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 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:
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..

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)
This might not be the right place to ask this question, but it's software so I'll try this before going to Audio-specific boards. I have a bunch of MP3s (some ogg) with crazy names in crazy directories. I would like to make sure the tags are correct (possibly by hand) and then rename them/move them so that they are in places like
So I imagine a magic program where I can edit tags and then push a magic button that makes directories and copies the files as above. Any ideas?
Is there a way to specify to find that I only want text files (and not binary files)? Grep has an option to exclude binary files, so I thought find probably has a similar feature, but I've been unable to find it.
When I use Rythmbox it always ask for a wma codec when i dont have any wma files and i also have a problem with id3 demuxer. I tried to edit a few music files and the tags didnt get updated, im not sure what the problem is.
I have most of my music on my hard drive in one big "Music" folder, and in Amarok this is seen as the collection. Everything is imported, works fine.
Until i change the ID3 tags of a file/album. Amarok refuses to load the new tags, and keeps displaying the old tags.
I have over 200 GB of music in that folder, some of it is badly tagged. When i realize that, i retag the files with Musicbrainz. And unless i scan the entire collection again, the new tags wont be loaded. Needless to say i can't listen to the respective album/file for hours, as the rescanning of that whole folder takes at least one hour.
I want to make a program that maintains a list of tags that can be attached to a set of files. Store the tags in the files. The main problem is that there is no way to get a list of all the tags without reading each and every file. And also what if you have an unused tag? Have a file that contains tag "keys" and file list "values". This seems like it would be fast and effective, but what if one of the files gets renamed?
I know how to search for normal files but can you let me know " How to search for 5 setuid files on the system. Also explain, for each file, why setuid mechanism is necessary for the command to function properly"
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?
We have a huge amount of duplicate files in a folder and I would like some pointers on to writing a bash script to create a list of the duplicate files. I've seen examples that check for the md5 sum of files... but I dont need that, the file name is enough.
following are log files which are existing, I have to delete one day older files from this location but when use above mentioned command it won't print one day older files, as i understand "-mtime" modified time, "+1" means one day older. am i correct?

I'm trying to get my music folder into something sensible. Right now, I have all my music stored in /home/foo so I have all of the albums soft linked to ~/music. I want the structure to be ~/music/<artist>/<album> I've got all of the symlinks into ~/music right now so I just need to get the symlinks into the proper structure. I'm trying to do this by delving into the symlinked album, getting the artist name with id3info. I can do this, but I can't seem to get it to work correctly.
for i in $( find -L $i -name "*.mp3" -printf "%h ") do echo "$i" #testing purposes
I'm trying to mv The Trance Mix 3 Wanderlust - DJ Exortius [TRANCE DEEP VOCAL TECH]@ into the real directory DJ Exortius. DJ Exortius already exists, so it's just a matter of moving it into the correct directory that's based on the id3 tag of the mp3 inside.
PS: I've tried easytag, but when I restructure the album, it moves it from /home/foo which is not what I want.
I have some music files (.mp3 and .flac) which have unmodifiable tags: After I change the tags, they revert to their original values automatically. It's not related to access permissions (using Linux) as in a same directory, with the same permissions, some files have modifiable tags and other not. Is there such a thing as "protected" or "unmodifiable" tags? Are there solutions to force modification ?
I have a couple of MP3s that have duplicate fields in their ID3 tags. Let me show you what I mean: This is causing problems with some media players. Is there a tool that can automatically fix these MP3s in batch? I'd prefer a free Windows or Linux program. I'm not afraid to work on the command line if necessary.
My goal is to find all pdf files on a remote machine, so I resort to the useful command find. So I type find .pdf or find .pdf" and I get nothing. I do the same on my machine and I get nothing. I do a regular search from the menu on my machine and I find quite a few pdf files. Would somebody please tell me what am I doing wrong?
I want to archive all .ctl files in a folder, recursively.tar -cf ctlfiles.tar `find /home/db -name "*.ctl" -print`The error message :tar: Removing leading `/' from member namestar: /home/db/dunn/j: Cannot stat: No such file or directorytar: 74.ctl: Cannot stat:No such file or directoryI have these files: /home/db/dunn/j 74.ctl and j 75. Notice the extra space. What if the files have other special characters? How do I archive these files recursively?
With the find command it is easy to find files that have been modified or accessed within a given period. When a file is created, the acesss time is the same as the modify time. But as soon it is accessed (read), the access time changes, but the modify time does not. I need to find files that been accessed at all, ie. files which have access time newer than modify time. How do I do that?
