mpgtx is a tool to manipulate MPEG files. Its features include the
* mpgtx can currently split and join MPEG 1 video files and most
MPEG audio files.
* mpgtx can fetch detailed information from MPEG 1 and MPEG 2.
* mpgtx can demultiplex MPEG 1 and MPEG 2 files (System layer, Program
layer and Transport Layer).

mp3 files according to their ID3 tags. It reads and writes ID3v1,
