ID3 Editing and Scripting Tool
The --delete (-d) option instructs
to remove ID3 tags from the file (or files). If no argument is
specified, all tags are deleted:
$ idest --delete *.mp3
After this operation, all ID3 data are irrevocably lost, so use it with caution.
A list of frame names can be given either with the --filter
option, or (for compatibility with
idest 1.x) as an argument to
--delete (similarly to --query). For example, to
delete only comment and genre tags:
$ idest --delete --filter=comment,genre *.mp3
$ idest --delete=comment,genre *.mp3
Specifying ‘comment’ (a non-qualified form) results in removing all comment frames. To remove a particular one, use its qualified form:
$ idest --delete --filter=comment::Bit_Rate track01.mp3
The same applies to other frames that can appear multiple times (see Frames).
