Copy To Others

Post by Risser » Tue Mar 20, 2007 9:39 am

Alrighty, I've recently had a few instances where I had new MP3s that replaced old MP3s, and I got tired of copying all the info from the old to the new. Thus, I created this cheap-o "copy to others" script to do it for me.

How it works is, you select the track you want as the original, and hit "Copy To Others". The script searches for any track with the same artist and song title (so, yes, you have to do that much yourself, and they must be exactly the same). Then it shows you a window with the differences highlighted so you don't accidentally overwrite something important to you. Then, when you hit OK, it writes 'em.

It doesn't do album art. But for me that's not such a big deal, as you can just open the art on the old one, select Apply to All Tracks on Album and the art will update itself after you've finished your copying.

Um, what else. Oh yeah. One track at a time. I could have probably made it handle multiple tracks, but I'm out of time and it's easier for me to hit "copy to others" 12 times than to work more on the script.

Anyway, it'll do.

it maybe a picky question but does your script ignore the time and the size when it copys the from old to the new.

i have found some songs i redid
from new cdroms had a longer time on them and the size was also larger because of the longer time.

which is why i am wondering this about your script.? :-?

There is no check for old or new. It simply looks at the one you have selected and copies the information to every other song that has the exact same Artist and Title.

So, if you select the old, shorter one and select copy to others, it will copy to the new longer one, plus any others that have the same Artist and Title. So, if you have live versions, or versions from different albums, and they are labeled the same, it will copy to those as well. That's why it shows you what it's about to do before it does it.

Like I said, it's cheap, but it does exactly what I need. 8)

Also, right now it doesn't copy stats, like last played, added or playcount, because I don't particularly care about those things. It could be easily updated to include those though.

okay thanks i just did not want to go willy nilly through the script and do all the songs thinking it was doing fine and later find out that it messed up the newer versions by putting the older versions size and time lenght on the new ones.

so it is nice to know i need to watch that first, before i do all the songs. 8)

Actually, time & length isn't a problem anyway, because it's intrinisic to the file, not part of the tags. I couldn't change that without actually physically changing the length of the file.

Hey Risser, thanks a lot for tackling the tag-transfer problem!
I'll be sure to test-drive your script this weekend.

If I may say, it seems to me that your script does almost the same as Maaspuck's CopyTags". Maybe you two should think about pairing up?

You're approaching the same subject from different angles, with specific advantages and problems, so a mix of both is bound to make an awesome script... just my 2c.

Unless of course both of you prefer the stimulus of fierce competition! :D
