(And to avoid further edition of the previous post)

Hence my considering WavPack as the best of both worlds when it comes to lossless encoding (and just to stick to the now-ancient OP).

That you only have to worry about tagging the files in a supposed lossless/lossy library once, not a second time, as it would be the case with one consisting of say, FLAC and MP3.


it's actually very easy to manage tags across a lossless/lossy collection using foobar2000. you can copy/paste from one set of files to another with ease. obviously it's imperative that each set are in the exact same order. i'm pretty sure only it only updates files where differences have been found, even if you do you whole collection at once.

yep, but i suspect a large chunk of people won't have that choice because of the portable device they use.

IMO, that alone, deems this solution less practical than WP's.

That I didn't know. Thanks.

Now that the table (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Lossless_comparison#Comparison_Table) is updated, why ID3/APEv2 is worst than APEv2 or Vorbis tags?

Please read this post in this topic a few weeks back.

Having two allowed (by which I mean the official software and plugins support it) tagging schemes means that you can have two sets at once. Different versions of ID3 alone can give problems, see this topic, especially post #6. I think it's quite a downside to have two possibly conflicting versions of tags in one file.
