Just found Media Tagger, an excellent (& powerful!) tool for renaming digital audio files. Perfect for getting your music collection into shape. It can batch rename files from meta data tags (ID3/Vorbis), as well as creating meta data tags from the file names.
Here is the (pretty impressive) list of features, from the website:
- Full support MP3, VQF, WMA, OGG, APE, MPC, AAC and FLAC files.
- Additional (lossless) formats Speex, WavPack, OptimFrog, Lossless Audio, LPAC and TTA.
- Tags support ID3v1, ID3v2 Lyrics & Pictures, Lyrics3 v2.0, APE version 1&2, Vorbis comments.
- Easy multi-file tags editing and renaming.
- Creating Winamp compatibile PLS, M3U and B4S playlists.
- Downloading TAGs from FreeDB and LocalDB database (www.freedb.org).
- Export file list and tags to the (.txt, .nfo, .diz) text files, CSV text files and HTML pages with using Template files.
- Internal file player (mp3 and wma only).
- Play your multimedia files in Winamp while editing Tags.
- Swaping TAG fields and char case formating.
- Checking file length for 64 chars (on CD).
- Fixing track numbers.
- ID3v1 and ID3v2 synchronizing.
- Multilanguage support.
- Store settings and other data in .ini file.
- Drag & Drop support for opening files and pictures.
- Integrate in system context menu.
- Formating filename form TAG, and importing to TAG.
It’s great to see Ogg being picked up in different parts of the digital audio industry. Now if only more DAPs would support Ogg, properly. I have yet to see a reasonably priced 512 MB or 1 GB player with full, real Ogg support.
