MP3Tagger - an easy way to manage your MP3 files and their tags
MP3Tagger enables you to edit the tags in your MP3 files, add artwork to
the files, and rearrange them into folders. Within an MP3 file is
a set of tags. There appear to be three versions which are described
in detail at www.id3.org The
program recognises the version 1 tags, written as the last 128 bytes of a
file, the version 2.2 used by iTunes which has 3 letter tag IDs, and the
version 2.3 which has 4-letter tag IDs. The only tags that are normally
displayed are the Artist, Album, Title, Track Number, Year and Genre tags.
If there is a picture within the MP3 it is displayed in a separate
window. All non-displayed tags are preserved and can be viewed by right-clicking
on the MP3 information panel.
To obtain information about CDs, the internet is searched but if you have
your own CDs you can build your own track lists.
It is assumed that your MP3s are arranged in the following structure where
<..> represents a folder
<Disc> may be omitted
usually in the form "XX Title" where XX is the track number.
When you first start MP3Tagger you will be asked to specify the names of
three folders, the MP3 Library folder, the Artwork folder and the Track List
A track list is a text file which has the following format for the records in the file:
Artist: <The name of the Artist or "Various" if the album is a compilation>
Album: <The name of the Album>
Year: <The year the recording was made>
Genre: <The type of music>
01 Title of Track 1 [: Artist name for Track 1 if different from the Artist: tag above]
99 Title of Track 99 [: Artist name for Track 99 if different from the Artist: tag above]
