Adding "totaltracks" tag en mass?


#1
  1. I have a large number of FLAC files I would like to add a TOTALTRACKS tag to. How can I do this en mass? Let's say I have an album with 8 tracks, I would like the totaltracks tag to be "08", or "10" for example.

  2. If I converted said FLAC files(after updating the totaltracks tag) to MP3 files with ID3v2.3 tags, what new tag will the totaltracks become?


Add Total Tracks and Total Discs to all songs in different folders

The only way to get the total number of tracks is by using the numbering assistant.
if you store the total number of tracks in the tag %track% e.g. 2/10 you could then format a tag totaltracks with the substring behind the slash.
There is no direct way to fill the field totaltracks.

So how would I do that?

Use Mp3tag.

Elaborated ...

Action #1

Field ______: TOTALTRACKS
Formatstring: %_total_files%

End Action Group Format TRACK#Set TOTALTRACKS (1 Action)

Save all changes.

How to apply the action group?
Select the group of tracks, which should receive the tag-field TOTALTRACKS with the same value.
Apply the newly created Action Group right away from the dialog 'Action Group' or invoke the new user defined action via the main menu, dialog 'Mp3tag/Actions' from the submenu 'Format TRACK/Set TOTALTRACKS'.
