MPEG ID3 Tagging


Copying tags

Easy Hi-Q Converter can automatically
copy MPEG ID3 version 1 and 2 tags from any input file that contains them, to any output file type that can accept them. This takes place while converting.

To copy ID3 tags, click
Options, then put a check-mark in the Copy ID3 Tags to new files check-box. When using this option you must also select at least one type of tag to copy. You can select ID3v1 or ID3v2 or both. If you uncheck the Copy ID3 Tags to new files check-box, no tags will be copied.




Editing tags

To
edit MPEG ID3 tags, click the ID3 Tags menu item which opens the MPEG ID3v1, ID3v2 Tag Editor.

In the editor,
navigate to your desired location on the left side of the Explorer. The right side of the Explorer will display audio files for editing. Only file types that can contain ID3 tags will be shown. All other types are not shown.

To
read or edit ID3 tags in a file, simply click on the filename on the right side and the filename will be shown on the label below. If the file already contains a tag, the information will be shown in the text boxes.

ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags can both be contained in a file. But, only one type at a time is shown. To view or edit each type, click the option buttons near the bottom for the desired type.

To
edit an ID3 tag, first select the type, ID3v1 or ID3v2. Then, change the information in the text boxes. When finished, click Save ID3 Tag to save the information.

Information in the
left side text boxes can be entered for both types. Information in the right side text boxes is only for ID3v2 tags and will only be enabled if that type is selected.

Note: When
ID3v1 is selected, the maximum number of characters allowed in each box is 30.
