'''MusicBrainz Picard''' is a cross-platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) application written in Python and is the official MusicBrainz tagger.
Picard supports the majority of audio file formats, is capable of using audio fingerprints ([[AcoustID]]s), performing CD lookups and [[Disc ID|disc ID]] submissions, and it has excellent Unicode support. Additionally, there are several [[Picard Plugins|plugins]] available that extend Picard's features.
When tagging files, Picard uses an album-oriented approach. This approach allows it to utilize the MusicBrainz data as effectively as possible and correctly tag your music. For more information, see the [[How To Tag Files With Picard|illustrated quick start guide to tagging]].
Picard is named after Captain Jean-Luc Picard from the TV series ''Star Trek: The Next Generation''.
