all i'm saying is that winamp recognizes the worthiness of employing a sensible SOP for bug reporting. they do so b/c that method is effective. that effectiveness is a universal truth.

I have not presented conclusions on what the problem of this thread is or is not.
I didn't object b/c I wasn't testing it. but now I am. so there u r.

and you have drawn all sorts of conclusions saying this or that. they may be true, but I see no proof they are. its interesting to me that the latest build, and the next build, have some kinds of changes in them provided by DrO. that's a great thing, for both id3 and FLAC. hopefully he will let us behind the curtain and say what he changed so we can further our understanding of winamp.

I know, I did not say otherwise. I did say you brought up your v1 issue in his FLAC issue, and you did. in either case, I see no harm, it can be instructive to point to related things.

So now it is just a visual discrepancy between what is in the file and what is being shown. I can live with that, since what is shown for genre on the basic info and the v2 tabs is what is actually in the v1 genre tag.
...unless of course, what is in the v2 tag is not part of the finite, default, v1 list.

my guess all along has been that the alt+3 window needed to parse fresh the file in question on invocation, be it mp3 or flac, and I said so earlier in this thread. its very similar to a ratings issue where the rating did not show even when in the file, if it wasn't in the ML. parsing the file on playback instead of going to the ML fixed it. so if I am right, same thing would apply; only "alt+3" substitutes for playback. and care would need to be taken to be sure the left/right arrows (from jtfe?) caused a parsing as well, when alt+3 is invoked via double-clicking the playback scroller.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
