Default Re: defined APE tag keys/frames

Thank you for your reply.

- FILE
Does the location of the file need to be stored in the tags of the
same file? What exact type of location are we talking about since it
has to be a URL?
I've never seen any file with this tag field. File paths in APEv2 are expressed as URIs like
Quote:
file:/directory/file
file:./relativedirectory/filename
file:./filename
I found it a bit strange that the location had to be stored in the file itself. Would there be any reason to do so?

- CATALOG
Just any kind of catalog id/number of any kind/type of catalog?
Wouldn't the type of catalog (e.g. by which company or website
(imdb.com or something)) need to be known?
This is the EAN/UPC or the labels catalog number for this media.
Specifically the labels catalog number you think?

- MEDIA
I don't get this one, what is it that you want to have stored in this
tag? Is it like the WWWAUDIOSOURCE (WOAS) frame in ID3 [3]? WOAS is
used to point to the official webpage for the source of the audio
file; e.g. if the audio is "extracted" from a movie. This doesn't
explain the Source Media Number/Total Media Number and Source Time
though.
I think Klemm means the media type here, e.g. "CD", "DCD". Source media number would always be 1 - except for double CDs or CD sets. Don't know what Source Time is good for.
Sound reasonable, stupid of me that I didn't think of this option.

Btw: You can find the APEv2 page from Frank Klemm still in Google's chache.
Aye, I thought about this as well and made a mirror of the page just in case. Since Musepack.net is now one of the kind of official Musepack sites, shouldn't this info be hosted on this site?
