Awesome Awesome tagger ya got here…
Only thing I don’t like is the freedb support - I’m not a big fan of the freedb because of the multiple instances of every album etc. - can get somewhat messy.
I am a stickler for tagging my music the correct way and producing filenames that match and your program does this beautifully.
I liked Tag&Rename for only one reason and that wasfor the AMG support it had, when that went out the door because of the TOS I started looking and came across your nice little proggy.
Clean - No BS - That’s what I like.
I was wandering around looking at the AMG site to match and make sure a set of freedb tags was correct - which is terribly painful because the AMG site sux, when it occured to me…
Have you thought about using http://ubl.artistdirect.com as a source for the tagging? TOS seems to be OK, might need to read it closer, but might be worth making a parser so that it can grab info from it.
Could be better than the freedb - dunno how many entries it actually has, but it seems to be a fairly complete listing.
Give me some feedback on what you might think about this and whether it might be possible to try it.
I am glad that you haven’t gone the route of Amazon or some such… but this could be a valid alternative if at all possible.
I do know that The Godfather has actually used a script to go ahead and use the AMG site but thier program is such a clusterbeep that I am not even interested.
I have actually passed your program on to some other peeps and we all agree it is awesome.
With the addition of a better tagging source and… well my one wee thing is…
I sure would like to have the album art in my file… I know I know I have read the forums, but I like that because I like having it load when I am listening to my music.
Other than that - perfect - easy to use - no extra dumb crap and a clean interface.
MP3Tag doesnt do everything some of the other programs, but it does the things it does beautifully… the things I want it to do.
Keep up the excellent work
