I have spend some time to test the device with different ID3 character encodings.
The character encoding schemes were: ID3v2.4-UTF-8, ID3v2.3-UTF-16, ID3v2.3-ISO-8859-1.
As programs have been used:
foobar2000 v0.9.6.9 (ID3v2.4-UTF-8 default / my preferred audio player / (mass)tagger / organizer / converter GUI)
Mp3tag v2.44 (ID3v2.4-UTF-8, ID3v2.3-UTF-16, ID3v2.3-ISO-8859-1)
The accuracy of used tags was tested by:
MP3 Diags 0.99.06.044
I have also used the title for quite some strange characters.
Fortunately, most of these characters are displayed correctly.
A few pictures to facilitate:
My summary of the firmware revision V01.01.05F for the Clip + :
(and also as confirmation of the statement by d_headshot)
the Disc number will never appear
leading zeros will not be displayed
slashes/strokes will not be displayed
The result is a misrepresentation of the track numbers.
“01” displayed as “1”
“1/1” displayed as “11”
“01/01” displayed as “101”
Over a bug fix, I’d be very happy, because this behavior but reduces the enjoyment of the fine device.
With best regards,
