I Want to Use LAME to Create MP3s with Comment Fields Compatible with iTunes 2017-08-08 17:32:49 Hi there,I am trying to change my podcast production workflow to use LAME for encoding and tagging instead of iTunes.The difficulty I'm having is that the LAME-created MP3, when imported into iTunes (either imported directly from a hard drive or downloaded from my server via the podcast feed), appears to have a blank Comments field.Taking a look at the files with Tag Clinic on Windows, it appears that the comment tag created with iTunes is ID3v2.2 with the language field set to English. Created by LAME, it is ID3v2.3 with the language field showing up as blank.To add to the confusion: when previewing the files with the MacOS X Finder ("Get Info" command), both files look fine and show the comment information I expect. When previewing the files with Windows Explorer ("Properties") command, the LAME-created file shows a comment field like I expect, and the iTunes-tagged file shows a zero or some hex data.If anyone wants to take a shot at examining the test MP3 files I'm looking at, you can find them here. This one is generated by LAME, it looks OK with Mp3tag but the comment field is blank in iTunes:http://thepottshouse.org/pottscasts/gapp/Conversation%20%2311_%20White%20Working%20Class%20(August%206,%202017)_LOUDER_LAME_128.mp3Meanwhile, this one was encoded by iTunes and I tagged it manually. The comment tag shows up in Mp3tag and as I expect in iTunes (typo and all).http://thepottshouse.org/pottscasts/gapp/Conversation%20%2311_%20White%20Working%20Class%20(August%206,%202017).mp3The bit rate and audio quality is not final -- I'm not done screwing around with compressor/limiter settings, so please don't bother to critique that unless you are feeling very motivated.I don't really care about who is following the most standard way to do things -- I'd just like to create MP3 files that are as compatible as possible. What's the best practice for maximum compatibility here? Is there a way to get LAME to make a comment tag that iTunes will read?Thanks!
