    Album Art tag incompatible with some programs

    Views : 1924 Replies : 3 Likes : 0 #1

    The Streaming Audio Recorder adds an embedded album art image tag to recorded songs that it recognizes, but the art is not displayed by some programs like MediaMonkey and MP3Tag. The problem appears to be a flag bit 80h in the last byte of the APIC tag header, usually at offset 13h in the mp3 file. If that bit is zeroed, the album art is recognized in all programs. I could not find a definition of that flag bit, so I don’t know what it’s supposed to do, but clearly some programs don’t handle it properly. Apowersoft might not even know what it does if they got their ID3 tag writing library from someone else.

    The response from Apowersoft tech support is “not all songs can be recognized”. ?? This answer is unrelated to my question.

    Understood :D

    Sometimes the mismatch between tech support questions and the unrelated answers is just inadvertently funny.
