another update

there are now different options in the script. you can select these options by writing or deleting the hash/pound character --> # at the beginning of the lines,
the options are:

  1. European or American date type (dd.mm.yyyy or yyyy-mm-dd)
  2. Notes & Tracklist into unsyncedlyrics-tag, comment-tag or both
  3. The URL of the reference page at mixesdb.com into www-tag, mixesdb-url-tag or non

another update (2.5)

The script wasn't working for some time. Now it works again.


  • Only the visual information on mixesdb.com after "Notes & Tracklist" is now writen in the unsyncedlyrics tag. That is a minor change at the start and at the end. The headline "Notes & Tracklist" is now omitted at the start. And at the end the hidden " Retrieved fromh http://mixesdb.com/db/index.php/..." ist now omitted.
    The result of this is that there is written no unsyncedlyrics tag if there is no information at mixesdb.com.

  • The URL of the reference page at mixesdb.com is now writen into the www-tag as default.

I did no extensive testing this time. So if there are any problems with certain pages at mixesdb, let me know!

Thanks for the script. It works good. I added Tracklists to some of my Mixes.
But there are two things I would like to change.
When I've save the tracklist at the top of the list stands a eng||. Is it possible that this eng|| wouldn't be imported?
And the second thing is the date. What must I change in the script to get the date in the title in brackets like this (15.03.2010).

I hope my english is not too bad. I'm not the best in writing in english

"eng||" only indicates that the language of the lyrics is English. It is not imported by the script but generated by mp3tag itself. As far as I know you can't get rid of it.
But don't let that irritate you, it normally does not appear when you watch the lyrics later in an audio player.

replace say " - " in front of the date with say " (" and put say ")" after the line which writes the date.
like this:

# Title (= Show Name & Date)

outputto "title"
sayoutput "album"

outputto "title"
say " ("

outputto "title"
findline "id="firstHeading""

## OPTION: #################################################
## The date is in the European DD.MM.YYYY way as default. If you want
## to keep it in the American YYYY-MM-DD way, put this character: #
## in front of the following two lines.
  RegexpReplace "(\d\d..-..)-(\d\d)" "$2.$1"
  RegexpReplace "(\d\d..)-(\d\d)" "$2.$1"
######################################### end of option ####

findinline ">"
sayuntil " - "
say ")"

I made another update: 2.7
the old version wasn't working anymore.

There has been a little changing in the script at the index page:

In the first line you see now how many mixes are shown. If there are more than 200 mixes by a DJ, only the first 200 are shown. (I can't change that, sorry.) You can't click on that first line, it's just for info. Jst a little gimmick I built in.

In the last line you see now the adress of the artist page you have chosen. I coudn't avoid this due to a few changes at mixesdb.com, but it doesn't harm. On the contrary, you can choose it and click on the preview-in-browser button (down left) to get to the artist page. Can be usefull sometimes.

I've updated the script: Version 3.0

Lot's of improvement! Much better searching & more information into the ID-Tags.
In short:

Update 3.0:

new search: advanced search (dj, dj + year, dj + album), shows up to 1000 matches

new search: advanced search in categories (dj, dj + year, dj + album)

new search: list category + year

new search: direct by URL

new tag: genre: the script is now able to genres, it writes them into multivalue tags.

new tag: publisher URL (if given, mainly with podcasts) is now writen in a extra tag (%wwwpublisher% / Publisher URL). furthermore it is now writen in full length at the start of the tracklist. fefore it was writen in shortend form, which lead to cuts in the middle at long URLs

new tag: cover picture saved into ID-tag or directory if available at mixesdb.com (blocked as default)

new tag: tracklist status into comment (blocked as default)

new tag: mixesdb.com title as extra tag

changed: "live" for live performances is now only writen in the title, and not in the album anymore.

fixed: there were additional free lines between the tracks at many tracklists. ichanged the way the script deals with line breaks in the tracklist section. gives better results for most pages, but some may have been better before.

fixed: script does now recoginze tracklists if the notes & tracklist section is splitted in two sections. the script does NOT write the notes section in this cases. this is mainly to avoid to much text in the ID-tags which leads to unusefull matches in medialibraries when you search for something.

fixed: problem at some sites to recognize the mixesdb URL (www tag)

(see starting post for download)

Update 3.1:

updated: I changed BAND to ALBUMARTIST according to the changes in Mp3Tag v 2.46d. This only affects the way the tags are named inside Mp3Tag. For other media players or any other applications the tags keep the same. See here for more information:
[F] Mp3tag v2.46a - 'Album Artist' Not Correct

fixed: Categories which names started with a genre like "Techno Parade", "Rave On Snow" "Housesession" have been written in the genre tag before.

Update 3.2:

Pseudo titles whick show File Details and Notes form MixesDB
I have thought on different ways to to display Fake- & Repeat Warningns, File Details and Notes form MixesDB in the "Adjust Tag Information" Dialog and finally succeded. The trick I used is to present various pseudo tracks which show the information in the title field. The script shows now the first six tracks with the correct title of the DJ set. The following tracks show File Deatails & Notes in the title field. These information is normally not written anywhere. It's just for you to check if your file version corresponds with the one listed at MixesDB.
If you have a DJ Set which consists of more than six parts, you have to correct the file titles of the last part manually in Mp3tag after using my web sources script.
I managed to leave the TRACK field empty. This is important for me, because I often use the script to tag pretagged podcasts, where I don't want to overwrite the episode number.

The script had an improvised error display made by myself if no results were found at mixesdb.com. Now you see the proper Mp3tag message window for that case.

The genre Drum & Bass was not recognized.

The Cateory List scripts haven't been working for some time due to changes at mixesdb.com. This is fixed now.

Feel free to write comments and suggestions for improvement!

Update 3.3:

quick fix for mixesdb.com search engine changes
advanced search in categories doesn't work anymore.
I included two scripts which have nothing to do with mixesdb.com but with dj-set in general.
They are for soundcloud.com and mixcloud.com. Both have no search function, you need the URL of the soundcloud/mixcloud page as search input. Both try to give you tracklists. Mixcloud from the real tracklist on the page. Soundcloud form the timed comments. So at soundcloud, you will have to do some manual clean up after using the script. Just give them a try.

List Category - DJ and List Category - DJ & Year stopped working.

If you have the time :sunglasses:

Hey dude, are you ever going to support this extension again? I guess you could add the album Cover (from the image), genre (from the tag link field) and date (from DATE SOUNDCLOUD tag).

I could show you an image showing it where exactly, but I suppose you already figured out what I'm talking about.

Are you talking about the soundcloud script?
It had all those things you propose. I don't know if i fix it. Soundcloud changes their page too often.

Hi pone, I've tinkered with the script and have been using it for a while (4months) and it seems stable enough.. (I hope you don't mind?) Here's the script if you want. The SC tags has been fixed. It wasn't picking up them fully. And other modifications that I like. I shalll not be updating this on here as the base code is 90% Pones and I only fixed it for my own uses but seeing that it has been left idle for a while here it is:

MixesDB.com_3.3__Soundcloud.com_Direct_by__WWW_URL.src (18 KB)

I also was trying to get the [indexUrl] method working. I've used:


but it comes up with this:

Maybe you might be able to help me out and trouble shoot it seeing as you have more experience than me :wink:

So far Ive tried:


but all come back with the same error.

Attached TEST script for searching: _MixesDB.com_3.3__Soundcloud.com_Search_by__Album_Artist____Title_TEST.src (1.9 KB)

MixesDB.com_3.3__Soundcloud.com_Direct_by__WWW_URL.src (18 KB)

_MixesDB.com_3.3__Soundcloud.com_Search_by__Album_Artist____Title_TEST.src (1.9 KB)

Hi Pone, sorry for asking again but would you know why this error is happening like I describe above? I just can't put my finger on it.

I don't get it fully.

Have you fixed the soundcloud script into a working script again?
What you have attached above is only the firtst part of a script. Only the head and the [ParserScriptIndex]=... part.

My soundcloud script was exactly the opposite, an incomplete script which is not able to search. There is not [ParserScriptIndex]=... part, you need the soundcloud URL to get it working. So what you have attached isn't based on my script. I looks to me as you are trying to build a search for the script, don't you?

As for the [BasedOn]=... part in the script head. As far as I know it's completely redundant. I have i there only by habit. The lines which matter are [IndexUrl]=... and [AlbumUrl]=...

I don't mind anyone modifying and uploading my scripts. Quite the contrary, I'm happy if the scripts get expanded or if I get help with the script updates.

Well, trying to fix my google images script brought me to understand your question. It seems that https is the problem. But I don't have a sollution so far. HTTPS is a secure internet protocol, whatever that means. Maybe it ist speciffically built to defend scripts like we are building.
I don't know.

I started a discussion about this here:

Hi Pone,

I'm trying to get the SC script up and running again. They have changed something which makes the script I modified fail..

I've tested this and no luck. Maybe it's been so long since I've properly scripted that I'm missing out on something obvious.

[Name]=Soundcloud.com - Direct by URL
# debug "on" "C:\debug album soundcloud.txt"                 # PLACE AFTER HEADINGS TO WANT TO DEBUG (OPTIONAL)
# debug "off" "C:\debug album soundcloud.txt"                 # PLACE AFTER HEADINGS TO WANT TO DEBUG (OPTIONAL)
outputto "ARTIST"
say "artest"

    # outputto "COVERURL"
    # sayregexp "(?<=\"og:image\" content=\").+?\.jpg"

    #eg. "og:image" content="https://i1.sndcdn.com/artworks-000091301382-zqlj2h-t500x500.jpg?

It comes back with error connecting to:

Debug doesn't help either as it doesn't even reach SC.

Maybe you could help me out a bit. Thanks.


Hi Pone,

is it possible to reactivate the mixesdb-scripts (not mixcloud/soundcloud)?
They were very useful to get the tracklists.

Best Regards
