Foobar2000_Logo.png

This page lists all ID3v2 tag frames natively supported by foobar2000 as of version 1.1.18. The 'Field Name' column indicates the name to be used in the foobar2000 'Properties' or 'Masstagger' window. The 'ID3v2.3 Frame' and 'ID3v2.4 Frame' columns indicates in which ID3v2 frame the value will be stored.

Note that foobar2000 0.9 does not write ID3v2.3 tags; the ID3v2.3 Frame column indicates how foobar2000 reads this version of the standard.

Notes:
  1. All non-native supported field names will be stored in the TXXX (User defined text information) frame except for field names starting with "WWW" which will be stored in WXXX (User defined URL link frame) frames.
  2. foobar2000 1.1.6 and later stores ALBUM ARTIST fields name values in the TPE2 frame by default for compatibility with other players. Before 1.1.6 the BAND fields name was mapped to the TPE2 frame instead, in accordance to the ID3 specifications. In 1.1.6 and later specification compliance can be regained through an advanced preferences option.
  3. Field is unofficial. Usage of those fields breaks the standard but should be tolerated by most applications.
