Copy portion of filename to RELEASETIME


#1

I have a bunch of files named thusly: AA1_2008_01_01.mp3 to AA128_2008_05_08.mp3.

I want to use the date from the filename and copy it into the RELEASETIME tag with the format:

2008-01-01T12:00:00Z

Is this possible?

Thanks!

It is possible using Mp3tag's Convert > Actions feature :slight_smile:

Action #1:
Action type: Guess values
Source format: %filename%
Guessing pattern: %dummy%%RELEASETIME%

Action #2:
Action type: Format value
Field: RELEASETIME
Formatstring: $replace(%RELEASETIME%,_,-)T12:00:00Z

Thank you! That works perfectly and saves me a lot of typing :smiley:
