Is there a resource that lists all ID3V2 tags and their LAME command line equivalents?

I'm asking because the Wiki's recommended command line parameters seem to be missing some potentially useful (to me) tags.

The first one is genre, which I found after some (well, lots of) searching. It looks like this for those interested:

--tg "%m"

The other tag I'd like to add is composer. Anyone care to help?

Also, are there any other non-recommended/non-default tags you'd like to share?

Thanks.

P.S. I'm using EAC 0.95b3 with LAME 3.97b1 (just noticed b2 is out, will try layer today)

Let me know if there are better places to ask.

Thanks.

Hi huh-hah,

there are only cmd-line equivalents for ID3V1 tags.

See the output of lame -?

Thanks Sunhillow. No, I haven't checked LAME's output, will do the next rip. But that basically explains it then. I must have missed that part of the documentation ohmy.gif

So how do folks around here add V2 tags?

the tag switches are in the lame documentation, same for eac.

are you able to add the genre tag for ID3V2 ?
it only gets written for ID3V1 for me. (while using EAC & Lame)

this is the lame command i'm using:

-V 2 --vbr-new --id3v2-only --pad-id3v2 --...

the --tg "%m" comes after all the other parameters. i'm probably a bit confused, but as far as i understand this should add v2 tags and only v2 tags.

clintb, thanks for the tip, but isn't it possible to add more v2 tags with LAME?

I do not think it is possible to have LAME append the composer field even when writing v2.X tags when ripping with EAC because EAC isn't capturing the composer info. EAC is a great program but the interface only captures basic information (the traditional v1.1 tags). This information is available for LAME when LAME writes the v2.x fields but LAME cannot add what it isn't told about.

except I bet maybe you could get it to write blank composer fields (I'd have to check the switches)

I'm using a command line:
CODE
-V 2 --vbr-new -Y --id3v1-only --ta "%a" --tt "%t" --tl "%g" --ty "%y" --tn "%n" %s %d
...and the resulting MP3's are missing the genre Tag, why? blink.gif
Note that I'm using only those from the ID3V1 list of genres! unsure.gif

%m is for genre. Try adding --tg "%m just before %s %d

Not that I doubt you, but where did you find out that %m is for genre? I cannot find that documented anywhere on EAC's site.

From the EAC options dialog in the Filename tab, I find that what seems to make the most sense for genre is either %I or %B. (See this posting
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=39462
for a related discussion.)

I have found this:
CODE
%d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" LAME.exe -V 2 --vbr-new %s %d
...on the HA wiki from the configuration of APEv2 Tags.

@ huh-hah: Do I have to try --tg "%m or --tg "%m" ? blink.gif

Edit: Sorry, I've just found

this is the one am using atm
CODE
-V 1 --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta "%a" --tt "%t" --tl "%g" --ty "%y" --tn "%n" --tg "%m" --tc "%e" %s %d


- ID3V1 all tags get written properly
- ID3V2 all tags, except the Genre tag, get written.
(using 'ext encoder' & commandline in eac)

if i do the tagging routine through EAC the genre tag for ID3v2 gets written proper

checked tags with mp3utility
