WMP Tag Plus is a plug-in that integrates seamlessly into Windows Media Player to provide library and tagging support for additional music formats. These formats include FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, Musepack and MPEG-4.
After installing WMP Tag Plus, Windows Media Player puts songs of the newly supported formats into its media library, together with the tags these songs contain. When editing the tags of these songs in the library, changes are saved back to file as well. This means that you can painlessly browse and organize songs of the newly supported formats in the library, just as you would for songs of natively supported formats like MP3 or Windows Media Audio (WMA).
In addition, WMP Tag Plus allows you to also use the Advanced Tag Editor to edit the tags for newly supported formats. Windows Media Player 12 lacks the Advanced Tag Editor, but there you can use the new tag editor of the Windows Media Player Plus! plug-in to get the same result.
WMP Tag Plus is currently the only Windows Media Player tag support plug-in that is still up-to-date, actively supported and fully compatible with the latest versions of Windows and Windows Media Player. Other tag support plug-ins don't allow seeking during playback of newly supported formats either. Seeking is no issue at all when using WMP Tag Plus.
Please note that WMP Tag Plus only adds library and tagging support. Additional packages might be required to enable Windows Media Player to play the new formats:
- FLAC and Ogg Vorbis: Xiph.org DirectShow Filters
- WavPack: CoreWavPack DirectShow Filters
- Monkey's Audio: official Monkey's Audio package
- Musepack: MONOGRAM Musepack DirectShow Decoder/Splitter
WMP Tag Plus is written for Windows Media Player 11 or higher.
