Re: Import tag info (track titles) from .txt files?

Post by joshb » Fri Dec 30, 2011 3:57 pm

Please, how can this script be bound to a shortcut key, and/or added to the right-click context menu? I need to use this script on many, many folders of untagged .flacs!
This was asked by several earlier posters. I have tried a few things in the scripts.ini file, but I don't know scripting and I'm just fumbling around, and I get VBS runtime error 13 when I try to run it via the shortcut key.

Also, IMHO this script needs to be more visible. I've been looking for this functionality for YEARS and only found it yesterday, after hours of searching the forum. Can a final (with keyboard shortcuts) version be posted in a more prominent place?

thanks, Josh

Is there anywhere where this complete updated script is available?

Import Tags From Text File [MM3+]

Post by Eyal » Fri Jun 08, 2012 3:25 am

This is a complete working version of the script I have on my computer.

- Copy the code below to a TEXT file named ImportTagsFromText.vbs (or get the file from here)
- Save that file in Mediamonkey\Scripts\Auto folder.
- Restart MediaMonkey.

-> Select the tracks to tag, Run the script through Tools|Auto-Tag from Tag-List menu.

Code: Select all

Thanks for the awesome script, I use this all the time. I wanted it to support Unicode so I added a "-1" to lines 45 and 136. They should now read:

Code: Select all

Set File = FileSys.OpenTextFile(EditPath.Text, 1, False, -1)
Additionally, in order to prevent the script from continuing, it's necessary to add

Code: Select all

   Else
     Exit Sub
...between lines 51 & 52 so the result is:

Code: Select all

      Set File = Nothing
   Else
     Exit Sub
   End If

I presume - you don't have to 'wrap' the numbered song name in a <Title>

e.g.
1. songname A
2. songname B
...

is
fine
it DOESN'T have to be <Title>1. songname A</Title>

I've tried both anyway.. no joy

I saved the latest vbs code and the above edits (last 2 posts) - I'm still getting the error
'Number of Lines in Tag-List and Track-List doesn't fit'

Can anyone confirm this working in latest Media Monkey 4.0.7.1511
I'm going try on an older Windows machine

To be honest I don't know why this is not a FEATURE - you should be able to paste from the web or into a dialouge box - the suggestion of a context menu for scripts extra would also be useful but want to getting it working first - I have Mozart x 40CD to tag !

Anyway - fair play to the original vbs writer

I'm using MM 4.0.7.1511 and am trying to use this script but I'm not seeing the menu item under tools or tools --> scripts. I've tried saving the .vbs file with both notepad and with wordpad but neither seem to work. I've also tried removing the -1 from this line:

TagListLines = Count(TagListContent, Chr(13)) - 1

The version seems to be a couple years old so I'm wondering if it just won't work with the version of MM I have. Is anyone able to use it with ver 4.0.7.1511?

Thanks!

In MM4 scripts are saved to the user folder. So it might be one of these folders:

I moved the .vbs file to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto but I'm still not seeing anything in the Tools --> Scripts menu. I know that this script doesn't need an entry in scripts.ini but just to test things, I tried putting an entry in the scripts.ini anyway. There are two scripts.ini files on my computer, one is in the C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts that was installed with Media Monkey. The other is in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto and was installed with another script that seems to work ok (DiscogsAutoTagWeb.vbs). I added the ImportTagsFromText section after the DiscogsAutoTagWeb section.

Code: Select all

[ImportTagsFromText]
FileName=ImportTagsFromText.vbs
ProcName=TagFromTagList
Order=20
DisplayName=Import Tags From Text...
Description=Tags based on input from a text file
Language=VBScript
ScriptType=0
So at this point, I can start MM 4 and I do see a menu item with the scripts.ini section added. :)
The problem from here is that I get an error when I try to start the script by clicking on it from the menu. :(
This is the error I'm getting:

Code: Select all

Error #450 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment "TagFromTagList"
File: "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\ImportTagsFromText.vbs", Line: 1, Column: 0
I've since removed the extra section in scripts.ini and moved the script back to the Auto folder but unfortunately I'm still not able to see the script from the menu. I'm a systems type and not a developer so it wouldn't surprise me if its just something simple. Could there be something I'm missing?

I've determined that the problem may reside in the menuitem options or something related. With my limited programing knowledge, that may not be correct but what I did find was that adding a shortcut option allows me to run the script without incident. My .mov files were re-tagged properly from my input file. The shortcut option was the only change I made. I'm still not seeing the menu item though. It would be nice to have it around so that I'm not relying on my memory to recall that I set CTRL-1 to run the script so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Could MM 4 handle the menuitems differently than MM3?

Here's the top portion of the script with my change...

Code: Select all

Option Explicit

Sub OnStartUp
      Dim MenuItem
      Set MenuItem = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_Tools, 1, -3)
         MenuItem.Caption = "Auto-Tag from Tag-List..."
         MenuItem.IconIndex = 26
         MenuItem.UseScript = Script.ScriptPath
         MenuItem.OnClickFunc = "TagFromTagList"
         MenuItem.Shortcut = "Ctrl+1"
      Set MenuItem = Nothing
End Sub
Thanks!

That's really strange that it doesn't appear in the menu. Adding the shortcut to this menu item means it's must be there and working. Otherwise the shortcut won't work. Are you sure you're looking in the TOOLS menu?

MM3 and MM4 handle the menus the same way.

Re: Import tag info (track titles) from .txt files?

I use a utility called Renamer to change the file names to the actual song titles on my Live recordings.

Example:
paf2013-06-09d1t03.flac to 03 Sunshine of Your Love

Then I run the MM 'Add/Rescan files to library' utility where it now creates a tag with the song title.

I also use a standard naming convention on the directory names 'Phil Lesh and Friends - 2013-06-09 Mountain Jam, Hunter Mtn Ski Area, NY' to create the Artist, Album and Year tags at the same time.

I manual tag the Genre, Art Work & Comments. Any ideas on how to get these to automatically generate through Add/Rescan would be a time saver.

I forgot to mention that I use the MM 'Auto tag from filename' utility to create the tags.

Scanning can tag from Filename when Infer File Properties is enabled under Tools > Options > Library. The auto-guess masks Infer File Properties uses are listed in the ini file. You could modify this and I'd assume it would do the trick.
