As for the lyrics, will it pull them from the net or get them from iTunes,WMP and so forth? It would be nice if it downloaded the lyrics but all in all you have created a very nice app.

xwidget, thanks for replying my email.

XDeskCover read ID3V2 when ID3V1 not exists.

It doesn't work for me. my XDC always use only ID3v1.

If I remove all ID3v1, XDC doesn't view v2 tag at all.

See here : 20100321193104.th.jpg

Does XDC support Japanese and Korean tag?

1. XDC will add an option of read tag "ID3v1->ID3v2" or "ID3v2->ID3v1" in next version

2. XDC can support Japanese or Korean tag

XDC can support Unicode tag when player is WMPlayer or iTunes, because the foobar's remote-control plugin not support unicode.

what player are you used? thanks.

I'm using Winamp.

2. XDC can support Japanese or Korean tag

When I'm using Winamp 5.572 :

- When mouse over at XDC icon, can view Japanese tags, but not on XDC skin

20100322124743.th.jpg

When I'm using WMPlayer 12 :

- When mouse over at XDC icon, cannot view Japanese tags, same as XDC skin

- Not show embedded cover or folder.jpg or cover.jpg

- Update : After re-check... XDC shows embedded cover or folder.jpg or cover.jpg for certain mp3, but some of them XDC won't show.

I'm using Windows7 x64, regional settings set to Japanese..

There's also another user from another forum that having problems viewing Unicode tags..

I guess this is another bug..

When I 'Enabled mp3 Embedded Cover' options, XDC will export the embedded cover to the folder that I've set (G:\My Mp3's\#xdesk cover).

But sometimes the exported cover is somehow corrupted.

The cover embedded in the mp3 is not corrupt, just the one that XDC export.

What the hell? Porting my skins to that CAD clone, giving no credit and without ssaying something to me? I don´t like that. The funny thing was that in one of my skins on the gallery says that the original author was "El guincho" the name of the artist of the song played on the preview, lol, and on most of thems the contact was a chinese GUI forum very well known by stealing other people work.

I could say that the 90% of the skins of that gallery are (bad) ports or (bad) mods made without permission of original authors. If I were you I will seriosly take care of this before it becomes a trouble...

Anyways, in the case you gived credit to me, I would never allow my skins to be used on a CAD clone. ¬¬"
