Reply to "Can you have too much metadata?"
[quote=paultaylor]I don't believe so, and certainly in the case of Flac the metadata is all stored after the audio. IN the case of ID3 formats such as Wav/Aiff and MP3 the metadata is stored at the start of the files but audio players can just read the header to inform them of the metadata size and then skip over straight to the audio. Textual metadata is so small compared to the audio it is irrelevent. I suppose the only possible metadata that could have any effect would be really large uncompressed binary data such as cover image in .bmp format. But SongKong always uses JPG/PNG.[/quote]
