SYNOPSIS

mid3v2 [options] filename ...

DESCRIPTION

mid3v2 is a Mutagen-based replacement for id3lib\(aqs id3v2. It supports ID3v2.4 and more frames; it also does not have the numerous bugs that plague id3v2.

This program exists mostly for compatibility with programs that want to tag files using id3v2. For a more usable interface, we recommend Ex Falso.

OPTIONS

-q, --quiet
  Be quiet: do not mention file operations that perform the user\(aqs request. Warnings will still be printed.
-v, --verbose
  Be verbose: state all operations performed. This is the opposite of --quiet. This is the default.
-e, --escape
  Enable interpretation of backslash escapes for tag values. Makes it possible to escape the colon-separator in TXXX, COMM values like \(aq\:\(aq and insert escape sequences like \(aq\n\(aq, \(aq\t\(aq etc.
-f, --list-frames
  Display all supported ID3v2.3/2.4 frames and their meanings.
-L, --list-genres
  List all ID3v1 numeric genres. These can be used to set TCON frames, but it is not recommended.
-l, --list
  List all tags in the files. The output format is not the same as id3v2\(aqs; instead, it is easily parsable and readable. Some tags may not have human-readable representations.
--list-raw
  List all tags in the files, in raw format. Although this format is nominally human-readable, it may be very long if the tag contains embedded binary data.
-d, --delete-v2
  Delete ID3v2 tags.
-s, --delete-v1
  Delete ID3v1 tags.
-D, --delete-all
  Delete all ID3 tags.
--delete-frames=FRAMES
  Delete specific ID3v2 frames (or groups of frames) from the files. FRAMES is a "," separated list of frame names e.g. "TPE1,TALB"
-C, --convert
  Convert ID3v1 tags to ID3v2 tags. This will also happen automatically during any editing.
-a,--artist=ARTIST
  Set the artist information (TPE1).
-A,--album=ALBUM
  Set the album information (TALB).
-t,--song=TITLE
  Set the title information (TIT2).
-c,--comment=<DESCRIPTION:COMMENT:LANGUAGE>
  Set a comment (COMM). The language and description may be omitted, in which case the language defaults to English, and the description to an empty string.
-g,--genre=GENRE
  Set the genre information (TCON).
-y,--year=<YYYY>, --date=<YYYY-[MM-DD]>
  Set the year/date information (TDRC).
-T,--track=<NUM/NUM>
  Set the track number (TRCK).

Any text or URL frame (those beginning with T or W) can be modified or added by prefixing the name of the frame with "--". For example, --TIT3 "Monkey!" will set the TIT3 (subtitle) frame to Monkey!.

The TXXX frame requires a colon-separated description key; many TXXX frames may be set in the file as long as they have different keys. To set this key, just separate the text with a colon, e.g. --TXXX "ALBUMARTISTSORT:Examples, The".

The special POPM frame can be set in a similar way: --POPM "bob@example.com:128:2" to set Bob\(aqs rating to 128/255 with 2 plays.

BUGS

No sanity checking is done on the editing operations you perform, so mid3v2 will happily accept --TSIZ when editing an ID3v2.4 frame. However, it will also automatically throw it out during the next edit operation.
