Taming Your Music Collection: Filename To ID3

An Overview Of Taming Your Music Collection: Filename To ID3

What To Do Now
     Next week, we'll look at another method of getting ID3 data that will be even more successful than extracting it from the file structure. In the meantime, try to think of some ways you could enhance your application. One idea would be to familiarize yourself with the Mutagen module more and expand the functionality of the application to include more than just mp3 files. Using Mutagen's File package allows you to modify the tags for several different file formats, including ogg and flac. Take a look at their site at http://code.google.com/p/mutagen/.

     Our application is continuing to improve and so too should our abilities to come up with effective solutions to unique problems programmatically. We were able to distinguish the files that were missing ID3 info, extract said info from the file structure, and save it to the file. We used regular expressions to do the heavy lifting and hopefully learned a thing or two about their usefulness. They're about the best thing since sliced bread. Learn 'em, use 'em, show 'em to your friends. Until next week, take care!
