MP3Unicode is a command line utility to convert ID3 tags in mp3 files between different encodings. For example,

mp3unicode --source-encoding cp1251 --id3v1-encoding none --id3v2-encoding unicode file.mp3

will read id3v2 tag (or id3v1 tag if there is no id3v2) from the file, convert the text fields in the tag from cp1251 to Unicode and will write id3v2 tag back, stripping away id3v1 tag.

See the homepage for a complete description. Please, also see the homepage if you want to submit a bug report.

P.S. This is a command line tool, but since it helped at least one of the authors to improve his Amarok experience, it was placed at kde-apps.


2007-09-25 -- Version 1.2
* Qt dependency dropped.
* Processing multiple files is now possible.
* Some improvements in interface, e.g. running mp3unicode without arguments shows help.

I was waiting for something like that for a long time! I even started to make such an app myself, but never finished it.


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

That's nice :), thank you for the notice. Though the post links here, so there is no need to make an extra post with the link to mp3unicode.yellowsite.ru.

Just needed to add a final touch:
converter.Convert(tag->genre(), &Tag::setGenre);

Can you please, please please convert it to Qt4?

I tried to compile it, but failed

Thank you!.

 Edgy .deb package

I have created a .deb package for Ubuntu Edgy out of the latest version of mp3unicode (1.1.1). It's available at http://xbo.pivo.org/packages.

The package will install the binary into /usr/local/bin, just as the original make install will do.

Please note: this is my _very_ first attempt at creating packages, so:
a) if something is wrong, please don't send hate mail
b) please send your suggestions on what I should be doing differently.

You did not publish the source...

So I've added debian support to this package as to other of my packages.
But since I don't use debian, I need you to test it...

BTW there is also spec file available... But untested either...

beta is located at:

Best Regards,
Alon Bar-Lev.

I've created the source package, available at the same place: http://xbo.pivo.org/packages/

It includes all the files necessary to build the .deb

Please send me a message alon.barlev@gmail.com so we can work on this.
Your implementation seems too complex. I would prefer if you fix mine, all you need to fix is dependencies and names.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
