REMARK: See also my multipage CD/DVD cover in another thread which is in RTF format. RTF has the big advantage that the users can easily edit/modify/decorate the results before printing.
This is an export configuration for software Mp3tag v2.37a.
It was based on the ideas of two earlier configurations:
"html_vitamin_cd.mte" and "html_squonk.mte", that were
found in the "official list of export configurations".
This export configuration aims at producing simple CD
front covers for MP3 CDs. Such CDs usually contain several albums.
The size is 12 x 12 cm so the user can cut out the covers and
put them into the CD case. In this way composer, artist and title
info as well as the totals of the track numbers, playing times
sizes will be readable for each album on the CD.
Special care was taken to display long tag texts, if any, in
a compact, but easily readable form.
Such a small scrip of paper may be handy for MP3-players, too.
"html_AlbumListCover.mte" produces a summary listing of information on the mp3 files in the given folder and its subfolders. If there are subfolders starting from the current folders, they are also processed and the total playing time, size and track number data of all mp3 files in the given directory structure are listed in the last row of the output table.
The arrangement allows the displaying of long ID3 infos, too, as the
following example (MP3 albums from emusic.com) shows.
Example (See the attached snapshot for a nicer view):
Album Tracks Time Size
Högman / Bergman / I Quattro Temperament : 15 01:09:29 92.67 MB
"HANDEL: 9 German Arias HWV 202-210 /
Trio Sonata in C minor HWV 386a" (1989)
Marion Verbruggen / Ton Koopman / Jaap ter Linden : 27 00:57:43 73.75 MB
"Handel: The Complete Sonatas for Recorder" (1995)
Total of folder "HANDEL": 163 08:42:07 700.92 MB
If you prefer to list your own folder names instead of the
sometimes silly album title infos from the id3 tags,
please use the similar "html_FolderListCover.mte"
TESTING: The output produced by "Mp3tag v2.37a" with this export
configuration was tested with internet browsers Opera (v. 9.10)
and Internet Explorer (v.7.0).
