#2977 closed patch (fixed)

id3v1 tags not removed and id3v2 tags not added

If you have an mp3 file with a id3v1 tag, and you edit the metadata, the id3v1 is left unaltered (although source code comment suggests that it should have been removed) and changes are only stored in the id3v2 tag. And if there was no id3v2 tag, the new metadata is not written.

Attached patch fixes both issues ;

  • insert v2 tag if no tag exists
  • if writing v2 tag and v1 tag exists, truncate file at v1 tag.

Eskil, it appears id3v2 tags are being written to the start of the file, but they aren't readable by any id3 tag readers. I'm guessing they aren't formatted correctly. I've not found the cause yet, and I'm not even sure if the problem existed prior to this patch but I thought I should mention it.

Never mind, user error, I was testing using apps which don't support ID3v2.4 tags. Surprisingly difficult to find anything supporting v2.4 to test with.
