ID3v2 Chapter Tool

Contact: Chris Newell


ID3v2ChapterTool is an application which allows you to author and embed chapter information in your audio files. Chapters in this context could be any of the following:

  • chapters within an audiobook
  • articles within a podcast
  • individual tracks within a multi-track audio file

The information is embedded within audio files using a new specification for signalling that has been developed by, an organisation which maintains the ID3v2 standard for signalling metadata within audio files. For further information go to

The application requires Java 1.4 and JMF 2.1.1e but should also work with later versions.
