ID3v2 tags tips

Tag&Rename provides full support for ID3v2 tags including support for ID3v2.2, ID3v2.3 and ID3v2.4 (ANSI, Unicode and Unicode UTF8 encoded tags). Tag&Rename always writes ID3v2.3 tags because of compatibility with other software and hardware.

ID3v2 tags benefits over ID3v1:

  • No string-length limitations
  • Ability to add custom Genre fields
  • Cover art
  • Ability to save Unicode information into ID3v2 tags (see Program options -> Tags)
  • Select the files you want to export.

Note: ID3v2 tags are stored in the beginning of the mp3 file. This is why it takes more time to write it the first time. (Tag&Rename needs to move all the file data.)
