags.  (3) It doesn't support mp4/m4a files.  (4) It doesn't support wma files.
