Scan for mp3-files not ending with /.mp3/

Hi!

I would like to be able to scan and include audio-files that contain different audio file extensions, but not placed at the end of the filename.

I have a bunch of files that are used for a website and for security reasons I have added a random unique id at the end of the filename after .mp3 extension. Example:

  • .mp3.9b1c93a6864c39e48417ee486b83c387

This meand tha Mp3-Tag won't find the files at the moment.
Is this possible to achieve in some way using scripting or omething?

You can set in
Tools>Options>Tags
which files MP3tag reads. Apparently it is not possible to append the list by ., so you have to find a way to get a decent extention for these files.
You may be forced to rename the files back again.

Edit:
You may do this with a command shell command.
In W7/w8 proceed as follows:
Open Explorer
Navigate to a folder with such files
Shift-Right click on the folder and select the function "Open command shell here" from the context menu
In the command shell enter the following command:
ren .mp3. *.mp3
This may lead to stacked extensions of mp3 but will add the mp3 at the end. You may rename the files afterwards.

I would try this with one folder first. If you are confident, that this leads to the desired results, you may navigate to the topmost folder and use this command:
ren /s .mp3. *.mp3
This treats files in subfolders as well.

Hi!

Thanks for the reply.
I will have a look at that and see what I can do.
