This Action allows you to edit all tags supported by the popular multimedia player Nullsoft Winamp 2.x/5.x:

Tag name
ID3 frame
The 'Title/Songname/Content description' tag is the actual name of the piece (e.g. "Adagio", "Hurricane Donna").
The 'Lead artist/Lead performer/Soloist/Performing group' is used for the main artist.
The 'Album/Movie/Show title' tag is intended for the title of the
recording (or source of sound) from which the audio in the file is taken.
The 'Composer' tag is intended for the name of the composer.

Encoded by
The 'Encoded by' tag contains the name of the person or organisation that encoded the audio file. This field may contain a copyright message, if the audio file also is copyrighted by the encoder.

Track #
The 'Track number/Position in set' tag is a numeric string containing the order number of the audio-file on its original recording. This may be extended with a "/" character and a numeric string containing the total number of tracks/elements on the original recording. E.g. "4/9".
The 'Year' tag is a numeric string with a year of the recording. This frames is always four characters long (until the year 10000).
The 'Genre' tag is used for the song genre.
Original artist
The 'Original artist(s)/performer(s)' tag is intended for the performer(s) of the original recording, if for example the music in the file should be a cover of a previously released song. The performers are separated with the "/" character.

The 'Copyright message' tag, which must begin with a year and a space character (making five characters), is intended for the copyright holder of the original sound, not the audio file itself. The absence of this tag means only that the copyright information is unavailable or has been removed, and must not be interpreted to mean that the sound is public domain. Every time this field is displayed the field must be preceded with "Copyright © ".

User defined URL link tag. This tag cannot be changed in the unregister version of the program.

This tag is indended for any kind of full text information that does not fit in any other tags.

This Action is added to the Action List by pressing the "Add the Action" button
() on the Action List toolbar and selecting the "Edit Winamp tags" from the drop-down menu. Action can also be added from the main menu of the program.

The Action can be added to the Action List only once.

This window will be added to Working Panel:

The data in input fields are added according to the chosen methods of reading and saving tags.

You can use all buttons on the Working Panel toolbar.

1. All operations with items in the Selection List are performed virtually, i.e. without automatically saving the changes to the files on your disk. For saving of changes you should perform Actions. It can be done with the button on the Main toolbar.
2. Add the Action "Save the changes" any time when you want to save the made changes while Performing Actions. For example, if you add some tag editing Actions, it will be absolutely logical to add this Action after them. After that you can add Actions generating playlists, etc.
3. If you want to get the cleared/modified data back, the data from file(s) can be read for the second time. It can be done with the button on the Working Panel toolbar.
