View Full Version : How to ignore ID3v1 tags?

I use a utility called "MP3 Tag Tools" which can do the same. The
problem is that I have defined custom v2 tags (e.g. "Chillout") which
don't exist in v1. There's no option to set custom tags in v1, and so I
can't set the v1 tags automatically. I have to go in and manually
change the v1 tags to the closest match to my custom v2 tags :(

Don;t know about the slimserver answer, but... Tag&Rename can
sync all your V1 tags to V2 tags (and visa versa) in a single click.

Hi,

I've spent some time sorting out all my ID3v2 tags (as these are
the ones I want my squeezebox to use) but last night I realised that in
the absence of ID3v2 tags, squeezebox reads ID3v1 tags. That in itself
isn't an issue, but I realised also that squeezebox reads genre
information from ID3v1 too. This means that I've got a whole lot of
genres that I don't want that are being read from ID3v1.

Can I configure squeezebox to ignore ID3v1? Or do I have to go
through my music collection and correct all the ID3v1 tags too? :-(

Cheers!

I use ID3-TagIt for ID3 management and it works very well.
You can remove ID3v1 or v2 tags just as easy as it is to
copy between and sync them and what not.

I prefer the only-v2 way, and that works like a charm for me ;)
