Audtool ID3 tag compatibility

Added by Louis Cornell 5 months ago

Audtool it a fantastic utility, but I wonder what ID3 tag version(s) does it support? I notice some of my tags work with audtool but others do not, so I am assuming some of my tags are not compatible versions.

As an example, I used mediainfo to validate there is a populated comment field on each of two different tags, but when entering in bash audtool --current-song-tuple-data comment
only one of the tags displays the comment field data, the other displays a blank return.

If it is a version compatibility issue, then I just need to know the correct version to write the tag(s) to.

This tag displyed the comment correctly in audtool:

To answer my question...when you update a tag, you have to refresh the 'instance' in audacious by pressing F6. There does not appear to be an audtool command to do F6.
