You say music videos, so these MP4 files also contain a video stream and not only an audio stream? WMP Tag Plus will detect a video stream and report this to WMP, so I guess that's why WMP classifies it as Video.You could try changing the extension of the files to M4A. I doubt that this will help (as M4A files are probably handled identically to MP4), but it's still worth a try.
Exactly, setting MP4 to FLAC is incorrect and won't work. MPEG4 is the only correct format.I hope you can understand that I really don't like adding options to WMP Tag Plus for edge cases like this, options that most other users don't need and can only confuse them.Note that you can edit tags of MP4 files in the Video library, and that they will be written to the files. It's just the Advanced Tag Editor that isn't available there. The Actors-field is equivalent to the Artist-field in Music.If you really want to have them in Music, I see 2 possible workarounds:- Make sure WMP Tag Plus is disabled while the files are added, and re-enable the plug-in afterwards.- Extract the audio streams to separate AAC files with a tool like YAMB. AAC files will be added to Music.
No, a 64-bit version of WMP Tag Plus currently isn't planned, for reasons I explained earlier. I don't see why you shouldn't be able to play OGG and FLAC in 32-bit WMP, installing the 32-bit version of the DirectShow filters at http://xiph.org/dshow should be enough.
Hi,First I wanted to say thank you for such a useful piece of software. I wanted to know if anybody else was seeing an issue I am running in to. The bulk of my audio files are encoded as Apple Lossless files (ALAC). A few of my files are encoded as AAC. Both sets of files were encoded using iTunes and both sets of files end in .m4a. I am running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. When I add a folder to the WMP library that containes both ALAC and AAC files, only the AAC files show up in the Music library. All of the ALAC files show up under Other Media. Any idea why this would be happening?One other thing I discovered is that if I change an ALAC file's extension from .m4a to mp4, that seems to move it from Other Media to the Music library. I am trying to share a single library of files between WMC and iTunes, so I would like to avoid haing to rename all my ALAC files to .mp4. Any thoughts or suggestions on this?
I was able to add tags to items using WMP itself -- it could see and play the flac titles, but there were no tags, but when I added them manually using WMP the tags stuck. How does that work if WMP Tag was turned off?
For some reason, WMP doesn't seem to pick up album art when it is embedded in the individual files via MP3Tag. I can add manually within WMP, but I did that once today with several titles, and upon restart the art had gone -- perhaps that is because I hadn't closed WMP normally (this was when it crashed). However, I don't understand why the album art is not being picked up in the first place, it IS there.
