I need to know in case Id3v2.4 tag is in the end of the file (as it is
optional to keep it in beginning or end), how does an mp3 decoder come to
know that it is reading tag information not audio data?
Please answer the same question in case of ID3v1 tag too. Do all the mp3
decoders look for id3v1 tag at last 128 bytes of the file? or they just hit
some data they can not understand and stop playing??

Thanks in anticipation!
