Hey all,Have a question: You know, why Ogg Vorbis files need so long to Tag or to rename with tag?mp3s are average. Mpc really go fast but Oggs are so lame Thats the only disadvantage of this format.thanx, Duke
Ogg comment header is located at the beginning of the file, editing it with vorbis libraries means that whole file must be rewritten with new contents. On a 3MB file this means that about 16000 times more bytes must be written compared to tags that are located at the end of file.
-p, --padding n Number of kilobytes of padding to provide in comment header for post-encoding tagging. (0 - 4 permitted)
What about having it defult to 0.25? Would this be a problum? Can it take a decimal value?thanks in advance
How about I make it units of 128bytes upto a maximum of 5kb? Does anyone have any other ideas about this?
Disadvantage: If for some reason the transfer is interupted, you cannot tell by the tags if the file has been interupted. This is the case for mp3s and id3v1 - a quick look at the tags of an album and you can spot the incomplete tracks immediately.
If ogg ever takes the big step into the file sharing programs and/or Usenet, there are one advantage and one disadvantage with the tagging system.Disadvantage: If for some reason the transfer is interupted, you cannot tell by the tags if the file has been interupted. This is the case for mp3s and id3v1 - a quick look at the tags of an album and you can spot the incomplete tracks immediately.Advantage: You actually get the tags even if the transfer is interupted.So with this in mind, I'd prefer both id3v1 and id3v2x in mp3's published on the Internet. But that might just be me.
John33, is there any program out there that can add padding to an already encoded file ?
Metadata isn't "designed to be changed". I write my metadata once on average.
