apetag seems to work fine with shorten (.shn) format as well. I'll experiment with some other file types to see what else works.

It appears that id3 version 1 tags work with shorten and ape as well. id3 version 2 tags corrupt the files though.

It's too bad these programs can't read the other's tag. This will make it harder because I could be using apetag to read a tag when id3tag was used to create it (or vice versa). I may have to try to read a tag with id3info first and if no results try the other program.

I'm assuming maybe id3v1 tags via id3tag may be writable to many more file formats. I'll try it on other formats like wma. Looks like some more restructuring to my code needs to be done.

It appears that flac files accept apetag & id3tags w/o overwriting metaflac's tags. The track is still playable in mplayer but now it can't be decoded. Looks like I'll need to check that with the other formats too.

It seems that version 1 tags can be written to every file format I tried. Version 2 tags seem to corrupt everything except mp3. Flac files were corrupted with apetag, id3tag, & mp3info. I think I'll make the program so the user can choose which program to tag their files with.

1.0 is now up

I added a help file, and restructured the code quite a bit this time.

updated to 1.1

A small bugfix. I noticed when a mp4/m4a (itunes type audio) file was selected and AtomicParsley was not installed it still showed up in the taggers to be selected. Now it won't.

When I select a file it just says all the operations are finished or something like that, instead of showing me the tagging window. It doesn't say anything helpful in the terminal.
The problem could be that I have a very old puppy, and I have easytag anyway, so I don't actually need it to work, but is there any way to debug?

Do you have either id3info, mp3info, or apetag in your $PATH? Otherwise I'm not quite sure why it would do that. What happens if you do this from the command line:

# pmetatagger /path/to/audio/file -dumptag

Disregard that. Thanks for the feedback, I see I did somehow break the individual file loading. It seems to work okay when loading a directory or choosing to open a file with pmetatagger in a file manager but loading a single file from the gui is broken. I'll post a new version soon.

1.2 is now posted.

This fixes 2 bugs. The bug reported by disciple should be resolved and also a bug that caused the gui not to start sometimes due to a temp file not being written properly.

Do you think it would be possible for it to edit exif data in photos with jhead?

It should be fairly simple to create a gui to do that. I don't know if I'd add it to the code of pmetatagger though. I've never used jhead before but I'll take a look at it and see if I can throw a little gui together for it.

Alright, I've got the code into pmetatagger to support jpg/jpeg files if jhead is in your $PATH. Do you want it there just so you can view the Exif data? The only thing you can really edit is the Exif Date/Time right? I'll also add the ability to use the Exif data on another jpeg file on your file. I could also add checkboxes to strip Comments field, Exif section, IPTC section, & non-image sections. Since I really wouldn't use pmetatagger for this function, is there anything I'm missing?

It can also edit JPEG (not exif) comments.
Sorry - I didn't look at it carefully. When I was looking at it I was basically just interested in the JPEG thumbnails, then I had this bright idea the other day, wrongly assuming that if it could replace exif thumbnails it must be able to replace other exif information...

No problem at all. I'll try to get a new version up sometime tonight.

Alright, I've got it all the code in there except for the thumbnail stuff. I created 3 tabs worth of display output of jhead, the first 2 are unchangeable display only. The third tab has the ability to add/edit the exif Date/Time & Comments. It also has the option to select another jpeg and use that jpeg's exif data to tag your selected jpeg. There are also 4 checkboxes to strip unwanted data (comments, exif, IPTC, & non-image).

I see jhead has the ability to remove thumbnails, save thumbnails, and replace thumbnails. Where do I find a jpeg file that already has a builtin thumbnail so I can experiment with the commands to add them to the gui? If you have one, could you post it in this thread so I can download it?

OK, I'll upload one in a second. Here's what I was already posting:

Great Smile
For a while there I thought I'd found another bug. When I chose a directory it would do what I was complaining about before when choosing a file - just say all processes are complete straight away. But it's working now, even though I didn't do anything...

I've got a couple of suggestions that are somewhat more useful:
- allow typing the folder or file path in the gui, instead of using the browse button.
- allow it to take a relative path from the command line.

BTW does the command for opening all files of a given type from the console actually work for you? Because it just brings up the standard gui for me...
