With Windows 10 comes FLAC support (finally!), but I've noticed that when I load FLAC music into the Windows Media Player library, all of the songs show as having an "unknown year" as well as the Contributing Artist section appearing blank.
All my files are correctly tag (used MP3tag which supports many audio formats). From a bit of reading on the internet it seems to be caused by WMP not correctly reading the tagging information of the FLAC files. When trying to retrieve the year of a song, the player tries to read from the YEAR tag of the FLAC file, but FLAC files DON'T use YEAR as a tag, but instead they use the DATE tag, so the player is trying to read something that doesn't exist in the file and I'm assuming that's the same problem with the CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS tag as well.
This seems to be an oversight by the developers who must've assumed FLAC files use all of the same tags as other audio formats. Does anyone know of a solution for this in order to get the media player to read correctly?
