Mp3tag Version: 2.32a



Hello,
I discovered Mp3tag today and it is a really nice piece of software!! I haven't seen another utility that supports such a wide range of media types (mp3, wma, ogg, aac, etc)

My situation is this: I have a lot of WMA files in a folder. Each day, a script I have written downloads new WMAs into that folder. The WMAs are from an internet radio show that I listen to. Problem is, the show is incorrectly tagging the WMA files so that the titles are all identical. This makes it very hard to tell what track is what when I play them in Windows Media Player.

So what I want to do is use Mp3tag to REMOVE all the tags from these WMA files. I would like to be able to do this from my script via some command-line arguments.

For example something like:

mp3tag "c:\folder\somefile*.wma" /stripall

(just an example)

what do you think? is there any way to do this? would it be possible to add? that would be incredible for me! wink.gif

Sorry, but Mp3tag is supposed to be an interactive program, not a command line utility.

Being a programmer I was looking for some kind of hook into MP3Tag for this reason. Command line or an API would be cool, most of what I do is automated, scheduled to occur everyday at the same time so I require the process to be 'unattended'

Here is my temporary solution and you will love this:

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/

It is easier than it looks, don't let the instructions make you shy away from total control of MP3Tag. This will automate anything you want and when you have the script down simply right click and compile it into an .exe. AND it is also free.

When I can I plan to send money to both of these very fine free software makers. Anytime you run into these free programs you must support them, they are worth more than many programs you pay for.

Mp3tag Version: 2.33a



(Hello, 1st post ^^)

Not only to shedule task!

In the spirit of winamp command we can run a folder like this : winamp.exe C:\myfolder.....

in the same way it could be Fantastic^^ to launch Mp3Tag on a specific folder
The purpose: I have a software to manage music which run winamp to play a music album, windows explorer to explore the folder, etc.....

and I don't want to develop a little (and bad) tag editor because Mp3Tag is the Best cool.gif


Best regards (© Florian)

hello ssj,
yes I agree it would be fantastic.. however it appears for now that the developers have no plan to make any command line parameters... <sigh> oh well maybe if enough people post in this thread they may reconsider? wink.gif

You can use
CODE
Mp3tag.exe /fp:"C:\My great music\"

for that.

No, don't worry. This a hidden and undocumented feature smile.gif

It would be nice, if nothing else, if you could run one or more Mp3tag Actions from the command-line. That would be simple, but potentially very powerful.

Seems like a waste of time and energy to interactively open Mp3tag just to perform an Action. This is probably what I do 90% of the time that I use Mp3tag - open the program, select all the files in the directory, apply an Action, close the program.

It's certainly very nice that a clean, well-designed interactive interface is there, but for many tasks it's unnecessary.

No. Those are used for the Explorer context menu.

Thanks for that - very useful...

... sufficiently so to warrant unhiding and documenting, I suggest wink.gif

Agreed 100%. I pledge 25e for this feature addition. Anyone else?
