Out of convenience, some plugins and implementations allow and also read other kinds of tags. For example, the official FLAC Winamp and XMMS plugins can also read ID3 v1 and v2 tags in addition to FLAC tags. The reference decoder knows how to skip ID3 tags so that they don't interfere with decoding. But you should not expect any tags beside FLAC tags to be supported in all applications; some implementations may not even be able to decode a FLAC file with ID3 tags.

This list is so large now it is difficult to maintain and keep up-to-date. For a partial list of open-source software that supports FLAC, see the "Software supporting FLAC" section in the "links" box of the <A HREF="index.html">main page</A>. For a partial list of the most popular software used to encode, decode, play, tag, and rip FLAC files, see the <A HREF="download.html">download page</A>.
