Description

APE ReplayGain metadata in MP3 is not recognized by Audacious if any ID3 tags are present.

This is a big problem because
1. Most MP3 files contain ID3 metadata
2. MP3Gain writes APE ReplayGain metadata by default, and so does SoundKonverter (which uses MP3Gain).

History

I would call this user error (perhaps encouraged by a bad default in mp3gain). If your MP3 files have ID3 tags, you should be using mp3gain -s i to write the ReplayGain info to the ID3 tag. Adding an APE tag to a file that already has an ID3 tag doesn't make a lot of sense.
