Windows 7: Support For ID3v2 Tags


29 Aug 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
 
 

IDEv2 2.4 still isn't globally supported in all media players/taggers/encoders etc.
Unicode support is much more important than version number, and it has been proven many times that version number doesn't necessarily mean that whatever you're updating is better. Without unicode support in tags, special characters will never be displayed properly. For example, will all revert to AAACEDOO (or something even worse) if not saved in unicode format, which is just incredibly annoying, especially because the songs with those kind of characters are in a language other than English.
It's not just a question whether Windows and WMP support 2.4 tags, but also mobile phones, mp3 players etc. I never found a reason for using 2.4 tags since 2.3 UNICODE tags work perfectly.

Gornot, id3v2.4 might not be needed (at least yet) by most people, but some software (such as DJ software, for example the widely used Traktor) needs to store information like cue points on the file and that type of information is only allowed in id3v2.4.
