ID3 Tag support
« on: April 09, 2006, 03:18:07 AM »
Hi all, I'm planning to build an home MP3 player based on MPXPLAY and i find VCC on the web.
Is there any plan to add ID3 tag support?
My player will get music from another computer (I have an home media server with music, photos, films, etc.). As this server will be accessed even by other computer I'd like to keep music files with long filename instead of name like Track1.mp3...)
regards
Luca

VCC doesn't support ID3 tags, but MPXPlay does.  The TSR program doesn't touch the music files, it just reads what MPXPlay has on the screen and uses that.  In theory, track naming should still work.

One place where you would have trouble, though, is in the vcc.exe program.  It expects to find a file called discinfo.txt, in each album directory.  It reads the file to get its album naming information.

Bottom line: Feel free to try it out, but keep in mind that I haven't tested in that configuration.
