Adding metadata tags to wav files

Rodolfo Medina
Hi.

I successfully add metadata tags (album, artist, title, genre...) to mp3 files
using ffmpeg:

 $ ffmpeg -i input.mp3 -c copy -metadata title="Yesterday" output.mp3

.  When I try to do the same with wav format, the tags are then properly shown
by ffmpeg itself, but they aren't by common media players.  Has anyone ever
experimented that?

Thanks,

Rodolfo

Common media players do not support riff metadata.

So what are they supported by?

Thanks,
