270 is nothing, it takes seconds using my method, I could have the job done in less than an hour.

End of conversation sorry.

  Tried your way and still issues which is what I'm trying to explain.  Etouch should recognise these images attached the issue is somewhere else.

You do not have the files matching that is why it is not working

Even though I said end of conversation but looking at the picture you have the mp4 with 00 and then a completly different tag file, so it is not going to work anyway.

Does it pick up the tags for genre and year? Am I correct in thinking your issue is just it doesn't add them to the artist filter?

Having the band filled as well as the artist would fill in the tags properly, it is what the non mp3 tagger uses.

It works fine and dandy for version 9, so unless some new bugs in version 10 then everything should work for him.

Dare I ask, are you running as admin?

I presume you have created your library before hand and now just updating?

I would delete all video files from the etouch directory and then generate library again

Maybe on a test few videos, that have been tagged properly and are named the same as the mp4.tag file

The mp4.tag file should be a text file and not winamp

Firstly I would recommend looking at your directory structure.

You have 2 unlimited - song title, 2 pac feat dre drey - song title

You will have a lot of problems in the future if you want to transfer files across

I am doing into weeks e.g the charts but I used to have it as such

ARTIST DIRECTORY - 2 Unlimited
SONG DIRECTORY- Get Ready For This
SONG DIRECTORY - No Limits

Your file naming leaves a lot to be desired, I would imagine that this might be one of your problems, anything above 255 characters will be a problem.

I am not on my work PC, so do not have etouch installed on here,

Download this https://1drv.ms/f/s!AomP_UjArPHUdZMMVHsYdAQV1FA it has been tested on my pc so include it into your video folder and then generate

Yeah I did that and the niall video doesn't show in my artist filter either it shows exactly the same as all my other mp4s do.  So I'm guessing its not a tag problem.?

What version of etouch are you using?

I know for myself that should have worked as it is installed on my system with no problems at all
