Thread: Is there a way to alter an mp3's metadata for it's time/length?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a way to alter an mp3's metadata for it's time/length?

    I combined two mp3 files into one using VLC and the whole thing plays but it still shows as being only the length of the first song. So, the mp3 actually plays for 6:12, but it shows as being 3:37.

    Have you looked at using Easytag? It does a lot though I must admit not trying to change the length of time an MP3 file runs. You can install EasyTag from YaST / Software Management.

    Thank You,

    Audacity has a menu selection called "Tracks" and under that there is an "Edit Label" choice that I believe will do what you want.

    Might be a bit overkill, but I recommend →MP3 Diags.
