I have a few downloaded podcast MP3s, and I'd like to set up some basic metadata for them (artist name, album for date) in Windows Media Player. Is there a way to do this without downloading a program (create a metadata file or the like)? Otherwise, can you recommend a decent program to do this.

In the list view, click on the field to make it editable. It's kind of like a slow double-click.

Edit: think I may have misunderstood. Do you mean edit metadata on downloaded podcasts within WMP or to setup a regular set of metadata for specific podcasts?

I think what you suggest is accurate. – C. Ross Oct 6 '09 at 14:20
B, you're talking about in WMP, right? or in an Explorer window? clarify your answer for us pls. – quack quixote Oct 6 '09 at 14:20
In WMP. You select the song you're interested in in the library, and edit the fields. – C. Ross Oct 6 '09 at 18:09
