Importing from a text file...


Hi all. I'm quite new to MP3TAG and was wondering if anyone could please help me with this problem:

I've just finished converting a large number of files from FLAC>MP3 and now have the daunting task of tagging them all correctly. I was recommended MP3TAG and so far it's been great. However, I've been struggling to get the "Text File - Tag" option to work the way I would like to.

Basically, I've got a lot of live shows, complete with text files like this:

Arcade Fire Radio 3 Sessions 2004-10-02

Location: Toronto
Venue: Studio 211
Length: 23:58
Source: Radio>Sound Forge 7.0>WAV>FLAC

  1. No Cars Go
  2. Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles)
  3. Naive Melody
  4. In The Back Seat
  5. Haiti
Ideally, I'd like to tell MP3TAG to ignore the first "x" number of lines of the text file, and grab the song title and number from beneath. Is this at all possible? If not I guess I can copy just the tracklisting part to a new text file and use that directly. Thanks in advance for any help :slight_smile:


You have to create a text file with one track information per line.


Ok thanks... this will still be much quicker than doing it manually.

Thanks a lot for the lighting fast reply too.
