Use iTunes to open AlbumWrap files Apps
After some frustration with a file sent to me by a friend on a PC, I discovered that iTunes natively supports MP3s that have been 'wrapped' up using AlbumWrap, whereas Windows Media Player dosn't have a clue what to do.

AlbumWrap itself is a new one to me, but because it still has a .mp3 suffix, it can confuse some players.

That's weird because I have some ALBW mp3's that I can't open in iTunes.

I just use Album Wrap Extractor (beta OSX) to seperate the tracks. It would be a pretty cool idea (Album Wrap) except that the extracor doesn't support any long file names. So if the names of the files are saved as artist-album-songname.mp3 or something, it doesn't work properly. All it will do when it extracts is overwrite whatever the first file is over and over again and you end up with just one file.

It would be easier if people just zipped or stuffed full albums.
