Media Library / FLAC / Category tag error

-Winamp 5.621-

I use SMART VIEW and sort my albums via CATEGORY (also called Grouping or Contentgroup). I have used mp3tag to make the tags with simple names like ROCK / SOFT / CLASSICAL etc.

All of my MP3 files and M4A files show up under the proper Smart View Category using the Contentgroup tag.

However, the FLAC files do not show up under Smart View (except for the winamp default Audio smart view category [which is set to show all music]). This says to me that WinAmp is not reading the Contentgroup tag as Category (as MP3 and M4A do). However, it will read a "CATEGORY" tag (a non-standard tag that I have not used in any other software) as Category, so one has to be made up for them [I know this can be done with WinAmp].

Not sure why MP3/M4A can recognise CONTENTGROUP tag for category, but FLAC only recognises CATEGORY tag. It feels wasteful to have to impliment a new tag for my library, which has taken me up to a week to re-edit just to categorise.

ELSE this is the best media player hands down.
