Yes, Screamer Radio is really good at what it does. I have been impressed with how easily it can find and download lots and lots of my favourite music. Wow!! The problem is not as much what Screamer can do, but what it doesn't do!
First, the worst: Screamer does not tag the files! What an opportunity to miss: Recording and naming the files, but not tagging them! It is almost unbelievable!
Secondly, the file name order can not be changed. And for my setup the default order is wrong. It is "Artist, Titel, Album", but should be "Artist, Album, Title" Well, really is should be "Artist, Album, Track, Title", but I can accept that the track number is missing.
Third and finally, the album name is surrounded with square brackets, which also is wrong. It is like this: Alan Munde Gazette - Little Teardrops [CD_Made To Last].mp3
, but should preferably
look like this: Alan Munde Gazette - Made To Last - Little Teardrops.mp3
Now that I am complaining, I would also like to yell at Mp3tag
Very often I have read praises of this program, so today I decided to actually USE my copy! But to no avail. When I added the first file from Screamer, Al Batten And The Blue Grass Reunion - Sucking The Corn [CD_Live At The Kinston Winter Bluegrass Festival].mp3
, Mp3tag & freedb suggested that it was the German national hymn!! Seriously!!!
Why are people recommending Screamer Radio and Mp3tag? Well, that really wasn't a fair question. So please allow me then to ask: What can I do to (batch rename and) auto tag the files from Screamer Radio, please?
