FS#12419 - Support for embedded cuesheets.

This patch adds the ability for a cuesheet to be embedded within a tag of an audio file, and to be read directly from there.

Currently only the ID3v2 TXXX:CUESHEET tag is supported, but I plan to look into FLAC next.

I’ve attached a perl script to generate a little test mp3 to demonstrate the patch. You’ll need the CPAN MP3::Tag module installed to run it (Debian package libmp3-tag-perl).

Alternatively, you can use eyeD3 (package eyed3 or to attach an existing cuesheet to a corresponding mp3 file;

eyeD3 –set-user-text-frame=”CUESHEET:`cat example.cue`” example.mp3

Added support for FLAC with cuesheet embedded using –tag-from-file, e.g.;

flac –tag-from-file=”CUESHEET=example.cue” example.wav -o example.flac

Added a manual entry.

To encode Ogg Vorbis or Speex;

oggenc -c “CUESHEET=`cat example.cue`” example.wav -o example.ogg

speexenc –comment “CUESHEET=`cat example.cue`” example.wav example.spx

Vorbis comments now default to utf8 encoding.
