managing MP3 tags with scripts

Post by Daniele » Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:25 am

The "Auto-Tag from Filename" function is very useful but not all the tags can be used.
But the scripts can help; e. g. if I want to load the "Lyricist" tag I use the "Auto-Tag from Filename" putting the Lyricist name into the "Publisher" tag (which is not useful for me) and then using a script I can copy Publisher into Lyricist.
Unfortunately I cannot do the same with the tag "Composer" that cannot be used, with this name, in the script (I tried writing "itm.Composer").
Is it possible to have a list of all the tags that can be referenced in a script ?

Regards, Daniele

For composer you want "itm.Author". There's a full list on the wiki... http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/SDBSongData
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

If you are referring to Composer for Classical music than answer would be that tags are cross-linked Change Track Type to Music you can see equivalent of Composer.
