About

eyeD3 is a Python tool for working with audio files, specifically MP3 files containing ID3 metadata (i.e. song info).

It provides a command-line tool (eyeD3) and a Python library (import eyed3) that can be used to write your own applications or plugins that are callable from the command-line tool.

For example, to set some song information in an mp3 file called song.mp3:

$ eyeD3 -a Integrity -A "Humanity Is The Devil" -t "Hollow" -n 2 song.mp3

With this command we've set the artist (-a/--artist), album (-A/--album), title (-t/--title), and track number (-n/--track-num) properties in the ID3 tag of the file. This is the standard interface that eyeD3 has always had in the past, therefore it is also the default plugin when no other is specified.

The results of this command can be seen by running the eyeD3 with no options.

$ eyeD3 song.mp3
song.mp3      [ 3.06 MB ]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
ID3 v2.4:
title: Hollow
artist: Integrity
album: Humanity Is The Devil
album artist: None
track: 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The same can be accomplished using Python.

import eyed3

audiofile = eyed3.load("song.mp3")
audiofile.tag.artist = "Token Entry"
audiofile.tag.album = "Free For All Comp LP"
audiofile.tag.album_artist = "Various Artists"
audiofile.tag.title = "The Edge"
audiofile.tag.track_num = 3

audiofile.tag.save()

eyeD3 is written and maintained by Travis Shirk and is licensed under version 3 of the GPL.
