MP3 Diags description

MP3 Diags can be used to help you effortlessly improve your MP3 collection. MP3 Diags work as a GUI-based application that allows end-users to identify issues with their MP3 files, fix some of the issues and make other changes, like adding track information. It also lets you "look inside" an MP3 file. Unlike some programs that are designed to deal with a single topic (like fixing VBR headers or adding cover art), MP3 Diags is a one stop solution that identifies more than 50 different issues in MP3 files and provides the means to fix many of them.

There are many programs that create and edit MP3 files, and many of them are broken. As a result, many MP3 files have various issues, ranging from values that are not standards-conforming but that are tolerated by all players and tools (so they look perfectly fine to the end user) to files that play correctly only on some players or even cause players and tools to crash. Many of the tools are quite tolerant of errors in an MP3 file, but some are less so. Also, there are reasons to change a file even if it technically doesn't have errors; for example you may want to add the picture from the album cover, or the lyrics.

Major Features:

  1. Some of the more important issues that are found:
    • broken tags / headers / audio
    • duplicate tags / headers
    • incorrect placement of tags / headers (ID3V2, ID3V1, LAME, Xing, ...)
    • low quality audio
    • missing VBR header
    • missing track info / cover art
    • broken track info / cover art
    • missing normalization data
    • character encoding issues (for languages other than English)
  2. Some of the fixes and changes that MP3 Diags can do:
    • Adding / fixing track info, including album cover; information can be retrieved from several sources: Internet, clipboard, file name, local files, and (obviously) keyboard
    • Correcting files that show incorrect song duration
    • Correcting files in which the player cannot seek correctly
    • Converting characters for non-English names
    • Adding composer name to the artist field, for players that don't handle the composer field
    • Renaming files based on their fields
    • Changing word case for track info
  3. Advanced Features:
    • The "Export" button allows you to save the data in 3 formats: XML, text, and M3U. The XML format is probably best suited for further processing, by importing the data into a database or a spreadsheet. The "text" format is intended more for human consumption. You can use it, for example, to compare files before and after applying some transformation. Exporting as M3U can be useful to listen in an external player to files that are filtered by some criteria, e.g. those found as "low quality", those having 2 images, or whatever criteria you select.
    • The "Debug" button opens up a new window where you can see trace messages from the last file scan (as long as you didn't close the application, because these are not stored on the disk, and provided that logging is enabled.) Another option that you can configure here is logging all the changes to a file. The log file is located in the same directory as the ".ini" session file
    • The "Sessions" button allows you to keep several separate sets of folders containing MP3s, each set with its own settings. Everything that you see in the configuration dialog is stored "per session". Once the button is visible, you can click on it to see the "Sessions dialog", where you can add / remove / change sessions. Note that if you spent some time getting the settings right, you may want to use the "Save as ..." button, which will copy your settings to a new session.
