There is certainly some indirection, but I don't think it is via folder.jpg Otherwise different tracks in the same folder would show the same cover art -- which is not the observed case.
I still have no time length tags imported from the musepack tunes.I also noted that the "Album Artist" tag is not imported (I tried both with "compilation" tag set top 1 or left empty).
If that doesn't help, how were these files created? Would it be possible to upload one of these files through something like http://www.yousendit.com, and PM me the download link? Thanks!
Thank you for uploading the file. By looking at the file's tags, I see that it has been created by MAGIX Samplitude. Is this correct?TagLib, the tagging library that WMP Tag Plus uses, also returns a track length of zero. This probably points to a bug in TagLib which might be related to the Musepack SV8 format. I have filed a bug].
Ratings are never read by WMP Tag Plus. This is by design, as rating is something personal that should not be stored in music files. WMP Tag Plus currently doesn't read Compilation either.
Album artist isn't read because WMP Tag Plus looks for an ALBUM ARTIST tag, while the file you uploaded contains ALBUMARTIST (without the space). (...) I might add support for the name without space as well in a future version - as is currently already the case for FLAC/Vorbis tags.
If that doesn't help then please create a new thread at Hydrogenaudio or in the Windows 7 Media forum, as this is unrelated to WMP Tag Plus.
The question isn't related to M4A files either, because there the library classification depends on the format of the audio stream within the file. While for AIFF, WMP is probably just set to classify that file extension as Other Media.
To change this setting, you could try adding the .aiff extension on the Extensions tab of WMP Tag Plus settings and restarting WMP (it doesn't matter which tag format you select - it will be ignored anyway).

Hi there. I have installed WMP Tag Plus 2.1 and the MONOGRAM Musepack DirectShow Decoder v0.9.2.0 / Splitter v0.4.0.0. WMP plays mpc files but it does not show the playback progress and I can't seek mpc files. Does anyone know why? WIndows 7 x64 SP1, fully updated.also WMP does not show Metadata fields for APE files converted with foobar2000... Maybe it doesn't support some tagging schemes like APE or ID3v1?
Notwithstanding the OT nature of my question, could you please explain what you do in WMP Tag Plus to persuade WMP12 that M4A files with ALAC payloads shall be classified as Music rather than Other Media?
Does the scan pick up these MPC/APE songs and are the issues fixed after the songs' tags have been refreshed?
Are the MPC files perhaps in the (newer) Musepack SV8 format? You can check this with Mp3tag. WMP Tag Plus relies on TagLib, which currently only supports the SV7 format. See here for the corresponding TagLib bug report.How exactly did you generate the APE files with foobar2000? I don't see any built-in support for converting to APE and could only find a Monkey's Audio decoder.
WMP Tag Plus hooks into WMP's retrieval of this property, and when it sees the ALAC GUID being returned, it replaces it by the AAC GUID, thereby 'fooling' WMP into thinking that it's handling an AAC M4A file.

The only thing that does appear in WMP is the song length of the files.If you check the files with Mp3tag then you shouldn't see any tags there either.
Foobar2000 certainly didn't do that in my test, so please check with Mp3tag.
Please try re-adding the APE files to the library. Make sure that WMP Tag Plus is checked in Tools - Plug-ins, select the files in the library, right-click, Delete - Delete from library only - OK. Then go to Tools - Advanced and select Restore deleted library items.If that doesn't help, would it be possible to upload one of these files through something like http://www.yousendit.com, and PM me the download link? Thanks!
