mid3cp: copy ID3 tags


mid3cp - copy ID3 tags


mid3cp [options] source dest


mid3cp copies the ID3 tags from a source file to a destination file.

It is designed to provide similar functionality to id3lib's id3cp tool, and can optionally write ID3v1 tags. It can also exclude specific tags from being copied.


--verbose, -v
Be verbose: state all operations performed, and list tags in source file.
Write ID3v1 tags to the destination file, derived from the ID3v2 tags.
--exclude-tag, -x
Exclude a specific tag from being copied. Can be specified multiple times.
