I find when I edit a mp3 file's artist field in audacious,it will only take effect in audacious,and other music applications can't detect information added in audacious.For example,if a song's artist field is empty,and I add the artist name in audacious,it will still be empty when played in other apps.I don't know if this could be a bug,since it works well in audacious,so I file a feature request.

Audacious does write a newer version of ID3 tag (v2.4) than is supported by some other programs.

Fixed in Git master. Audacious will write an ID3v2.3 tag if that is what the file already has. I tested with an MP3 from Amazon, and it was still readable in Windows Media Player after editing in Audacious.
