Thought I would post snipit of bash to help others lol works on linux but should run on any system with bash and find.

This will find all folders named 'compilation' in the path and make a file called 'madsonic_dir.tag' in that folder.

Code: Select all

find /full/path/to/music -type d -name 'compilation'  -exec bash -c "cd '{}' && touch madsonic_dir.tag" \;
Can be used for more. I think people can work the rest out.

Saved me some time as I have all my music in a /artist/type of release/the name of the release.
