Yep, Dan and I are working on that FLAC tag code currently. A higher level
answer to your question is that both Ogg and FLAC use Vorbis tags, although
the implementation of these tags in each format differs. FLAC's
documentation is a bit easier to read. We'll eventually be supporting MPC
and APE, as well as WavPack (I think) and all of those formats use APE v2
tags. Once I've seen a good example of how we want these tag-reading
modules written, I'll jump on it ASAP - and then you can add those to your
album cover script capability as well.

Regards,
Erik

That sounds great, I look forward to using those. If in the meantime I
can help with any of the work on the modules, just let me know please.

I commited updates to Audio::FLAC and Slim::Formats::FLAC earlier today from
myself & Erik - this should fix any problems people are having when a .flac
has both a ID3 tag and a Vorbis comment.
