Apple iTunes Instructions & Help : ID3 Tags & Song Metadata for iTunes


Hey everybody! My name is Matt and I’m speaking
to you on behalf of Expert Village. iTunes files use what called the ID3 tag. What the
ID3 tag is it’s a metadata container, which is basically just some extra information about
the MP3s. It usually contains information such as the title, the artist, the album,
the track number, and sometimes other information about the file. If you look at any given file
under the name of the track number and artist as I just said, this is how iTunes knows the
information. It makes it easier to search for tracks than searching based on file names.
When you download a track to your iPod or your iPhone, this is how you’re going to navigate
to the tracks. You can change this information by clicking on a track and then going up to
file and click get info, and then click on the info tab. You can change the name or the
artist or whatever. You can change any of the ID3 tags. Just go ahead and click okay.
There are also other programs that you can use to batch at these tags. My personal favorite
program is called Tigotago. It’s a free program and it allows you to batch edits, ID3 tags,
so you can arrange your MP3s very easily. If you’d like to know more about that program,
all you have to do is run a search on. That’s TIGOTAGO. Just put that in Google and you
can learn more about ID3 tags.
