Title and Artist


#1

Please can someone help me out with this. I have a mp3 file and it has the artist and songtitle in the filename ie: james brown - I feel good.mp3. I would like to copy the artist name out of the title and put it into the artist field and then do the same with the song and put that in the title field. So that now when you read it acrross it would read: James Brown - I feel good James Brown I feel good. I hope that you understand. Thanks in advance.

Just open the converter :mt_ftt: Filename - Tag and use
%artist% - %title%
as format string.

Please see How do I change upper/lower case of tag-fields or filenames? for the next step :slight_smile:

Best regards,

I have a filename that looks like this:

The O'Jays - 01 - Backstabbers.mp3

and I would like to extract the artist and the name of the song. How can I omit certain parts
I would like it to look like this

The O'Jays - Backstabbers : removing the track number automatically.

If I can do this then that would be great.

You can omit parts of the filename by using %dummy%.

So, %artist% - %dummy% - %title% would be a valid formatstring.
