Simple music sorting script.
Posted on 2006-05-09
Hey, I was wondering if it would be possible to make a script that would half-automate the process of sorting out my hundreds of music files. Basically, I want to sort them out into folder, depending what their style is(i.e. soothing, thrilling, suspenseful, happy, etc.). Simply put, I want it to do this:
Play a random thirty seconds of the first music file in the folder, during which time I can press a key that will move it into a folder(when I press "s", it goes into the suspeneful folder). As soon as I press the key, it moves on to the next music file, playing another random thirty seconds from there, and again, I press the appropriate key to move it into the appropriate folder.
I would prefer the script be something that I can just use(i.e. an sh script), but if my requirements need another language, then the requirements should come first. For the music player, it can be whatever will work with mp3 files, I'm willing to download another(linux compatible of course).
Thank you for your time.
