Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"
From: Glenn Ervin at Home (
Date: 2004-04-12

Hi Brian,
I did change my MP3 files to TBX, and it does not work.
I also changed the file name from the same as the directory to .dirname, and
I put each file into the folder, rather than the folder where the folder

Any ideas?

If you are using a recent daily build, the files now need to be named
.dirname.tbx rather than .dirname.mp3. This keeps the clips from showing
up in playlists/id3 taggers/etc., and we bothered Joerg until he changed
it. =)

If you use the latest version of the mp3clipgen.vbs script, it will
rename any existing.dirname.mp3 files to .dirname.tbx, and create
.dirname.tbx files for any folders that do not yet have a 'talkbox' clip
