Hi there,

I've been using VLC from the Nux repos on my Centos 7.2 system (relatively fresh install). Everything works well for FLAC, but MP3 files are a different story. VLC can play them, but appears to ignore all metadata, making it impossible to get the most out of VLC's media library functionality.

Is this a known issue? Am I missing something?

Would appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks!

Strange that nobody has seen this. I'll install a fresh VM and see if I can reproduce it.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting, I'll look into it one of these days.

The user base is rather small so it's possible this bug was not caught; also people use their PCs less and less for playing music which might explain the lack of observations.

So it is, never play those horrible MP3 files hurting my ears and don`t use VLC. I`m using XINE.

So long Smile

Can you try the VLC from here and let me know if you see any improvements?
