View Full Version : Flac
Hmm, someone once told me that the X5 could read the tags off of a FLAC file; however, all of my files have tags and yet the player still displays the filename. What gives?
Do the tags display while playing? I can only see the tags when playing the song, not when browsing. Yes, the X5 does support FLAC tags. I used 'abcde' to rip my FLAC files from cd (it tagged them, as well.)
Did you adjust the display to show Id3 tags instead of filenames?
slag: Maybe it was because I had the factory standard firmware. I just loaded the beta 5 firmware, so I will try it out here in a bit.
Thanks for the reply. I'll let you know how everything goes.
Hm, no luck yet. I wonder why it's not working on my unit.
There are id3v1 and id3v2 tags (and probably more). could it be using the wrong one? Just making random guesses here
No, I think that is a valid stab at the problem. For your information, BirdFish, I am using id3v2. And again, the tags only show when playing the particular song (have to actually press play for the tag to load.) It displays a "face" icon with the artist title next to it, a "cd" with the album title next to it, and the filetype icon with the song title next to it.
I am using v2.10b4-e firmware. To set up the id3 tag display, I went to:
(x) ID3 Tag
I hope you get it working!
Here's a picture of ID3 display for FLAC.
Hey slag I'll check it out later tonight, no time right now. But could you tell me what program you're using to tag your files? I was using mp3Tag (because it said that it did flac tags as well.
Aha, thanks for all of the input guys. I wasn't pressing the "play" button, rather just playing the file. It is in fact working. :)
