Make iTunes treat an MP3 podcast as a regular MP3
Authored by: hypert on Sep 22, '05 11:51:38PM

I'm not sure anyone else besides Doug and I are still reading this hint :-), but here's one more tip.

Again, I'm just trying these steps on the Sub Pop Podcast MP3s. (What? You haven't subscribed yet?!? You are missing out on some of the best indie/alt-rock out there!)

Once again, I want to thank Elliott, the original poster, for the suggestion to try the "id3v2" program. If I simply run "id3v2 -C" (the convert option) on the Sub Pop MP3s, I can keep all iimportant tags, but it clobbers a bunch of others, including the one(s) that flag the file as a podcast.

I can't find a combination of "Convert ID3 Tags" conversions inside iTunes to accomplish the same thing, so it looks like the "id3v2" program is the answer. Well, for me at least.

I'd love to hear what others find! Feel free to email, too, since it's hard to remember to keep checking back here. My address is just my username (hypert) at verizon.net (without the parens).
