    Winamp and Metadata

    I don't suppose anyone knows how to get Winamp to import metadata into its Library? I have some wav files that I made with SoundForge 8.0. Basically Winamp just seems to ignore the existing metadata in the file.
    Thanks,

    PS Even though I got Winamp to stop phoning home I'm still open to any suggestions on audio players that can handle metadat easily.

    It should be able to do, according to this guide to General Preferences - look for the section marked Media Importing.

    Thanks Leif,

    I'd already looked at that page. I tried different settings, both smart and simple - they don't work. Smart ends up using part of the track name as author and simple ignores author completely. Rather than just importing the metadata in the file Winamp seems to be interpreting it.
