    M4A Tags

    Is there a way for FrodoPlayer to parse M4A (iTunes) tags? I've got version 1.09 and I can get the M4A files to play, but it doesn't display the tag info (artist, title, album, etc.). It just shows up as "filename" under "M4A Files". Seems from the other posts I've read (like this one) that these tags aren't supported in 1.09. I don't see any mention of them in the threads for 1.10 either. If it's not supported, it would be nice if it is in the future. It would save me from maintaining two music libraries...one for my Ipod and one for my car. Thanks.

    There is a way you can add tags for mpeg files in frodoplayer.. I would assume you can go through the same process for M4A files...

    Seems that as of 8-10-05, Frodo didn't have a tag reader for .m4a. Don't know if you're referring to a manual way to tag the files, but this wouldn't be an option since I have over 3,000 songs !

    i was referring to the manual way.. I didnt know you have 3000 songs... although im sure someone could write a lil vbscript to do it ...
