Scrape music using folder names - kaotik123 - 2013-05-23

Is it possible to scrape all the album fanart by reading the folder names themselves and not the ID3 tags?
All my music library has perfectly named folders (artist - album - year) but the ID3 tags of the mp3s are all over the shop and more than half of them doesnt show any album covers/ fanart etc...
Is there a setting to change this?

Probably a better idea to get you ID3 tags straightened out using an ID3 tag utility, since almost all media players use ID3 tags to display metadata. Some of the better ID3 utilities will work by using the file path to generate ID3's.

Such as mp3Tag.
