The tag names and contents in flac and vorbis are (largely) the same but the container formatting is very different. Except that flac can be placed in an ogg container, that's very rare though and you should probably just forget I said it.
I have no idea if including more padding will help in your situation. The tagger is clearly doing something undesirable that could possibly be considered a bug. You can play with padding but a more reliable solution might be to try different software. Even just as a test, it would show that you aren't doing something completely crazy and that it is just one program that is messing up.
Just for the record, I've tagged a lot of flac and vorbis files without seeing symptoms like you describe. They aren't inherent to the tag format.
I find that pretty hard to reproduce but I do get the occasional flicker.I can consistently reproduce it though. The easiest way:
1. Open property list that is big enough to have scrollbar.
2. Click on top item to make it 'blue'.
3. Click on 'arrow down' button on scrollbar.
Result: value of first item is wrong now and matches the selected 'blue' item.
FWIW, it looks like 3rd party PropertyList library is to blame but I have no idea how to fix it.I've tried debugging a bit (lib is back from 2003, lol), but couldn't find the exact source of the problem. I've managed to prevent the bug from happening by removing "bHandled = FALSE" from OnLButtonUp method (PropertyList.h:605). But that's just brute-force programming -_-. This lib should be probably replaced some day with the more robust one (and may be a bit younger than 14 years old).
I follow advices and with the code below : this compile.
However, the output entry does not appear in FB2K output combobox.
I probably miss something, but I don't know what...
(output_asio derives from output_v2).
class output_asio_instance : public output_asio
If you are going to delete the old - and, assuming you have not already done so - I would have used a utility that deletes duplicates by name and/or by content, to see if there is anything left uncopied / unconverted.Audiotester can be very useful to find corrupted FLACs, which are too corrupted to be recognized by fb2k as FLACs, before mass conversion. Also it is multi-threaded, so much faster than foo_verifier.

I've had quite a few discs die, mainly due to poor handling when younger, using them in 10 disc cd stackers in cars (swirling scratches) and disc rot (I think caused by moving to a country with high humidity).
Now my music protected in a 3-2-1 backup ( 3 copies, 2 different media, 1 offsite) so i don't have to go through the pain of re ripping, musicbrains tagging, album arting those CDs again.
I agree, but I can't force the Radio Paradise to fix their tags. foobar2000 could handle this case properly by default.
This is just bad tagging. If there is no artist, there should not be ARTIST= in file.
I'd rather recommend a "banned" plugin than lie "it is not possible, just live with it".
I use this plugin (version 2013-02-19) for years and it does a lot of very useful things which are not possible without it, and these settings make the player much more convenient at least for me. For example, using Shift+Esc for minimizing the window of the player is very inconvenient for me, I use just Esc for years. Also I like that now the player is smart enough to stop playing music when I mute the system sound or when I start to speak with someone using Skype. There are really a lot of very useful settings, the plugin is very stable (last time my foobar2000 had been crashed years ago because of another plugin), and "banned" status doesn't make this plugin less useful. On the contrary, this plugin makes foobar2000 more useful and smart.
I'm quite sure that the problem is not caused by any plugin. You can reproduce it easily on your copy of the player. Just try to listen the radio and open settings where you can change title formatting:

Please don't use spectrum analysis to compare audio quality for lossy codecs such as MP3.I have an idea: let's download Spek, flag it as virus and submit to all AV engines.
