Summary: [lame] remove tag writing support
Version: HEAD CVS
AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net
ReportedBy: t.i.m at zen.co.uk
QAContact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net
GNOME version: Unspecified
GNOME milestone: Unspecified
Tag writing support should be removed from the Lame plugin.
(It doesn't work anyway currently, as the last buffer isn't flushed on EOS, so
the tag is never pushed out in the current 0.10 version)
a) it has never worked in the 0.10 series
b) Lame only supports a very very small number of tags
c) Lame only writes tags with ISO-8859-1 encoding, even
when told to write ID3v2 tags, so a lot of users will
never be able to write tags containing strings in
their language with lame
d) Lame writing tags causes problems when used with
muxers like avidemux or matroskamux (although one
could give lame a property to disable tag writing,
but people would still need to find it and disable
I say let's remove it before it's too late and recommend id3mux as replacement
(and check that id3mux actually works).
