Does Poweramp pull from id3v1 or id3v2 tags?

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm how PA pulls artist info?

I have a track that seems to pull the id3v1 info but most of my other tracks the id3v2 info is used.

Is there any specific rhyme or reason?

I've seen issues with other player software when there's multiple tag versions in files. I used MP3Tag to eliminate all MP3 tag versions except for ID3v2.3 and now all is well.

PA can read both types to cater for legacy files. If there is a clash of differing contents though, I don't know which tag would take priority. Logically I guess v2 would make most sense (as it's the newest format) but I've a feeling that v1 might be read first and thus v2 is not processed if a v1 tag has already been detected. @maxmp would be able to confirm the sequence though.

As long as the tags do not differ it doesn't matter, but if for some reason they don't match and you have complications and it would be worth correcting the files as @w3wilkes suggests above.
