File Metadata
Hi folks. It's my understanding that some file types like WAV, possibly DFF or DSF, don't allow for tagging metadata to be stored in the file itself. Some server software like JRiver allows that particular program to associate this sort of information, not in the file itself, but in the server software instead.

Does MinimServer allow for this sort of functionality? If not, do you think it will ever be implemented?

Thank you!

RE: File Metadata
DSF supports metadata (in ID3v2 format) as a standard part of the specification. MinimServer has full support for this.

WAV files can include metadata in LIST/INFO or ID3v2 format. Neither is fully part of the official WAV specification but both are supported fairly widely. MinimServer supports ID3v2 but not LIST/INFO.

The DFF format has no provision for metadata and there is no generally accepted way to add metadata to a DFF file. MinimServer does not support metadata in DFF files.

That helps a lot and I thank you for the information!
