    EasyTAG is an utility for viewing, editing and writing the tags of
    different audio files, using a GTK+ interface.
    
    Currently EasyTAG supports the following:
     - View, edit, write tags of MP3, MP2 files (ID3 tag), FLAC files (FLAC Vorbis
       tag), Ogg Opus, Ogg Speex and Ogg Vorbis files (Ogg Vorbis tag),
       MP4/M4A/AAC files (MPEG-4 Part 10 tag), and MusePack, Monkey's Audio files
       (APE tag);
     - Auto tagging: parse file and directory names using masks to automatically
       fill in tag fields;
     - Cover art support for all formats;
     - Rename files from the tag fields (using masks) or by loading a text file;
     - Process selected files of the selected directory;
     - Ability to browse subdirectories;
     - Recursion for tagging, removing, renaming, saving, etc;
     - Can set a field (artist, title, ...) on all other selected files;
     - Read file header information (bitrate, time, ...) and display it;
     - Undo and redo last changes;
     - Ability to process tag fields and file names (convert letters into
       uppercase, lowercase, etc);
     - Ability to open a directory or a file with an external program;
     - CDDB support (from http protocol);
     - A tree based browser;
     - A list to select files;
     - A playlist generator window;
     - A file searching window;
     - Simple and explicit interface.
    (I've used code tags to preserve the simple formatting of the text.)
    Thank you so much! I will give this a shot.

    Yet another update (that no one was waiting for):

    I did try EasyTag, In the end, it didn't allow me to update the information I wanted to.
    Personally, I didn't find it to be too user friendly, either.
    The auto-tagging was, for me, a pain in the neck.


    Unrelated: still trying to figure out how to view album art in Rhythmbox.

    Any suggestions?

    Been getting the hang of Ubuntu, and, I have to say, it really is intuitive when you get the hang of it.
    Very happy that I made the switch.

    But, Rhythmbox is the weak link. Honestly, not pleased with the interface.

    So, I'm on the prowl again for a user-friendly music player.

    I apologize if this is blasphemy, but is there anything out there that resembles iTunes more?
