I've been using fb2k in windows for the past three years. I'm looking for a linux solution.

What do my fellow fb2k users recommend? I'd rather not use wine, I'm looking for something native.

I was using mostly XMMS for a while because I found a plugin that would read replaygain values from the APEV2 tag in my MP3 files. Now, I found MPD (with GMPC as the frontend) and it's a really easy way to listen to music. It's great for networking (computer with wireless card behind my home stereo can be controlled from main desktop in different room) but I don't think it supports replaygain for MP3s yet.

I still use foobar2000 with Wine for tagging/organizing and replay gain-ing my collection. If only the player didn't stutter when playing back audio and working on the computer, I would use it all the time.

foobar2000 0.8.3 works fine as a player under wine, using waveout and a big buffer wink.gif
foobar2000 0.9.4.1 on the other hand... kaputs!

The most disturbing lacking feature in linux players is replaygain support. Some barely read tags for some file formats either with extra scripts or using their own tag format. My biggest problem are mp3s tagged with foobar2000 (APEv2). Quod Libet (player) Ex Falso (tagger) likes id3v2.4 for some odd reason, rva something (page is down).

I think im needing a converter to move all replaygain tags from apev2 to id3v2 to make use of mpd.

It prefers id3v2 for the extremely odd reason that it’s /the/ standard. To be frank Foobar2000 doesn’t set the standard even if it might seem like it on this board. You’re aware that the new Foobar stopped writing Ape tags to MP3s per default, right?
RVA2 is in the id3 spec.

BTW there’s an official plugin for QL to rewrite MP3s with APE tags to id3 tags. You need to select a bunch of files and then call the plugin. The problem remaining is converting RG to RVA2, and I hate that one.

What standard? The mp3 format never defined any official tag system, as far as i know all tagging is non-standard. "Defacto" could be a better word, perhaps in the likes of winamp and musicmatch.

I am aware of current foobar2000 v9 practice. I'm also aware of all the discussion about why ID3v2 was evil™ back in the day foobar2000 started, and why not even include ID3v2 support and use APEv2 and or ID3v1 instead. In fact that should remain in the archives of hydrogenaudio. Some years have passed and now i have thousands of files APEv2 tagged.

Then the problem remains. I'd rather have the player support APEv2 and be done with it.

You’re right, I should have enclosed the the in double quotes instead of italics.
What’s so frustrating about it is that the code for the canonical RG tags is there, he just refuses to read them from liekwise named id3 frames.
