View Full Version : FLAC/Vorbis tags format?

I had a great suggestion from Robert Thompson to modify my album cover
script to also work on Ogg and FLAC files.

Is anyone here familiar with how those formats store tags? Is there more
than one way to store tags w/them or is there only one (like id3 on MP3s)?

Any info would be appreciated.

I recently checked in Audio::FLAC to the SlimServer CPAN tree (it will soon make it's way to CPAN itself).

For Ogg, check out Ogg::Vorbis::Header and Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl

Dan,

Thanks for the info, I'll definitely check out your FLAC module. I spent
a bunch of time playing with Ogg modules last night as well. Have you
seen any difference in the implementation of Ogg::Vorbis::Header vs
Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl? I am trying to avoid the former as it has
native dependencies that might be tough for some users.

Thanks,
Victor

Dan,

Forgot to ask you in my last email...

When you say "I recently checked in Audio::FLAC to the SlimServer CPAN
tree" do you mean in CVS (since I don't see it there)? Or is there a
CPAN mirror that slimdevices hosts that I need to pull the module from?

Into CVS CPAN.

Take a look at Slim/Formats/Ogg.pm from CVS - I take that into account for SlimServer, you might want to do something similar.
