a. Comp Restart hangs, until Task Manager\AlarmClock.exe\End Process is done.
One last question, is Tag Plus! as complete and up to date as the full WMP Tag Plus! app?
Not all the text on the options screen are screenreader friendly.
What I want to do is rip compilation CDs and then re-tag each track with its original artist/album/track number etc.
The reason is WMP inserts a CD TOC (Table of Contents) in the tag for each track it rips, which not only allows it to permanently "remember" which CD each track was originally ripped from but also links all the ripped tracks together in the database.
The only way to stop WMP from being able to recall the original track source is to remove the TOC tag, which is not something you can do within WMP itself. You'll have to use a 3rd party tag editor (I recommend Mp3tag) to completely strip the file(s) of all tags.
Another option (that will preserve all normal tags) is to use ID3-TagIT. Select the file in ID3-TagIT, click More... on the right, go to Not supported, uncheck all PRIV frames, and click OK (you may need to remove the tracks from library first for this to work).
That's more a suggestion for WMP Tag Plus than for Windows Media Player Plus!, but no, there currently are no plans to add Matroska tag support to WMP Tag Plus. If you are a developer, you could write such support yourself, by making use of the Tag Support API.
Just to be clear, Windows Media Player Plus! doesn't include WMP Tag Plus, these are two separate plug-ins.In the next major version of WMP Plus!, I might make Tag Editor Plus available for other media types, such as videos, but only the Advanced page will be shown. The other pages are too music-oriented, and most of tags in these pages are only available for music.WMP places the Matroska files in Other Media because it doesn't recognize the file type. To make it recognize them as video, a registry patch needs to be installed for WMP 11. For WMP 12, it seems that you need to install DivX Plus.
With KLCP, do you mean Kazaa Lite Codec Pack? If so, I suggest that you uninstall that. The Kazaa Lite codec pack is notorious for damaging people's systems (which applies to most other codec packs as well).
Wow, that's quite a lot of items, and there simply isn't enough time to re-add them all to WMP. Could you please list the ones (5 or so) that are the most important to you?Also, I currently don't have any plans to add features to the sync, burn or rip functionality of WMP, so only library and playback enhancements will be considered.
I use WMP Tag Plus! with WMP12, but the Advanced Tag Editor option doesn't show up in the context menu.They are selected in the WMP Plus!'s configuration.
And a different question: are you planning adding l10n support for your plugins?
And what are the new features of WMP Plus!?
Hi - Well one thing that I'd certainly like to see (and not listed on the Wikipedia list) is to bring back the "Recently Added" tab to the the Music library. Given that I'm always adding stuff and often forgetting what I've added, I used to use this a lot, but it disappered in WMP 12.
I think that you're confusing Windows Media Player Plus! with WMP Tag Plus. They are two completely different plug-ins, the difference between them can be clearly seen on my website
For Windows Media Player Plus!, perhaps in a future version.
