I have looked everywhere for this option (and its about the only thing that annoys me about MP3TAG in the last few years I've been using it)..
Basically in things like EAC there is a substitution menu where the user can specify what charactors to use to replace certain invalid charactors when converting tag's to filenames.. This would be very very useful in MP3TAG..
As an example.. If I have a song with 2 artists it would be tagged as ARTIST1/ARTIST2 in the artist field (which is my preference as WMP understands this and seperates it out.. as well as my in car player)
If I then do Tag -> filename and use the Artist field it will just put it in as:
- ARTIST1ARTIST2 - TRACK.MP3 (as an example)
Because the / is an illegal charactor in windows filenames it just misses it out and puts the two artists after each other without even a space, what I would like to happen is to be able to set an automatic replace to replace / with ', ' (comma space) on conversion.. this would mean it would have tagged the file:
- ARTIST1, ARTIST2 - TRACK.MP3
This would be configurable so that you can choose which to replace and with what. As a starting point the defaults in EAC would be good as defaults in mp3tag:
Replace " with '' (2 single quotes)
Replace \ with -
Replace / with ,
Replace : with -
replace * with x
replace ? with a space
replace < with [
replace > with ]
replace ¦ with !
I have attached a screenshot of the relevant configuration screen in EAC to show what i mean, and how simple this could be.
If this is aready possible I apologise, but ive looked many times and never seen the option.
