Absolutely! The key, I've finally discovered, is to do all said "constant fiddling" with MediaMonkey. We MUST trust the MONKEY! The monkey knows all.

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

Just curious, though: What is it about MM's metadata editor vs. another program (AudioShell)? They're performing the same function, right? Probably when you made a tag change with Audioshell MM did not pick up the tag changes because you did not rescan the tracks after the change was made (or have ...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

The auto-organize is based on the metadata in the tracks/database, so you should modify the "Album" field rather than the folder itself. I see. Such as with an ID3 tag editor? With Mediamonkey... Yeah, I spent two days downloading the streams with MediaMonkey and editing the metadata with another p...

The problem I'm foreseeing is that the auto-organizing takes place "on the fly," and the files become merged and messed up ...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

Okay, guys. We're almost there... I'm running into an issue specific to my current task, so this isn't exactly a wish, per se. There are a lot of options and I've been playing around with them in order to resolve things, but here's the problem I have now: When I download a set of tracks from an M3U ...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

Now, so that my epic ranting post isn't totally in vain, how about an option such as "Download files from stream link" which will do the downloading automatically once I enter the URL! I know, I know...I'm getting greedy. Just saying, though! :) I think it's a nice idea. Yeah, me too! :) You can se...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

yep YOU, sir (or ma'am) are AWESOME! I can now download the files, and they're automatically downloaded into the destination of my choice and renamed based upon their ID3 tags. Now, all I have to do is open the M3U link in MediaMonkey, select all the files, right-click and Send To (Copy). Now, so t...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

As MediaMonkey can download and automatically organize it would seem possible. The post is too long to re-read, but it seems Auto-Organize (Gold feature) should rename the files once they're downloaded based on their tags. So, you're saying that MediaMonkey already does this? But only in the premiu...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

The very problem is that they have to be downloaded first and that breaks the process of MM knowing how to do it all as one step or process. The new feature would be the ability to detect the need to download/read the tag info first as part of a single/on-the-fly process. I have to say I respect yo...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

I know what you want, I'm just explaining why it doesn't work right now. No, it doesn't work right now. That's true. :roll: I have a hope that it could work. I have a desire to see that it works. That's why I'm posting this in the "Wishlist" section of the forum. That's what a "wish" is. I wish for...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

That will be the answer as the M3U contains not tag information. So unless the file is downloaded MediaMonkey won't know its tags as the M3U fails to provide them. Yes, I am aware that the M3U contains no tag information. The files themselves contain the tag information. They must be downloaded fir...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

I've already explained it all. Unless you provide the M3U stream URL here or to support, you'll have the problem that the tags are empty and thus any tag based organizing will not work. With the M3U stream URL the developers will be able to see if this is something that can be improved on. And also...

Re: Auto-labeling downloaded M3U streams with ID3 tags

MediaMonkey can't convert online files, you need to download them first. ...Right. That's what I've been saying. That's kind of the entire point of my post. I apologize if I haven't made my awareness of the fact that I need to download the files first more apparent over the course of the past fourt...

Ability to decode M3U tracks to MP3

Hi! Yeah, so if I open a URL in MM to an M3U stream online, I get a list of the tracks in the Now Playing window. I can move the files to a folder and MM will download the MP3 files. I can then drag them back into the Now Playing window and have MM rename them based upon their ID3 tags using the Aut...
