ID3v2.3 genre tag upper / lower case


Posted Oct 11, 2014, 2:05 pm
I can set any value in the ID3v2.3 genre tag using the command line tool. All my tag values are CAPITAL LETTERS only. ID3 Editor converts e.g. "GRUNGE" to "Grunge" just because this specific value is part of the ancient and for ID3v2.3 irrelevant ID3v1 genre specification. The result is that some ID3v2.3 genres are CAPTTAL LETTERS while others are not. This is not pretty.

Any idea what to do?

Are the genre entries that stay capital non-standard? As there is no setting that converts ID3 V2 genre from what is entered. Also does the same thing happen in the GUI?
