Thread: Mp3 Tag Program.

  1. #1

    Default Mp3 Tag Program.

    Dear all,
    I would like to ask you to help me with a good mp3 tag problem.
    I have a lot of mp3 tracks and I would like to correct/add/remove fields in the tags.
    It would be great if that program can connect to the internet to suggest me corrections in the tags I already have.

    Best Regards
    Alex

    I use easytag (gtk app) which is in the packman repo. There's also kid3 (KDE/Qt) but I don't like it at all, even though I'm a KDE user.

    edit: Maybe also have a look at musicbrainz Picard tagger.

    If you are doing it from the CLI or a script, there is id3v2, a Perl program.

    I also recommend EasyTag. Lot's of features, and an easy to understand UI.

    By far puddletag is the most intuitive and feature complete tagger i have used to date... suggest you give it a gander as well...

    Direct link to screenshots which do a nice job illustrating its feature set.

    Easytag does exactly what I need. My question now is how to disable the autocorrection function it has (all the tracks are marked red when are autocorrected). I want to have full control of my tracks and not have any kind of autocomplion and auto editing?

    I unselect every single option in preferences but still the autocompletion is turned on. What to do?

    Try deselecting 'ID3 Tag Settings > Automatically convert old...', but easytag marks everything red that doesn't follow the settings, eg if you select "write id3v2" it marks every file which only has v1. The way easytag works it's good if you want all your files tagged with the same parameters, if you're looking for a program that only changes field data while keeping the current tag version, encoding etc. intact easytag is probably not the best choice.

    Until you confirm to save nothing is actually changed though, the red marking just means it would change something if you decide to save.

    In my experience most programs with tagging abilities (especially audio players) are hardwired to specific tag versions etc., if you modify one track with said programs they usually silently change the tag structure to their liking without even telling you...

    Since no one, understandably, has mentioned it, let me mention a non-linux program [ Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...) ]. It one of the few reasons I still have XP running in Virtualbox (and I'm pretty sure I ran it under wine long ago). So if your familiar with either it should be considered. You can specifiy tag format and delete formats you don't want. For example I delete all id3v1 tags after writing v2. You can tag from filenames or rename files based on tag. It has scripting, called "actions", so, for example, to fix podcast file names I created an action containing "$right(%_filename%,4)-$mid(%_filename%,6,2)-$mid(%_filename%,8,2)" one click, all fixed.

    With apologies to the other programs above (and I have not tried puddletag --yet) it really is the most feature rich *and easy to use* program I've found. And yes, i'm looking for, and would prefer a native solution; which won't be mp3tag as the author has no plans for a linux version.

    Puddletag is based on Mp3tag, only made specifically for linux. So if you like mp3tag i'm sure you'd feel right at home with puddletag as it's basically the same thing. Below is text copied from their site which explains the similarities between the two taggers.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++

    puddletag is just a tag editor. Although it's likely better than what you're used to (unless you've used Mp3tag, in which case it's kinda like what you're used to).

    What it is
    puddletag is an audio tag editor (primarily created) for GNU/Linux similar to the Windows program, Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

    The usual tag editor features are supported like extracting tag information from filenames, renaming files based on their tags by using patterns and basic tag editing.

    Then there're Functions, which can do things like replace text, trim it, do case conversions, etc. Actions can automate repetitive tasks. You can import your QuodLibet library, lookup tags using Amazon (including cover art), Discogs (does cover art too!), FreeDB and MusicBrainz. There's quite a bit more, but I've reached my comma quota.

    Supported formats: ID3v1, ID3v2 (mp3), MP4 (mp4, m4a, etc.), VorbisComments (ogg, flac), Musepack (mpc), Monkey's Audio (.ape) and WavPack (wv).

    Why it is
    Keeping an XP partition just for Mp3tag just wasn't feasible anymore.

    How it's different
    To Mp3tag, not that much. It has more or less the same UI and functionality. Skim the menus section to get an overview of the differences.

    If you've only used other GNU/Linux taggers before, puddletag's sure to be different from what you're used to.
