Ok. 
They need to be 128kbs. The File Name should read Band - Album - Track Number - Track Name.

Like this:



Zip them up (if there is more than one file) and send them by "yousendit" or "megaupload" etc to
admin.progarchives@googlemail.com
Thank you.

People should really do this more. Is there a limit of songs for one album/band?

Are there any legal issues with just adding mp3 files for streaming without the artist's permission Question

Here is how the file's "tag" should look:




you can edit the MP3s tag in Windows Media Player and a host of other players.

With all due respect to the guy that sent me this file,

THIS IS HOW NOT TO DO IT...



Needless to say the "Artist" name given is NOT the artist and the "Title" of the track is not "track 12"

and this guy couldnt understand why I hadnt added his files...I was looking for a band called Nieznany....

I can recode virtually any file,but that's not the point. It all takes extra,unnecessary time for me,time I havent got!

with all due respect Tuzzy, the artist is listed as "Nieznany Wykonawca", the title of the track as "track 12" and the "comments tag" is incorrect.

Yes, we are grateful for anything that is sent, but this is tempered by the extra work that is created when simple instructions arent followed.

Please keep the files coming, just dont make pointed posts like "why hasnt X been added,I sent them 3
weeks ago" when YOU have created the hold up.

Ok, how to edit tags using Windows Media Player 11.

This has changed slightly (and for the worse) in this version .

However, first select the track for playing in WM Player.
"Stop" the track and "right click" on it. Select "find in library" as in the image below:



This will open the Library view in WMP:



Righ-click on the track name and select "advanced tag editor"



Fill in all the boxes you can, including the "http://www.progarchives.com" in the "comments" tab box you can see below:



Then click "apply" and your file is now properly tagged.

Now to complete the job.

Locate the file where it is stored and right-click on ot and select "properties":



in the box near the top type "band name" - "album name" - "track number" - "track title" .mp3 as below:



Done.

Great tutorial.Clap

Except. You don't have to stop playing the music. Just click on the Library tab and then click on "Now Playing" and you can access the album by selecting all the tracks and right clicking.

once music is on your harddisk, that means you can do anything with it, it's code free.
