Album Length


#1

Is there a way to calculate album length (selected files) to add to a tag? I know there is a function for exporting to calculate it, but can it be done as an action?


Adding album file size and length totals

I think thats not posible.


#3

What is that function then? I'm looking for it quite long...

Grtz,

Henk.


#4

You'll find it in the help under the export options, global placeholders.. %_total_time%


#5

I thougt that isn't giving the right result, but I'll try it again this evening.

Grtz,

Henk.

When I use %_total_time% in my exportfile I only get the time per song. :frowning: But I want to export the total time of an album (cq. the selected songs). Is that possible, or: what am I doing wrong? :unsure:

Thanks,

Henk.

Why don't you paste your mte file? It's hard to solve it without code of your export file.
You are probably using %_total_time% in this loop "$loop(%_filename_ext%)" or similar.
You must place %_total_time% out of the loop.


#8

OK, I'll post my mte-file later... Many thanks for your help so far :slight_smile: !

Here is my mte-file. Please have a look on it to discover what I'm doing wrong concerning the export of the album length.

Thnx,

Henk.

Cant do it for Excel. But I can do it in html?


#11

I need a csv/Excel-export, because I use it to make my covers in Word (with mail merge, which I have automated with a macro).

Do you mean it isn't possible in an Excelfile, or do you mean you aren't familiar with Excelfiles?!


#12

It's hard to make it because of Excelfile. I made something, it only works with one folder (album). Check out.

I'll check it out en I'll post the result!

Tnx so far!


#14

It works fine!

I don't see the point. I tried it with one album, and with multiple albums (Shift-click), but it works fine in both cases! Or do you mean that it won't work if you have multiple albums in one exportfile?


#15

It won't work if you have more then one folderpath in filelist in mp3tag, or if you select tracks for exporting that have more then one folderpath. I hope that you understand what I mean.

I am glad that I made to help you,

I understand what you mean... Once again: many thanks!
