I wanted to know what would be the standard way to implement multiple genres for my files. There seems to be lots of conflicting information everywhere (even including this forum), and it confuses me.
By multiple genres, I mean both multiple main genres as well as subgenres. For example, I may have a song that is labelled as being Metal, Symphonic Metal, Rock and Gothic Rock.
I don't mind if my current music program can't read all the genres (I'm currently using foobar), as long as they're all stored in a standard way that even 10 years down the line, I should be able to access properly. I'd prefer not using hacks or half-solutions or such.
I'm currently using Mp3tag v2.71, and I my collection has all sorts of tags (FLAC, FLAC (ID3v2), ID3v1, ID3v2.2, ID3v2.3, APEv2, etc). If some of those don't support multiple genres, that is fine.
Thanks in advance!
