CDJID and mp3 albums
Posted By: Rich Boykin <boykster@j...>
Can anyone shed any light on how the cdjid's are generated for mp3 albums (and cd albums for that matter)? I'm in the idea stage of writing a script/app that will recurse a directory structure and create mp3 albums for cdj, and I'm stumped on how to generate valid cdjid's.
I'm planning on using a directory tree structure as referenced a couple of times in previous posts about this subject.
where ## is track #.
I plan on parsing the directory name for artist/title information, recursing the directory for # of tracks and song titles....I might append track length in the song name, even though cdj seems to play the album/songs fine even if this information is not present (ie -1).
Can anyone shed light on this problem? Specifically, how do I generate valid cdjid's for new mp3 albums?
