I use foobar2000 on my PC to convert my FLAC music library to various lossy compressed formats : MP3, MP4A, OGG, WMA.
All my song files embed the album and song artists, album and song titles, genre, year, track number and count tags as usual.
All of these tags are correctly handled and displayed by foobar2000 on my PC.
However I have an issue with the same WMA files on my Huawei Ascend Y550 smartphone running Android KitKat 4.4.4 and foobar2000 1.0.91.
The genre information is not extracted from the WMA files. So, when I list my music by genre, all the WMA songs appear to have an (Unknown Genre)... All the other tags seem to be correctly extracted.
