Edit: This also causes the script to crash if there aren't at least 37 childNodes in the meta-data.

I am currently working on a script that should work for everyone because it is more generic and will release it once I am able to test it more.

This script works fine on aac and opus. Also i use russian vlc that can make difference. Your script looks messy("Heavy Python")! Anyway thank for reviewing!

EDIT: I was pointing to childnode[36] cuz it was minidom. You using ET, that makes difference in programming.
