Support » Plugin: Sermon Manager » Setting id3 tags in mp3 from sermon data

  • I’ve developed an addon plugin that allows you to set the id3 tags in the mp3 file directly from the sermon data. i.e. it sets title, preacher etc. and inserts the album art when the sermon is saved.

    This allows the downloaded mp3 to have the correct tags, and ensures that the image in the podcast is correct etc. without having to bother setting the tags before uploading the mp3. It also ensures consistency between the data in the sermon and that in the .mp3

    The integration with the existing plugin is not perfect (you have to manually update the getid3 library on installation), but if there is any interest, this could probably be tidied up.

    Note that this is in a sense the opposite of the existing addon, which updates the sermon data from the id3 tags in the mp3 file

  • Mike, I would be very interested in this addon/plugin. Do you have it available somewhere?

    You are welcome to give it a try, but I must emphasise this is still a work in progress (and is my first attempt at a plugin), so you do so at your own risk. It hasn’t had much testing in different environments so far.

    Oh! one thing which might be a show stopper for you. In order to modify the id3 tags the sermon mp3 files MUST be stored locally in uploads. If you are storing them somewhere else such as Amazon S3, then this won’t work for you. I haven’t figured out how to modify the tags of a remotely stored file (I suspect I would have to copy it to local storage, modify the tags and then write it back, which doesn’t sound like fun).

    You can copy the zip file from:-

    Read the readme for installation instructions. You MUST copy the id3tags library as described, and you MUST enable the addon plugin AFTER the parent plugin.

    Note that I have also slightly modified the RSS feed for my own preferences. The replacement feed is in includes/podcast-feed.php
    You can modify this to your own preferences, or if you want to continue to use the original from sermon manager you could comment out the lines
    remove_action(‘do_feed_podcast’, ‘wpfc_sermon_podcast_feed’, 10, 1);
    add_action(‘do_feed_podcast’, ‘wpfc_tag_sermon_podcast_feed’, 10, 1);
    in includes/podcast-functions.php

    The album art image is that set as “cover image” in sermon manager.

    Let me know how you get on.
