I've got a bunch of mp3 files that were ripped off my CDs by software that didn't add artist/album metadata. That information is encoded in the file path, though, and I'd like to insert it into the metadata so that programs like Musicmatch can display them nicely.

My first thought on how to do this is to use PyMedia to decode a file, then recode it back in the same format (mp3) but with the metadata added. (The metadata I can parse from the file path easily.)

I have a couple of questions before I embark on this, though:

1) Is there a better way to do this?
2) Will decode/encode reduce the sound quality? Is mp3 a lossy compression format?

Thanks,
-Dr. Z

Hmm,
PyMedia does not support demuxing separately at the moment. There is a use case for having it though.
Right I would not recommend decode/encode as it will degrade sound quality. Not sure how much but it will.
I will have it in a bin list for PyMedia release 1.3.
