Turning my music and video collection over to Audials One

I’m not sure why it didn’t occur to me earlier, but I just recently decided to let Audials One index all my movies and music, something I’ve tried half a dozen times with other programs and it’s never seemed to work out. I just want a program to go through my drive and make an index of all the movies and music. I don’t want to add them one at a time and go through the process of adding metadata and box covers. If nothing else, just make an index by file and folder name, in most cases that will be enough to get started. All these movie and music collector apps make it too hard to get started. But Audials makes a simple index just like I want. It will use metadata if it finds it, otherwise you get a big list of files you can search for by name. Now we’re making progress!

Now that I have my “database” of files I can set the metadata after the fact. There is an Edit Tags box to set Artist, Title, Album, Year and a few other options. Audials will also checked the web to see if it can fill in the details for you. This works very well for music (provided you spell the album name and artist name correctly!)

It wouldn’t be very useful to just find the information without being able to play it. Audials handles that as well. Once you find your music or movie you can play it right from there. You can make a playlist of specific items or just click the first file in the list and let it go. That’s pretty nice!

Another handy feature is that Audials keeps music and movies separate. Sure, they’re media, but just because you’re looking for a movie doesn’t mean you want the soundtrack. This is the way it should be. Now if you disagree, that’s fine too, there is the All Media Files option so you can search through both groups at the same time.

Audials is turning out to be a pretty impressive media player. I still have a fair ways to go before all the video is tagged correctly, but at least I don’t have a problem finding anything.
