  • front ends and .m4a

    Just wondering do any front ends here support ID3 tags for .m4a files?
    What I mean by this is do the front ends allow u to browse your music library of .m4a files by:
    Genre - Artist - album - song

    All I have been able to find is

    Artist - song
    Genre - artist - song.....(no ALBUM)

    each artists seperate albums are put into 1 folder of all their songs...the albums aren't seperate.

    can anyone help?

        i think the next release of centrafuse might have .m4a support

          frodoplayer 2.00 will have this supported as well. So I guess we will be waiting anxiously

            ummm, just download some m4a codec for windows media player and then use frodo...
            worked for me

              Also, in Frodo, can't you create a tag file for songs. For example, if the song is song.mp4
              Can't you create a tag file using notebook and name it song.mp4.txt or something like that? I seem to remember reading that somewhere in Frodo's forum. I don't know the format that the txt file has to be in (sorry)

              Done for the most part. Except tweaking the software.

                if u install a .m4a codec I find that in frodoplayer they are sorted in a .m4a genre. Haven't tried a tag file b4.
