Windows Media Player Tag Support Extender (WMPTSE) is a plug-in to Windows Media Player to allow more tags support than the default WMA + ID3 within the player.

It supports version 9.x, 10.x and 11.0 of Windows Media Player.

The current version (1.3) supports Vorbis comment, APEv2 and FLAC and MPEG4.

Supported Tag Formats[edit]

Additional tagging formats may be supported through a plug-in API (known as WMPTSE API)

Supported Filetypes[edit]

  • FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec(*.flac)
  • APE - Monkey's Audio (*.ape)
  • MPC - MusePack (*.mpc)
  • WavPack (*.wv)
  • OptimFROG (*.ofr)
  • Ogg Vorbis - Ogg files (*.ogg) - READ-ONLY
  • AAC - Advanced Audio Coding (*.aac) - READ-ONLY
  • M4A,MP4 - MPEG4 Audio (*.m4a) - READ-ONLY


WMPTSE provide options to add tagging based on file extension.

It allows tagging in files who usually don't support it, such as exotic (but useful) tagging of AC3, DTS and LPCM files, or less useful like .txt, JPEG file tagging and more.

Tag support is pluggable. Each "tag support dll" responds to the WMPTSE API.
