japanese in mp3 tags/filenames and mp3gain 2007-11-24 23:58:37 long story short...1.) i have a considerable collection of mp3s of japanese bands and groups.2.) mp3gain apparently does not like it when the mp3's have any characters in the filename that are not viewable in DOS. for example, i do most of my tagging and such in mp3tag and manage the actual library (which i share with my mac) via itunes. both mp3tag and itunes happily display the Japanese characters, but any mp3s that contain the Japanese characters in the filename do not even show up in the list of files to be analyzed in mp3gain.SO, i have been pleased with the results of mp3gain so far, but this is kind of a deal breaker for me. many of the songs are not normalized, and worse some bands that utilize english for some of their song names end up with those songs normalized and other songs on the same album not.I have searched around a bit, but not come up with anything conclusive. The creator of mp3gain hasn't answered my e-mails either.Any suggestions? An alternate program that does the same thing (or better) as mp3gain? I do realize that I could get around this by renaming ALL of my Japanese mp3s so they don't have the characters in the filenames, but that is kind of a pain. The funny part is that mp3gain has "Japanese" available as a language for the interface...but can't read files with Japanese in the name.Thanks in advance.
