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.

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.

Genre Finder

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

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.

Close MediaMonkey.

Open this file in notepad:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\GenreFinder.vbs

Find this line:
str = FixGenre(ele.ChildNodes.Item(0).Text)

Change it to this:
str = FixGenre(ele.ChildNodes.Item(1).Text)

(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.

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. :(

Making this change will work for track and artist mode but not for album mode. To get all three modes working you should replace row 800 with the following:

If left(FixGenre(ele.ChildNodes.Item(1).Text),24) = "Https://www.last.fm/tag/" Then
str = FixGenre(ele.ChildNodes.Item(0).Text)
Else
str = FixGenre(ele.ChildNodes.Item(1).Text)
End If

I'm sure there's a more elegant solution but this works for me.

Minimum match is also not working - you need to edit line 820 (assuming you've made my edit) to say the following:

cnt = FixCount(ele.ChildNodes.Item(0).Text)
