Huh? aac doesn't support metadata?
It certainly looks like it does:
ffmpeg -i "Track 1.wav" -metadata track=1 -metadata title="Test Track"
-acodec aac -ab 128000 -strict experimental Track_1.aac
Input #0, wav, from 'Track 1.wav':
Duration: 00:02:01.88, bitrate: 1411 kb/s
Stream #0.0: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 1411 kb/s
Output #0, adts, to 'Track_1.aac':
title : Test Track
track : 1
encoder : Lavf52.73.0
Stream #0.0: Audio: aac, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 128 kb/s
Input #0, aac, from 'Track_1.aac':
Duration: 00:01:44.95, bitrate: 128 kb/s
Stream #0.0: Audio: aac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16, 128 kb/s
So I guess the question is whether the aac encoder is creating the
metadata, or is ffprobe not reading it?
And shouldn't EasyTag be able to read it if the metadata were there?
