you'll be lucky if you find anything off the shelf that can do this in my
experience (even for windows). putting ID3 tags in WAVs it seems is not so
standard, and there's a lack of software out there that supports it. after
much consideration on my part, i ended up transcoding all my WAVs to FLAC.
in my case all of the tag info was embedded in the filename / path and so
the tagging was easy. the result is that i can now transcode from a lossless
format to anything without arsing about with re-tagging any more ... i can

Subject: [slim] WAV files with ID3 Tags
I'm looking for help on converting a large library of WAV files (which
all play great on my Squeezebox) to _some_ compressed format (MP3,
ogg, whatever). Here is the problem: All of my WAV's contain ID3 Tag
information (including album art) that was put there by MusicMatch
when I ripped the CD's to the drive. Now the Squeeze does a great job
reading these files _and_ all the tag info ... but nothing else on
Linux (did I mention I'm doing this on Linux - switched from Windows a
while back?) Seems too ....
Does anyone have experience maybe using some of the Perl code of
Slimserver to extract this ID3 Tag info (I've looked at the functions
- I'm just not sure how to use them yet!) and maybe pipe this
information into LAME (for example)? OR, am I just missing a good
WAV->MP3,Ogg encoder that can read these Tags already?
Any help would be great! Thanks and have a good one.
