MM5 replacements for Scripts available for MM4

Post by pip_pill »

Are the Scripts for MM4 to be part of MM5 release software?
Namely for me:
1 Capitol letter correction
2 Fix Trailing The
3 RegExp Find and Replace
4 Music Classification
5 Find Missing The
etc
My library is in need of some tidying and I am trying to stay with MM5 betas (rather than MM4) to familiar myself with it....
I have done some reading on the forums, but no specific answer to these question as far as I could see, just opinions!

Any Third Party Addons need to be rewritten to work with MediaMonkey 5, this can be quite a bit of work and it will depend on each Addon developer if they're willing to do it.

The Case Checker just requires you to select files and use it (right click, Edit Files > Case Checker). Like MediaMonkey 4 it has no options, if you have them in MediaMonkey 4 you're likely using a Third Party Addon.

Is there already an API in place to make MM5 add-ons, or is it still in the works? I vaguely remember looking at a thread that discussed it, saying the API is up for change, but I believe it was from a while ago.

MM5 is nearing release, so very few changes would be expected. See: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 27&t=81285

No, use it all the time and no crashes. Capture this crash in a debug log (step 4b) and attach it to a Support Ticket: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 30&t=86643

I will test try Case Checker MM5 and report crashes as suggested if it happens, I am trying to familiarize myself with how to capture crashes as I have a few, but have not done a debug log before.

NB. Case Checker MM5 seems to work ok with smaller number of files ie an album 10-15 files or an artist 20 - 30 files although.. (see below).

I was disappointed that when using it "and" "to" "the" etc when appearing in the middle of a "Artist" "Title" "Album" Album Artist" that it changed these to "And" "To" "The" ie capitalized -its probably to much to expect that there would be exceptions to the case checking as I realise this was not available in MM4.

Could it be that the crash is because I am trying to Case Checker on 92K files plus ie the whole library, there is no statement of volume limit of files to Case Checker against, maybe this should be "advised" to the user on selecting case checker script to run..!
Also, when Case Checking there is not Before and After only displays the after ie the result change to the tags

I'd recommend against modifying large amounts of files at one time.
