It should work in MM4 without any problems. It should appear in the Tools > Script menu, but you may need to manually edit the "Scripts.ini" file.

I never used this script but Auto-Tag from Tag-List works fine for me.

Im guessing this doesn't work for MM4 because after install it does not show up in options or Autotag from web options. Is there another area I can look for this scripts functionality?

Im looking to import tags from a list of filenames I copied from Amazon, because when I imported the CD the metadata was not imported, I run into this all the time, and this scripts seems like it can fix that.

Anyone know how to use this?

My "Custom Report" script can create .txt files.

Is it possible to make a sort of txt exporter?

Sorry for the "little" up :D

Thanks for your help trix, sorry to be a pain but where is the wiki? Again appreciate your help, this should be an awesome tool for me in combinataion with your custom excel reports and Automate software to write txt files from the fields almost instantly.

If I can get this to work I'll be able to get my entire collection right very quickly! Great work, keep it up.

You need to use the scripting name for the field, which might be different. Check out the wiki for the full list of fields.

Media Monkey 3.0.3

I just don't unerstand why some of the fields update and some don't. I tried copying your example text and still no joy :(

Very strange, I'm not sure. Which version of MM?

Hi I'm having some trouble, I'm creating the text file but only some of the fields are updating. For example I have a file called "01 - Bounce.mp3" and I have created "01 - Bounce.txt" the same directory. The text file has these lines:

Artist=Justin Timberlake featuring Timbaland, Missy Elliott & Dr. Dre
Genre=R&B/Hip Hop

Now when I run the scipt only Genre and Title update, everything else stays the same. What am I doing wrong? Apart from listening to Justin Timberlake :oops:

This script tries to find textfiles with the same name as the music files. So, if your music file is...

F:\Music\The Beatles\1\Love Me Do.mp3

...then the textfile should be...

F:\Music\The Beatles\1\Love Me Do.txt

So I'm kind of new at this. I've downloaded the script. I can't figure out how to get to the txt file, I believe it should just find it. So I'm not sure where to save the txt file along with the name of the file.

Thanks in advance

Well this script assumes a single text file for each track. I don't know if there is one which takes the filenames out of a single file. Could be written though! :)

Hi Trixmoto,

Did you ever create the script allowing for import of tags from a tab-separated text file? I found on this forum a script that does it right now but it's based on columns and not on filenames, so it will overwrite the tags for the wrong files if you're not careful. Would be much better if the script could read the filename from the first column, match it with the file in the database and then import the tags from the remaining columns. My primary use for this would be to import BPM ratings from MixMeister. The only other issue I can see is that MixMeister exports BPM to the 2nd decimal point (e.g., 122.45) and MediaMonkey will only allow integers to be imported, so currently I have to use Excel to round the results. Anyhow, thanks for all your great scripts, I use quite a few of them!
