Where are mp3 music info fields stored? - freeDB, CDDB

When you download information about a song from CDDB or freeDB, where is that information stored?

Is it appended to the mp3 or ogg file?
Is the album cover image appended to the music file?
Is it the case that once you have this information incorporated into the music file you have it as long as you have that file?
What if you want to edit the music file? Does that affect the music DB info?
I cant find this info on the web - maybe it is too basic.

All that stuff is stored in the .mp3 itself. If you want more info than that, go searching for the ID3 v2 specification, but be warned that it’s dry reading.

It’s called the ID3

Perfect. Thanks for that. :slight_smile:
