    Downloadable mp3 files contain bad encoded id3 tags

    Hi!

    ALL the mp3 files that are downloadable here have their unicode ID3 tags broken.

    Try this vietnamese mp3 for instance (easily readable characters for non initiate): Diễm Xưa.

    All extended characters are replaced by "?".
    Let me remind everyone that ID3v2.3 (used here) supports unicode.

    It's this way for ALL files, not only this sample.
    It means that all the almost all the songs that are not english sung are affected by the bug.
    (ja, zh, ko, vi, ru, …)

    I even tried to upload a correctly tagged song of mine and then each one of its special characters were, as I expected, cropped by "?".

    Lastly I'm really sorry to say that again but the forum is very bad because I already wrote this post but it's impossible to find anything back. I have to bookmark every interesting posts.
    I hope this time someone will read the post and fix it. I bookmarked it anyway, so I can BUMP once in a while.

  • Do you have any examples (links to pages here)?

    Edit: Ah, you added it. :)

    I wouldn't want to influence the investigations but I think it might be the upload procedure which changes the ID3 tags.

    I know it changes the tags because it adds this COMMENT:
    Free download from http://www.last.fm/music/Kh%C3%A1nh+Ly.

    So, at this moment, it might alter the other tags in an undesirable way. :)

    Oh while I'm at it, there is another bug in this procedure:
    It resets the TRACK field to 1.

    Still buggy

    Hello foreverautumn,

    I don't know if something has been done on this since june.
    Please don't forget this problem as it affects all tunes with different language than english.

    Any character outside of the ANSI range will be replaced by question mark.

    Here is a sample with a MP3 I uploaded myself where the ellipsis (…) is broken in the ID3: Another Time… (cd v1.0).
    That gives Another Time? (cd v1.0) instead of Another Time… (cd v1.0).

    But you can try any japanese, vietnamese, chinese, cyrillic, french, … MP3 download.

    Thank you (^_^)/
    Tristan

    2009 !

    Could this be fixed for 2009 ?

    All special characters turn to "?" in ID3 tags of last.fm downloadable MP3 files.
