    Hi guys,

    I know there have been multiple threads about this topic, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find any answer.

    Is there any effective way to tag lots of tv episodes? I got like 100 tv episodes that miss all tags. I would like to add like description and airdate and some other stuff to them. But it would take for ages to do it manually for every episode. I have been using metax, but I haven't figured out anyway to do what I want.

    Anyone done this and could help me out?

    MetaX is your best option. I use it on TV show seasons and do them all at once. That way, I can select all of the files and change the artwork, show name, actors, genre, rating, network, season, etc. On about 22 files at once. I have to do the episode titles and episode numbers one at a time, but that's just how you do it. Can't really do better than that.

    Right, so you can't make metax assign descriptions, titles, episode id's automatically to each episode and one would then just check that they are correct before pressing the write button?

    I think we're on the same page. Just add whatever titles you want to to the right-side queue. Then highlight them all. Add whatever tags you need that you want to go on EVERY selected file. The ones you check will be put on every file. That's most useful on the show title, season number, genre, network. Quite useless on episode title and number. You just gotta do those one at a time.

    Also, make sure to do all your tagging on a local disk. I sometimes I have to do mine on network disks and it can be sloooow.
