Manage MP3 ID3 tag information from the command line
Authored by: ygor on Aug 07, '03 10:19:31AM
I looked at id3tool.

Very nice. Simple, easy command line interface.

However, it is limited to version 1 type id3 tags which have a finite list of tag fields of fixed length.

Info about ID3V1 here

The ID3Lib I am using supports version 2, which I prefer to use as it is not limited by size of tag or tag sequence.

Info about ID3V2 here

Manage MP3 ID3 tag information from the command line

So what would be your suggestion for doing the same thing as id3tool for ID2 tags?

Take a look at <http://id3v2.sourceforge.net>. It requires <http://id3lib.sourceforge.net>. I just downloaded both packages and they compiled with no problems on 10.3 with the Dev Tools installed. Just read the simple INSTALL file in the id3v2 directory for complete instructions.

You end up with a command line program called id3v2.
