I've just released Mp3tag v2.88

I’ve taken a deep dive in the bug reports section of the forums and fixed many, many long-lasting and not so old issues with this release. The list was quite long and I’m in the process of bringing it all up to date.

With this new version, I’ve also realized three feature requests which were so old they already had a beard :)

Using a modern, default font in the main window
This one makes Mp3tag look more beautiful on modern Windows systems. It also implies, that any system-wide font changes are also visible in Mp3tag now. The difference is very nice.

Addressing memory above 2GB on 64 bit systems
This one is huge for people with huge libraries. Mp3tag can now allocate up to 4GB of your RAM. That’s impressively much.

Displaying cover art dimensions in Mp3tag’s file view
You can now use `%_cover_width%` and `%_cover_height%` for width and height of the first embedded cover art. It’s also available in the filter, in the converters and everywhere else in Mp3tag.

🚀 You can download the new version from

🧡 And if you like Mp3tag and want to support my work, I’m happy about any contribution

As always, enjoy and take care

Today, I’m writing you to thank you for being part of the Mp3tag community!
I've loved every minute of working on Mp3tag over the past year and I hope you’ve enjoyed working with it too 😊

Highlights this year were adding a portable installation mode, extending Mp3tag’s core to work with chapters and adding support for Matroska. I’ve also fixed many issues and added other tweaks via the 5 releases during the year. It’s my hope that in the process Mp3tag got better for you too.
Mp3tag also has a new server since November (octa-core 💥), which now handles all the traffic on the main site, the forums and the Discogs image cache. It’s super-fast!

I’m also very grateful for all of you who supported me and my project with a donation (or even multiple donations!). It's awesome that you’re caring and it feels very good to be backed by a crowd! Thank you whole-heartedly. 💛

If you’re still on the edge – now it’s a good time: https://mp3tag.de/-/j

I’m already working on the next release of Mp3tag. It comes with a new Library feature, which speeds up reading tags for huge libraries and is more memory-efficient. If you feel adventurous over the holidays, you can get the latest beta version from http://developer.mp3tag.de

Most importantly, I’m wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a healthy and inspiring New Year 2018.

Enjoy and take care

I've just released Mp3tag v2.85!

This version comes with a wide variety of changes, most notably:

Support for Matroska (MKA/MKV)
With the recent support for multi-track files, it was about time to add support for the Matroska container format. Similar to MP4, Matroska can contain both audio and video tracks. This means, that you now have another option to tag your video collection with Mp3tag. Mp3tag currently displays the default (or forced) audio track and all included chapters. I'm curious about your experience, so if you're going to use Matroska with Mp3tag please let me know what you think.

Extended list of default genres
I've extended the list of default genres to include all extensions made by Winamp (ID3v1 genres 148 to 191) which were included by several other programs. It now includes genres like Audiobook and IDM which I find quite nice. If you're using only a small set of genres, you can use 'Options > Genres' to add your own.

This version also fixes many issues and includes smaller changes.

Files without cover art? Files of a certain type? Files of your favorite artist? The Filter reveals all this — see http://help.mp3tag.de/main_filter.html

The Discogs image proxy I'm running for Mp3tag had some hickups — if you had problems accessing cover art via Discogs, you can try again.

I’ve just released Mp3tag v2.84!

This version comes with a wide variety of changes, most notably:

Support for Nero-style MP4 chapters
With Nero-style tags, it’s possible to have one file consisting of multiple sub-tracks. The Nero chapter tags describe the position and the sub-track specific tags. With this new version, Mp3tag displays individual sub-tracks of such files and also allows for editing of those individual chapter tags. Tags fields with the same contents across all sub-tracks are used as global file tags when writing changes.

Cover-only Tag Sources to import album-art from Discogs
Many of you wrote me and wished for a cover-only alternative to the now discontinued Amazon Tag Sources. Here you go :) With this new version, Mp3tag comes with two cover-only Tag Sources to import cover art from Discogs.

This version fixes many, many issues — some reported recently, some were a little bit older.

I've just released Mp3tag v2.83 :D

This version comes with a wide variety of changes, most notably:

Support for querying Discogs via Release ID
Sometimes, searching by album or artist name simply doesn't give the correct results. This version adds a new tag source to directly search by Discogs Release ID. This means, that you can directly jump to the correct result when importing tags from Discogs.com.

Import from Amazon no longer available
Unfortunately, Amazon has closed my associate account so that importing tags via Amazon is no longer possible. A highly recommended alternative tag source is Discogs, which offers high-quality metadata and cover art.

Support for removing Nero-style tags from MP4 files
Nero-style tags are one possible reason why tags cannot be saved to MP4 files. This version adds basic detection of those tags and reporting via %_tag% if present. Furthermore, you can now remove Nero-style chapter information from MP4 files via context-menu in the file list.

Support for restricting cover export to certain cover types
The Mp3tag action to export cover-art to files now has a option to restrict the covers to be exported to a certain cover type. This means, that you can now export, e.g., all the front covers of your files in one go.

Improvements at reading and writing cue sheets
It's now possible to read cue sheets that don't start with Track 1 and many other things. If you're into working with cue sheets, you'll probably like the changes in this release.

Furthermore, this version fixes some issues which were reported during the last months as denoted in the history of changes.

Enjoy, take care and thanks for your support!
