I had some mp3s I downloaded from a publisher’s website, but they were all shift-jis encoded but marked as latin1. A common thing in Japan, unicode is still not at complete saturation. This script I completely whipped up is very single-purpose, one-shot. You’ll likely have to modify it if you’re having a similar problem.
import os import mutagen.id3 def findMP3s(path): for child in os.listdir(path): child= os.path.join(path, child) if os.path.isdir(child): for mp3 in findMP3s(child): yield mp3 elif child.lower().endswith(u'.mp3'): yield child for path in findMP3s('.'): id3= mutagen.id3.ID3(path) for key, value in id3.items(): if value.encoding!=3: for i in range(len(value.text)): value.text[i]= value.text[i].encode('latin1').decode('shift-jis') value.encoding= 3 id3.save()
