Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Problem with encoding of mp3 tags

As far as I know, cp1251 isn't an encoding supported by id3 tags, the
best thing to do would probably to convert your tags to using id3v2 tags

Automatically, using a special function in the UI?

not quite correctly, but very usefully ;)

he has a convert-non-utf8-tags-to-utf8-with-the-following-encoding:


so, imho he tries to interpret the tag data as utf8, and if it fails, he uses the encoding specified.

of course that's not that much correct, because: id3v2.3: latin1 or utf-16 id3v2.4: + utf8

so below 2.4 you cannot use utf8....

btw. you mentioned to convert the tags...

is there ANY tagger on linux that supports the unicode aspects of id3v2 (read: is able to save non-latin1 data into the tags using utf-16?)
