For the purposes of this post I’ve tagged a royal free sound file from Bensound.com licensed under Creative Commons license. I’m trying to get Picard to purge extended tags through either tagger scripting or with the Keep tags plugin or a combination of the two. I was asked to post an example of the issue I was running into by the plugin author. Basically I am unable to delete extended tags with Picard. They are simply ignored.
The Keep tags plugin line I am attempting to use is:
I have tried that with and without a series of $delete commands to purge extra tags which were not being deleted. All the extended tags which do not get deleted start with TXXX in the output below.
How can I script either the delete of an arbitrary extended tag or get the Keep tags plugin to do that without completely clearing all tags using the “clear existing tags” option?
Basically I’m looking to purge certain extended garbage tags such as: Uploaded by, URL, iTunMOVI, Comment [ID3v1 Comment], Ripping tool, Supplier, Source, Rip date, Upload.
This is the output of mutagen-inspect for a file tagged with the problem fields:
