Hello everyone, I was wondering if there's a way update all ID3 tags of my music files automatically using freedb.com database. I was trying to do this and couldn't understand why it doesn't work, couldn't find any help through the help files either.
I know Winamp can do the same with a very accurate results, but it cannot do that on a massive scale.
what kinds of hints does mp3tag have to find any information in the database?
Have you filled some tags already? Do you still have some CDs? (e.g. CDex relies on freedb). Or do you only have a bouquet of untagged data files that happen to be in the mp3 format?
"Filename -> Tag" option is not good enough because I want to get accurate file info from the internet.
I mentioned the problem of Winamp and Media Payer above, indeed, it gets exactly what I want, but the problem is that it's pretty clumsy retrieving info for every file one by one.. I want a tool that can retrieve that info for bunch of files and I'll just fix what needed to be fixed..
Nice application, it does pretty good job, but I wonder, why does it get different results than Winamp?
For example, I was searching the song "Blur - The Universal", MusicBrainz tagged the file as part of an album called "Now That's What I Call Music! 33 (disc 1)" (Some sort of compilation CD), while Winamp tagged it as an original file from the artist's album called "Best Of Blur" by "Blur"... Obviously Winamp's result is the one I prefer..
Why can't MP3TAG do the same as both of those applications?
