EasyTAG is an utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, MusePack and Monkey's Audio files. EasyTAG is simple and nice GTK+ interface makes tagging easier under GNU/Linux.

The program exists for the both versions of the GTK library 1.2 and 2.4.
The GTK 1.2 version wouldn't change a lot (may be some bugs fixes), as all new developments will be concentrated on the new GTK 2.4 version.

Here are some key features of "EasyTAG" (GTK 2.4 version):
View, edit, write tags of MP3, MP2 files (ID3 tag with pictures), FLAC files (FLAC Vorbis tag), Ogg Vorbis files (Ogg Vorbis tag), and MusePack, Monkey's Audio files (APE tag),
Can edit more tag fields : Title, Artist, Album, Year, Track Number, Genre, Comment, Composer, Original Artist/Performer, Copyright, URL and Encoder name,
Auto tagging: parse filename and directory to complete automatically the fields (using masks),
Ability to rename files from the tag (using masks) or by loading a text file,
Process selected files of the selected directory,
Ability to browse subdirectories,
Recursion for tagging, removing, renaming, saving...,
Can set a field (artist, title,...) to all other files,
Read file header informations (bitrate, time, ...) and display them,
Auto completion of the date if a partial is entered,
Undo and redo last changes,
Ability to process fields of tag and file name (convert letters into uppercase, downcase, ...),
Ability to open a directory or a file with an external program,
CDDB support using Freedb.org servers (manual and automatic search),
A tree based browser or a view by Artist & Album,
