Get tags from folder name?


#1

Is there a way to get tags from the folder name containing the mp3s? As example of this folder name:

Album Name [Recording Label] (Album Year)

This would save me a lot of work and time if there is a way to do it.

Thanks

It is possible. Filename -> Tag.

put your directory mask here</b>filename mask or %DUMMY% here

So, something like-

%Album% [%Publisher%] (%Year%)\%Track% - %Title%

or... whatever. :slight_smile:

thanks, i've been tying to do the same thing - here is what i ended up with:
%artist%\%Album%\%dummy%

this gets the album tag from the folder name, and the artist tag from the name of the next folder up in the directory.

Hi, I've aslso been trying to do this and am still running into a wall. My Folder naming format is:

ARTIST - ALBUM

my file naming format is:

ARTIST - TRACK - TITLE

All hyphens have a space before and after.
I'd like to get the album title from the folder, the artist from either, and the rest from the file. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Troy
