I want to be able to use the subtitle tag (TT3/TIT3) as a source for renaming files. (Podcasts from NPR put the time and date of the newscast in the subtitle field.) I checked the id3.py source to see if I could grasp how to add that. I see that there is a defined TT3/TIT3 class for this purpose but it never gets referenced. Would this be easy to add?

    easyid3.py is used to do the tag retrieval, this allows using the same interface for flac, ogg, etc ...

    I can try to add this tag, but I don't have any files to test with. Can you post a link to an NPR download you know has the subtitle set ?

    Thanks for such a quick response! I have attached a sample NPR news file.

    Did some research with the attached file and others downloaded from the NPR site. It looks like they are actually placing the subtilte as a comment (the COMM tag). Retrieving this tag is much more difficult than most, but I will try. This might have to be escalated to the mutagen developers.
