ID3Mod2.4

07 December 2012

Change MP3 ID3 TAG information.

Overview

Note: ID3Mod is no longer under development, although the download is still available.

ID3Mod can change the encoding of MP3 ID3 TAG information. It's very useful when you copy PC encoded MP3 files to Mac, while the song name maybe in a mess when you import them into iTunes.

ID3Mod can access iTunes song library, so you can modify the songs tag encoding even you already import them into iTunes.

One unique thing about ID3Mod is that it handles encoding with DBCS (Double Byte Character System) like Chinese, Japanese, Korean or any other non-ISO-8859-1 encoding. This means the tags will be comatible when imported into iTunes.

What's new in ID3Mod

Version 2.4:
  • Fix Bug: ID3Mod2 will crash when loading some kinds of MP3.

It's said it works on Snow Leopard 10.6, but it quits unexpectedly whenever I try to remove a song, save a song, and etc. Mine is 10.6.1. I love the interface and its function, and I am wondering if the developer can improve the compatibility with the latest SL. Thanks

Developer did not state clearly that THE APP IS NOW ON THE MAC APP STORE FOR 6.99. AND IT'S UPDATED THERE! And it does awersome job in fixing ID3 encodings.

Both the "Visit Developer's Site" and "Download Now" links are presently down. After some searching, I took a look and found that the developer has apparently been up here on MacUpdate recently (16 days ago)...so I am hoping s/he might be able to shed some further light? Please? Definitely interested in test driving ID3MOD! Thanks so much! -Alan

On 14 Nov 2011, I paid US$6.99 using Paypal. After payment, Paypal tried to redirect me to a website but I've got an error. I checked that the payment was successful. I sent you an email yesterday but have not received any reply.

I just downloaded it and I don't understand what exactly is happening. I load my mp3s (1 album with 12 songs), choose proper encoding (Windows Latin2) and all names look correct. When I press "Save" button, nothing happens. When I press "Save as..." buton, all files are exported with right name but their ".mp3" extensions is are removed. I don't find adding extensions back again to all files as such a deal :-( Or am I doing anything wrong? My version is V52 running on OSX 10.6.2. Thanks for help, Roman

Just downloaded, and I am not satisfied: 1) ID3Mod V45 doesn't see iTunes Smart Albums. 2) It shows me only 16 characters in the Album name, while in reality there are more, and some song names with only 6 characters show here as 5 character names, last charcter is missing. Once I save, I loose that character in the name forever. (I use Unicode encoding). 3) No auto-save for changed tags.

Sadly this app is no longer a freeware. Before you spend an hour trying to download it from the author's very slow responding site in China, here's the content of an enclosed text file "limitations of unregistered copy". -- Unregistered copy has no time limit, but has feature limitations: - The song table only show 12 songs each time. - You can not edit the song tag with an external editor. After you register the copy, the ID3Mod will unlock the limitations when you restart ID3Mod. It's only $19 (USD) per copy, I will send you the activation code in 4 hours. --- Thanks but no thanks; I'm sticking to the older version. Other than the new 12 songs limit and external editing, no other new "feature" is mentioned... so why bother upgrading? It's only $19?!

The new version of ID3Mod will be released soon. It will integerate with iTunes and it can load up to 2000 songs a time now. I'm just waiting for my intel based Mac, maybe I should release a PPC version first, and UB version later.

I don't know why people are so critical of this little free app. This is absolutely the best app to transform all your messed up MP3 ID tags into legible formats on Mac... 2 thumbs up! And don't try to load ALL 500 songs at one time! Considering this is a free app, give it a little slack and try to load maybe 100 at a time and see how that goes...

I got some reports that the ID3Mod won't work on OSX 10.3.8. OSX10.3.8 updated an API in Cocoa, which will make ID3Mod ignore the mp3 files. I made some adjustment so ID3Mod will work on both new and old system. But www.sinomac.com is busy with their new XServe machine. So, I have to wait until they finished their works to upload the new ID3Mod.

ID3Mod cannot export my mp3s in the greek encoding. It doesnt export files at all. I don't know if this is a bug caused by the encoding or something else.

Ridiculously complicated. Also, can't drag-n-drop mp3 files onto open editing window. Too bad, as those PC mp3's sure do need work when transferred to Mac, and I'm sick of MP3 Rage.
