What is an MTE file?

An MTE file contains an export configuration for Mp3tag, a tool used to edit metadata of audio files. It stores information about how to export tag data associated with an audio file to a specified file format, such as .HTML, .CSV, .RTF, or .TXT.

You will most likely only encounter an Export Configuration MTE file if you are editing the metadata of audio files with Mp3tag. The program supports a variety of audio formats, including Advanced Audio Coding (.AAC), Audio Interchange File Format (.AIFF), Matroska (.MKA and .MKV), MPEG Layer 3 (.MP3), WAVE (.WAV), Ogg Vorbis (.OGG), and MPEG-4 (.MP4, .M4A, and .M4V).

Metadata is an important aspect of audio files because it stores information about the track, artist, genre, album art, lyrics, producer, and more for the file. This information is displayed by most audio players and is referenced for organizing the files. It is also essential for licensing music and providing proof of authorship.

You can save the configuration of export settings for tag data with Mp3tag by selecting File → Save configuration.... Mp3tag creates one or more MTE files storing the configuration and compresses it in a .ZIP archive.

To open and restore an export configuration in Mp3tag, extract the MTE files with a Zip compression utility to the following directory:

  • Windows XP - C:\​Documents and Settings\​[User]\​Application Data\​Mp3tag
  • Windows Vista - C:\​Users\​[User]\​AppData\​Roaming\​Mp3tag
  • Windows 7/8/8.1/10 - C:\​Users\​[User]\​AppData\​Roaming\​Mp3tag
