    Post More software that.......

    OK well i haven't found any playlist software that does what i want and also I am looking for some software that will search the CDDB or AMG or whatever and give each MP3 a standard file name as long as the current file name is a decent match to the database. Anyone know of it? Want to write it? )

    or just realjukebox. (the following is based on having realjukebox)

    if you want all of your files to have a similar format (ie, Artist-Title.mp3) then go to the tools-preferences menu and select the music files tab. Here you can set all kinds of neat things, like put everything by the same artist in one folder, and each album in a sub-folder. This is what I do because it makes it much easier for me to transfer files.

    If you are copying a CD to MP3 format, then you need to be connected to the internet and RJB will download a short list (usually about 3) of albums that are close to the one you have. Pick the right one and it automatically names all the files and puts them in the sub-directories that you chose.

    I use RJB because it doesnt skip like winamp does (on my machine at least). The only downside to RJB is that in "full mode" there are ad banners, but that is easily fixed by using skin mode.

    I downloaded it and it really doesn't do what I want it to do. I would like it to go through and RENAME all of the files in my MP3 collection based on a standard format...you know a lot of people don't bother filling out all the info in the ID3 tag when encoding so I want to take care of that problem along with proper capitalization and spacing, etc...

    But I guess I'll have to write the software when i have time this summer. Ah well.

    I just downlaoded RJB and I really like the fact that it can automatically record a CD to MP3 when I insert it in the drive and that it will get the ID3 info off the internet. Only problem is that is will only encode MP3s up to 96Kbps. I can't find anything on Real's site that explaiuns if this is removed in the full version - does anyone know? Better yet, does anyone know of other (free) software that will automatically rip CDs to MP3 and grab ID3 tags?

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Look for CDDEX or CDEX. It's free and does use CDDB. Small simple and efective. Don't know about the real quality of the encoding, but it supports VBR and 320Kbps... and also it's free. Look for it in www.mp3.com. I use the software that comes with my SB Live!, and then use the MP3 Tag Studio for the after encoding maintenance...

    Yeah that's cool if you still want to pay for your music, but come on guys. I have a collection of over 1200 downloaded songs....most of which I don't know the album titles of so I couldn't even enter all the tag info correctly if i tried. I want something that changes (AUTOMATICALLY) the names of mp3's you have or have had for years.

    I know someone wants to write it!
