read and write audio tags for many formats in Python 2/3
Note: The bundled tools within the “tools” directory do not work for this release. I hope to fix them and reimplement their tests by the next release. This doesn’t affect the operation of the module itself.
A fork of the mutagen package, modified to support Python 3.3+. I take no credit for the original mutagen - the copyright for that is owned by the original developers. As of the 1.22.1 release, this package is now compatible with Python 2.6/2.7, and I am working with the mutagen developers to make these two projects converge. Once this happens, I’ll close this project and start working on improving mutagen itself.
From the original package description:
“Mutagen is a Python module to handle audio metadata. It supports ASF, FLAC, M4A, Monkey’s Audio, MP3, Musepack, Ogg FLAC, Ogg Speex, Ogg Theora, Ogg Vorbis, True Audio, WavPack and OptimFROG audio files. All versions of ID3v2 are supported, and all standard ID3v2.4 frames are parsed. It can read Xing headers to accurately calculate the bitrate and length of MP3s. ID3 and APEv2 tags can be edited regardless of audio format. It can also manipulate Ogg streams on an individual packet/page level.”
