Hi,
Further improvements in that area with MM5 are planned for later versions (already in working) as currently main focus is to have it stable, most feature accurate to MM4 and build on that.

I personally miss that for TV series, movies and video files in general where XML and NFO files contain much more information than paths+filenames and also faster than Auto Tag.

Keep monitoring, hopefully "SOON" there will be more info on that.

Auto-tag from filename *or* external file?

by rvonder » Mon Nov 23, 2020 1:18 am

I've seen forum posts going back as much as 10-15 years requesting a way to import tag info from an external text file -- but unless I've missed it, I have yet to see an 'out of the box' add-on for this. One reason is that it would be fairly complex to write an add-on flexible enough to parse the almost-infinite ways an external file might be formatted. But it would certainly be useful when the only alternative is to pull up a page of album/track info from some random website and use it to enter all of the tags manually. There's nothing much more frustrating in 2020 than having to manually retype a lot of data that's already in digital form! (Especially true with Amazon, which used to allow us to auto-tag directly from its album data...)

I bring this up because today I was using MM's nice built-in "auto-tag from filename" capability and got to thinking: That feature is almost exactly what's needed! The hard stuff is already coded and works perfectly, such as the filename parser, the UI needed to specify the exact format of the filename and location of the tag fields within it, and even the viewer to verify the proposed tag values before accepting them. The only new code required would appear to be a way to point the parser at a line from an external file vs. the track's own filename - beyond that, everything else would be the same. To make things easy, we could require that the external file contain the same number of lines as the number of highlighted tracks, and that those lines be in the same order as the tracks. The only UI changes would be a radio button to choose 'data from external file' or 'data from filenames', and a text field to enter the path/filename of the external file.

Think of how powerful this would be: We'd be able to tag an album by copying track info from places like AllMusic.com, Amazon.com, or even the record publisher's own website, and then simply pasting that data into a text file. (In fact, I find that downloaded albums are often accompanied by 'info' or 'cue' text files containing the needed track data.) Using an external file would be quick and easy; avoids manual re-entry of online data; and allows track data from virtually any website (and in any format) to be used for auto-tagging.

I'm putting this in the 'wishlist' forum as a suggestion vs. requesting it as an add-on, because it appears to be a fairly simple extension of an existing feature that would provide a ton of additional tagging capability. Much better than a complex add-on, since the necessary data parser already exists within MM and works perfectly. Thoughts?

Track Tagging from a Text File

by popsmike » Thu Mar 08, 2018 3:19 pm

I was looking for online information today for a new album but the only place which had anything was Amazon, I decided to copy the list to a text document and think about typing it all in a bit later in the day.

I then thought I would look for something to maybe tag the said files and Mp3tag came up with the way of importing from a formated text file.

Anyways I was wondering if this could be added to monkey as this is a recurrence with new albums only just released.

Heres Hoping!!

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

This script very nearly works for me. Unfortunately, no matter if my .txt file includes track numbers or not, my files are always retagged with the titles in alphabetical order, not in the order of the lines of my .txt file.

In other words, what should be tagged as:
File 01 > Title: Casjdkfl;asdf Track #: 1
File 02 > Title: Asdjfkla;sdfa Track #: 2
File 03 > Title: Basjdkfla;sdf Track #: 3

Instead always gets tagged as:
File 01 > Title: Asdjfkla;sdfa Track #: 2
File 02 > Title: Basjdkfla;sdf Track #: 3
File 03 > Title: Casjdkfl;asdf Track #: 1
My .txt file has the Titles and Track #'s in order, and in Mediamonkey, my files are sorted to their appropriate track order.

Help!

For those of you trying to export from Excel as a Unicode Text File. Like others I tried this and kept getting the mismatch of lines. What I ended up doing was modifying the script so that I could view the actual values of the variables. My Txt file when I opened it up in Notepad showed it had 1000 Lines. I had 1000 tracks selected.

This is the code that catches the mismatch:

Code: Select all

 If Tracks.Count <> Int(TagListLines / MaskLines) Then
             SDB.MessageBox "Number of Lines in Tag-List and Track-List doesn't fit!", mtError, Array(mbOK)
Here's what the values showed:
Tracks.Count= 1000
TagListLines= 308 (Should be 1000 according to note pad)
MaskLines= 1

What fixed it was that I opened the TXT file in Notepad++ and selected "Encode in ANSI", then re-saved it as a TXT file. So it seems like the TXT file has to be encoded in the ANSI format, otherwise the line count comes up wrong.

After Encoding TXT file in ANSI:
Tracks.Count= 1000
TagListLines= 1000
MaskLines= 1

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.

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

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

by headgdhead » Fri Jun 28, 2013 11:19 am

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.

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'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!

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?

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

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

Eyal :~)
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!
