page was renamed from MetaPD

MetaMP is a metadata client for MPD. It's a work in progress, but I would really appreciate it if you could try it and let me know what you think. Send bugs/suggestions/comments/hatemail to boris at this domain.

Often I find myself liking very few of the new songs I hear in radio. I also have a large library of music that I like. I end up listening to the same songs via as in my library!

'''Update''': Please also check out LastGenre, a genre tagger.


= Todo =

Playing: * Allow filtering based on multiple tags

metamp play -t punk,pop

= 0.1.1 =

I've released version 0.1.1, -0.1.1.tar.gz. It mostly consists of bugfixes, but here is a partial list of stuff changed: * Optimize database updating (don't re-update already tagged files from * If song tag is not found, fall back to artist tag

Tagging: * Use

metamp autotag -p /
to tag the entire music database.

Bugs: * makii's issue with localization
