Default Thai support

we have a Clip here, curious which players would have better Thai support, or is this just a function of the tags? I've tried several rippers/tags with no luck so far.

I like the way the Clip sounds tho!

this thread:

thread link

says that Thai language is supported, but you have to rename the firmware to have a T at the end and use unicode ID3 tags (not sure how to do that).

here's more on the firmware suffix codes:

here's a unicode ID3 converter app which might help you:

it runs in java so it should be platform independent. i have not tried it yet.

Nice, thanks for this. I've tried all the Unicode ID3 tags, with no luck. Maybe a firmware /switch will do it. will check this out. thanks again.

Thai works fine for me, you have to be using a unicode ID3 editor. Almost all modern MP3 players and MP3 playing phones can display Thai correctly, but you have to be writing the ID3 in Unicode format. Setting Windows to run non-Unicode programs in Thai and then using a non-Unicode ID3 editor will not work. You have to be using Unicode.

Rant: Some MP3 playing phones sold for the Thai market actually don't use Unicode because they know that most Thai's don't understand how Unicode works. Nokia was the very first fully Unicode compliant phone, and most (all?) Thai's end up complaining that Nokia phones can't handle MP3 tags correctly, and the way to "fix" the problem is to delete the tag and just display the filename.

Any ripping software that will tag Unicode ID3? I use EAC - which doesn't look like it supports Unicode, and Easy CDDA Extractor which doesn't support Thai.

Have a recommendation on an Unicode ID3 Editor?

Thanks again

I want to try dbpoweramp again. thanks

as far as tag editors I came up with these:

Mp3tag
http://mp3tag.de/en/

Tag&Rename
http://www.softpointer.com/tr.htm

Update:
Do not see any option for Unicode ID3 in dbpoweramp. sorry I didn't see your link in the first post.

dbpoweramp sees the Thai as junk. this sure is tricky.

See my warning in that second linked thread...please do NOT use the "T" firmware, this is a TEST version only and may result in more problems, which I don't care to be responsible for.

You don't need to use "T" to get the Thai character set. "P" should be the correct version (Pacific) and also defaults to MSC USB mode...which of course better supports open source OS like Linux...

Mp3tag has UTF-16 id3v2.3 tag support AND permits batch reprocessing of existing MP3s. Make sure if you use it that you set the Options to remove the existing v1 tags and replace the existing v2.3 tags and you "should" be on your way.

Make sure you're using one of the more recent versions of dbpoweramp. Also, in your screenshot, are you typing in the song names by yourself? If it's downloaded online, the person who made the entry might not have used Unicode.

[edit] You also said that dbpoweramp sees the ID3 as junk, that suggests that there was existing ID3 information in the file. In which case, you'll need one of thsoe Unicode converters that you can specify the source code page to convert the existing ID3 tag into Unicode.
