Windows 7: How to add music in FLAC to WMP 12 library?

Thanks for the reply. A lot of people recommend Foobar, it seems to be the best FLAC player, but I've put a lot of effort into maintaining my WMP library and I'd be a bit lost without it. I guess for the albums that need gapless playback the most, I will play in Foobar until I solve this issue.

To get the lengths of the FLAC files in the library (and full tag support), install the WMP Tag Plus plug-in and re-add the files.

When playing FLAC in WMP 12 there is an annoying gap as the track changes. Albums that have segued tracks sound really jarring between tracks as a result.
Does anyone know if there is a fix giving gapless FLAC playback in WMP12?
As far as I know, gapless playback in WMP isn't possible for formats that aren't supported by default, and that need to be played by the use of a DirectShow filter. The same applies to WMP's crossfading in general.

WMP Tag Plus is a new tag support plug-in that will fix these problems:

BM-productions WMP Tag Plus

To prevent conflicts, it is recommended to uninstall or disable all other WMP tag support plug-ins before installing WMP Tag Plus.
thank you very much for this info my wmp library has never looked fuller ,ive even got cover art too...wayhay!

redtrigger: you need a tag support plug-in such as WMP Tag Plus (also discussed above). After installing WMP Tag Plus, re-add the FLAC files to WMP's library and you should now see the correct artists, provided that the FLAC files have been tagged correctly.

Woo Hoo!!!!!!! GOT IT! Finally!!!! Hell Yeah!! Album titles were tagged incorrectly, track numbers where missing, hence the alphabetical listing, and it appears that WMP runs 32 bit from the Start Menu and 64 bit from the Task Bar. (Note to self, need to use the 32 bit.) Definitely needed several things to solve this equation. WMP Tag Plus v1.2, codecs from xiph.org, Mp3Tag and most certainly the great people here at sevenforums. Thanks again boohbah, noobvious and Tim De Baets for developing such useful software! Thanks again everyone!

Good to hear, and you're welcome

I suggest that you unpin the current WMP shortcut from the task bar and pin the one in the Start Menu, so that you don't accidentally launch the 64-bit version again.

OOPS! Here we go again! Tried to restore media library and everything went back to UNKNOWN again and I do mean EVERYTHING! I had deep reservations about that.
