Do you have iTunes configured to automatically download Artwork? This is vital.
I couldn't find the automatically download iTunes Artwork checkbox in the latest version of iTunes, where is it?
2/ It's not going to be easy stripping languages using string manipulation because it is a blind process resulting a dirty job. One would also then need the ability to select which language to save lyrics in.

3/ Next builds of iTSfv will attempt to trim unnecessary line breaks at the end of the lyrics.
...I want a very simple rating based on plays per month (PPM), week, whatever. Basically an average plays per time period...
I see. That makes sense. I'll talk to you in a couple on months then. Good luck QuoteQuoteHi,I was wondering whether you are still checking the forums here or if you are moved on / are busy with other stuff.LaterHi Jojo, Still there! Sorry I have been extremely busy with thesis work. Can't put mind to anything else that feels guilty doing. I am hoping we could get back to all of this in 5 months. Best, McoreD

unfortunately I am really busy in this coming months because it is nearly the few final months of my Earthquake engineering project I mentioned a few posts earlier. I can do any help to get your up and running iTSfv form source so you can tinker it. I will get back to action better than ever after this June. McoreD.
In addition, for some odd reason, lyrics imported from get extra line spaces in between.Something like;QuotePrincess cards she sends me with her regards,Oh, bar-room eyes shine vacancyTo see her you gotta look hardhas turned intoQuotePrincess cards she sends me with her regards,Oh, bar-room eyes shine vacancyTo see her you gotta look hardnot funny

So I'm using the latest version of ITSFV, which works great, and is the best tagging/fixing software I've ever used, by far. However, I'm running into some issues with the "year" tag. Specifically, it's not being filled in for me. I'm using the "validate selected tags" button, which seems to get the lyrics, artwork, etc - but not the year. That's important because once my music is correctly cataloged, I wanted to make smart playlists based on favorite songs in a certain year, (ie, all 5 star songs from 1998). Am I doing something wrong? Perhaps missing a check box? So, ITSFV has forced me to fix so much of my tags, including many where the artists were spelled wrong, or might have had a space at the end of their name (and were listed separately). My question is - I had some folders called "Wycleff Jean", "Wyclef Jeane", etc. - now they're empty, save for artwork. How can I tell ITSFV to delete all those folders (once it's confirmed that there is no music in them)? Next - how can ITSFV find a track and all it's information if the album name isn't present in the existing ID3 tag? I seem to have gotten many mp3s from friends over the years, and since ITSFV doesn't have the album info in in the tag, it really can't do anything. I'd love if it found the first album it was available on (not the Greatest Hits) and filled everything else in. Also - and this is just a suggestion - on a "Greatest Hits" type album, could the software fill in the year a track was popular as opposed to the year the Greatest Hits album was released? Perhaps you could query the database for "first year song was available" or "year the first album with this song was available". Just an idea, because that would help with my 5-star playlist featuring songs from 1998. Thanks.
I feel stupid. I am trying to do what I think is one of the simpleist bullet items from the 1st post and failing...Copy Folder.jpg to album foldersI am making the assumption this will copy all my wonderful folder.jpg cover art into something iTunes will like without embedding it in the MP3s, right?All my music is in self managed folders that I use Media Monkey as my PC based manager/player. (Please do not suggest I just use that to manage my iPod.)So, I have enabled automatic artwork download (which creates another issue I'll deal with later.)Music Folders added.Options, tracks, artwork:...Import Artwork in album folder from selected and set to Folder.jpg...Import Artwork from any single image file in album folder checked and unchecked tried...Do Nots all uncheckedWhen I validate tracks, it correctly recognizes the artwork as missing, but does nothing about it!Help!Other questions:Some of the artwork iTunes automatically downloaded is wrong, or from a different release of an album, etc. Would like those to use my Folder.jpg art as well. Hopefully when I get the first part working, then the Prompt settings in OneTouch options will come into play.I have a bunch of collections and soundtracks with [album artist] set to "Various", but iTunes insists on listing every track as a different albums in grid and cover flow. Any ideas how to resolve this?Thanks
How is it best to handle podcasts with this app? If I add the podcast folder to the list of music folders, iTMSfv tries to validate them. If I remove the podcast folder from the list of music folders, iTMSfv removes the podcasts from the iTunes database!
