Hi,

my question is very simple.

Some CD Songs have two or three COMPOSER, when I use my CD Ripper I can include the information of the COMPOSER TAG into the FLAC file.

What do you suggest for SEPARATOR?

----> / (for example Carmichel / Washington)

or

----> , (for example Carmichel, Washington)


What is the better solution, for compatibility and other possible issue? What is the better solution for the MP3 Player tagging management system? (or is indifferent)

Thanks very much


P.S: I have see that FREEDB use , and MusicBrainz use the /

The "\\" was tested just with a FLAC file. In fact, you're right, AAC and MP3 show two different composers if the tag is one "/".

*If the MP3 or AAC file is reencoded to FLAC the "/" converts in "\\".
*If the FLAC file is encoded to MP3 or AAC the "\\" converts to "/".

So:
MP3, AAC (I haven't tested other formats yet) = "/"
FLAC = "\\"
