Change Encoding Converts the tags of individual files or clusters between different character encodings. This is often necessary with files that have only ID3v1 tags in a non-Latin encoding. foolip 0.9a - 0.11 here You will probably only need to change the target encoding. If the encoding you're looking for isn't in the list, you can type it in yourself and it will hopefully work.
