Missing Tag data with AIFF files

Missing Tag data with AIFF files
I have an issue with missing tag data with AIFF files when the tag has multiple entries.

I am running MinimServer (brilliant!) on a Melco N1ZH/2 and a QNAP with Bubble UPnP and Naim control apps. The multiple tag entries appear in Jaikoz and Mp3tag but only the first tag entry is visible in the apps. I am using \\ as a tag entry separator.

The Miminserver log is clean with the exception of the line "Unknown path on line 11 of played-files.txt (80 others)". According to Jaikoz the tag version is ID3v23.

My Minimserver setup shows multiple tags for Flac files with no problem.

I have searched for solutions in the forum without success but apologies if this has been asked before. Any help appreciated.Smile

RE: Missing Tag data with AIFF files
The ID3v2.3 specification allows multiple values only for the following tags:

Artist, OriginalArtist, Lyricist, OriginalLyricist, Composer

The ID3v2.4 specification allows multiple values for almost all tags. If you change your tagging to ID3v2.4, this should fix the problem.

Some tagging programs and servers support a nonstandard extension for multiple values in ID3v2.3. MinimServer implements the ID3v2.3 specification without this nonstandard extension.

Thanks for that clarity Simon. Having now worked out how to change the tag type to ID3v2.4 that has solved the problem. Thank-you
