mp3 all tags remover
I was just running windows for the sole reason of removing some wacky tags from some mp3 files. As I rebooted into linux I mused that it would be better to do this in linux. I imagine that the program would be commandline and world work something like:

remove_all_crap_from_mp3 in.mp3 out.mp3
The program would remove the "traditional" mp3 tags (128 bytes on the end) as well as the newer sort of tag that is apparently either in the beginning of the mp3 or somehow interleaved. Also, this program would automatically detect the presence of lyrics and embedded pictures and remove them as well.

Note by removal of a tag (or image or lyrics), I mean removal, not simply setting the fields within a tag to some zero value. The output file after a run will be smaller than the input file (unless it already was without tags).

Thanks in advance.

P.S. google failed me again, as did linux sound ... and freshmeat ... need I go on?

Bam. ffmpeg, though a video program, seems to, so far, perform the task I need done:

ffmpeg -i wacky_in.mp3 -f mp3 -vn -acodec copy good_out.mp3
