Music Management Help

Postby greenducky on Mon May 12, 2008 7:03 am

Ok everyone, so i have alot of music.

My problem is i have 1 folder. the Folder is in the my music folder. and when you open this folder there are all
of my .mp3 files. (alot of them!!!!!!!!!!!!) The bigger problem is their file names are all pretty screwy. The file names
combine the artist and album and track number all in one name, so when i open amarok that is the name of the file.
this is not a good way of sorting your music when you in amarok.

atleast when i used itunes way back when, it would do the same thing but it gave me the option of renaming and cleaning
up the file, and then it would write that information to the home folder where the music was stored.

I want a way to retag all of my music at the push of a button. I have way to many mp3's to go through and individually
do this. seroiously this would take awhile.

I believe the problem is i use torrents to obtain my music and then i just paste them in my music folder. I before i new it
there was way to much music to go back and fix individually.

SO what do i do. what program. what method. Please advise me with something, i want to
take care of this before i do a clean install of my system.

do you mean mp3rename (search it with apt-get)

Rename mp3 files based on id3tags
Mp3rename is a small tool to rename all those badly named mp3 files.

The generated file name can be based on the id3tags; title, album,
year, track and/or artist.
