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.
I want to install my favorite player WMP11 in Linux, but the Setup fails in validation! i there a possible to force install wmp11 with wine in linux ? I have a lot of music in WAV + tagged with RIFF Tags, wmp can read riff tags...Amarok can't! is there another player that can read RIFF Tags from WAV files?
I have a lot of avis with annoying metadata that show in vlc. Since I cannot figure out how to configure vlc in a way that it won't show the tags, ffmpeg should strip the tags. This is supposed to do the trick:
i would change the tag it applies then it reverts i have even edited them with easy tag it appears to keep but rhythmbox does not register the change and it revers if i change it there aside from re-encoding them is there a way to change the tag on them
I am trying to organize some music I just copied off cd to my hard drive. the tracks are not listed (there is no track listing or album title etc) so I go to music-properties and try to fill the stuff in. I can't type into the boxes.
I have a folder that has lots of sample audio files, all in mp3 format. Does anyone know of a way to change artist - album info for all these files in one go. I am wanting to change the artist for all files to myself and album to something like day/date etc.
For example, an mp3 file has all the tags filled - track number, year, genre, etc. But when in Amarok, some tags are not shown to me.Look at the attached screenshot, please. You see, when I look into track properties I can see that it HAS got a track number and a year. But it is not shown in playlist.
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*
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.
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).
How i can edit the tags in About Me(System->Preference->About Me)? I need to change some tags it uses and want to change that. I don't know which package(s) are used in that. know the name of the package so that i can modify and install the source code?
How can I set specific ID3 tags for multiple files? For example, I would like to set all files in a directory to the same album. (directly setting the album tag for files in a directory to the directory name would be even better)
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?
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?
I'm on 10.04 64-bit and can't get tagging to work in Activity Journal (.5) or Tracker (., installed from the ppas. Am I missing something? It'd be really nice to have tag-level access in addition to hierarchal directories! I've spent two hours past my bedtime working on this and am stumped.
I have a lot of mp3 files without any ID3 tag information. This is very annoying, because my iPod does not show them correctly. My Banshee shows them as "unknown artist" and the title. I would like to find them all in a bunch to batch update them.
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.
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.
