Shall I start loading up the issues on github?
Glad you posted this, I was wondering whether to have a bash at a new extendible AWXi but I have no experience so this may be ideal.

Hardest part was getting started with a nice clean framework. If you feel like getting involved in the code, I used this tutorial to get started which jammed a years worth of experience into a couple of hours of nice videos and code samples, can't recommend it enough (highly worth the $25). I also "borrowed" a lot from the plex web ui for inspiration, I especially loved their filtering.

In the new version I have even tapped into youtube api to find music videos from the context menu on a song. There are heaps of apps out there which will update your id3 tags from filename and folder patterns, well worth the time https://www.google.com/search?q=filename%20to%20id3
