I'm a native Hebrew speaker and have a lot of Hebrew music on my
library. Unfortunately I can play only a tiny part of it with Muine
since all of my Hebrew MP3s aren't displayed correctly. OGG files are
okay, as you said.
First thing I'd like to say that I've been tagging some of Hebrew
files with EasyTag to change small things as track number, year and
such, without touching the title or artist tag. As far as I can
remember, it didn't ruin the Hebrew tags I had (and Muine couldn't
read), it just changed those certain fields I have changed.
I hope I'm not wrong since I have ran EasyTag over my whole Music
Library over the last night, so I'll check its results when I'll get
Second thing - are you saying that I could use eyeD3 to tag my Hebrew
music and get it displayed correctly in Muine?
Edit - I've just tried eye3D and it gives me error when trying to
write Hebrew tags. Oh well.
