How to convert unreadable mp3 tag in Ubuntu?

In Asian language (for me, Thai) always suffer unreadable mp3 tag. Here is a workaround to solve it.

install python-mutagen with this command

sudo apt-get install python-mutagen

cd to directory that your files at

and use it with this command

find . -iname "*.mp3" -execdir mid3iconv -e [encode] {} \;


you can choose encode that suit to your language here. For Thai user use ISO-8859-11
