ID3 Tag Management on your Local Linux Box

by @ 10:44 am. Filed under Linux tips

Sitting at your Linux machine, tunes gently streaming from your favorite media player, such as Amarok, you are in the zone. You look down and gasp in horror as you come to the realization:

The ID3 tags on your MP3s are wrong!

*INSERT HORRIFIC CLICHE HERE*

What on this earth shall you do to overcome this cataclysmic catastrophe?

Why you install EasyTAG, of course!

According to the package description:

“EasyTAG is an utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, MusePack and Monkey’s Audio files. Its simple and nice GTK+ interface makes tagging easier under GNU/Linux.”

You can use it to batch rename your media files according to the ID3 tags. You can even take an existing tag and apply it to all the highlighted media files.
