id3ed manipulating multiple files at a time
 
Hi there,

I would like to use id3ed to manipulate multiple mp3 files at a time. There must be some kind of way with a pipe ???

Let's say I want all the mp3-files that have something to do with Nirvana marked as Grunge in the genre "field". My directory music directory looks a bit like this:

|-music
| |-a
| |-b
| |-...
| |-n
| | |-nirvana
...
...

There's a possibility that some other files that contain the name Nirvana are in another directory. So I go to the main "music" directory and let a search function do it's job in all the directories. Every match it finds has to be piped to id3ed and that changes the "genre" field to Grunge.

I think there must be a way with a pipe. I tried a few things but they didn't work.

(I think multiple spaces are not shown in my post, my directory structure is not really clear posted)
