Linux alternatives: Mp3tag → puddletag

November 28th, 2015 No comments

Way back when I first made my full-time switch to Linux I made a post about an alternative to the excellent Mp3tag software on Windows. At the time I suggested a program called EasyTAG and while that is still a good program I’ve recently come across one that I think I may actually like more: puddletag.

While it is very similar to EasyTAG I find puddletag’s layout a bit easier to navigate and use.

This post originally appeared on my personal website here.




I am currently running a variety of distributions, primarily Linux Mint 18.
Previously I was running KDE 4.3.3 on top of Fedora 11 (for the first experiment) and KDE 4.6.5 on top of Gentoo (for the second experiment).

Linux alternatives: Mp3tag → EasyTAG

A big part of my move from Windows to Linux has been finding replacements for the applications that I had previously used day-to-day that are not available on Linux. For the major applications like my web browser (Firefox), e-mail client (Thunderbird), password manager (KeePass2) this hasn’t been a problem because they are all available on Linux as well. Heck you can even install Microsoft Office with the latest version of wine if you wanted to.

Unfortunately there still remains some programs that will simply not run under Linux. Thankfully this isn’t a huge deal because Linux has plenty of alternative applications that fill in all of the gaps – the trick is just finding the one that is right for you.

Mp3tag is an excellent Windows application that lets you edit the meta data (i.e. artist, album, track, etc.) inside of an MP3, OGG or similar file.

As a Linux alternative to this excellent program I’ve found a very similar application called EasyTAG that offers at least all of the features that I used to use in Mp3tag (and possibly even more).

For anyone looking for a good meta data editor I would highly recommend trying this one out.
