ExtractFields v0.1.4 [MM2+3]

Postby Steegy » Tue Jun 13, 2006 2:13 pm

:: ExtractFields


Description:

The ExtractFields script lets you change tags/fields using the contents of the existing tags.

Typically, this script is used to split titles received from FreeDB (when they contain Title - Artist), to copy or swap fields, to remove leading track numbers, ...

Image

You can use different "entry lines". Each entry line gets/puts it's information from/in the specified information field (chosen from the dropdown list). The mask that you specify will make sure that the chosen information field gets parsed and the other fields are filled with the info, or that the chosen information field will be filled like specified in the mask.

This script is generally applicable and can be used to replace scripts like:
- SwapArtistTitle
- SwitchOrCopyFields
- Split Artist Title
and maybe other.

The script can be accessed through menu Tools > Scripts > "Extract Fields...", or from the button added to the standard toolbar.
The default shortcut key is Ctrl+Alt+X

When the "Extract Fields" button is clicked, the selected songs *at that moment* are used (not the songs that were selected before you opened the form). So you can still change the songs selection while the form is open.

The "USER DEFAULTS" section on top of the script contains default values that are used when the script starts. You can change this yourself.
Make sure that def_TagField contains a value mentioned in SongDataFields (bottom of the script), and that def_TagMask is a mask that can contain variables mentioned in CommonTags (bottom of the script).

The script needs MediaMonkey version 2.5.3 or above.


Installing manually:

The script below is an auto-script. The Faq "How do I install scripts?" http://faq.mediamonkey.com/index.php?ac ... artlang=en explains how to install it.
Quicky: Copy the code below to a plain text file (e.g. using NotePad) and save it as ExtractFields.vbs. Put that file in MediaMonkey's Scripts\Auto folder and (re)start MediaMonkey.


The script consists of 1 standalone script file ("ExtractFields.vbs")

ExtractFields.vbs (for the Scripts\Auto folder)
Code: Select all

Information:

By default, the script starts with a mask that works the same way as the script "Split Artist Title" works. (to split "Artist - Title" titles received from FreeDB).

Image

You can specify the number of "entry lines" you want to display. Each entry line is used to parse the track information field (from the dropdown) and save the matching information to other (or even the same) track information fields (from the mask). Each entry line can be enabled.

When you are using more than one entry line, the parsing can happen in two ways:
- Serial: each entry line is parsed after each other, so the second line parses the song that has already been changed by the first line.
- Parallel: each entry line parses with the same beginning information, so it doesn't depend on the previous entry lines.


Example 1: Serial vs. Parallel

Title = My Song Title
ArtistName = My Artist Name

entry line 1: On Title With mask <Artist>
entry line 2: On ArtistName With mask <Title>

Serial:
- entry line 1 copies the contents of (the previous = original) Title "My Song Title" to ArtistName
- entry line 2 copies the contents of (the previous = already changed) ArtistName "My Song Title" to Title
---> Title = My Song Title
---> ArtistName = My Song Title


Parallel:
- entry line 1 copies the contents of (the original) Title "My Song Title" to Artist(Name)
- entry line 2 copies the contents of (the original) ArtistName "My Artist Name" to Title
---> Title = My Artist Name
---> ArtistName = My Song Title


--> So the "parallel" way lets you e.g. easily switch fields (as replacement of the SwapArtistTitle and SwitchOrCopyFields (in "switch" mode) scripts).
With only the one line like this, the script acts as the SwitchOrCopyFields script (in "copy" mode).


Example 2: Remove leading text

If you have a Title like "DragonMegaStore @ MyTitle" and want to change it to "MyTitle", then use one entry line:
entry line 1: On Title With mask <Skip> @ <Title>

Is there any way, using this script, to copy data from any field TO the Publisher field? It's easy enough to use the Publisher field as a source, but if I understand correctly, it's currently not possible to use it as a mask?

Is there some other method or script that will help with copying data to the Publisher field? I have ~10,000 tracks to import into Traktor DJ 3, but Traktor doesn't recognise many of the fields used within MM. Publisher (Label) is one of the fields that is recognised by both, and I was hoping to make use of it to carry Album Artist names.

Obviously, I'm hoping to not do this manually ... :(

(Traktor has many deficiencies, tagging and file support being major ones, but it's audio quality - especially with tempo adjustment - is amazing.)

The default masks don't seem to support this indeed.
Support for all possible MM fields is the todo for this script.
The only thing I'm not sure of is if the devs will extend the masks to support all fields. If not, then no pain; the script will do it by itself then.

In the meantime, you can use my SwitchOrCopyFields script from http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7920

This script can copy or switch any available taggable field to another.

On one of my PCs I use this script and it works perfect. But: I just tried it on my laptop, and I get an Error Message. I have the german version, and try to translate it:
"Error #438 - Runtime error in Microsoft VBScript
This Object does not support this propertiy or method.: 'SDB.Tools.Mask2UFText'
File: "MyPath\ExtractFields.vbs", line: 130, Column: 4 "

As somebody an idea?

This is probably because you're other machine does not have the latest version of MM installed.

Small question...

Postby MCSmarties » Tue Aug 08, 2006 8:41 am

Steegy: How do I refer to the SongData objects that are not part of the specified "masks"?

I see that you referenced a lot of objects in the script but I don't know how to "call" them.

For example, if I wanted to switch "Year" and "Original Year", how do I do that?
I guess I need to run in "parallel" mode and specify

[enabled] Source field Year -> Mask <?????>
[enabled] Source field Original Year -> Mask <Year>

Using your older SwitchOrCopyFields script works for this since I can pick "Original Year" from the drop-down list,
but since you say this script is deprecated I'd rather use ExtractFields for everything.

Thanks!

I am trying to copy "ArtistName" into "AlbumArtist" where "AlbumArtist" is missing. This function works for me using this script when I copy other fields into "AlbumArtist", but for whatever reason does not seem to work specifically for "ArtistName".

Example:
ArtistName = "My Artist Name"
AlbumArtist = " "

entry line 1: On "Artist" With mask "<AlbumArtist>"

Serial:
> entry line 1 should copy the contents of (the previous = original) ArtistName "My Artist Name" to "AlbumArtist

My results:
The scripts acts as if a change is made, and tags are even written. However, no changes are made. The end result is just as I started.
ArtistName = "My Artist Name"
AlbumArtist = " "

Again, I can use this same script to copy other fields into "AlbumArtist", but it does not work for me with "ArtistName".

Also, I do realize that there are other scripts I could use for this same functionality, but I am trying to avoid a proliferation of Scripts, and stick with the most flexible versions.

Anyone else with this same problem?

Do you have the album value filled in on these tracks?

Yes, Album is filled. I am just trying to copy Artist into AlbumArtist where AlbumArtist is missing.

It is odd, I can copy other <Masks> into AlbumArtist, but not Artist?

I can do it on a one-by-one basis, but that gets tedious very quickly.

could Comment be added as a mask?

Postby TequilaMitch » Fri Sep 15, 2006 9:47 pm

I want to copy my Mood and Occasion data to the Comment field, but "<Comment>" isn't one of the masks. Could this be easily added?

Also, is there a way to 'append' to the Comment field, instead of overwriting? I want to copy both the Mood and Occasion to the Comment field, not just one or the other. But with the script above, I don't think I could do that even if the <Comment> mask existed. First i'd copy the Mood into Comments, but then if I tried to copy Occasion into to Comments it would overwrite the Mood that I just copied there.

Any ideas?
