i tried clementine
it happily adds and edits id3 tags on ogg files, one has to rename
the file to .mp3 though.
So no problem as noone would be doing that .... if it wherent for a
small detail
clementine does not play ogg files or at least not the one i just
created that is unless one renames it to mp3, in which case it plays
why do i somehow sense that iam not the first one finding this
solution to play "unsupported" files
