I saw this posted over on XP-erience a few days ago (been on vacation, showing my family the sights of Boston...), and decided to give it a whirl at the weekend, and found it to be an excellent extension to my Windows Explorer file browsing, so I thought other users of Neowin may enjoy this nice piece of software from Michael Mutschler.
MP3Ext is an extension for the Windows Explorer. It enhances it, so you can get information on MP3 files in many ways:
- A PropertyPage is installed, where you can fully edit the ID3-Tag
- An icon-handler for individual icons is included too (along with the ability to have themes for the icons...)
- Tooltips, when you simply leave the mouse over the MP3-file (only with IE4.0 Active Desktop), this feature is fully customizable...
- editing of multiple files
- ID3v2 support: this includes unlimited strings, classic support, ...
- automatic generation of the ID3-tag from the filename
- exporting the information in a file or clipboard
Additional features include :-
