simple, powerful audio tag editor
  18 reviews

Puddletag is an audio tag editor (primarily created) for GNU/Linux similar to the Windows program, Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

The usual tag editor features are supported like extracting tag information from filenames, renaming files based on their tags by using patterns and basic tag editing.

Then there're Functions, which can do things like replace text, trim it, do case conversions, etc. Actions can automate repetitive tasks. You can import your QuodLibet library, lookup tags using Amazon (including cover art), Discogs (does cover art too!), FreeDB and MusicBrainz (and more).

Supported formats: ID3v1, ID3v2 (mp3), MP4 (mp4, m4a, etc.), VorbisComments (ogg, flac), Musepack (mpc), Monkey's Audio (ape) and WavPack (wv).

I love this app, nothing else comes close but I can't find it in the 20.1 repo, how can i get this working on 20.1?

Linux Mint 19.3: No implemented function to change id3v2.4 into id3v2.3 (only indirectly). But on the other hand it works good.

This is the only Linux tagger for me that is as easy to use (in fact better) than TagScan. It handles album art, easily changes up and down into directories, can add custom fields. It all works and is all easy. You have to reopen it if you change a directory in a file browser, but because it also opens with a right click from a cinnamon folder, that becomes a non issue.

На виндозе использовал "mp3tag Editor". И после недолгих поисков, нашёл вот эту альтернативу (ну или копию). Лучшей программы для пакетного редактирования тагов не знаю. Разработчикам большое спасибо!

Fantastic tool. If you're coming from Windows and wanted to bring mp3tag with you, look no further. Puddletag is based on that very application and it works great!!!

I don't like my music video files to be missing tags or tagged wrong so this was just awesome to find! Had it before, had to have it again on my newest machine.

Pretty close to mp3tag. Easy to use and many good features.

Excellent piece of SW. Easy transition from MediaMonkey (from Windows). Like the spreadsheet view, abillity to edit tags and rename files at the same time. Don't like inabillity to see album art in "real time" (Windows/Album Art checking does nothing) and Extended Tags function isn't that convenient.
