GNOME Music: Audio Tag Editing

Project Description

This project aims to add basic tag editing functionality to GNOME Music, hence making it more than just a read-only view of user's music collection. Desired deliverables for this feature would be:

  • An interface for the user to bring up music metadata
  • Manual editing of metadata using editable fields within this interface
  • Automatic fetching of metadata using acoustic fingerprints
