Audacity can write WAV files with INFO tags. dBpowerAMP Music Converter can do this too.
By the way: WMP 12 writes 'LIST' chunk first, then 'fmt ' chunk. Both Audacity and dMC do the opposite: 'fmt ' chunk first, then 'LIST'. Probably that's why WMP cannot read tags from these files.(usual advice: use lossless formats with proper tagging support)
In case of WMP11:Only when ripping a CD to WAV a couple of RIFF Info Tags are written.You can't change them afterwards.The tags are:IART (artist)INAM (title)IPRD (product)IGNR (genre)ITOC (?) ITRK (track number) Don't know if this is changed in WMP12 as I stopped using WMP
While Audacity and dbPoweramp "claim" to write ID3v2 and INFO tags
That's all very nice, but..A. Why would anyone use wav files instead of lossless compressed files,B. What players would recognize these tags, andC. Why would anyone use wav files instead of lossless compressed files?
Im not sure what the demand for Wav is but there is certainly demand for Aif, for example its one of the most requested enhancements for this project http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-blis...63-aiff-support. And these tags are recognised by mainstream players such as iTunes, Media Monkey ectera.
