Windows 7: Editing not MP3 tags, but MP3file.

Editing not MP3 tags, but MP3file.

Hi everyone. I overcame all the known troubles with editing MP3 tags, it's no problem. Since I don't like the presentation of my MP3's in iTunes I wrote a program in html/JavaScript that does all the work I want. I'm not a great programmer, just QuickBasic (Very Good!) and html/JavaScript. But now I meet a quite different problem. My program reads tags from the MP3 file itself. Reading 3 tags in over 5000 MP3's takes about 70 secs (Win 7 x64). To speed that up I place those tags (tit2, tpe1 and tcon) in the beginning of the file. I have to do that manually for each file with a text-editor, time consuming! But... is there a way to change the place of the tags in a MP3 file in a more automatic way?

I can't help you with your program, but I used a program called mp3tag to clean up tags on my song database. It is easy to use and very fast (and free!). It's very good at editing large number of files at a stretch.

Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...)

I don't think you can. Wikipedia tells us it is an industry standard having the tag info at the end of the mp3 file.

I think you missed my point, allend66. I really DO place my ID2v2 tags in the very beginning, starting from byte 11. Doing it manually is just time consuming, that why I asked if there might be some program to fix that. At the end of the file you'll only find the v1 tags which I don't like/use either. v2 is much more compatible, I use my own genres in TCON. But thanks for answering!
