Angry ID3 tags...wtf?


Hey all,

Looking for a linux app that will mass edit, rename, create, etc id3v1 & v2 tags.
I used to use this windows explorer addon called mp3-info that would let you do all that very simply. I can't seem to find an equivelant (yes, i have scoped the forums) :-(

Optional abilities would include Mass Normalizing and the ability to get rid of those PRIV tags that windows media forces into the ID3v2 section of the files.

Any help would be appreciated.

Specs:
FeCo 'V'
Gnome
Nautilus

Thanks!!
TruANT

You caught me there, I didn't check however I did now and it appears to. In Settings > ID3 Tag Settings there is an option to write ID3v2 tags also. I have version 1.99.12 installed
