Ubuntu :: Mp3info With ID V2 - Only Read V1.x Tags

May 14, 2010

i'm writing on a little script for which i need to read tag from mp3 files. mp3info comes in handy, because you can specify which tag to display, e.g. `mp3info file.mp3 -p %a` gives me the artist th problem is, mp3info can only read v1.x tags but a number of my files contains v2.x tags only. converting the v2.x tags to v1.x tags is not an option, because the files need to remain as they are.

Ubuntu :: Adding Tags To The FLAC Files?

Apr 16, 2010

You will need "cuetag" for this which is part of the "cuetools" but since you already installed it (see previous seps), all you have to do is open the terminal, navigate to the folder where you just splitted some APE or FLAC files and type this:


cuetag *.cue split-track*.flac ;

(if you didn't change the file's name from split-trackNN.flac). All the split-track*.flac files will have tags in just a few seconds.so i did exactly what i was suppose to do but for some reason is still could not add the tags to my FLAC files..


kon@kon-laptop:~$ cd ~/Desktop
kon@kon-laptop:~/Desktop$ cd *ora*
kon@kon-laptop:~/Desktop/sDvorak $ cd *CD1*

Ubuntu :: Searching Tags With NOT Command In Fspot?

Oct 13, 2010

I've got some photos with two or more tags on and I was wondering if there was a way of only showing photos that had one tag and not another. I've found a way of doing it with AND and OR (the default) but I really want to search, for example, all my 'holiday' photos that don't have any pictures of person 'X' in.

Ubuntu :: Shotwell Tags And Events Disappeared?

Feb 27, 2011

I just finished upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 and converting from F-spot to Shotwell, including adding a large number of new photographs (>15 k).

On opening Shotwell today I found that all "tags" and "events", including those from the F-stop imported photos, have disappeared!! (strangely the photo ratings are maintained)

No amount of searching was able to relocate them. The modification date on the photo.db in the .shotwell folder is pre-problem, so I am holding out some hope that the relevant data have not been over-written.

I am not familiar with sql so do not know how to check the db (or restore the correct headers or whatever else is needed).

Ubuntu :: Rename Folders To Music's Id3 Tags?

Apr 22, 2011

Anyone know of an application that will rename a folder to the contents id3 tags?

My music directory is a mess with folder names. Not a big deal since I use Banshee to library everything. I have a fairly large music collection on my main hard drive(140gb) but I keep id3 tags clean.

I'm setting up an ftp server and it will be impossible to navigate the way the folders are now.

Something similar for movies would be cool too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Accented Characteres Getting Corrupted In Tags

May 2, 2010

I rip CDs using abcde and cdparanoia.The output MP3s have correct accents when I list them in a terminal.I then tag the songs using id3v2 from the command line wrapped in a script which outputs the tags to the screen as it writes. Again, the characters are there. However, when I read these tracks in any music player the accented characters are always corrupt.At what stage is this happening and how can I prevent it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Metadata / ID3 Tags - Rights?

Nov 5, 2010

I am on Ubuntu 10.04 using Rhythmbox (0.12. as my favorite music player. Right now I'm cleaning up my music collection. Part of this job is to ID3-tag multiple files (artist, genre, etc.).

On some files this works great, ob others it doesn't and I get a gstreamer error or I cannot even change the current ID3-tags. Regarding the last problem, I assume that the problem might occur because of missing rights to edit ID3-tags.

So my question is: What permissions should I give to my music collection, so Rhythmbox is able to edit the files?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Time Tags Wrong Using EasyTag?

Jan 31, 2010

I just used EasyTAG 2.1.5 under Ubuntu 9.10 to update the tags on my music files running on Rhythmbox 0.12.5, and now Rhythmbox shows that the runtimes (Time) of dozens of my mp3's are now 27:03:11. That means Rhythmbox thinks all those songs are 27 hours, 3 minutes, and 11 seconds long, which they are not. Some are now shown as 54:06:23. So far they are all playing correctly, but the slider at the top of the Rhythmbox window barely moves, making it difficult, if not impossible, to jump to different points in the songs. Nothing else seems to have been affected.

Ubuntu :: Cssh Not Reading Cluster Tags From .csshrc File?

Feb 8, 2010

When using cssh, I define some cluster tags in my local .csshrc file. Other parameters seem to be picked up by cssh, but the tags are not.I have no /etc/clusters or /etc/csshrc files. I create a fresh, default .csshrc file and append a line like:myhost = frodoWhen executing "cssh myhost", I get: Can't call method "name" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/cssh line 988This is the same message I get if I make up some destination, like: "cssh doesnotexist". So it looks like rather than picking up the tag "myhost" from .csshrc, and translating the command to "cssh frodo", it does a dns lookup on myhost.I've tried making a /etc/csshrc file like this (but without the equal sign), but that doesn't work either. This is all on Ubuntu 9.10 with cssh version 273.
