I already installed Easytag on my Ubuntu but It's not good for editing multiple files. I want to change mp3 property information on multiple files. Does anyone know how to batch edit multiple mp3 files?


Ex Falso from the default Ubuntu repositories is more full featured for batch editing of .mp3 tags than EasyTAG. To install Ex Falso open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install exfalso  

The main thing that I use Ex Falso for is to generate song titles automatically from their file names. Ex Falso also shows additional tags that are not shown in EasyTAG.

  • any options for adding a cover of album? – PoRaG Nov 15 '17 at 9:49
  • Not in Ex Falso. In EasyTAG select the Images tab and then click the green + icon at the bottom to add an album cover to a song. You need to add the images one song at a time, however you can select all the songs in an album and save the changes with a single click when you are done adding the album cover to all the songs in an album. I have both EasyTAG and Ex Falso installed because I use them both. – karel Nov 15 '17 at 9:53
  • For the sake of completeness: EasyTag can also fill in tags (such as artist, title, album, track number) from file names. Conversely, it can also rename files based on these tags. – Jos Nov 15 '17 at 10:00
  • Yes but the Show scanner options in EasyTAG look like chicken scratch and I prefer to use the dropdown menu in Ex Falso because all the options in the dropdown Tags from Path menu are listed by their names so I can click to select the option that I want instead of typing a line of symbols in EasyTAG. – karel Nov 15 '17 at 10:08
