I would like to know if its safe to create completely new tag fields?
Right now I use MP3 and FLAC format. Most of tags are used by both formats [and other], but there are some fields "indigenous" to either MP3 or FLAC. So, knowing that I don't use tag that are not mutual. But [for example] I need 3-4 different tag fields for the year [don't ask why]. And to accommodate my needs I'm using of course the YEAR tag and also [for example] PUBLISHER, which in Mp3tag I display using a name like "Year+" [as both the name of the column and the field in tag panel]. And it works; as long as I do not have the need to use the PUBLISHER tag for putting in it the real publishing information
But I was wondering if it is safe to create a new tag field called [for example] YEAR+? The only downside right now that I could think of is that a non-standard tag will not be dispalayed on a LCD panel of a player and maybe some programs will not see it either. But I'm afraid that in time, it would come to my attention, that there is some glitch acting up when dealing with non-standard fields; and as a result my data would be somehow lost or corrupted
Any thoughts on that?
