[ Sorry for sending this twice; I sent it to the vorbis-dev list by
The ALBUM, ARTIST, TITLE, and TRACKNUMBER tags aren't sufficient for
classical music. MP3 muffed it, but since Vorbis is so flexible, I'd
like to propose that ogg123 recognize and display the following
optional tags, instead of giving an error message that it doesn't
recognize the tags.
Oh, before I list the tags; I encourage comments and feedback, and
Monty, if I was to provide a patch to ogg123 that supported my proposal,
would you be open to including it?
this alerts ogg123 to look out for the other tags mentioned
here. Otherwise it does what it normally does.
the number of the work; ie, Opus 10, BWV 81 (bach), K6 (mozart)
composer of the work. ie, Gustav Mahler
individual performers singled out for mention;
ie, Sally Straw (violinist)\nJim Buck (harmonica)
the group playing the peice, whether orchestra, choir,
or quartet, ie, Berlin Philharmonic. if there are multiple
ensembles, they can be listed together as with the
conductor of the work; ie Herbert von Karajan. As with
ENSEMBLE, if there are multiple conductors, list them same as
with PERFORMERS tag (some oddball modern works require multiple
conductors at the same time)
the record label that produced the CD
since the EIN, ISBN, etc numbers aren't to be reliably found
on the CD, nor is the catalog number reliable, the cddb
discid should go here.
if found, put ISBN or EIN of the compact disc here.
the track number on the CD
title of the work, ie "Pastoral"
type of work, ie, Symphony or Sonata or Piano Concerto
if the work is one of a series, its number goes here.
ie, Beethovens 1st Piano Concerto would be "1"
if the work is broken into more than one part, this tells you
which part it is. ie, "1. Allegreto andante"
where the recording was made
date and time the recording was made
