%_folderpath% will change:
to (after automatic correction):
So even though
%_folderpath is an absolute path, I can't get it to work here.
Edit: Interestingly, adding
\\ to the start of
\\%_folderpath%\$replace(%album%,/,_,?,_,*,_,",_,<,_,>,_,|,_,:,_,\,_).m3u8 at least allows me to OK the string without Mp3tag complaining, but when I try to write a playlist file, it shows
\\C\Users\my_user\Desktop\New folder\_________.m3u8. If you notice,
C\ is missing
:. Not sure what's up with that.
I'm not sure how it works for you; when I try to use that string, Mp3tag complains that the "Following characters are not allowed in file names: \ / : * ? " < > |" and wants to apply an automatic correction. After I apply it, the
$replace is again all underscores (like above).
All I want is an album name of
\/?*"<>|: to be replaced by nine underscores
_________ when creating a m3u8 playlist file. I just can't figure it out.
Assuming ID3v2.4, ID3 wiki:
TDRC (recording time) consolidates [v2.3's] TDAT (date), TIME (time), TRDA (recording dates), and TYER (year)
TDRC The 'Recording time' frame contains a timestamp describing when the audio was recorded. timestamp format is described in the ID3v2 structure document [ID3v2-strct].
… valid timestamps are yyyy, yyyy-MM, yyyy-MM-dd, yyyy-MM-ddTHH, yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm and yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.
… so it seems dates longer than just
yyyy are fine.
I in fact don't use
YEAR as it's mapped to
DATE being a VorbisComment field which I like to use). If I was using ID3's convention,
RELEASETIME does indeed seem to be the more accurate field to use for such info though.
