Wiki: Detailed ID3v2 Tag Specification

The full specification for how OCR uses ID3v2 tags follows below. Mandatory fields are indicated in red. Note that all optional fields are the ReMixer's decision whether or not to include when submitting, and that unused fields may or may not be erased if filled in when submitted. The term "Exact" qualifies a field as matching with data already in the OCR database, where applicable.

All ID3v1 tags are stripped from mixes before they are posted; only the ID3v2 tags are used. Please do not put anything important in the optional ID3v1 tags as it will be removed.

A full explanation of the ID3v2 standard can be found at http://id3.org, along with a list of clients that support both reading and editing ID3v2 tags and additional resources.
