Does anybody want to help me with a regular expression to shorten the "Year" fiels in my tags.
A lot of my year tags are as: 1998-10-12 or 2008-10.
But I only want to use the year without month and day info.
I know an action can be created for this but since I don't have any knowledge of regular expressions, I can't figure out how to do this. I did look at the examples in this forum, but I can't translate it to my needs.
So if anyone can give met the right code I would be grateful!.
Is there a function/action to delete/blank all MP3 ID3v1 tags?
I only want to use ID3v2.3.
Great program by the way!
You can try format value
In the mp3tag options you can set deleting ID3v1 only.
Thanks! That works fine!
About deleting ID3v1 tags:
Some files are already saved with v2.4 tags. Opening the files in MP3Tag and just 'Select all' + Ctrl-S does save them changing ID3v2.4 to ID3v2.3.
But the existing ID3v1's are not removed. When I cut the tags and then paste them back, the ID3v1's are gone.
But deleting tags on a larger amount of files is a bit dangerous, I guess..
Is there a better way?
How to delete only ID3v1:
Go to "Tools > Options > Tags > Mpeg"
Set Remove to
[ ] APE
[ ] ID3v2
Then use "File > Remove Tag" [Ctrl+R] to remove the ID3v1
Very smart solution, and without risk.
I really learn more and more about this wonderful program.
