Can someone tell me why this is not working for me? I use Windows7 x86 and WMP12.I put flac files in the playlist and can't see the tags, i tried to install and restart the computer and still not working, what do i have to do?
Also, APE is showing the tags and it is supposed this is only compatible with FLAC! Strange!Why APE tags are showing and not FLAC tags?
Also can i add star rating to the FLAC and APE files?

The plug-in should be listed in the Tools - Plug-ins menu, and should have a checkmark next to it.Are the FLAC files in WMP's music library? If they were already in the library before you installed WMP Tag Plus, the files need to be removed from the library and then re-added to let the plug-in read the tags. Select the files, right-click, choose Delete, Delete from library only, and click OK. Then re-add the files, by using Tools - Advanced - Restore deleted library items.QuoteAlso, APE is showing the tags and it is supposed this is only compatible with FLAC! Strange!Why APE tags are showing and not FLAC tags?WMP Tag Plus doesn't support APE (Monkey's Audio), so the tags must have been read by the other tag support plug-in you had installed. The tags keep being stored in the library, even after removing that plug-in (but they could disappear after a while).QuoteAlso can i add star rating to the FLAC and APE files?Sure, just as you would rate any other file in the library. This isn't really related to WMP Tag Plus, because the rating isn't stored in the actual files, only in the library.
When is going to be APE support?
And about the star ratting, why is it not saved on the file? Isn't it supposed to be compatible with Tag writting support for FLAC files? So i have to do it with "external" tools?
Actually, the current WMP Tag Plus version doesn't support WMP's volume levelling tags either.A ReplayGain plug-in for WMP doesn't exist yet, but I might look into writing one myself, if there are enough requests for it.
Musepack support might be added too, but I'm not sure of it, so I can't promise anything. The main problem is that TagLib does support Musepack, but not Monkey's Audio, and that I would really like to have one single handler for APE tags. It would be ideal if there was a library that supports both formats, but that doesn't seem to exist, unfortunately.
I see it in wmp 12, but you are right, it is only in 32bit version, but it allways pop up when i use windows media center (which use only x64 wmp), weird.
Hi there, I use WMP Tag Plus to add FLAC tag support to Windows Media Player. Generally it works fine, but there is a little problem with FLAC tracks grouping. For MP3 files player supports 2 tags: album artist and contributing artist. It comes in handy when the album is a compilation of tracks of different artists, so it is possible to group tracks of the same compilation by the means of album artist tag. I don't know whether it is caused by plugin or the player itself, but FLAC tracks are only grouped in the list of albums:
Good find, it looks like WMP 12 shows all tracks of an album separately if the tracks don't have an Album artist set (in that case, the Album Artist column will show the same value as the Contributing artist column). WMP 11 didn't do this yet. As the issue occurs with MP3 files too, it's probably not directly related to WMP Tag Plus. It can be worked around by setting the same Album artist for all the tracks of the album, or by switching to Details view, in which WMP won't show the tracks separately.
As the issue occurs with MP3 files too, it's probably not directly related to WMP Tag Plus.
