Mp3tag Version: v2.49



Sorry if this has been answered before but i am new to Mp3tag.

I have filenames but no tags, what is the best way of getting Mp3tag to convert these filenames to tags without manaully cuting and pasteing.

Examples of the files names below

Elton John Benny And The Jets.mp3
Creedence Clearwater Revival Sweet Home Alabama.mp3
Brooke Benton A Lovers Question.mp3
Cameo Its Like Candy.mp3
Eddy Grant Walking On Sunshine.mp3

Thanks

Has been answered many times before, use search.
But anyway:
Your examples are really bad filenames. There is no marker between artist and title, so Mp3Tag has no chance to detect what is what.

You can use the Filenname - Tag Converter mt_ftt.png with the following formatstrings:

%artist% %title%
for artists with one word like: Cameo Its Like Candy.mp3

%artist% %artist% %title%
for artists with two words like: Elton John Benny And The Jets.mp3, Brooke Benton A Lovers Question.mp3, Eddy Grant Walking On Sunshine.mp3

%artist% %artist% %artist% %title%
for artists with three words like: Creedence Clearwater Revival Sweet Home Alabama.mp3

...


%title%
to get the whole name in the title and don't care about the artist
