Scan large music library to find and edit un-needed tags
Hi all, here's hoping some kind and clever soul can help ;0)
Have recently migrated to Linux - Fedora 23 to be precise. Loving everything about it! Have imported my existing music library, which library has been created from a number of sources across the years. While all future media will be limited to those more completely supported in Linux, I do have quite a few WMA format files, as these were obviously supported under Windows.
I have no trouble playing these files nor getting my music player of choice to edit certain of the tags, but Kid3 exposes EVERYTHING that's attached to a file. Nice! But if neither Linux nor my player need, for example <WM/Provider>, etc. etc. basically about ten or more tags that good ole' WMPlayer attached for me (thanks MS) then I presume I can safely remove them? Bit obsessive perhaps, but with a large library I like the player to handle the minimum amount of necessary tags.
Since music files are managed via "mime types" in Linux, I presume I would therefore need to create some form of shell script that would simply strip all specific tags from file types within my music library, as they're not otherwise "supported" as I presently understand that term.
Any helpful suggestions welcomed :0)
