Projects / cutmp3


cutmp3 is a small command line MP3 editor. It lets you select sections of an MP3 interactively or via a timetable and save them to separate files without quality loss. Silence and ID3 tag searching are also possible. For playback it uses mpg123. The program works with VBR files and files bigger than 2GB. There is also a simple frontend for it, called xcutmp3.

            There is no need to really port it to OSX, it should
            compile if ncurses-dev, readline-dev and
            mpg321/mpg123 are installed via fink. Unfortunately I
            cannot try it, but I am willing to help.
