Fix your music library: song names, album art, automatically

Filed under
Software

With every new version of media players, we get new beautiful album art views, recommendations and all kinds of sorting by genre, year, composer. These are all based on correct information stored in the songs 'tags'.

If you're like me and you download music from all over the place, rip CD's, swap songs with buddies, your library probably won't look this one, organized and sexy.

Information about your music is stored with your songs in ID3 tags. Manually editing these for an album works, but try editing a 12000 song library. This is where MusicBrainz and FixTunes come to the rescue.

You're in luck, because I'm going to show you how to fix those pesky details.
