We're building a database of audio shows and all the metadata about the events where they were recorded is in the %album% field currently. So the albums display in media players like:
%date%: %promoter%, "%event%: %arena%": %venue%, %location%, %country%
1996-03-09: Helter Skelter, "Voyager: The Technodrome": Sanctuary Music Arena, Milton Keynes, UK
So if I have a massive folder of files with all the details following this same format, how can I push all those variables into separate tags using the ... mapping? (I don't know all the terms for this stuff. I've already got the formula in reverse really.
Once all those details are broken up into more categories, it will be easier to arrange files by other criterea like %country% or %venue% and potentially rename files in more ways to suit more people.
I hope somebody knows a trick or two to automate an otherwise tedious task! Thanks!
Obviously I realise that many media players won't handle my custom tags like %venue%, but as long as that info is embedded in my files and I open them in MP3Tag, I should be able to utilise them to rename files in new ways in bulk.
