Summary0014714: FLAC Metadata: Original Artist inconsistancy across taggers
DescriptionSome taggers and music players Tag Original Artists as "ORIGARTIST" for the "Original Artist" field, but MediaMonkey uses "ORIGINALARTIST" for the "Original Artist" field for FLAC files

We should read/write both and add option to add exception in INI file for tag field.

1. Write and read both but prefer "ORIGINALARTIST" in case they are different, but fill info from "ORIGARTIST" if "ORIGINALARTIST" is missing

2. Add INI exception for FLAC METADATA either as separate setting for format in terms: BOTH (Default), ORIGARTIST, ORIGINALARTIST
Steps To Reproduce- For testing use MP3(with TOPE) to FLAC
- FLAC file without Original Artist field
Additional Information
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

Original Artist is gray zone. Several implementations in FLAC Vorbis Comments is done by few apps it is not possible to cover all.
As pointed out in

It would be best to leave it as is. Few apps decided to follow other naming but Conclusion is that there is no standard so as MM is recognized as one I would not changed a thing.

MM5 Support Extended Tags so implementations from one app can be easily Read in MM5.

Pushed to 5.1, but I doubt that it will ever be solved/standardized
