Write support for FLAC files
« on: May 15, 2021, 05:31:32 PM »
Hi there!

Is there any plans/there's some work already done on exiftool to give write support for FLAC files?

Thanks in advance,

Paulo Matos

I know Phil has previously expressed a dislike of ID3 tags, but FLAC doesn't use that format, does it?  The FLAC tags page indicates Vorbis tags.

I don't think there's been much demand for that.  At least I can't find any previous posts.
Troubleshooting hints:
* When posting, include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).
* Double all percent signs (%) in a Windows batch file.
* If your GPS coords are negative, make sure and set the GpsLatitudeRef and GpsLongitudeRef tags correctly.
