mid3v2 - audio tag editor similar to 'id3v2'


mid3v2 [options] filename ...


mid3v2 is a Mutagen-based replacement for id3lib's 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.


-q, --quiet
Be quiet: do not mention file operations that perform the user's 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 '\:' and insert escape
sequences like '\n', '\t' 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

-l, --list
List all tags in the files. The output format is not the same as id3v2's; instead,
it is easily parsable and readable. Some tags may not have human-readable

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 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

Set the artist information (TPE1).

Set the album information (TALB).

Set the title information (TIT2).

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.

Set the genre information (TCON).

-y,--year=<YYYY>, --date=<YYYY-[MM-DD]>
Set the year/date information (TDRC).

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's rating to 128/255 with 2 plays.
