Hello, hoping Mr 2MR2 or any other seasoned scriptor/scripter of Yate can help me along. So I'm working on a ton of files for a radio station, well the benefit of it, I get the music as well. But it's really, really badly tagged, to, basically nothing but paths. I've been chugging along with a script for mass tagging these files, and for the most part, got it. But I'm only about 28gb in of a little 256. To say the least, I'm going to need to get this done a bit more efficiently!!
Here is what I'm trying to do. An example file/folder /Volumes/My Filez/Music/GoGo/To Tag/Bela Dona/BELA DONA My Place 11-2-09/My Place 11-2-09 (Disc 1)/1-04 11_2_09 @ My Place Part 4.mp3 ( I so wish there was a forced minimum tagging standard!!!)
After sorting through the hundreds of folders, you'll see after /To Tag, that's the artist field. The next in the path is the album. For the most part, I've been able to get thru a good bit of the little 28GB I've done with that. But that next / is the issue. Folders with separate Discs. Now, after all of that wind of an explanation, what I'm looking for is,
1. Parse the (Disc *) portion into something I can either scan for or find in the Path for File to Tag or equivalent.
2. Use that (Disc *) as an indicator that When I do my move functions to Subfolders I need to use a different move/rename Template. (I know this can be done with If statements and whatnot, but not sure what to key in on)
I pretty much have the rest, and these files are a dirty mess of a nest, but I'm working through it. But how much better would it be to just click a button and have it a good majority done. I believe and know, Yate can do it, but my brain is fried between .net and all the other Windoz madness.
Any insight is much appreciated.
