I happen to listen to a lot of music from around the world (mainly Asian), and I find that Windows Media Player and iTunes does a terrible job with tags and file names not in English. Any suggestions for good alternatives? (I use Windows, Mac OSX, and Android)

For Windows, I recommend Foobar 2000: http://www.foobar2000.org/



I haven't had any issues with Japanese text unlike iTunes which is hit-or-miss at times when I try to edit ID3 tags for Japanese music.

For OSX, my friend uses this: http://mplayerx.org/

Others you can try for OSX: (Going through Google.)

Android... ugh, I'm not too familiar with Android players, but here's a few I've found:
And, for all three, there is VLC.

I haven't used this as a media player and playing back videos has been very iffy in iOS and Windows. Music playback is not an issue but I have not tried editing song tags for it.​
