Mp3 Bitrate At A Glance...MP3ext
« on: September 26, 2005, 05:07:25 PM »
See what bitrate your mp3 files are from their icons!
Free open source application. :up: www.mutschler.de/mp3ext

.....

Has customizable tooltips, icons, & column handlers:



Edit your mp3 tags from the properties context menu
using a powerful tag editor:



There is a simlar tool here: www.audioshell.com that supports
other audio formats in addition to mp3. There is no icon support and
the editor is no where near as brilliant as in mp3ext. Nor do the tooltips
show stereo mode. If you want the tooltips for other formats from
Audioshell but the mp3 tooltips from MP3ext, install Audioshell first and then MP3ext.

;) Download my MP3ext theme here: http://www.deviantar...m/deviation/13820114
I hope you enjoy them if you use MP3ext! :D

Nice review and screenshots. I've used mp3ext many moons ago. I don't think they had the bitrate icon feature in it then.

This used to be one of my first installs after a format (whew, back on Win98...). Very cool program, the MP3 tab in the properties is a very usefull add on also.

I haven't installed it in a while though, I'm not sure why. Maybe because I've started getting full albums instead of individual files, and the importance of the bitrate has been replaced with having every track.

I have used mp3ext for years, but it doesn't support other tags and file formats like ogg, flac, etc...
AudioShell does, but doesn't have the same display of information in the taskbar or tag editing capability.
So, I am hoping someone has another such program on their list?

Install them in the order mentioned in the first post.
You'll have support for all the formats then.

Is there any way to get mp3ext to show VBR files as such?  Or is there another program that can do the same thing but also supports VBR detection?

Just done a spwsweeper scan. In the current version (4.5.8 (build 683), def file v 598) it flags up the registry key HKLM/software/MM as part of "Adware: elitemediagroup-mediamotor".

Just posted this so that people are warned as MP3ext uses this reg. key (and subkeys).
