Tagging: $if a String contains another String

Post by derKaba » Thu Mar 20, 2014 4:49 pm

Hi,
what I want is to Name my movie files like this e.g.: Lord of the Rings [720p]
(--> <Title> [<Quality>] (if this "Quality" tag would exist))
while the parent folder has the information I need in it, i want this "720p" to be in the filename too.
So i want to search the parent folders string for "720p" and then write it in the filename.

All I tried was something like this:
.\<Title> $if(<Path>= 720p, [720p],)
in words: if the parent folder string contains the string "720p", then write [720p] into the filename, else write nothing.
I also tried <Path>= *720p* or *"720p"* or *'720p'* . But it doesn't work, because i think, that "=" really only wants to have an exact match.

Is there an operator I can use for this problem?

Thanks in advance!

You can't do contains.

Only way to do something like this in MM is to use collections and auto-organize (options > Auto-organize). The collection identifies the files (you can use "Contains" in path or other fields)

Thanks for the answers. Could you give me an example of the syntax I have to use?
Obviously it's not: .\$if(<Path> "Contains" "720p", [720],)

Edit: ah, ok, I see that this "Options->Auto-Organize" is only available for Gold Version. Damn

The RegExp Find & Replace script may be able to accomplish this for you.

Hi,
I am also searching for a solution for this or a similar problem. I want to fill tags if a string in the path/filename is found (e.g. string 720p exists in the filename then add 720p to the title tag). How can this be achieved with RegExp Find & Replace script ?

Or is this only possible with the auto organize scripts?

Your best bet is to put that question in the Regedit find and repace thread.

Here .. http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=28510
