I have all my music stored with filenames ex. like this
Jellybean - The Real Thing (1987)
Now , what kind of string can I use in filename to tag, to extract the and populate the "Artist , Title , Year"
If I use the format string : ARTIST - TITLE , only artist field is populated with the complete filename OR title with the complete filename , but not separated ...
Is here a possibility to add screenshots so I can show it...
Thanks for your reply Here is a screenshot from how I want it to be automatically rename, in this screenshot I did it all manually... So left is the filename , containing : Artist - Title (Year)
This info need to be converted to the corresponding tags .. HOW and where do I need to fill in the strings ... I try with the convertor ... but I loose always , OR the artist, or the title ..
Every character and space counts.
Also, it could be that the hyphen in the filename is not the hyphen that you (can) enter via the keyboard but only looking like one.
So, what happens, if you copy and paste that character?
I think that the converter has a preview that dynamically shows what would be put into which field - if you type in the formatstring - up to which character does the preview work?
Sorry to annoy you with this ... I tryed the following. see screenshot , almost ok , but now its also separating the year field , which is ok for filling up the year tag , but I want the year also after the artist like in the filename...
