In FB2k mobile there seem some new ordering and search options like:
Compilation
Contributing Artist
Conductor
Chorus
Orchestra
Soloists
Instrument
Period
Type
Style
etc.

What is the corresponding MP3 or Vorbis tag for that? Please document!

Yes, it is somenthing I'm really looking for... I've made some test trying tagging some of this custom field but without lucky.

The only thing's that I can verify it's the "type" that is referred to the encoding of the file Mp3/FLAC.

Really like to understand how this will work!

Ditto on the documentation. I need to know both the tagging to use for fields, and whether a certain tag is implemented. A simple documentation of the tagging fields would take care of both needs.

My next idea was to "Use the source, Luke!" to find out, thinking foobar2000 mobile were Open Source. Couldn't find the sources, however.
So please: Either source code or proper documentation!

Is it possible that simply its not implemented? I've made other tests and everything fail!

If it's only to wait... We wait! But really a simple answer can solve !

One is found.

"Contributing Artist" are Artists other than the first in the "Artist" field.

eg. if I have the Artist field populated with "Anna Netrebko; Rolando Villazon" than "Rolando Villazon" is a contributing artist

This work for FLAC and OPUS... Anyone have any info about others fields?

I think that something is changed... becausa I'm made some more test and everything now seem working... I've tagged in this way in foobar for PC and the image is how look like in Mp3tag, I've that all tags work in the Windows10 and Android app

I found one album that meets the "Compilation" criteria: The Artist name is "Various Artists". Seems this implementation is somewhat stupid.
Foobar2000 mobile seems one of the projects that refuses to give its users helpful documentation. Yes, I'm a "self tag man" ;-)

Is it that difficult to write a documentation concerning the mp3tags?
Or are they just not yet implemented?
By now:
style
chorus
orchestra
soloists
instrument

don't work!

Other Player on PC (e.g. Audirvana or foobar for pc recognize them)

Please, developer - just one comment!

Please read the whole Thread... I think that it was fully discovered! Maybe I'm using Opus files and they are different from mp3...
