IDEA: Adding ID3 Tag info to MP3 Based on folder name
« on: February 04, 2006, 11:40:15 PM »
I have a large collection of around 720 metallica bootleg concerts in mp3 format all on a hard disk at home. They are organized as such

d:\metallica\82-11-19 - halifax, nova scotia
d:\metallica\85-04-01 - London, England
etc

I want to take the folder names (82-11-19 - halifax, nova scotia, 85-04-01 - London, England) and make those the ALBUM tag in every mp3 in its respective folder, is there a way to do this with an AHK script? I also want all fo the mp3's in every folder to have the artist value set to Metallica, but I think that can be done with another tool. Any ideas?

Get MusicBrainz. http://musicbrainz.org/

Doesn't do exactly what you want, but it may be a step in the right direction.

Any respectable MP3 tag program should be able to do both things you want. I can say for sure that The Godfather can.

agreed. my favourite -> Mp3 Tag Tools

some of the features:
  • Tag mp3s even while playing them
  • Mass ID3 tagging
  • Write ID3 tags from Filenames using Custom Filename Format
  • Rename Filenames From ID3 tags using Custom Filename or Directory Format
  • Remove All ID3v1.1 or ID3v2.x tags
  • Remove All Non-ID3 tags
  • Create ID3 tags using Directory Formats
  • Create Directories and organize mp3s from ID3 tag info
  • Selectively Copy or Synchronize ID3v1.1 & ID3v2.x tags

slightly outdated but worth a try... :up:
