I am in the process of a major overhaul of my karaoke collection. In the early days I was not as careful with my tagging as I should have been, I am about to use a Karaoke player that relies on filenames, so I need to get all my tags uniform so that the tag to filename option will give me consistent filenames.
The album tag must only have one hypen – SunFly001-01. some of mine have two – SunFly-001-01 or even SunFly – 001 – 01.
It would be good if I could execute a filter to find all album tags with 2 or more hyphens and then perform an action that would remove the first or second hyphen.
My next problem involves Ozzy Osbourne etc etc. Some entries are Ozzy Osbourn (no e). if I perform an action –change ‘Ozzy Osbourn’ to ‘Ozzy Osbourne’ then if the entry was already ‘Ozzy Osbourne’ I get ‘Ozzy Osbournee’ (2e). (just changing 'Osbourn' is not an option.)
Also if I want to change an entry that is just ‘Ozzy’ to ‘Ozzy Osbourne’ if the entry is already ‘Ozzy Osbourne’ I get ‘Ozzy Osbourne Osbourne’.
I am sure there is a simple solution, there always is, but I just cannot see it.
