oggenc cannot read FLAC files with ID3 tags
$ oggenc -q 7 foo.flac
Assuming foo.flac contains ID3 tags instead of the standard Vorbis format, oggenc fails to recognize the file. This is probably a good thing to encourage people to use the standard format Vorbis tags instead of ID3 in FLAC files, but it still leaves users stuck with "tainted" FLAC files they are trying to transcode to ogg that they, presumably, got from somewhere else. It might be a good idea to have a switch --enable-legacy-flac or some such for oggenc runtime that is available if at compile time oggenc is configured with FLAC enabled input toggled.
I could be mistaken in that this isn't an issue with oggenc, but perhaps with libflac or some other backend.
I am using Jaunty's vorbis-tools package (amd64) version 1.2.0. I say this here, since the version isn't available on the ticket version combobox.
PS Does anyone know which junky FLAC encoder is responsible for writing out ID3 tags in the first place?
