How to autotag %originaldate into year-tag?
Problem nowadays is the Release data of compilations or remastered albums are set as their Year-tag.
So for ex. ''The Beatles - Hey Jude'' will get the year-tag 2017 (if there was any remastered album released that year).
Not good, when you sort your tunes on year & want to grab the ''zeitgeist'' for a playlist.
As MP3tag does not compare separate files, I do not see much hope there.
In a way this would be something like a search for duplicates which has often been requested but never been implemented.
So you would have to resort to some kind of external tool to find these duplicates.
Once you have them, it should be easy to copy the tags from one file to the other.
IF the ORIGINAL YEAR tag excists, it copies that value over to the more common used YEAR tag.
This means, the value should already be there, but it's a start
Now, some have a value of 1996-05-20 for ex.
I just want to end up with 1996.
How do I limit the value written into YEAR to those 4 digits?
