Audio Tag Editor for Linux - Puddletag

Puddletag is an audio tag editor (primarily created) for GNU/Linux similar to the Windows program, Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

The usual tag editor features are supported like extracting tag information from file-names, renaming files based on their tags by using patterns and basic tag editing.

Then there’re Functions, which can do things like replace text, trim it, do case conversions, etc. Actions can automate repetitive tasks. You can import your QuodLibet library, look-up tags using Amazon (including cover art), Discogs (does cover art too!), FreeDB and MusicBrainz.

Supported formats: ID3v1, ID3v2 (mp3), MP4 (mp4, m4a, etc.), VorbisComments (ogg, flac), Musepack (mpc), Monkey’s Audio (.ape) and WavPack (wv).

Puddletag Installation:
Open the terminal and type following command to install Puddletag:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/puddletag
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install puddletag
Installing on Fedora 14 and later
Just run (as root):
yum install puddletag
Sometimes the latest version is still in the testing repo. Then you should use (also as root:)
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install
Start puddletag from Ubuntu 'Dash'
Using File > Open Folder... select a directory containing supported audio files.
Here’s what puddletag looks like after ...

Consider the first file, which contains the artist and title of the song. I can enter these values by typing them directly into their respective field in the File-View, use the Tag Panel on the left or extract them using a Pattern. To remove a field, change the text to <blank> and the field’ll be removed upon saving.
