NAME
     mp3unicode	-- Convert MP3 tags to Unicode

SYNOPSIS
     mp3unicode	[options] file1	[file2]	[...]

DESCRIPTION
     mp3unicode	MP3Unicode is a	command	line utility to	convert	ID3 tags in
     mp3 files between different encodings.

     In	order to see the available encodings execute:

	   iconv --list

OPTIONS
     -s, --source-encoding _encoding_
	    Read current mp3 tags assuming they	are encoded with <encoding>.
	    <encoding> is either "unicode" or any valid	8bit encoding.

     -1, --id3v1-encoding _encoding_
	    Write id3v1	tag in <encoding>, if <encoding> is "none", then strip
	    id3v1 tag away. <encoding> may be any valid	8bit encoding, note
	    however that it is not possible to write id3v1 in Unicode.

     -2, --id3v2-encoding _encoding_
	    Write id3v2	tag in <encoding>, if <encoding> is "none", then strip
	    id3v2 tag away. <encoding> may be either "unicode" or any valid
	    8bit encoding.

     -p, --preserve-unicode
	    If source encoding is specified to be some specific	encoding and
	    not	Unicode, but the actual	encoding seems to be Unicode, then as-
	    sume it is Unicode.	E.g., if you want to process a lot of files,
	    some of which are in Unicode (or have Unicode characters some-
	    where), but	some are in cp1251, just issue -s cp1251 -p along with
	    other options. This	should work as you would like it to work.

     -w, --preview
	    Do not modify the files, instead show the tags that	would be writ-
	    ten. Useful	to test	specified options for correctness.

     -v, --version
	    Prints version number, compilation date and	time.

     -q, --quiet
	    Do not report what files have been processed.

EXAMPLE
     mp3unicode	--source-encoding cp1251 --id3v1-encoding none
     --id3v2-encoding unicode file.mp3

     will read id3v2 tag (or id3v1 tag if there	is no id3v2) from the file,
     convert the text fields in	the tag	from cp1251 to Unicode and will	write
     id3v2 tag back, stripping away id3v1 tag.
