Transferring FLAC tags to LAME mp3 tags (in Terminal)

Post by live4ever » Wed Apr 05, 2006 5:23 pm

I use Terminal to encode mp3s from my Max encoded FLAC files, I was wondering if there was any way to write the FLAC tags into IDv3 tags from the command line.

Currently I use:
FLAC --decode --stdout file.flac | LAME -V2 --vbr-new - file.mp3

What commands or arguements could I add to have the output mp3 have all the tags?

Thanks for the great app!

May I ask why you don't use Max to create MP3s from the FLAC files directly? If you do this the tags will be automatically transferred over.

If you want to use the command line, I am sure there is a linux program out there that does what you want- but I am not aware of one specifically.

There's a script on this page to do just that, I think. I haven't tested it.
