Note: AAC, M4A, ALAC, APE and SPX formats (as well as others) are now supported by the standalone Audio Tags plugin which comes with Opus 10 and above. You no longer need this plugin for those formats.
This plugin hooks Directory Opus into dBpoweramp Reference to enable Opus to display tags and metadata for several additional audio formats:
- .AAC .M4A: iTunes AAC and ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec)
- .AIF .AIFF .AIFC: AIFF
- .APE: Monkey's Audio
- .MPC .MP+ .MPP: MusePack
- .OFR .OFS: OptimFROG
- .SHN: Shorten
- .SND: Dalet
- .SPX: Speex
- .TTA: The True Audio
- .W64: Wave64
- .WV .WVC: WavePack
Support for some of the above formats will be has been added to the Audio Tags Plugin in the future, removing the dependency on dBpoweramp. However, it's unlikely that all of the formats above will be moved over. The dMCTags plugin will remain to handle the more esoteric audio formats.
Since Opus allows you to use music tags when renaming files the plugin can help you tidy up your music's filenames or even rearrange the files into new album folders using your chosen of naming system. See the second screenshot below for an example where the garbled filenames on an iPod are sorted into album folders.
Please see the web page for the dMC Tags plugin for information on installation and limitations of the plugin:
Please note that dBpoweramp Reference is required and without it the plugin will not do anything.
Also, unlike my other plugins, this one is 32-bit-only unless a 64-bit version of dBpoweramp comes out.
