ID3 Tag Basics


I just read a great article at Anything But iPod that explains what ID3 tags are and how you use them.  According to the site,

“ID3 tags are basically information tags inside the MP3 file that tell the player all sorts of things. It can be as simple as artist and album or as complex as having 20 high resolution images of the cover and booklet inside the same MP3 file. Read on for a roundup of this feature and a how to on tagging your files.”

The article explains in easy to understand terms how your mp3 player uses these tags to display your music information.  It goes on to show you how to add missing ID3 tags as well.  This is a must-read if you have an mp3 player.

You can read it here.
