It's annoying to move downloaded albums from the Torrent downloads folder to my music folder.
It takes time and i have to stop seeding. But i just came up with a solution, check out this screenshot:

http://i.imgur.com/5UKGo.jpg
(my foobar setup is to the right, Torrent is maximized, Torrents options is the left small window and foobars pref. window is the right one).

Step1: Open Torrents options, goto the directories tab, and check "Append the torrent's label" checkbox.
Step2: Download an album from the internets, (BE SURE NOT TO BREAK ANY LAWS).
Step3: Goto the downloads tab in Torrent, your album shoulld be the latest addad torrent. If not visible create, (right click on the columns bar), the label column.
Then, create a new label, (rightclick on the empty space in the label column on the torrent's row) for the album. And name it "Musik\Torrent"
Step4: Wait for the download to finish.
Step5: Open up Foobar2000's preferences window, and goto Media Library and click on the Add button.
Step6: Browse to your Torrent downloads folder and select the folder called Musik.
Step7: Click apply, and voilį, all music downloaded with Torrent and labeled (if the label was applied before the album finnished downloading) Musik\Torrent
Will show up in your Albumlist in a folder called Torrent and in your media library

No more moving folders.
I hope someone will find this useful.

While you're dancing on the edge regarding a ToS#9 warning, since this is more or less an obvious piracy guide, it's essentially one step:

Step1: Add Download folder to monitored folders of Media Library.

It is in fact probably useful to use the label feature of µTorrent for organizing, but I fail to see how this is foobar2000 related. And it doesn't help if you need to re-tag the files to fit in your tagging scheme. Since to me this is a piracy guide, I think this post is probably better suited for the community where you "trade" your files than the official foobar2000 board.

No if you just add your torrent-download folder, all folders and media files within it will be added to your albumlist/library. Also if you like me have a directory based music library the albums in your folders from your download folder will be mixed up in your library root folder, where i have my albums sorted by gengre.

If any admins think i break any rules, contact me and maybe i can rewrite the post and change the picture. But i clearly states that you should not break any laws while downloading music.

OK, I see your point regarding the labels. And I don't think a rewrite is necessary, but I really expect this to be moved or binned, soon. I wouldn't want to see these kind of guides on my official board, to be honest.
