WMP Tag Plus 2.5

Audio plug-in that integrates seamlessly into Windows Media Player to provide library and tagging support for additional music formats. These formats include FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, Musepack and MPEG-4. WMP Tag Plus allows you to also use the Advanced Tag Editor to edit the tags for newly supported formats. Windows Media Player 12 lacks the Advanced Tag Editor, but there you can use the new tag editor of the Windows Media Player Plus! plug-in to get the same result. WMP Tag Plus is currently the only Windows Media Player tag support plug-in that is still up-to-date, actively supported and fully compatible with the latest versions of Windows and Windows Media Player. Other tag support plug-ins don't allow seeking during playback of newly supported formats either. Seeking is no issue at all when using WMP Tag Plus. WMP Tag Plus is written for Windows Media Player 11 or higher.

What's new in this version:
New: support for reading/writing star ratings in FLAC and Ogg Vorbis files.
New: support for reading/writing star ratings in MPEG-4 files (Windows Media Player 11 only). This is compatible with the native MPEG-4 star rating support in Windows Media Player 12.
New: when adding new extensions in WMP Tag Plus settings, the user is now asked to restart Windows Media Player for the changes to take effect. After the restart, WMP Tag Plus will scan all library locations again, so that existing files with the new extensions get added to the media library.
New: the aforementioned scan of all library locations is also performed when WMP Tag Plus has just been installed, and has also been added to the existing Refresh song tags scan.
Fixed: broken plug-in functionality on Windows 8.1 after installation of several Windows Updates. Special thanks to rv2798 and dynaxer for reporting.
Fixed: with WMP Tag Plus disabled, the usual warning at Windows Media Player startup didn't appear if the Comodo Firewall software was installed.
To prevent possible loss of all tags in a music file (as caused by an overzealous Windows Media Player, especially on Windows 8), WMP Tag Plus now ignores all tag delete requests for files whose duration isn't known yet in the library. Such files can be 'fixed' by using Refresh song tags in settings, after which all tag writes are allowed again.
