From the Bongo introductory text at <http://www.brockman.se/software/bongo/>:

For the best Bongo user experience, your media files should have hierarchical file names.  That is, they should be named according to one of the following templates:

  • ARTIST-NAME - ALBUM-YEAR - ALBUM-TITLE - TRACK-INDEX - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • ARTIST-NAME - ALBUM-TITLE - TRACK-INDEX - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • ARTIST-NAME - ALBUM-YEAR - ALBUM-TITLE - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • ARTIST-NAME - ALBUM-TITLE - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • ARTIST-NAME - ALBUM-TITLE - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • ARTIST-NAME - TRACK-TITLE.ogg
  • TRACK-TITLE.ogg

In other words, any reasonable combination of ARTIST-NAME, ALBUM-YEAR, ALBUM-TITLE, TRACK-INDEX, and TRACK-TITLE, in the right order (less specific to more specific), should be okay.  Embedding the metadata in the file name is not only very practical, but speeds up the process of fetching it.

You don’t have to use “ogg” as the file name extension for all your media, of course, and you don’t have to use “ - ” as the separator.  However, you can’t use slash as the separator and just have your files in nested directories. The information needs to be in the basename of each file.

[XXX: This restriction should be relaxed.  Maybe by adding a variable called ‘bongo-file-name-roots’, which would define one or more sets of file names that were to be parsed as if “/” were the field separator.]
