foobar2000: right-click > masstagger > edit tags > guess values from filename

Fb has a freedb tagger too, but it only works well with complete albums.

same with id3taggit. I usually end up using freedb.org in a web browser and using id3tagit to enter data manually.

just tried those programs
id3tagit SEEMS like it would work but it doesnt
in the query freedb, i can manually type in the artist/title and itll show a few albums for it
and it looks like you can get album info from the files if you have a whole album but i only have favorites
now if only those two options would merge...

foobar2000 was kinda the same thing (but i didnt check the freedb option (if there was one))
it can get info from the filename like most tag programs BUT my files only have the "[Artist] Title (Remix)"
i was already able to use another program to change that to artist/title/comment tags

and musicbrainz, soo close to what i wanted
only problem was that i was only able to get the album
no year, no genre

i know theres alot of programs out there that can get a whole lot of info for movies from just the title or imdb
there has to be a great program that can get all this info from just the artist/title, right?

always, thanks for the help though^^
if anybody has anymore programs that might be able to get info from just the artist/title
please tell me^^

id3tagit doesn't support ogg. It's great, but it doesn't support ogg. That's a pain. I wish it would support ogg.
