Thread: Lyricist metadata doesn't properly transfer from FLAC to AAC

  1. #1

    Lyricist metadata doesn't properly transfer from FLAC to AAC

    I have lyricist metadata embedded in my FLAC files, and when I convert to other formats, it carries over. When I convert to AAC (m4a), whether I use the Fraunhoffer encoder or Apple's encoder, lyricist metadata doesn't exactly transfer over. However, when I convert using Apple's encoder using Musicbee or Foobar2000, the metadata carries over. When I looked at the tags in files encoded by DBPoweramp in Musicbee, I noticed that instead of a "Lyricist" tag, instead it displays "*copyright symbol*AUT. From what I've been able to gather, that symbol is used in iTunes metadata for videos. How do I carry over "Lyricist" metadata instead of "Author?"

    It was in the old iTunes Metadata specification, but no one seems to use it, so will drop for next update.
