Howto: Convert your mp3 tags (id3v2 to id3v1) en masse

I posted an earlier version of this script to my blog and it worked fine but there was one little problem with it. When we processed the files, namely running eye3D, we did so synchronously. Essentially, the file notification came in from the Linux kernel and we processed the file at that time. This may be an issue of overflowing the inotify queue within the Linux kernel if there are a lot of files to process.

A better solution would be to add the file to an internal queue and process the files in a sub process using POE::Wheel::Run. Of course we will limit the number of sub processes :)

In order to use this, we would start the script and then copy the mp3s into the watched directory in whatever fashion we wished.

    Thanks to whomever added the second *readmore* block. I meant to do it when I got back from Starbucks but someone beat me to it :)
