    It tells me "A Java Exception Has Occurred" and it won't do anything

    I have played something like 800 different Britney Spears tracks. How can I mass tag them as 'britney' using this?

    It should be enough to go to the Oracle Java site and download and install the latest version. @headey: The metadata meant are the ID3 tags used for artist and track (and album) that your media player shows for local MP3 tracks on your HD and Last.fm uses for identifying a track in its database. So that File DropBox for quick tagging looks up the ID3 metadata for each track dragged & dropped into it from your local library list or "table" (e.g. from Windows Explorer) and tags all files with the new tags that you have chosen for them.

    Hi friends. Trying to set the tagger up again on a new W8 OS. How do I know which 'Java Virtual Machine' to install? This Wikipedia site lists many????

    I don't understand the "File DropBox for tagging music on hd" ~~~~~ & it says "Please ensure the files have correctly metadata..." What is this? -can anyone show an example of the format required? ~~~~~~~~~ "...drag directly onto the table" -I don't see a table. Is it broke or do I need to do something? (windows XP )

    @gimmejazz I've rather lost the will to bother looking these days. Is it a CBS plot or honest lack of resources I wonder? ~~~~~~~ Plus, I'm spending more time listening to unheard tracks from existing artists & not going back so much so I'm not actually sure what I attempted last.

    @silverlage > www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp > decode the data (from dGFn...) = tag:"tripfunk" or tag:"dubfunktronica true" or tag:"dubfunk true" or tag:"trip step" or tag:"funk step" or tag:"cornrow breaks" or tag:"trip-house" or tag:"tripfunk" or tag:"scatter funk" or tag:"dubtekstep" or tag:"Dubfunktronica" or tag:"Dubfunktronica" opt:discovery|true opt:mainstr|0 ~~~~~~ does that look possible?

    Listen to Feisty dub and explain how I created it using combo.fm and mass tagger. I did it but cant replicate, So confused and excited about this station. Not even sure how to replicate it????? Feisty Dub

    New question. There is something that makes me click on 'Add New User' instead of just clicking on the field to Change User! Is there any way of editing the duplicate names out of the dropdown menu?

    January 2013
  • headey

    The 'User Tag Library' isn't working quite as I'd expected. First attempt I couldn't get the 'Tag from Searches' tab gets populated with anything ~~~ Second attempt, (closed & reopened MassTagger) -searched for tag 'gimme' but it didn't give many results ; then 'gimme sum' -not all the tags expected, but as an example 'gimme sum horn' says 597 results. Right clicking > Show globalised tracks = about 50 tracks ~~~~~~~~~~~ The only way to maximmise the the number of tracks seems to be to type in a user known to have the tag, then double clicking the tag(or RC & select)

    @gimmejazz: Please have a look at the upper screenshot of the Mass Tagger, the tracks with blue background are the highlighted ones, the other ones are not highlighted and would not be tagged after clicking on the "Tag" button. @ RomanJG: It seems that the user login is not saved on Windows 7, so you have to repeat the login procedure everytime you start it. At least I have to do this on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 with Java Build 1.7.0_09-b05, on Windows XP it works fine. Maybe it is possible to start LastFMmassTagger.jar with admin rights or something similar, so my username would be saved somewhere.

    @gj -I'm following hj's instructions & it seems to be working ok. I don't understand your descriptions of 'pull up' or 'prompt to run the list'. ~~~~~~~ I'm using XP, idki this makes a difference?

    lastfm Masstagger doesnt work on win7? or is it just me

    January 2013
  • hjbardenhagen

    You have to highlight the complete search results page first, e.g. with key combination Ctrl-A so that the app knows which tracks of the search results you want to tag. Then call the next page with the small button in the lower right corner and proceed till the end.

    I have made an *. ico file from the group logo recently that you can use for a Windows desktop icon (right-click it, choose "Properties" from the menu, then "Change symbol"). You can download it here, and the original *.png file, too. maz35 might include it in the next version as well of course: ;-) http://zztopcoverband.kilu.de/lastfm_masstagger.ico http://zztopcoverband.kilu.de/lastfm_masstagger.png

    OK, thanks thanks thanks hjb I think I finally got my head round it! (&maybe my java wasn't updated before...) . I didn't even notice anything called zip this time, it all opened after doubleclicking the 'LastFMmassTagger' file in the folder((I think)). And thanks thanks thanks maz35 for an amazing application.

    @headey: you have to extract the files from the zip archive first. To do that on Windows XP you can highlight the zip file and choose "Extract to..." either from its context menu (right-click) or from the folder "File" menu. Then you will be asked where the single files in the archive should be stored, so you should choose a folder (e.g. c:\program files\Lastfm\ or create a new one. The extraction process will create a new subfolder named as the zip archive with all single files in it. If you click on the *.jar file, the application should appear and also call a Last.fm page in your browser at the same time (so you have to be online) asking for permission to use your Last.fm account data.

    Just thinking, I guess people don't come here too often so if anyone has help maybe they could post it here but give me a shout too. Cheers.

    Has anyone written a 'Dummies Guide To..."? I'm feeling very thick. I think I've seen Java mentioned somewhere on my computer so I guess I've got it... but I'm lost at "extract the archive to a folder and run LastFMmassTagger.jar." ~ I've got "lastfmMasstag0.013.zip" in my download folder & when I open that I've got folders .. & lib & files LastFMMassTagger / bindingslicense / Mass Tagger / README (I read it & it told me to come here for help). If in doubt, at this sort of point, I double click on things. The .jar file gave me 'Could not find the main class: taglast.TagLastApp. Program will exit. The .bat file gave me a brief glimpse of what looked like a small black DOS(?) page. ~~~~~~~ Am I doing OK so far? What do I click next?

    Haven't had time to update this lately, may get around to it eventually. Anyway the zip for the most recent version(v13) now includes the source with the app if anyone wants to play with it. Apologies in advance for my messy code :P

    fun2program8 is correct, it won't launch the authentication for me using Ubuntu 11.10. I tried to fix this, but couldn't find the source on your Sourceforge. Could you release the source or fix this? Preferably both. :)

  • MCNasirJones

    I dont get this.How do you use it??Is ther ea download for it somewere????

    Did you publish the source code?

    August 2011
  • fun2program8

    Soon your application will not work even in Ubuntu. You need to update it to use xdg-open, and then the part of your app that launches a web browser will work in any Linux desktop environment, not just GNOME v2: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/distro-pkg-dev/2011-April/013376.html

  • astroid0

    Is there anyway for it to detect the metadata in my grouping field and submit that automatically? My local tags are pristine, and I would like to be able to just click 'tag data from grouping field' or something like that. It's a really useful program, but something like that would make me actually use last.fm tags and not just local ones.

    I had this program up and running on my external hard drive. It is no longer usable. When I tried to reinstall on my hard drive, the .jar file is not showing up in the hard drive. I have searched and search my Laptop, there is nothing. Can someone please verify if the download is missing the file. When I extract nothing is there.

    On 2nd thoughts, it's only taken ten minutes to do it manually --- I'll always plump for the low-tech solution; all this API stuff brings on my sick headaches ;)

    Having tagged a load of tracks by mistake (in tag rescue project) are there any tools that can be used to remove recently added tracks en masse?

    New version uploaded, supports tagging from playlists and there are tools for clearing all your loved and banned tracks.

    Are you having problems running the program or do you mean your confused as to how to use it in general? It could probably do with a manual/help file..

    Hmm well I'm suspecting the the problem is that older versions of OS X don't officially support Java 1.6 which is annoying. Would be useful if anyone using 10.6 could confirm it works for them.

    I dont know much about macs at all but could someone with a mac try and run the program from the terminal "java -jar taglast.jar" and tell me any output you get there when trying to run it.

    Does not work out of the box on my OS X 10.4 It opens, does nothing for a bit and auto-quits. [2]
