Projects / K-Yamo


K-Yamo is an MP3 and Ogg Vorbis tagger with ID3v2 support. It can store ID3v1, ID3v2.3, or ID3v2.4 tags. It also stores pictures in the tags. K-Yamo supports multi-file editing. It can guess tags out of filenames, and fetches the missing parts from musicbrainz. It also cleans up your files into a structured filesystem tree which makes use of the tags in the files. Finally, it is a CD ripper with FreeDB support. A MySQL database can optionally be used for tagging.

            Re: Does not compile

            I guess you are missing the taglib-devel-package.
            The header-file missing is from taglib.

            The configurefile does not check at all what is

            Taglib is one of the things k-yamo needs.

            Does not compile
            The ./configure went fine. But when going to compile I get this error message:

            .. taglib-interface... taglib/audioproperties.h: No such file..

            Either the configure does not check all, or the package is incomplete.

            Re: Bugfix for 0.42a2
            The patch isn't needed anymore, because I uploaded
            a new version containing that patch. I did this
            because there where compiling-problems with Suse
            10.1. Maybe on other distros too, I simply don't know.
            So if you always had compiling-problems relating
            some little-endian-errors, this release fixes this.

            In no way this release stands for the state of

            The musicbrainzcode is simply not complete, so I
            could not include it. But if you want to to keep track
            with my status, just take a look at the
            project-homepage. I will always try to write all my
            work there.

            Bugfix for 0.42a2
            I have uploaded a small bugfix for k-yamo on the

            Project-Homepage. It removes the bug, that causes

            K-Yamo to save the wrong file on certain

            circumstances. There is also a howto for the fix.
