    Linux alternative to Mp3tag (handles long file names !!)

    Hi folks

    If you use Linux on a NAS or on a VM (Virtual Machine) there's an alternative to the Windows Mp3tag (very good but unfortunately suffers from problem windows has with long file names -- not Mp3tag's fault I hasten to add).

    Program is puddletag -- on Ubuntu / Fedora / CENTOS / RHEL it can be installed via package manager --e.g yum install --- other distros might be in the package manager but source is available if you have gcc and make installed.

    Good thing about this it doesn't have the Windows file length restrictions.

    Easy Tag might be the solution and it will be in your default repos.
