I have recently started using MP3TAG to remove ID3 tags that were inadvertently added to some of my Flac files. I have a couple of questions after reviewing the results.
When viewing the resulting files in MP3TAG the TAG field says FLAC(FLAC), I believe this means there are no more ID3 tags. The Album Artist field is empty. When viewing the same file in a different editor there is an entry in the Album Artist field. Where is this coming from and how do I determine what kind of tag it is?
I understand that I can use MP3TAG to manually (or automatically) make an entry in the Album Artist field. How does MP3TAG store this? Is this a vorbis comment?
Will adding the Album Artist to a Flac file violate any "rule" or "convention"? I am not sure I understand why Flac files are not suppose to have ID3 tags but after searching on this subject that seems to be the case, hence my effort to remove them.
In the MP3TAG options I have ID3V1 deselected in the write box while working on my Flac files. If I want to use MP3TAG for MP3 files I assume I would have to go back into the options and select this?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can clear this up for me.
