1.5 is now up. I improved the code a bit to fix the problem that disciple mentioned about lines with ":". As far as mp3's with an itunes tag, what do you need to read/edit itunes tags on mp3s?

It should work with id3info:

Code:
# id3info Blackbir*

If id3info reads the tag it should display it in the gui since mp3s will be checked for tags with id3info. Does it not display any of those fields?

When easytag opens these files it automatically changes something in them (don't know what - it doesn't seem to be the text of the tags, but it highlights them as changed files), and if I save them without changing anything myself, pmetatagger can read them.

Alright, I'll have to experiment with making mp3s using itunes on the wife's computer.

I tried shortening an mp3 to upload it here, but mp3splt does not have an option to retain the original id3 information, and using id3tag to copy the information from the original file results in a tag with the same information, but which pmetatagger can read Sad

The tags have slightly different names.

Ahh, I should have noticed that. I should be able to incorporate some code to resolve that issue rather easily.

1.6 is now up.

This should resolve the itunes tagged mp3 problem. The only problem is that itunes can tag various fields on mp3s that can't be re-tagged with "id3tag".

1.7 is now up.

Fixed a bug with the genre portion and used the cross reference with lame portion of my pcdripper script to fix it.

1.8 is up.

I fixed being able to tag a file from an existing .ptag (dumped tag) from within the gui.

Is there any reason we couldn't have a checkbox to remember the previous file's metadata, instead of asking after the first file? That way the feature could remember data from files other than the first one opened, and could even be turned on and off as you go along. It would save all that time to build the gui asking the question too Smile

Very good idea. I'll try to implement it.

The key thing is to remember the state of the checkbox between files Smile

It might also pay to think carefully about whether there is a better way to do it first Smile

e.g. the user may not know until they get to the next file that they should have saved the information, so a button to apply the tags from the previous file might be better than a checkbox to remember the tags for the next file. But that would be inefficient for doing a whole lot of files with the same tags, as you would have to click the button each time.

I've thought a bit, but most ways of improving it could get very complicated, and I think the best thing might be to have a checkbox like I suggested, and also add a button to go back to the previous file. My bash skills aren't good enough to know if that would be easy to do, but I imagine it should be.
