Mp3tag Version: 2.47b



Hello,

One of the things I love about mp3tag is that when I use the copy and paste feature, it copies 100% of my tags. "Non-standard tags" (like the ones Musicbrainz Picard inserts) are preserved when using copy and paste. I love it! Kudos to the mp3tag team on that one. Now onto my issue.

I have need to copy and paste tags from one set of files to another set of files. My issue is that I'm working with over 11,000 files. Is there a way that I can automate the copy and paste operation? The standard Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V is not going to cut it when we're talking about 11,000 files. I may have need to perform this big tag copy in the future, so doing it manually is out of the question. Can the copy and paste functionality be accessed via the command line? If so, I could script this. Any ideas?

Just to be clear, I'm looking to copy 100% of my tags, not just a few fields like artist, album, etc. It is my understanding that the Tag Copy, Tag Paste is the only route I can go to achieve this.

Thanks in advance.

I've made a tool that helps Mp3tag export all tags of your files to a text file.
