MediaOrganizer plugin can accept only files with extensions, specified in Extensions Manager. By default plugin has only audio format extensions. To add yours – press Add New Extension. Separate each extension with “,” . Name of the set will be placed in Database as Type attribute value for newly added files with corresponding extensions.
Attributes Manager is for creating and managing attributes. Checkboxes allow you to show/hide attributes from certain parts of the interface.
Plugin comes with default set of attributes which cannot be renamed or deleted.
–Library Folder – handy way to store all your stuff – keep it in one “media library” folder. During the working process you may save some new files there and lately, after all, scan that folder by clicking Settings->Scan Library Folder. All files, that were created after the previous scan, will be added into Database.
–Database Folder – path to the actual database.
–Edit attributes before drop into Database – while moving new files into Database, dialog window will pop up, so you can manage attributes before files will be added.
How to use

After Database has been created – graphic interface of the plugin will appear.
