Projects / mp3check


mp3check is a script that checks directories of MP3s to verify that they are in an ideal form for burning to an ISO9660 filesystem. It checks ID3 tags, filename length, etc., and autocorrects problems on request. It's useful for building CDs for car players like the Aiwa CDC-MP3.

    Release Notes: A "--force-default" option that allows the program to correct files mostly without interaction was added. The "--ignore-all-files" option was fixed, and "--recurse" no longer considers the "." directory to be a bogus filename.

      Release Notes: LAME can now be used to re-encode MP3s during the examination, directory contents are no longer rechecked if their names change, better handling has been implemented for systems that don't have external tools installed, and some other minor bugfixes and enhancements are also included.

          Release Notes: A fix for ignoring user input when shrinking filenames, removal of the complaint that interactive mode can't fix directory names, and no more trying to append .mp3 to directories.

            Release Notes: ~/.mp3check config file parsing to store frequently-used command lines, ability to use mp3_check for verifying MP3 file structure, ability to handle directories and change their names if needed, new commandline options and appropriate functionality (--ignore-dir-names, --ignore-consistency, --ignore-uppercase, --ignore-spaces, --ignore-id3tags, --ignore-all-files, and --ignore-track-nums), new --no versions of all the options to negate the normal effect, better usage/help output, and other tweaks, enhancements, and improvements.
