Find Duplicate Music Files detects music files that contain the same music, even if the files are differently named, and are in different formats such as MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4A, and RealAudio and contain different or non-existent meta-information such as ID3 tags. The program operates on whole directories of music files, analyzes them, and outputs the filenames of pairs that seem similar, based on their audio fingerprint or perceptual hash.
The True Audio (TTA) codec is a simple realtime lossless audio compressor. It performs lossless compression on multichannel 8, 16, and 24 bit data of Wav audio files. The compression ratios depend on the type of music file being compressed, but the compression size will generally range between 30%-70% of the original. TTA supports both ID3v1 and ID3v2 information tags.
Wagtail is a client/server-based tool for audio encoding. It is designed to make it easier to encode and organize files in bulk. Wagtail allows you to enforce standards across your media collection with the use of "formats", each describing an audio format, how to encode/tag, etc. It also uses "classes", a combintation of formats and quality settings, as well as "tasks", which set the naming conventions, file locations, and reprocessing stages for files, and restricts which classes can be used. It includes wagdisc for ripping CDs and wagfile for processing files.
cdname.py names MP3 files and generates M3U playlists from CDDB/freedb INF files. (These are often retrieved with cdda2wav -L). MP3s and playlists can be named using any combination of artist name, track title, album name, track number, etc. Many aspects are configurable via command line options. It should complement most ripping/encoding pipelines well.
Thundaural Jukebox is a jukebox server and client designed for use with touchscreen. It is an ideal replacement for a stationary stereo system in a common area (lounge, pool room, bar, etc.). The interface to the server is generic enough to support different kinds of clients, the included client, written for a touchscreen, is just one possibility.
mp3cleanup is used to tidy up various aspects of MP3 files, including filenames, ID3 tags, path, m3u playlists, and bitrate. This is particularly useful for hardware MP3 players that sometimes have arbitrary limitations on the files they work (well) with. It can operate on single files or on all the files contained in a directory.
ova is a convenient console frontend for ripping CDs and encoding MP3 and wave files to the Ogg Vorbis format. It is also able to query the CDDB given a CD (or saved CD discid) or several MP3/Ogg Vorbis/wave files (very useful for downloaded albums). Ogg Vorbis files can be tagged and renamed according to elaborate patterns.
Mp3tag is an Objective-Caml library for reading and writing ID3v1 and v2 tags in MP3 files. It includes mp3tag tools, which can be used to modify tags in MP3 files or rename files according to their tags, and a cddbtag tool that modifies tags by using a CDDB server to retrieve information about the track.
Sonic-Rainbow is a Linux GUI multimedia player. It plays DVDs, VCDs, and video files. It plays CDs, rips CDs to Ogg, MP3, FLAC, and WAV files, and has an Ogg, MP3, FLAC and WAV player, as well as a playlist editor and a TAG editor to create and modify MP3, Ogg, and FLAC file tags. HTTP is used to download and locally store CD Info from Freedb such that the CD player, ripper, Ogg player, FLAC Player, and MP3 player are able to display CD track and artist information. The GUI playlist editor creates playlists containing single Ogg, FLAC, or MP3 files and directories of Ogg, FLAC, or MP3 files. It provides support for FM radio cards if installed.
