Configure WAV Tags to use ASCII (instead of UTF-8)

MediaMonkey saves WAV tags in UTF-8 format by default. This is useful in most cases since it means that ‘regular text’ in WAV tags is readable by any application, and ‘foreign text’ can also be saved. The downside is that other applications may be incapable of reading the foreign characters in WAV tags saved in UTF-8 format.

For users who prefer that ASCII always be used, even though it can’t represent foreign characters, the lines below should be added to the MediaMonkey.ini file:

  1. Close MediaMonkey (so that it doesn’t overwrite any of the changes)
  2. Back up the MediaMonkey.ini file.
  3. Open the MediaMonkey.ini file inside a text editor such as Notepad
  4. Add the following lines:
  5. Save the MediaMonkey.ini file.
  6. Start MediaMonkey
