RFS: mp3splt/mp3wrap - tools for splitting and "wrapping" audio files

Hi all -- I'm looking for a sponsor for mp3splt and mp3wrap :)

Thse are tools for splitting MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files without
reencoding, and for packing/unpacking the AlbumWrap format, which is a
sort of multi-track album archive in MP3. They're licensed under the

These tools were requested in wnpp bug #177711, where Bas Zoetekouw wrote:

mp3wrap is different from qmp3join -- it rolls metadata into the target
MP3 file so that the filenames and ID3 tags for the individual tracks
can be later extracted, and it also allows inclusion of text or binary
data in the MP3 archive. qmp3join is, as the manpage says, a better but
restrictive cat for MP3 files.

Aside from unpacking these wrapped archives, mp3splt offers similar
functionality to qmp3cut. mp3splt can also handle Ogg Vorbis and VBR MP3
files, which qmp3cut cannot.


The packages are lintian clean and available at:


thanks for considering

Package: mp3wrap
Description: Utility for MP3 wrapping (rolling multiple MP3s into one)
 Command-line utility that wraps multiple MP3 files into a a single, playable
 MP3, without losing filenames or ID3 information, and without reencoding. Also
 supports archiving non-audio data such as playlists, info files, and cover
 images inside the MP3. These files can be unpacked later (using mp3splt, e.g.);
