Copy all meta data from one flac file to another
Is there an easy way to copy all meta-data from one flac file to another?

Is there a reason you can't simply copy the FLAC file itsef?

Drag both files onto Mp3tag.  "CTRL+C" on the source file, then "CTRL+V" on the destination file.  Can also be done on multiple files at once if they are in the same order.

This should work (at least on a *nix shell) to copy metadata from a to b:

Code: [Select]
 metaflac --export-tags-to=- a.flac | metaflac --import-tags-from=- b.flac

The audio is different. One has the meta-data and a bad rip from dBpoweramp. The other has less meta-data, but a repaired rip from CueRipper/CueTools.

I've also used foobar2000 to copy all tags in the past:

Right click, Properties on the first track. Select first tag, hold Shift and click last tag. Under Tools/Selection/Copy all selected.
Select second track. Under Properties/Tools/Paste fields.
