Two main toolbar buttons (Find & Replace and RegExp Presets) currently cannot be removed, but they would be configurable in the next version.

I would like to replace a couple of different phrases in both the tag and in the filename. I can get MM to construct filenames from tag information, so this is no problem.

1. Replace the open & close parenthesis with open & close brackets, i.e., "(" -> "[" ... and ")" -> "]".
2. Replace "DISC 1" with "CD 01," i.e., "[DISC 1]" -> "[CD 01]"
3. Replace the word "and" with the ampersand, i.e., "Tommy James and The Shondells" -> "Tommy James & The Shondells"

There simply is no consistency when using Gracenote. :(

Thanks!

Well, this is so simple that you even don't need to use Regular expression or VBScript expression.

Hi,

managed to get what I want more or less. I tried like that:

search for (^.*)
using regexp
replacing with $1 "and my adding"

I think there was a problem if there are CRs in the comment field, and/or a ! in the end of the comment..

it worked for now, but if anybody can provide a better/more stable solution, I'll change it for future use.

You could use your Replace with string, but here is another one if you want to append a new line on the begin of newly added string only if old comment is non-empty:
Replace with:

Code: Select all

IIf(Len("$&") > 0, "$&" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine, "") & "and my adding"
VBScript expression: checked

By the way, it doesn't matter if ! is on the end of comment.

Remember Playback Position ??


One of the facilities in iTunes not in MM is to set a track to "Remember Playback Position", meaning to restart where you left off.

On my iPod, this is very useful for audiobooks, long radio recordings, podcasts, etc..

In MM, this can be only done by setting the genre to audiobook. Better than nothing, but I would really like to use more than one genre for this - it would make it easier to find what I'm looking for on my iPod.

Is there some way to use RegExp to set the right bit for the iPod in any genre??

Thanks,

hmm I'm a iPod user but not sure if I understand what you mean. iPod can't handle multi genre (like MM) so you must have audiobook as first genre and when check "Use only the first Genre when multi Genre exist" in device profile (sync).

If you are a Gold user you can setup your filters to enable bookmarking no matter the file type or genre. I am not sure if it is possible to use bookmarking if you are not a Gold user or if it is possible to enable/disable bookmarking on individual file types other than Audiobooks.

Open iTunes, select any track. Right mouse and select "get info", select the "options" tab. One of the binary choices (on or off) is "remember playback position". (Note that this works with any genre setting).

This means that if you listen to 1/3, or 1/2 of the track on your iPod, turn off your iPod, or select a different track, when you select and play this track again the iPod will start at the same position you stopped last time. This has many uses, but think of listening to a one hour podcast that is interrupted, and you stop your iPod. When you come back the next hour/day/week, it automatically restarts where it stopped. Very useful. This feature is turned on on the iPod only when you set "audiobook" as your genre in MediaMonkey. And only for this genre, instead of setting a switch that works with any genre.

If you are a Gold user you can setup your filters to enable bookmarking no matter the file type or genre. I am not sure if it is possible to use bookmarking if you are not a Gold user or if it is possible to enable/disable bookmarking on individual file types other than Audiobooks.
Well, I am a gold user, but I'm not sure if this is relevant. I'm not asking about restarting when playing a track using the MediaMonkey player. I'm asking about playback on my iPod (as above).

If bookmarking can effect playback on my iPod, I live to learn - please let me know.

So... what I'm really looking for is a way to use RegExp to set the same bit that "remember playback position" does with iTunes.

thanks,

OK, now I understand what u mean :)
Sry to say but I'm 100% sure that this can't be fixed with any MM script. This is a specific iTunes/iPod solution similar to the odd way how iPod handle compilations using an extended tags (ITUNESCOMPILATION). MM (incl. this script) can only modify standard tags plus extended tags added by MM like CustomX. I'm using Sharepod to fix the compilations problem. There could be work around for this problem, here is one site from google.

The script author is not a iPod user so to avoid getting O.T. please use this topic Unofficial but very helpful iPod/iTunes/MediaMonkey Hints

Hi,

it's a bit off topic also, but recently I got that strange behaviour of MM:

When I skip through a playlist listening to the titles in there (to sort them out and/or rearrange) MM remembers each position where I left the song and when I get back it continues where I stopped listening. (no matter if I pause, stop, or just skip to another song)

It would be nice to be able to do that on purpose, but my MM is doing that now for EVERY song. And I dont know how to get rid of that bug/feature again?!

Any ideas?

Hello.

I' d like to add a custom preset to manage one of the custom field but i can't figure out how i can do it so any help will be appreciated :)

This is the situation:

I have a quite large collection of songs (more then 100gb) and i have organized it to use "Surname, Name" in Artist field. I see that for some scripts using Last.fm this is a problem due some limitation when querying this site.

That's how i want to use a custom preset:

i'd like to Replace one custom field (let's say "Alternative Sort" field) with current value from "Artist" field and i want to swap "Surname, Name" to "Name Surname" (removing ",") but only if there is a "," in the source field (i hope i can limit problematic situation with group names like "Pink Floyd" that, of course, i dont' want to swap)

Of course i can do it partially using a combination of the default presets and choosing manually if i need to run them but i'd like to use only 1 preset to avoid errors.

Any suggestion how can handle this need with only 1 preset and using "if" statements?

Thank you very much for your answers.

Ciao

Andrea

You want to modify two fields in same time using one preset which is not currently possible. However, you could get what you want using two existing presets:
1. Copy the Date when the file is last modified to the Date added field - just change fields with Into and From dropdown lists;
2. Swap the last and the first name of the Artist with removed ", ".
