ogg123 doesn't play flac files with ID3 tags, no useful error given
Hi. I'm the reporter of ubuntu bug 1250618: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vorbis-tools/+bug/1250618 I've since gone through the FLAC FAQs on the main site, noticing that files with id3 tags are unsupported, and users should not expext these to work. I'd like to disagree with this and voice my concern that such a semi-common file format is not supported. I can understand not supporting a different format of tagging, but (I think) this should not interfere with playback itself. If playback of these files is not possible with the tags, then at least a more informative error message would be welcome. I took me quite a while to even figure out what the problem was, as the "flac" program showed no error or warning on testing or analyzing the file, and other programs (mplayer, VLC...) had no issue with the files in the first place.
