Re: Lack of tags on live shows, any reason why?

I don't even know, or care, which files I've downloaded have tags, or how they're used. Believe it or not, I don't feel as though I'm missing anything (guess you have to lose something to miss it). All that said, if somebody can post a link to a tutorial showing how to properly tag flac files please do.

Tags are very useful, especially for people who use their files over a streaming audio system.

People should not however worry about uploading shows without tags. Most shows I have downloaded over the last years do not have them. Those that do are almost always edited in some manner or the other.

I add tags because my Squeezebox system would not function without them. It is not that hard a process to add them. And 'old farts' such as I can learn to do it if they have the desire.
