Music nfo generator
#1
Hi all,

I don't know if something like this already exists, but I thought Id share.

I recently lost my entire music/audiobook collection, to help rebuilt it faster I wrote two python scripts.

One generates nfo for a single album, the other can write nfo's for all albums in a folder.

I am no pro at python and I sure there are better way/easier ways to do it.

They only generates the basics. for use in a skin I am creating.

Note: These are not yet complete nfo files are still missing information such as:
Musicbrainz ID
Labels
Multi Genre
Moods
Style 
Theme
review
image location 

feel free to have a look, improve/change and comment.

My Github Scripts

have a great day.

Are you aware of the Export facility for the Music Library?... Import-export_library/Music (wiki)

v18.2 now exports Play Counts, User Ratings, Scraped Ratings and Votes.

Thanks for sharing, we will certainly have a look.

Hey,

Just out of curiosity, what scenario do you envision where .nfo would be preferred over tags?

I used it for any Album that cant be identified, not even with musicbrainz, MusicBrainz Picard or scrappers. nfo is the fallback.

for instance I have unknown albums and audiobooks and use the script to populate the nfo and update what I can manually. Saves heaps of time.

Plus I live in australia updating tags via the internet is well not always possible.

The only Music Scraper is MediaElch. It should be able to do everything you want to.

Why?
I live in Autralia, curious to know what problem you are experiencing that is Australian specific.

Had a look at the script, very simple but effective.

I still don't see the point though, all albums should scraper in, if they don't why not add them to MusicBrainz and TADB so it benefits everyone?

As of this morning I have been thinking that.

New Version on my git. 
ArtistNMultiAlbumNFO.py
  • Downloads Artwork for Artists N Albums.
  • Gets Album description from theaudiodb and a fallback of Wikipedia
  • Writes the description to the comment Tag.
  • Still only supports mp3 N Flac to add others soon
  • Created so I don't take to use multi packages to Scrap and tag albums #outside Kodi. # Also allows for offline DB built as all file are stored local. There are just some people I know that I don't want connecting to mysql dbs on server. Ever with read access
  • MusicBrainz Picard is all you need to update tags before running script
  • or something like Mp3tag 2.9.5 for unknown albums
  • Future Version will also update Tags
