Description: (from website) MusicBrainz Picard is a cross-platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) application written in Python and is the official MusicBrainz tagger.
Picard supports the majority of audio file formats, is capable of using audio fingerprints (AcoustIDs), performing CD lookups and disc ID submissions, and it has excellent Unicode support. Additionally, there are several plugins available that extend Picard's features.
When tagging files, Picard uses an album-oriented approach. This approach allows it to utilize the MusicBrainz data as effectively as possible and correctly tag your music.
Plugins: Picard allows installing plugins by two methods, automatically via the Options->Plugins menu (which installs to %AppData%\MusicBrainz\Picard\plugins), or manually to one of two locations: InstallDir\plugins or the same folder as the automatic installer.
While both methods and both locations are supported by Picard Portable (note that manually installing to the path in %AppData% will only work while Picard Portable is running) I would recommend using the manual install method to install your plugins to
AppNamePortable\App\Picard\plugins as this will help keep startup times down for Picard Portable. For help on manually installing plugins see the advanced method listed on the plugins page.
