how to make filename match id3tag?


I use id3 to edit id3 info- nice and easy but how to make the filenames the same as the id3tag's song title? Anyone seen a script for such an animal perhaps?

For example track3 id3 tag info gives correct song title:

Code:
NickelBack # id3 -l *.ogg

03.Track_3.ogg:
Title  : Someday                         Artist: NickelBack
Album  : TheLongRoad                     Year:     , Genre: Rock (17)

But as you can see the filename does not change:

Code:
NickelBack # ls
01.Track_1.ogg  04.Track_4.ogg  07.Track_7.ogg  10.Track_10.ogg  13.Track_13.ogg
02.Track_2.ogg  05.Track_5.ogg  08.Track_8.ogg  11.Track_11.ogg  14.Track_14.ogg
03.Track_3.ogg  06.Track_6.ogg  09.Track_9.ogg  12.Track_12.ogg
Thanks for any ideas.

you need a renamer/tagger.
i use (excellent) mp3bookhelper (win32) that works great (100%) with wine.
one click renames all your files according to a scheme that u can define...
i rename hundreds of files that way in a click.
yes, i m a lazzy b....

You can do it with 'vorbiscomment' but it's a real pain. I'm a CLI junkie but got sick of editing scripts to avoid 1000-character command lines. So I downloaded easyTAG. Pretty cool. I used to use Tagscanner on Windows. Also very cool.

Cantus

Cantus is an easy to use tool for tagging and renaming MP3 and OGG/Vorbis files. It has many features including mass tagging and renaming of MP3s, the ability to generate a tag out of the filename, filter definitions for renaming, recursive actions, CDDB (Freedb) lookup (no CD needed), copy between ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags, and a lot more.

OK so iut makes a tag from the filename but still I only have to write the name once this way.

thanks digiot- easyTAG is prety nice too.
