So, hopefully this is the correct place to ask, though if not, forgive me.

I'm reorganizing my music library and correctly updating missing and corrupted ID3 tags on my mp3s, however, I've run into an issue. One of the audio files that I have was written around 1400 BC (Hurrian Hymn #6) and I'm not sure how to correctly format that. Is the mp3 tagging format capable of doing this?

  • Btw, up to ID3 v2.3 the year tag was a 4-character string, so no real way to enter -1400 or 1400BC. ID3 v2.4 uses a subset of ISO-8601 for timestamps, but the optional extension for years outside of the range 0-9999 in ISO-8601 isn't implemented in ID3. So the answer is no. – Your Uncle Bob May 25 '19 at 2:49

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about music practice or theory as outlined in the help center. – Todd Wilcox May 25 '19 at 5:16
