Default 'Test: Flacs / Oggs / Album Art / Tags

So basically I love OGGs and FLACs. Sometimes they seemed to work and sometimes they did not. So I decided to do some tests to get to the bottom of it. Turns out its pretty simple, goes like this:

On the P3, under settings you can choose to connect to your PC via UMS or MTP.

Basically when using MTP;
FLACs - Tags are not read. No Album art. Plays fine but only findable through folder view. Now playing screen shows album / artist as 'unknown.'
OGGs - Tags are not read. No Album art. Plays fine but only findable through folder view. Now playing screen shows album / artist as 'unknown.'

When using UMS;
FLACs - Tags read fine. Album artwork works.
OGGs - Tags read fine. Album art does not work.

In all cases I drag n dropped the files over. Its possible using Emodio / MediaMonkey / Winamp / WMP may yield different or better results. Also in both cases I tried including a M3U file in the album folder. For some reason I thought this would help when using MTP mode. It didn't.

I didn't test WMAs this time but off the top of my head they work just like FLACs, ok as long as you use UMS.


Which brings me to my next question, can anybody explain a benefit of using MTP? I think its got something to do with playlists or something, I'm not quite sure.
