Seems indeed like Microsoft has their own AAC encoderBTW: https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=77162.0
If you use it, you will have nice tags displayed in the Details panel. Or you can use foo_discogs which is also a great alternative.
You don't need to use mp3tag anymore, I've abandoned it many years ago...
- Add `properties + other info` sample which makes use of the `GetOtherInfo` method added in `v126.96.36.199`.
- The original `properties` sample no longer displays `ReplayGain` or `Playback Statistics` info. Use the new addition above if you want to display them.
AAC is a part of Windows OS now.
What exactly does being "a part of Windows OS" mean?
@TTSlightly off-topic, but when I used to use Media Monkey, it messed up loads of tags and I stopped using it. The best option I have found is mp3tag. That said, even it conflicts with FB2K over mutilple fields within a tag (eg:\ in mp3tag, I use <; > as the separator, FB2K changes decides to change it to <\\> - and vice-versa).
Turns out when I use MediaMonkey to tag files it saves them as "xxxx; xxxx" for "maximum compatibility". Any way to make that work?
