Both XMMS and Winamp plugins currently only read id3v1 tags.
id3v2 support is on the TODO list here:


If you code feel free to add it since I may not be able to
get to it for a while.

However, the files should play fine... if they don't then
that's a decoder bug for not skipping over them properly.
Do they play OK?
