Hello everyone, and thank you Florian for making this incredible piece of software!
For the past couple of years I have been using Mp3tag to organize my collection which consists mainly of MP3's, and everything has worked perfectly. And now I'm starting to re-rip all of the albums to FLAC using EAC, since disk space is not an issue anymore today.
Most of my collection is very well tagged and now I would like to adjust tag mappings so I can easily import tags to FLAC files and for interoperability between Vorbis and ID3 tags in Mp3tag's interface. Absolutely amazing feature, those tag mappings
I use only ID3v2.3 UTF-16 tags and have customized Tag Panel to show the most important tags and those are the absolute minimum I use for all my albums. Also, I use the id3.org's standard for formatting the frames, such as "/" to separate the names in the Artist field and "#/#" for Discnumber and Track values.
Now, the problem I have with Tag Mapping is that there is no standardization of Vorbis frames and when I import tags they may not work with some applications, and I would hate to change the frames for the whole collection in the future. So I would like to hear your thoughts about the unofficial Vorbis frame names that are most widely used.
These are the most important tags that I now use:
Name in Mp3tag | ID3v2.3 | Vorbis comment | | ALBUM | TALB | ALBUM ALBUMARTIST | TPE2 | ALBUM ARTIST/ALBUMARTIST ??? ARTIST | TPE1 | PERFORMER/ARTIST ??? COMMENT | COMM | COMMENT/DESCRIPTION ??? COMPOSER | TCOM | COMPOSER ??? DISCNUMBER | TPOS | DISCNUMBER/DISC ??? GENRE | TCON | GENRE MEDIATYPE | TMED | SOURCEMEDIA ??? ORIGYEAR | TORY | ORIGINALDATE ??? PUBLISHER | TPUB | PUBLISHER/ORGANIZATION/LABEL ??? TITLE | TIT2 | TITLE TRACK | TRCK | TRACKNUMBER ??? YEAR | TYER | DATE ???
The only ones I'm sure about are the three ones without ??? (album, genre, title). The rest of the Vorbis names I've found in various forums all around the internet.
Also, is there a frame in ID3v2.3 that is used for Catalog Number? At the moment I use Comment for it.
