mid3v2 - audio tag editor similar to 'id3v2' SYNOPSIS
mid3v2 [options] filename ... DESCRIPTION
mid3v2 is a Mutagen-based replacement for id3lib's id3v2. It supports ID3v2.4 and more frames; it also does not have the numerous bugs that plague id3v2. This program exists mostly for compatibility with programs that want to tag files using id3v2. For a more usable interface, we recommend Ex Falso. OPTIONS
-q, --quiet Be quiet: do not mention file operations that perform the user's request. Warnings will still be printed. -v, --verbose Be verbose: state all operations performed. This is the opposite of --quiet. This is the default. -f, --list-frames Display all supported ID3v2.3/2.4 frames and their meanings. -L, --list-genres List all ID3v1 numeric genres. These can be used to set TCON frames, but it is not recommended. -l, --list List all tags in the files. The output format is not the same as id3v2's; instead, it is easily parsable and readable. Some tags may not have human-readable representations. --list-raw List all tags in the files, in raw format. Although this format is nominally human-readable, it may be very long if the tag contains embedded binary data. -d, --delete-v2 Delete ID3v2 tags. -s, --delete-v1 Delete ID3v1 tags. -D, --delete-all Delete all ID3 tags. --delete-frames=FID1,FID2,... Delete specific ID3v2 frames (or groups of frames) from the files. -C, --convert Convert ID3v1 tags to ID3v2 tags. This will also happen automatically during any editing. -a, --artist=artist Set the artist information (TPE1). -A, --album=album Set the album information (TALB). -t, --song=title Set the title information (TIT2). -c, --comment=DESCRIPTION:COMMENT:LANGUAGE Set a comment (COMM). The language and description may be omitted, in which case the language defaults to English, and the descrip- tion to an empty string. -g, --genre=genre Set the genre information (TCON). -y, --year=, --date=YYYY-[MM-DD] Set the year/date information (TDRC). -Tnum/num, --track=num/num Set the track number (TRCK). Any text or URL frame (those beginning with T or W) can be modified or added by prefixing the name of the frame with "--". For example, --TIT3 "Monkey!" will set the TIT3 (subtitle) frame to Monkey!. BUGS
No sanity checking is done on the editing operations you perform, so mid3v2 will happily accept --TSIZ when editing an ID3v2.4 frame. How- ever, it will also automatically throw it out during the next edit operation. AUTHOR

MP3TAG(1)						      General Commands Manual							 MP3TAG(1)

mp3tag - view and manipulate ID3v1 tags. SYNOPSIS
mp3tag [ -s song ] [ -a artist ] [ -l album ] [ -y year ] [ -e comment ] [ -k track ] [ -g genre ] [ -r ] file [ file ... ] DESCRIPTION
This manual page briefly documents the mp3tag command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the orig- inal program does not have one. mp3tag is a program that allows you to both view and manipulate ID3v1 metadata tags. Running the command with just a filename will display the file's current tag. Setting some options will cause the tag to be updated and displayed. OPTIONS
-a artist Set the artist name to artist. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -e comment Set the comment to comment. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -g genre Set the genre to genre. This is a single integer with a value of 0 to 254 corresponding to the appropriate Winamp compatible genre (use '-g list' to list all supported genres). -k track Set the track number to track. This is a single integer with a value of 0 to 255. Specifying this field truncates the comment field to twenty-eight characters, as per the ID3v1.1 standard. -l album Set the album name to album. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -r Merge new tag with any preexisting tag in the file. -s song Set the song name to song. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -y year Set the year to year. Strings over four characters are truncated. EXAMPLES
Display foo.mp3's current ID3v1 info: mp3tag foo.mp3 Set foo.mp3's artist to 'Bar', and album to 'Baz': mp3tag -a Bar -l Baz foo.mp3 Set foo.mp3's year to 2001, merging it with any tag already present: mp3tag -y 2001 -r foo.mp3 AUTHOR
