ID3 is a general tagging format for audio, which makes it possible to store meta data (album, year, genre, ...) about the audio inside the audio file itself.
This freeware tool removes and lists ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags from MP3 files.
This is useful if you encounter incorrect tags in your MP3 files or if you wish to upgrade the tags in your files. ID3KILL has the option of only removing ID3v1 or ID3v2 tags should you wish to preserve one of the two, and can recursively search within subdirectories if you want total annihilation. ID3KILL can even modify files marked read-only, provided the storage medium allows it. Simple, easy, removes ID3 tags within a few clicks!
The latest version adds an option to clean up M3U and PLS playlists, removing title and length information (EXTINF). This saves another few kbytes of hard disk space. For more details see included HTML documentation.
