I was adding folders to Windows Media Player Music Library (via Manage Music Library) and since I have too many music folders, I wondered if there is a way to add them all at once to the Library. It will be a real time saver.
To make it clear: The Windows Media Music Library is actually the Music Library of your Windows system. Apart from using the GUI that comes with Windows, you can also use alternative command-line tools to add a folder to a library.
Here is an article that lists some of such tools: http://www.grimadmin.com/article.php/creating-modifying-windows-7-libraries (download
As an example, you can add a folder to the Music Library using
shlib like this:
shlib add "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\Music.library-ms" "C:\Files\Audio\01\Skrileks"
slutil, it would look like that:
slutil addfolder Music "C:\Files\Audio\01\Skrileks"
To add more than one folder, you can create and run a batch file.
I found an easy way to do it - choose the folders you want to add and drag and drop them in the Folder View of the Music Library.
