    how do you .flac'ers handle id3 tags?

    I'm looking into converting my library to .flac but all the current songs i have encoded that way do not have any ID3 tag info. Is it even possible to have the tag info in this type of file?

    yes its possible. But Roadrunner wont read them. (Winamp with the flac plugin supports reading/writing flac tags)

    There are various flac plugins and source codes for other programs that allow the read/write of flac tags, I downloded a bunch of them with the intent of making a roadrunner plugin that would read flac. But unfortunatly I dont have that type of programming knowledge, nor the time to learn it.

    I speak mostly about FLACTagSupport.dll
    which is used for Windows Media Player. Sourcecode is available.

    Theres also:
    APETagSupport.dll
    MPEG4TagSupport.dll
    VorbisTagSupport.dll

    Flac is a lossless compression, so audio quality should be higher than mp3/wma/aac.
