About

eyeD3 is a Python tool for working with audio files, specifically mp3 files containing ID3 metadata (i.e. song info).

It provides a command-line tool (eyeD3) and a Python library (import eyed3) that can be used to write your own applications or plugins that are callable from the command-line tool.

For example, to set some song information in an mp3 file called song.mp3:

$ eyeD3 -a Nobunny -A "Love Visions" -t "I Am a Girlfriend" -n 4 song.mp3

With this command we've set the artist (-a/--artist), album (-A/--album), title (-t/--title), and track number (-n/--track-num) properties in the ID3 tag of the file. This is the standard interface that eyeD3 has always had in the past, therefore it is also the default plugin when no other is specified.

The results of this command can be seen by running the eyeD3 with no options.

$ eyeD3 song.mp3
song.mp3      [ 3.06 MB ]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
ID3 v2.4:
title: I Am a Girlfriend
artist: Nobunny
album: Love Visions
track: 4
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The same can be accomplished using Python.

import eyed3

audiofile = eyed3.load("song.mp3")
audiofile.tag.artist = u"Nobunny"
audiofile.tag.album = u"Love Visions"
audiofile.tag.title = u"I Am a Girlfriend"
audiofile.tag.track_num = 4

audiofile.tag.save()

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
