Well it's the same as any program that affects your tags, including MM, there is always a risk. However, I have run this script on over a thousand mp3 files and not had any problems yet, nor do I realistically expect to have any. I think that's just an overly paranoid way of warning that your tags are being modified.

I was trying to avoid having an options sheet and I don't want to add another popup before running really, but I will make this optional in the next version somehow.

Go Old School. Option without an option sheet. You can even set default to Off for the truly paranoid, err, concerned. :)

Haha, if I can't come up with anything inventive than that may well be how I do it! :)

If you are doing that, it would be worthwhile to explicitly exclude .M4A & .M4B (ie. AAC files) from archiving.

I don't have any of those so I didn't realise, I'll add this too.

This script is great, and I admit to already asking for it over in the Duplicate Report thread a while back, but...

I wish any one of the duplicate finder reporter or whatever scripts/extensions would use PUID. :)

Maybe I'll go beg in the ADFF thread as well. ;)

ADFF/CDS handles this just fine right now.
e.g. I store PUID in Custom5 & have my primary preset set to Custom5, Exclude Unknown.

Thanks Owyn, I found your postover in that thread and am almost done with the first step of scanning my library with MusicIP. Hopefully the rest works as easily.

Be prepared for a long wait. The directory scan is fast, but the initial analysis can be time consuming.

You also must make sure that you archive your analysis in MusicIP before proceeding with Trix's script.
In MusicIP:
- Wait for tracks to analyze to go to 0.
- If the process seems to stall, then use Library->Start Analysis to restart the process.
- When all processes are complete then
--Ctrl-A select all tracks in Watch List and
--Right Click, Archive Analysis
- When the archive is complete then File->Exit from MusicIP

You will be in for another relatively long period in this script. On my system, pre-analyzed tracks process at about 25/minute to get PUIDs.

I use an Auto-Playlist to select just the tracks I want PUIDs for, e.g. I don't need or want them for Podcast episodes.

PS: Using MusicIp is not actually necessary unless you also want to use it's Mix function. This script can work independently of MusicIP.

PPS: My personal process has changed. I now tend to do relatively small batches in MM (e.g. for new Rips) and archive analysis in MM. The latest version of the script does this automatically. I then catch up in MusicIp using the analysis from MM.

Hope that's confusing enough. 8)

Unfortunately it seems to lock some parts of the UI whilst the actually analysis is happening, I'm trying to fix this but so far I've found no solution. It's already running in the background so I'm a bit baffled as to why it's even happening.

Re: PUID Generator 2.2 - Updated 29/03/2010

Post by trixmoto » Mon Mar 29, 2010 7:27 am

New version (2.2) is now available to download from my website. Changes include...

- Added flag to control whether analysis is archived
- Fixed AAC files should not have analysis archived

The flag is a variable at the top of the script and by default it is set to "True".

Here are some of the things I still fail to understand;

1. Are PUID by definition a standard? (meaning; when MusicIP, MusicBrainz, GraceNote and others talks about PUIDs, do they all mean the same thing – exactly!?)
2. In the Forum, you mention that I can choose which field to store PUIDs into. How can PUID’ be useful unless various scripts and applications knows where to find them?
3. Can the actual PUID in an MP3 file be visually seen (i.e. using MM)?
4. How can I determine if an MP3 file actually has been analyzed and do have a PUID stored somewhere, or not?
5. Can your script calculate and store the PUID without changing anything else in the ID3 tag?
6. Do the script actually need to have online access to MusicIP while running? (even if I do not wish to retrieve any metadata from an external source into my collection).

I appreciate anyone's reply.

1) Yes, it's a standard.
2) Unfortunately we cannot access the "standard" PUID tag in MM yet, but I've been told this will be available in MM4.x so I'll add this option to the script then.
3) If it's stored in an MM field yes, if it's stored in the "standard" PUID tag then not until MM4.x.
4) You'd need to check the tag - another editor should be able to show you all tags including ones which MM currently can't.
5) Yes, it only changes the tag which can mean just changing your library and not the file, depending on your settings.
6) I don't think internet access is needed as the calculation is done by an application, but I've never tested it myself.

Internet access is not required to analyze the files, however, the analysis may take more time to complete. There are some shortcuts available to Genpuid/mipcore3 which can reduce analysis time if the MusicDNS service is available.

Internet access is required to retrieve a PUID from the MusicDNS servers.
