Nightingale Forums - Mass Edit Keywords & Other "Special" metadata

Nightingale Forums

Full Version: Mass Edit Keywords & Other "Special" metadata
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
While you can mass edit (by selecting several files) the regular Metadata of files, it would be nice to also be able to mass edit the Nightingale-specific Metadata as well.

For instance, Keywords allow you to organize the media by such user-defined categories as "Mellow", "Upbeat", etc. and then use those keywords to generate Smart Playlists based on those keywords.

However, if you already have an extensive library of tunes, you currently have to edit the Keywords in a file-by-file manner.

With an extensive library, this could take weeks or even months.

By providing an additional tab in the "View Metadata" dialog, you could allow your users to mass edit the Nightingale-specific metadata more efficiently.

Thanks

Completely agree here, great suggestion. We'll track that as #255, let's hope someone picks it up.
set the preference :

songbird.trackeditor.enableAdvancedTab

to true - you will get another tab in the metadata editor dialog which gives access to many additional media item properties, including keywords.

Not sure if you can use it for multi-item edits though.

It seems like this is capable of multi-item editing, however some parts of it are not really end-user friendly. Seems like a good starting point, though; I added that to the github issue.
