For batch processing I use MusicBrainz Picard from http://musicbrainz.org/doc/MusicBrainz_Picard.  It is configurable to update (or not) all the tags, update (or not) the album art in the tag and/or into a file.

For individual processing and tagging, I normally use MP3Tag from http://www.mp3tag.de/en/index.html.  Also does tagging manually or from an external source like amazon, and can also update album art only if you want.

X2 users should get used to using this:-

It's at the heart of generating information for the new Music Jukebox. It needs a script for that...which won't be released until it has been finalised.

Is this the program that will be used to generate the meta-info that the X2s will use to build the music jukebox database?  Will I still be able to use my preferred programs for tagging my mp3s, namely MP3Tag and MusicBrainz Picard and then just use TagScanner for the Jukebox generation?

Correct. You still can edit mp3 tags with the program you like.

Hi Everyone,

TAGScanner is the only option to provide Music file fanart for x2? I understand we need a script and that it will be delivered when development is done. I'm still working through my movie files so have some time. Just wondering when we can expect the script.

Thank you :)

Hi Chris,

The Tagscan script you are talking about is included in the Music Jukebox User Guide.

Suggest to start reading here: http://www.mede8er.com/mede8er_music_jukebox_user_guide.html

The script supplied for TagScanner seems to only create the Tracklist file that I need for building the Jukebox.
I'm looking for a way to automatically download and update all my music folders with a fanart.jpg image like the ones from fanart.tv. Does TagScanner 5.1 support downloading fanart or only cover images?

Until finding Tagscanner, Music Jukebox was stuck on the back burner.    So its not a question of Tagscanner being the only software adapted to  support the Music Jukebox,  the Music Jukebox was  designed around what Tagscanner could do.  

The underlying problem is realtek only support Mp3.  If you have a fully tagged mp3 collection  you  don't need tagscanner.  Scan  will  create the music jukebox direcly from the mp3 tags using the realtek extract mp3 tags SDK function.
