I have tested the following:
as soon as I make a change to a FLAC-file (audio or tags) within WL7 and save the file subsequently,
some file attributes - Metatags are lost.
I have pictures included in the FLAC Metadata, referenced as “Album Art”, after saving in WL, the pictures disappear.
Is this a bug PG?
A further issue with FLAC files is:
when I add a new field (e.g. fieldname=“NewField”, content= “Test”) to the FLAC Metatags (e.g. within foobar2000) which is common practice for FLAC files, WL is not able anymore to open the FLAC file.
The error message is “The file cannot be opened. The format is unknown or WaveLab could not find a suitable decoder on your system”.
BTW, WL7 does not allow either to add new fields to FLAC Metatags.
Is this in contradiction with FLAC Metatag (“Vorbis comments”) definition
Any tag name is allowed, and there is no format that the data values must be in. This is in contrast to the ID3 format used for MP3s, which is highly structured. Field names are also permitted to be used more than once. It is encouraged to use this feature to support multiple values, for example two ARTIST=… fields to list both artists of a single composition.
