Music Meta Data CLI Application Help


Hello everyone, I have an application use I am trying to find and wanted to ask you all for a recommendation. So I am currently using kid3 to edit mp3 meta data and mp4 meta data, I like kid3; but really really really want a nice cli based meta data editor. All the only thing I know maybe be an issue is how images are embedded. A few years ago when I was trying all sorts of meta data editors a lot of them symlinked the images instead of embedding them; I prefer they be embedded. I have done some research and all I can find is ncmpcpp (which I don't like as I don't actually use enough of it to feel I should install it) and GUI ones. I would actually like it to have a nice ncurses interface, but am open to anything. I am also looking for an application to edit the audio that is also cli based/ncurses, and I really would like these to be pure C. If you have a moment I would love some help, thank you

mutagen, -> mid3v2 it is cli but not an app, it is a command line tool tags and images and such. I use this in a script on my mp3's.

Puddletag works great for bulk everything on mp3/(mp4?). but it uses python3 when some systems are phasing out. They have one person trying to convert its source base to qt5, though. but if you have a system that still uses qt3. (qt4 I think works with it too). then I'd nudge you to give that a try.

( symlinking images to a mp3 file is crazy talk. what if you move them to somewhere else?, what kind of a person would even conceder this?)

Well you're a programmer, right? (why else would it have to be in C) Might need to fill the gap by writing one.
