How do I set Windows Explorer in Windows 7 to display metadata / tags (Artist, Song Title, etc.) of Ogg Vorbis (.OGG) files when in 'Details' view?

@rjnagle That question is a possible duplicate of this one. See my comment on this answer to my question (or my edit to that answer, if it has been approved). –  galacticninja Sep 12 '12 at 7:54
    
I didn't probe deeply enough to realize you were the OP on the question. I thought you were loading up the answer with info on a product you were affiliated with. I still think the comparison info link is a bit advertisement like, but if you want to put it through again, I'll approve it. Please accept my apologies. –  jonsca Sep 12 '12 at 8:29
    
@jonsca I put that edit to AdamKessel's answer to help others, like rjnagle, who are looking for a freeware solution. That edit is mainly to provide info and links to show that there is a freeware version, hence the comparison info. Is it possible to "un-reject" that edit suggestion of mine? –  galacticninja Sep 12 '12 at 10:47
    
@galacticninja I have no way to unreject it, regrettably. I will try flagging the answer, but I don't think a mod would be able to reverse it either. –  jonsca Sep 12 '12 at 10:50

dBpoweramp Music Converter with the OGG decoder installed fixes this problem. It is freeware.

Please note that the file download in the link above is the trial version of the dBpoweramp 'Reference' version. It converts to dBpoweramp 'Free' after 21 days. The free version still has the metadata display feature in the 'Details' view.

There is a more simple way now, using the property handler for ogg files:

Taglib Property Handler (open source)

enter image description here

TLPH is based on TagLib Audio Meta-Data Library. About the latter:

Currently it supports both ID3v1 and ID3v2 for MP3 files, Ogg Vorbis comments and ID3 tags and Vorbis comments in FLAC, MPC, Speex, WavPack TrueAudio, WAV, AIFF, MP4 and ASF files.
