[Bug Report] Cannot display album, track, and artist names via upnp media server

When I am testing my skin on iOS 16.11 with newest build v1.5 (13) of the foobar2000 mobile,
I found that the application cannot display album, track, and artist names correctly when playing via upnp media server.
I got the similar results with the default skins Black and White (see attached picture).

I used the latest stable 32-bit version of desktop foobar2000 v2.1.2 and the UPnP/DLNA Renderer, Server, Control Point 0.99.49 component as a upnp media server on local wifi network.
Setting about upnp streaming is here.

Regardless of the streaming format, the above track information was not displayed correctly, and the temporary .wav file name for streaming was displayed instead of the album and track titles. Nothing was displayed for the artist.
The [infosource-nowplaying-static] did not work for this issue. Using [title] or %title% for the [label] element did not change the result.
However, when [infosource-nextplaying] was applied, the next track information was displayed correctly. Technical information such as codec, bits per sample, and sample rate is correctly displayed like "PCM 24 bit / 48 kHz".

Since the current track information is displayed correctly for a very short moment at the start of playback, the problem is probably in some application side processing at starting playback.

Thanks for your help.
I have confirmed that the latest build v1.5 of Android fixes this problem for upnp over LAN.
Thank you very much.

However, via the internet this problem seems to remain.
Please confirm.

Hi, niao.

Indeed, track titles, etc. seem to be replaced by the names of temporary mp3 files when accessed via the Internet.
But when I set "Transcode" in UPnP > Server > Streaming Profiles > Transcoding to MP3 to "never" and uncheck all "or except" checkboxes in the desktop version of foobar2000, the track title and artist name are displayed correctly.
I am not familiar with the internal processings of tag information when the original source file is converted to MP3.

Anyway, many users would consider converting to MP3 for Internet access to reduce traffic, so it would be desirable to have this problem corrected.
