I really don't know what you should expect since I didn't create the input plugin that plays ALAC files. All I did was make a Winamp compatible encoder.

i gotcha... so if i understand you correctly now, ur saying that if there is any xfer of tags during a transcode, from one format to the next, it is not handled by the encoder, but rather by the input plugin (that also handles playback) for that new format, once the new file is created, and the encoder phase of the operation is complete, and over and done with.

sound right?

my confusion was that i just figured the encoder did more than just create the new tag or container as a blank, but i can see now the elegance of doing it this way.
