I don't know if this is within the purview of Tag, but it would be a handy feature for one of your applications - the ability to determine the ReplayGain information for FLACs one already has. Basically, if wanted to go through my FLAC archive and add replay gain information without re-ripping everything. A google search turned up the following webpage, which might help with this question, but seeing that I know nothing about programming, I can't say for sure: ... -play.html

You can do this currently with the command line tool metaflac. Rip obviously does this when ripping, but I haven't written a tool to do this since metaflac is part of the official FLAC tools.

Good to know. Looks like I'm teaching myself metaflac command line stuff today.

Apparently command line stuff is not as straight forward as I thought it was. While the commands make sense, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to actually run the metaflac program. Any help would be appreciated.
