Nils and all,
As a derivative of RIFF, WAV files can be tagged with
metadata in the INFO chunk. In addition, WAV files can embed
Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) data. Applications may
not handle this extra information or may expect to see it in
a particular place. Although the RIFF specification requires
that applications ignore chunks they do not recognize, some
applications are confused by additional chunks.[citation
Is it possible these "standards" could be among those the
courts humbly bid that Microsoft open to the uncouth gaze of
slobbering masses? (Providing court-ordered data on file
formats used internally is an area that seems to attract
the most lackadaisical and error prone MS employees.)
Otherwise, there is plenty of code to study.
This parser reveals what data structures it expects...
if you speak C.
Here is a metadata parser/writer for diverse file types.
