Changing "-R" to "-l" in line 91 fixes the problem entirely. I tested it with a new file and it worked, then tested it with the same file again and it correctly said ": already tagged, 89.453 BPM"

It's weird 'man id3v2' still documents the -R switch, but is is however not recognized.

If you can provide a patch for the bpm-tag script, I'd be happy to add it and mention you as a contributor.

This seems to have been created for a different version of id3v2. When I run bpm-tag, it says id3v2: invalid option -- 'R' and won't update the tags in the mp3 file, though it does output the BPM to stderr.

I wrote this little workaround to tag everything in my music library:


find -type f -iname "*.mp3" | while read FILE
    BPM=`bpm-tag -n "$FILE" 2>&1 > /dev/null | grep BPM | awk '{print $(NF-1)}'` #105.587
    echo $FILE $BPM
    id3v2 --TBPM $BPM "$FILE"
