I am looking for a tool which can identify tracks within an mp3 image so I can access the tracks independently.

What is going on is that I have downloaded an album from youtube that has never been released as a CD (yet) and the audio is reasonable. I plan to strip the audio out so that I end up with an mp3 album image that I would like to be able to identify the individual tracks in so I can access them individually and label them. Basically, I want to manually create all the album metadata.

Is there anything available that might be able to do this?

mp3DirectCut has pause detection, which you can then save as a CUE sheet that works in foobar2000. You can also use utils like pcutmp3 with such a CUE sheet to split the mp3 into potentially-gapless separate files.

The latest mp3DirectCut also works with raw AAC files (not MP4 or M4A files - you need to extract the raw AAC stream - some video convertors will do this for you or tools like ffmpeg, I think). That could also be useful for modifying the audio from videos, which is often natively stored in AAC (though some audio extraction tools transcode to mp3 instead).

Edit: I meant to mention that pause detection might not be totally accurate, so you might need to edit the CUE file in Notepad to remove spurious tracks and/or title the tracks.

Actually, you are right... I just checked and the audio is in fact AAC. I don't know why I just assumed it was mp3. Yes, I plan to extract the audio using (probably) ffmpeg and get rid of the slide show video which I don't care about anyway.

So is a cuesheet the only way to go for this?

It's the easiest if you only intend to play back in fb2k

If you want to play on a phone a DAP or in a car, I guess you can use mp3directcut to split the AAC at the CUE points. If it doesn't need to be gapless that's probably OK. You could then wrap the AAC up in an MP4 and probably name it .m4a for compatibility.
