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.
thought there’s no need to open a new thread concerning flacs…
i converted a wav-file using wavelab and dbpoweramp. as the size of the flac files are different, i’d like to know (guess it’s the metatags which are different) what metatags, or file-headers being written by wavelab and dbpoweramp or how they differ?
dbpoweramp or the properties window of windows are showing the same metatag informations.
so where lies the difference?
the size of the flacs vary around 100kb…
dbpoweramp v14 uses flac 1.2.1…
both wavelab and dbpoweramp compressing with level 5 and using flac version 1.2.1 should poduce the same filesize, i guess.
but it’s not.
why the differences?
no big thing as the decompressed wavs are of same size, but there has to be a reason for that…
i did some comparison with foobar2000. both flac-files, either compressed with dbpoweramp or wavelab, show no id-tags but the same metatags including the same audio md5.
although i did not found a seek table in the with dbpoweramp compressed file, it might add up to the difference…
some ID tags are lost also when a WAV file is processed with the Batch Processor: namely Track Number and Album Name. My input WAV files have these attributes filled for sure, but there is no Track and no Album filled in the output files, although most of the tags (Title, Artist, Year, etc.) are kept correctly. I’m speaking about WL 7.1.1.

I can’t reproduce this. Are you sure yo are using this option?..
What software created the file with these tags, WaveLab?
