AudioFile::Info - Now With Added Writing

[ #17460 ]

I've uploaded the first two AudioFile::Info plugins that can write data back to the audio files. Having failed to get MP3::ID3Lib working, the first MP3 plugin with that capability is AudioFile::Info::MP3::Tag. I've also released a new version (1.04) of AudioFile::Info::Ogg::Vorbis::Header that can write data.

They'll be on CPAN mirrors soonish, but in the meantime you can get them from here.

  • FWIW, I had considered using MP3::Tag to add ID3v2 writing support to MP3::Info, but it does not support either ID3v2.2.0 or ID3v2.4.0 (the former is very common [the default for iTunes], and the latter is the current standard).
    • I had doubts about using MP3::Tag as it hasn't been updated in years - that's why I didn't include it in my first set of AudioFile::Info plugins. But it seems to be about the only MP3 module that will reliably save any kind of ID3v2 tags.

      To be honest, I didn't realise that there were different versions of ID3v2. I'll need to investigate that further. Thanks for the info.
