Apologies if this has been discussed before. I have tried searching the forum and going through help files but couldn't find anything that fulfills all my requirements.
I have a collection of mp3s that I have gathered over the years. I am looking to do some house keeping on my music collection and I think I have found the right tool here to do this A lot of my music files contains unnecessary tag information like www.sitename.com included in various tag fields and file names. I have been playing around with Actions and I think I have found a way to remove the strings from file name and title using _ALL. I have tried to use _TAG to remove from all tag fields but this does not work for some reason. I was wondering if there is any easier way to remove these information from title and tag fields in one go. To make things little worse, not all files have the same tag information. For example, song1 contains www.sitename1.com and song2 contains www.sitename2.com etc so there are more than one strings that I am looking to search in all my files and replace in one go. It doesn't matter even if I need to create more than one action as long as the job gets done
Sorry for the long post. In a nutshell, I am looking for an easier way to:
- Remove "- www.sitename.com" from "filename - www.sitename.com"
- Remove www.sitename1.com, www.sitename2.com etc from all tag fields including title
- Copy tag info from title to filename and number them as 01 - title1, 02 - title2 etc in their corresponding folders (I have managed to achieve part of this using Convert > Tag - Filename)
Many thanks for taking the time to read this and look forward to your suggestions.
