Some of my music files have Chinese or Japanese ID3 tags, and they turn to be messy code in my
Music+Videos, while on my laptop
foobar2000 displays them right. Should I modify ID3 version to solve this problem? If yes, which version is suitable?
ID3v2 will solve this problem. To be more specific, it must be ID3v2 with reversion v2.3, reversion v2.4 is both incompatible with
Windows 8 and
Windows Phone 8.
Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player cannot handle ID3v2.4 tags in any version, up to and including Windows 8 / Windows Media Player 12. Windows can understand ID3v2 up to and including version 2.3.
