Tag field mappings

Tag fields in Mp3tag

The table below gives an overview of all ID3v2 / MP4 / WMA tag fields available with Mp3tag, their names in Mp3tag and their use in other programs.
You can edit these tag fields through the extended tag dialog, add custom fields to the Tag Panel via 'Options > Tag Panel' or customize the file list columns using these field names.

Please note that fields of VorbisComments (used with FLAC, OGG, SPX) and of APEv2 tags are not mapped internally by Mp3tag but are displayed with their actual name unless they have a user-defned mapping.

In case you need to change one of the mappings (e.g., for using consistent field names across formats), you can create user-defined field mappings.
