I'm demo'ing a video dj program (ClubDJ ProVJ) that uses ID3 tags, but cannot seem to find a way to tag the *thousands* of mpeg-1 and mpeg-2 files in my current collection. Without the tags, I cannot populate the Artist and Song fields properly.

Has anyone had success tagging their old mpeg-1 and mpeg-2 video files for use with ProVJ? How are you doing it?

From what I understand you cannot tag videos. I use Virtual DJ for my video DJing and have found that if you name the file correctly it will properly populate the correct fields (i.e. artist, title, etc).

I would play around with renaming and see how your software reads it. It does suck to rename all those files. I'm pretty sure there is some free ware that will auto rename in batches. Like lets say all of your track and named artist, title, and you need them reversed.

Good luck!

While I'm not familiar with the software program you're using, I also do not believe you can ID3 tag .mpg1 or .mpg2 files. However, you CAN tag .mp4 video files with several taggers, including Tag & Rename. I did a big batch of those last week.

I've tried renaming files, tried converting mpg1 & mpg2 to mp4, and tried re-ripping to mp4. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a setting to rip a clean mp4, the converted mpg1 & mpg2 are worse, and the renaming has had zero effect with ProVJ.

The other ripper I have is ClubDJ's VJ Ripper Pro which, ironically, does not rip mp4. Therefore any video I ripped with ClubDJ's own video ripping program is unable to be tagged by their own VJ software (unless there's some feature I'm missing). How stupid is that?

I also demo'ed Virtual DJ, but it's just not the right software for me. :(
