Hi Dano! Hi MP3Tag users!

Now i am new here.
I use MP3Tag since last week. Its a very nice program, and easy to use!!!
While tagged a few mp3 files, i missed a function to automate clicks, because its very usefull if somebody have a large number of mp3-files as me.

So i have written a little script with Autoit, to make the most clicks automatic. For better understand watch the video!

here is a little videosample to view (sorry for bad quality, but it is sufficient to see how the script works)

DESCRIPTION****************
I have tested my automation script only with the dialog "Discogs Web Service Direct Search by Artist and Title". But i think that you can use it with your standard dialog too.

For the people who are interested in the changed dialog, i attached it. Download it and copy the attached src in your sources folder, for Windows Vista it found here C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\data\sources\

I have edited the source to get a smaller result list (filter the genre "Electronic" and only results after the year 1987, beacause thats i mostly search - you can change it as you want!!

The results will be displayed in order of the year (from old to new)

[IndexUrl]=http://www.discogs.com/advanced_search?artist=%s&genre=Electronic&range=after&year1=1987&btn=Search+Releases&sort=year,asc

HOW TO USE****************

  • now start the actual version 2.49 in german or in english language,

  • be shure that the right Discogs Search Source used one time before, so that MP3tag use it standardly when click the Quick-Search Symbol.

-now click on the MP3TagScript.exe

[b]You can STOP the script with "Esc"

thats all, and have fun with it.

DOWNLOAD*******************
I dont know, why i cant attach rar-files in this forum! But here it is on another way :wink:

I will update ever the version in the second post of this thread!


#4

This "batch tagging" with autoit and the scripts various people write is very usefull. Unfortunately i am not a programmer so i don't know what can or cannot be done.
Is there a way to make a script or autoit program that could do the following:
Per folder, or from a selection of songs (whatever is easyer, you can decide on the conditions)
lookup the lyrics (for example the leoslyrics script) and import them per song. i don't know if it is possible that it catches only those where it is sure of the lyrics, and skip/disregard those where it doesn't find lyrics or where the window with the list of possibility's you manually choose from pops up.


#5

Im having problems building this with autoit, I keep getting an error on line 27 "Error: Variable used without being declared".


#6

I've added another button and also a download for the compiled file.


#7

Wow dano you really got some skills. Thanks again


#8

#9

#10

and updated again - show at the second post of this thread!


#11

Does your script what dano's script did or have you modified it?

I don't understand what you are talking about the modified src file in your post (post 2)? There is no src in your rar and your exe works with every src, right?


#12

Sorry - i attached it seperatly again :wink: The difference to the original one is that the search result sort by year of publishing.

But you can also try to run with your script :wink:


#13

So. I have re-edited my post for better overview - i hope so :wink:
