How can I get Eac to tag my Flac Files?
And is there any way to transcode from Flac to Vorbis, without lose the tags?
I’ am using Flac 1.0.4b by the way.

Thanks for the replay.
But my first question remains unsolved. Is it possible to get “Exact audio copy” to write tags in Flac files? What would the command line look like?
After reading the thread, once more, I came to the conclusion that you could use Oggifier to transcode from Flac to Ogg Vorbis. But it wouldn’t preserve the tags? To copy tags one could use “metaflac --no-utf8-convert --export-vc-to=- file.flac | vorbiscomment --raw -w -c file.ogg”
Or transcode with this line: “FOR /R "E:\PATH\TO\FLAC" %i IN (*.flac) DO flac.exe -d -c "%i" | oggenc.exe -q 0 - -o "D:%~pi%~ni.ogg" && Tag.exe -- fromfile "%i" "D:%~pi%~ni.ogg"” and preserve tags.
But as I sad earlier, I must have tags in the first place with Eac. Maybe I should wait until it’s more mature . blink.gif

You can get EAC to wtite the tags directly with flac.exe. Just enter the following commandline in EAC compression options (with flac as the encoder):

%s --tag=TITLE="%t" --tag=ARTIST="%a" --tag=ALBUM="%g" --tag=TRACKNUMBER="%n" --tag=DATE="%y" --tag=GENRE="%m" --tag=ENCODING="EAC 0.9b4, Secure mode (or whatever you want to appear here)"

Beware that Ogg and mp3 uses different tags for displaying the date. Mp3 uses the "year" tag and Ogg uses "date". So to be on the sure side when transcoding from flac, you might want EAC to write both of the tags. That will, on the other side, make them both appear in ogg.

From flac, you can use dbPoweramp to transcode to all kind of formats - with taggings preserved. However, I have runt into a problem which I describe
here.

For EAC -> FLAC I use:

-8 -T "title=%t" -T "artist=%a" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" %s -o %d

To convert a directory of FLAC files to OGG Vorbis I use:

#!/bin/sh

FLAC=C:/Programs/Audio/flac/bin/
OGG=C:/Programs/Audio/vorbis-tools/

for i in *.flac
do
base=`basename "$i" .flac`
echo "Now converting: $base"
$FLAC/flac -d -c "$base.flac" | $OGG/oggenc -q 6 - -o "$base.ogg" && $FLAC/met
aflac --no-utf8-convert --export-vc-to="tag.tmp" "$base.flac" && $OGG/vorbiscomm
ent --raw -a -c tag.tmp "$base.ogg"
done
echo "Done."
rm tag.tmp
