Not interested in OS debates, used android for two years and switched to windows phone 8. My reasons are my own. In trying to deal with the "unknown artist" problem I have discovered a few things. WP8 doesn't like id3v2.4. Any such tagged mp3 files show up as unknown artist. Used mp3tag to convert to 2.3. WP8 doesn't like utf enabled tags even if there are no non English characters in the artist tag. Fine, converted to ISO, no more unknown artist. My final issue is that with my own ripped cds I encode to lame mp3 using foobar2k, the release year shows up in WP8 no problem. With the few mp3s I have from other sources the album year does not display in WP8, no matter how many times I compare the tags in mp3tag, I cannot find any differences between my encoded files and other sourced mp3s. I guess the question is this: what is lame/foobar doing differently than mp3tag that allows the release year to show up? Year shows up fine in my own encoded files but not in the files sourced elsewhere despite carefully tagging them in mp3tag. Year shows up fine in windows explorer on pc.

Sorry to necro my own topic, I forgot to mention windows phone 8 finally supports folder.jpg for album art, solving the major bitch I've had with wmp/zune for ages, what was marring the best music interface anywhere. (sorry rockbox, I love you but you are fugly). Now Microsoft, fix gapless FFS, considering the zunehd handles lame gapless just fine, WTF.
