    How are you tagging your WAV files?

    Very few applications support tags on WAV files.

    Check that you have “process m3u” set to Yes in the web config, as well as “process xml”, and that your “My Music” folder is one of your music directories.

    That should do it, so long as iTunes is where you expect the tags to come from.

    OK – I must learn not to assume things 😳

    I assumed tags within files – not the same information held outside of the files. Sorry about that.

    Yeah, I looked at seeing what tag into was there for wav files. Turns out that there is plenty of room for metainfo in riff/wav files, just that there aren’t any standards for how to encode it. Consequently, nobody bothers reading them. Kinda too bad…
