Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

Stupid question... where do you put the dll files when you d/l 3rd party plug-ins?

Suggestion @RainDawg... how about making a field for the artist abbreviation (Tom Waits = tw or twaits) so you can use the tags for renaming files automatically into etree format? I'm still trying to figure out how to rename the files after they're tagged. I didn't miss that part did I?

Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

assuming foobar2000 is installed on drive C:

C:\Program Files\foobar2000\components

to rename files after they're tagged, right-click on an individual file and select "show file info (special)". be sure to hit the "update" button before you close the window.

hope this helps

To rename files, right-click on files in the playlist > masstagger > Move, rename, or copy files.

You can save certain filters in there so that you can always rename files based on a certain configuration.

Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

I was just wondering - is it bad manners to download a show in which the person never bothered naming the tracks (i.e. Track 01, Track 02, etc...) and then add tags to each track and then torrent the show elsewhere???

Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

I don't think it's bad manners...I do it all the time. The nice thing is that adding tags does not alter the audio fingerprint (FFP) so you can add tags, reseed, and not alter the checksum. Equally as important is that the next guy can decide he thinks your tagging system sucks, change it to his own way, and the files STILL pass the checksum.

So no, it's not bad practice to edit/add tags and pass on the files. If the audio content remains intact, it's ok.

thanks I misread and responded on how to rename tags after files have already been tagged.

Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

Okay, so I set up the script like Stephen, then I added a couple things of my own in order to try to rename the files in etree format:
(the file is already renamed in this pic, I did it manually, I just used it to show the metatag script)



But when I go to rename the files mine doesn't work like the pre-existing ones do:

pre-existing:



mine:



Does anyone know how to do this correctly and how to make it not have underscores between the fields used?

Re: Tagging an Album List on foobar2000

not sure...

I've been using Oscar's File Renamer
http://www.mediachance.com/free/renamer.htm

there's some more listed here:
http://www.freeware-guide.com/dir/util/rename.html

if there's a way to configure foobar2000 to do it that would be cool... where's RainDawg when we need him?

Well first of all your File naming scheme seems to be broken. Looks like the Format is the same as the Display name - but while the Display name can be arbitraty, the Format string needs to express what you want the file name to be like in Tagz code (Tagz is the name of the formatting language used by foobar)

I'm guessing that the format you actually wanted is "etree style"; for this change the Format to:
Code:
%abbr%%date%t$tracknumber(2)

The underscores are there because your Format contains slashes which are invalid characters for file names in Windows (and pretty much all other operating systems as well). Such invalid characters (like /,\,:,?,*) are converted to underscores when renaming.

Slashes and backslashes are sort of a special case because they are used as folder name delimiters in path names. You can use them in the renaming Format to automagically create subfolders based on tag values if you tick that Create subdirectories... check box in the renaming dialog.

First, put a list of files that you want tagged into the foobar2000 playlist window. Right click on them, select masstagger, and then "edit tags"


Any chance that this could get reposted? The image URL's are no longer valid?

Thanks!
