Hi ! Perhaps someone can let me know how to move the ogg metadata for a bunch of ogg files, gotten from ripping several CDs, but using freedb gathered metadata, to musicbrainz gathered metadata.

The thing is that I found several mistaken metadata (I haven’t even looked at all of it), and ripping CDs take quite a while, as to think of re-ripping that. BTW, I understand musicbrainz also add composer to the metadata, which is by far pretty useful, since most of the CDs I ripped are classical music CDs…

Hopefully a recursive command line tool can be used (going one ogg at a time can take forever)…

Thanks !


Have you tried MusicBrainz Picard?

If I understand right, you ripped a bunch of CDs using FreeDB but now want to use the MusicBrainz tags? Picard should be able to do that in bulk.


Yes, you described it correctly. I’ll take a look at Picard. Thanks !

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
