well... this script seems to be a total waste of time... uninstalled. AND, you need to edit the Scripts.ini file to REMOVE the genrefiner lines. Seems a hack to me. :(

(The 0 changes to a 1).

Restart MediaMonkey.


Thanks for the suggestion, I was amazed to see such a recent reply on the thread. Sadly it's still not quite right, for me at least.

Before this change I had the same issue as everyone else, it would say it was successful but nothing would change. Now that I've made the edit as you suggested it updates the Genre but appears to be completely random. I can select one album and it will bring back 12 different genres, one for each track and many of them clearly incorrect.

It's not working for me either. It doesn't seem to do anything at all other than claim that all tracks have been processed.

My version of MM is 4.1.15.1830. I installed the Genre Finder script, ran it and it finds nothing. I even entered a bogus selection and it told me it was good. I don't understand the settings so perhaps that's where the problem is.
Can anyone help?

Thanks
Dave

i really wish someone would update this, i would be happy even if someone made a standalone tool that does this. to be honest there are two reason i use media monkey, automated random filling of my media players, and for genre finder because i can limit it to the standardized winamp enhanced id3 genre list.

How does this script is used? I have just downloaded MediaMonkey version 4.1.14.1813 and downloaded the Genre script and installed it. when I select few tracks and go to TOOLS/Script/Genre Finder, it just process files, nothing hanges and I get a dialog box telling me the files were processed.

How to I get to the dialog box, you are showing where I can choose run modes etc...

Thanks.

Genre Finder is not working for me as described here (script runs and nothing is updated), but I don't know where to find the GenreFinder.vbs file. Could someone please explain.

trixmoto would you be so kind and find some time to update your wonderful script?

Is there any way of disabling the confirmation/information box after Genre Finder runs?

In the Genre Finder Settings I have Confirmation: set to Never but it still brings up an information box after each run stating:

GenreFinder: All xxx track(s) have been processed

I have to click OK each time to clear this window. Pretty annoying if you've been listening to lost of different tracks/playlists and GenreFinder has been scanning and modifying them in the background. Sometimes I have dozens of pop-ups to OK
:evil:

Genre Finder 5.0 not working

I just installed this script and it appears to run ok but it updated nothing at all. (I blanked out the Genre so I would immediately know if it filled in even a single one).
I also tried "Autotag from Web" but that does not appear to be working either.

Looks broken for me. Artist and Track mode give no return at all and Album run mode give weird results. For exemple: A hard day's night (beatles) gave me "Albums I Own" and "Favorite Albums" as top genre.... Also tried the 800 line trick with http adresses as genre tags :-(

I have no idea what I'm doing with this script. I get the basic idea, but I guess I feel like I might have missed something. I added it to MM, and ran it, first on a single track, then on all, but I keep getting the same error message (GenreFinder: All 326 tracks have been processed - no suggested changes.)

Nothing happens when I run the script. I feel like I'm missing something..

Did you all have to restart MM?
care to post an entire new (WORKING) GenreFinder.vbs to the group, to plop into the scripts folder?
