Hey Florian,

Awesome Awesome tagger ya got here...

Only thing I don't like is the freedb support - I'm not a big fan of the freedb because of the multiple instances of every album etc. - can get somewhat messy.

I am a stickler for tagging my music the correct way and producing filenames that match and your program does this beautifully.

I liked Tag&Rename for only one reason and that wasfor the AMG support it had, when that went out the door because of the TOS I started looking and came across your nice little proggy.

Clean - No BS - That's what I like.

I was wandering around looking at the AMG site to match and make sure a set of freedb tags was correct - which is terribly painful because the AMG site sux, when it occured to me....

Have you thought about using http://ubl.artistdirect.com as a source for the tagging? TOS seems to be OK, might need to read it closer, but might be worth making a parser so that it can grab info from it.

Could be better than the freedb - dunno how many entries it actually has, but it seems to be a fairly complete listing.

Give me some feedback on what you might think about this and whether it might be possible to try it.

I am glad that you haven't gone the route of Amazon or some such... but this could be a valid alternative if at all possible.

I do know that The Godfather has actually used a script to go ahead and use the AMG site but thier program is such a clusterbeep that I am not even interested.

I have actually passed your program on to some other peeps and we all agree it is awesome.

With the addition of a better tagging source and... well my one wee thing is...
I sure would like to have the album art in my file... I know I know I have read the forums, but I like that because I like having it load when I am listening to my music.

Other than that - perfect - easy to use - no extra dumb crap and a clean interface.
MP3Tag doesnt do everything some of the other programs, but it does the things it does beautifully... the things I want it to do.

Keep up the excellent work smile.gif

Thanks,
G13

Dano,

I did what you said but the artistdirect.src file doesn't show up... what am I doing wrong?

If I do this correctly will it place a artistdirect dropdown in my web lookup button in the program GUI?

Sorry about this, I must seem dumb as a rock... huh.gif

Thanks for your help,
G13
