Description From 2008-01-07 18:10:17
easytag-2.1-alt1
id3lib-3.8.3-alt5

Very often you get files with tags in CP1251, a non-standard encoding for tags.

Fortunately, easytag is able to read fields in non-standard encodings -- menu
"Scanner" > "Process Fields" > "Options" > "ID3 Tag Settings" > "Use non
standard character set for reading ID3 tags".

Usually this feature works, but it doesn't work for some files, e.g.,
http://baza.com/audio/2005-live-in-san-francisco/04-vse-napominaet-o-tebe.mp3 .

Probably, the difference is that in those files the tags that are not decoded
correctly are ID3 v1.1 tags. Compare:

A file whose tags easytag decodes correctly:
http://baza.com/audio/seriously-new-records/manjaki--020905.mp3

$ mpgtx -i manjaki--020905.mp3 
Skipped -2 zeroes at start of file
mpgtx: AT EOF - please stop me!
mmm, this file does not start with a pack, offset: -2 
use the desperate_mode switch as the first option -X to search for a header in
the whole file!
if you want to force the operation. May yield to an endless loop if no valid
header is found!
Does not even begin with a 00 00 01 xx sequence!

No success at all.

$ 

-- as you see, there is no ID3 v2.3.0 tag for the title here, only an ID3 v1.1
tag. So I think the problem is in reading ID3 v1.1 tags.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start easytag, set the above mentioned option ("Scanner" > "Process Fields" >
"Options" > "ID3 Tag Settings" > "Use non standard character set for reading ID3
tags") to Windows-1251, save options, exit.
2. Download, for example,
http://baza.com/audio/2005-live-in-san-francisco/04-vse-napominaet-o-tebe.mp3
3. Run easytag on it.
Actual Results:  
The title tag is not decoded and shown correctly: Âñ¸ íàïîìèíàåò î òåáå

Expected Results:  
It is decoded correctly.
