[X] Filename to Tag info mis-reading


#1

When I start a batch of taggings from filename to tag I get the following result:

I sort every album cronologically in folders:

MP3
|- AC-DC - 1980 - Back In Black
||- AC-DC - Back In Black - 01 - Hells Bells
etc...

So I use the following input filter to get all tags from the folder and filename:

%artist% - %date% - %album%\\%artist% - %album% - %tracknumber% - %title%

The result is that the artist-field looks like this:

AC-DC AC-DC

And the Album-field looks the same (both because %artist% and %album% appears twice in the input-filter)...

Is there any way to fix this, so that the %artist% and %album% fields are only obtained once?

The correct formatstring would be %dummy% - %year% - %dummy%\%artist% - %album% - %track% - %title%

This report has been marked as "No Bug"

I feel like doing a Homer Simpson here...

Thanks a ton Florian (hmmm... Florian makes me think of Kraftwerk... starts to dig through the MP3 archive for Kraftwerk albums)
