Thanks serendip1959
very helpful spreadsheet! i edited the sFilePath to point to my specific location I needed. I also replaced all genres in the whitelist to be formatted as shown below. Therefore, all genres will sort by major genre first, then sub-genre, such as:
hard%rock=Rock Hard
Soft%Rock=Rock Soft
will equal Rock Hard and Rock Soft and so on...

i also noticed that, if i have duplicate genres in my list of 706 whitelist genres, the duplicates change to a red font, nice touch.

this is the genre whitelist i use in case anyone would like to use:

Post by serendip1959 » Sat Aug 02, 2014 4:58 am

I find Genre Finder very useful, but the crowd sourced Last FM tags a pain as they often contain personal and irrelevant tags that need to be filtered using Genre Finder Update Lists. To make it easy to create, edit and update lists of genres to allow, block and keep, as well as alias I created an Excel spreadsheet to do the hard work and write files to link to from the Genre Finder Update Lists settings. I thought others might find it useful so have made it available for download from http://cranachan.co.uk/?p=39 Instructions in the post and spreadsheet. The master list of genres is the one from http://www.musicgenreslist.com/

Use at your own risk, I can't be responsible if you mess up your genres using it.

Thanks, I'm glad you've found the script useful. I've added your suggestion to my list, I'll have a think about how I can make it easier to handle different lists for different types.

This is a really great time saver and I say thank you for the enormous amount of time you have spent on keeping this updated and working really well. I has saved me hours of editing :D

I was wondering withe so many genres these days if it would be possible to add a couple more white lists and link them to specific types?

Ie a White list linked to Music another specifically for Video / Movies /TV and one for Audiobooks?

With there being over 500 in music now and Movies have a couple of hundred not to meantion Podcasts and Audiobooks it would be easier to keep them up to date in separate lists.

Not so interested in actually searching for say Movie genres at Rotten Tomatoes but to try and keep everything in some easy order as my white list looks like a real mess since I have added a number of audiobooks and movies......

Thoughts????

This might be usefull for people stumbling upon this post.

I created a huge whitelist from the wikipedia genre lists
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_music_styles
It's not perfect but it's the best I could create.

Here is a download for the txt file: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=08822996874728695065

When adding this to your genrefinder lists it's best to refer to the actual file. Example: @C:\Users\You\Music\genres.txt
Or just copy and paste the content from my genres.txt to the list but that will take a few minutes or mediamonkey just crashes.

Thank you Trix...and I caught the subtle hint. :-?

The reason I came here first was the hope that someone might have experienced the problem in the specific context of MM and indeed it was an MM thread that provided the answer. The irony is that a MM search showed up nothing when I tried, and that the link to a MM thread appeared on the lmgtfy result.

Oh well. Anyway, problem solved, so thank you

I have just installed Mediamonkey 4.1.1.1703.

I also download Genre Finder 5.0 from http://trixmoto.net/mm/search.php?all=scripts.

When I try to install the extension (Tools/Extensions), I get a notification: "A script engine for the specified language can not be created."

Despite this, when I look at Tools/Extensions, Genre Finder appears to be installed, but I can't see it if I go to Tools/Scripts...meaning that I cannot find a way to run it. Further, if I try to uninstall Genre Finder at Tools/Extensions, I get the same notification. I can't uninstall it.

My only recourse seems to be uninstall Media Monkey and to start over again.


I am not a techie and I don't really know any about writing scripts. Obviously I am doing something wrong or there is something wrong with my Windows 7 laptop.

I would welcome any help or suggestions, please?

You need to use the whitelist or blacklist to filter which Genre's can be used.

Post by Guest » Tue Mar 11, 2014 8:20 am

The script updated my genre list from 128 to over 700 genres...of which many were clearly incorrect.
The album name or other useless information was populated and now I have to spend many hours to removed genres such as:

Catchy
Catchy as Hell
One out of ten
two out of ten
three out of ten....etc
Chilled Out
Claaaaap your hands....

Either I did this wrong or possibly the source genre listings at the web site are not current.

I suggest testing a subset of your songs first to determine if it works correctly.

Problem is you can also use this script on other fields like "Mood" and "Occasion", and a lot of the blacklisted items you listed might very well fall into these other categories.

Good points.
I was liking the whitelist idea because, theoretically, we could leverage some kind of genre list standards -- maybe from Last.fm or discog -- and then let er rip.

I tend to use GF as a way of rapidly cleaning up all the genre-less items in my lists. That can be many and I only want to update it fast so that I can then use XBMC to play auto-playlists based on genre, and don't want to miss good songs.
Perhaps a bit peculiar of a need, but I guess that genre / playlist playing would be a frequent use case in MM as well.

That's why I said a small list, because genre is subjective, but some of the tags that pop up just aren't related to genre at all, they're more related to one person's interaction with the music, or personal taste, and they would not apply to anyone else at all. True that some would prefer a whitelist rather than a blacklist, though. (I ended up kinda leaning that way myself but I had put so much work into the blacklist at that point!) but the whitelist would end up being even more subjective than a blacklist.

Anyway, I personally didn't want years (20s, 30s etc.) or country of origin, but some people might, so nevermind those, but these are from the blacklist I created, and I don't think the following would be subjective (at least in terms of 'is this a genre?') at all:

Seen Live
Cool
Awesome (and some variations like 'Totally Awesome' and 'Simply Awesome')
Best Band Ever
Favorite (and Favourite, Favourites, Favourite Band, etc.)
Genius
<3
Beautiful
Mistagged
Insightful
Epic
Feel Good Music
Amazing (and several variations like, I dunno if swearing is allowed on the forums, but F---ing Amazing and F---ing-Amazing)
Quirky
Under 2000 Listeners
Home Collection
Calm
Simphony (a shockingly common misspelling)
Complete Score
Love It
Sad
Sexy
Fun
Other
CDs I Own (or Albums I Own)

a little iffy:
Brutal (iffy since 'Brutal Death Metal' could be considered a genre, for instance, but...)
Vocalist(s)
Singer(s)

Do with that what you will, at the very least it may help some people putting together their own blacklist.

oh... are wildcards possible? like "Favo*" would get both Favorite and Favourite? never thought to check that.
