First I want to say I really enjoy mp3tag. It's a superb application and I keep finding uses for it.
Lately I wanted to start using the export function as I have tons BUT really TONS of albums to organize and create the playlist for them. Most of my albums are already organized but the tags need cleaning.
Here's my mte script and an example of what it does
$filename(C:\Documents and Settings\polobunny\Desktop\\%artist% - %album% (%year%).m3u)#EXTM3U $loop(%track%)$loop(%_filename_ext%)#EXTINF:%_length_seconds%,%artist% - %title% %_filename_ext% $loopend()$loopend()
#EXTM3U #EXTINF:239,Alicia Keys - No One Alicia Keys - No One.mp3 #EXTINF:252,Chris Brown Ft. T-Pain - Kiss Kiss Chris Brown Ft. T-Pain - Kiss Kiss.mp3 #EXTINF:208,Kanye West Ft. T-Pain - Good Life Kanye West Ft. T-Pain - Good Life.mp3
The first line creates a m3u file with Artist - Album (Year) as the filename on my desktop. All is fine from there.
Second line creats the necessary playlist information to be "conventional" to my needs
The third line creates the location of the files according to the location of the playlist, that's where I need help
My music is organized in 4 subfolders, "0 - E", "F - K", "L - R" and "S - Z". My m3u playlists are in the same folder as those 4 folders.
This is what I would like my playlists to look like
#EXTM3U #EXTINF:239,Alicia Keys - No One 0 - E\Alicia Keys - No One.mp3 #EXTINF:252,Chris Brown Ft. T-Pain - Kiss Kiss 0 - E\Chris Brown Ft. T-Pain - Kiss Kiss.mp3 #EXTINF:208,Kanye West Ft. T-Pain - Good Life F - K\Kanye West Ft. T-Pain - Good Life.mp3
So I would like my mte script to automatically detect the first letter of the filename of each file and append the proper folder before it. I've been thinking about this all night and can't frankly sort it out. This would greatly help me as I have several thousands of files to organize.
Thank you for your time
