View Full Version : Bug? => Can't convert Vorbis tags to MP3 tags

08-04-2008, 09:59 AM
I just upgraded to the reference version R13 and there is still this bug that annoys me once in a while.

I made some high quality Ogg Vorbis files of all my CDs. Sometimes I want to convert them to lower bitrate and MP3 format so that I can play them on the CD player in my car (it can play MP3 files but not Ogg).

Several of the original files contain Unicode characters (traditionnal Chinese). When I run the batch conversion everything seems to go well. However, the Unicode characters are not transferred in the MP3 tags. I end-up with question marks instead which happens when a system cannot read Unicode. However you say that dBpowerAmp fully supports Unicode...

I found a way around this by using batch tag editor to put the full tag in the filenames before conversion and then re-creating the tags from the filename after. But it would be nice not to have to do this every time.

That would be great if you could look into this problem. Thanks.

In dBpoweramp Configuration, Codecs and Codec Options and switch on the Unicode option for ID3v2 tags.

Ah! Thanks. So not a bug, just a burried setting...
