WMA's/Song info screen --> aramoK


Hey,

Two questions about aramoK. I got it playing WMA's (yay !) but it can't read/edit tag information and what wondering if there is a way to make it do that.

Second, aramoK has a 'song info'/'info' screen that appears in the upper left hand corner everytime the track changes that I find rather annoying. Is there anyway to change/move/disable that screen?

Thanks!

wma files have an extremely convoluted format for their meta-info (Try reading the ASF spec -- ouch!).
However, it is possible. I myself have written a lib that reads the wma/wmv tags in Ruby and Python:

This is a question that perhaps only the amarok devs can answer properly for you...

Oh okay, thanks!

And if anyone is wondering, the answer to my second question is to change the "OSD" settings in Configure aramoK
