Hello

as Emby fully relies on id3tags for music and audiobooks, wouldn't it make sense to add some basic support to edit them directly in Emby?

Side question: Anybody has   tip for a linux cli tag editior (debian)? 🙂

Personally, I don't want any streaming software touching my files. I'm fine with being given the option to create metadata files than can live along side those files. Those can be ignored or nuked without lasting consequences. Once you modify a media file, there is no "undo". 

Though I've never had much success with it, many people swear by beets to tag, rename, and organize their media.

I do agree, Media Servers should not touch source files all the additional metadata can be kept separately.

In fact, I would be very cautious even letting anything (even able of) doing automatic tag changes to my files near my music library.
