Publisher Field Handling

Post by djpat » Tue Aug 15, 2023 9:37 pm

Something has happened with how the Publisher field is handled in FLAC files with latest update it seems.

The PUBLISHER field as recognized by other programs (mp3tag, vlc, winamp, etc) is showing up in EZ Meta Tag Editor as "ORGANIZATION".

Information entered into EZ Meta Tag Editor in the PUBLISHER field is no longer visible in other programs.

It seems like the MP3Tag by default maps PUBLISHER metadata to ORGANIZATION tag in FLAC/Vorbis Comments:

EZ CD Audio Converter and EZ Meta Tag Editor use the standard PUBLISHER tag:
Internal Name PUBLISHER
Vorbis Comment PUBLISHER
MPEG-4 ISO FF ©pub
APEv2 Publisher
Windows Media WM/Publisher
