Subject: APEv2 tag support?
From: Noah Smith (midblue_at_carolina.rr.com)
Date: 2004-04-07


Hello,
    I was wondering about the fesability of incorporating APEv2 tag reading
into Rockbox. It's the preferred tagging system for Foobar2K, and is also
supported by an alternate Winamp mp3 input dll, in_mpg123.dll. It's much
more versatile than ID3v1, and in some ways more desirable than ID3v2 (the
tags are appended to end of file instead of beginning, much simpler to
implement, etc).
    I noticed that there was a patch submitted over a year ago for this
purpose, but it was not incorporated into Rockbox. Since then, the tags have
become more widespread, so I thought I'd ask.

For some technical information on the tags, I did find one site oulining
their details.

Thanks.
