things become clearer.
Yes, it has a year tag with 1941.
I was blind and didn't saw that I messed up my library paths.
beet info shows the wrong path:
~/Musik instead of
I only saw this now.
My config is ok AFAICS:
$ beet config
command: oggenc -q 6 $source -o $dest
mp3: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -aq 2 $dest
command: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec libfaac -aq 100 $dest
flac: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec flac $dest
command: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec alac $dest
wma: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec wmav2 -vn $dest
ogg: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec libvorbis -aq 3 $dest
opus: ffmpeg -i $source -y -vn -acodec libopus -ab 96k $dest
plugins: play edit convert export mbcollection mbsubmit info
albumtype:audiobook: Audiobooks/$album/$track $title
separators: [',', ': ']
itemfields: track title artist album
albumfields: album albumartist
ignore_fields: id path
To answer the second question:
(py3) juh@sokrates:~$ beet -v update /home/juh/Musik/Aníbal\ Troilo/Tinta\ Roja/02\ Malena\ \(canta\ Fiorentino\).flac
user configuration: /home/juh/.config/beets/config.yaml
data directory: /home/juh/.config/beets
Sending event: pluginload
library database: /home/juh/beetdata/musiclibrary.db
library directory: /home/juh/beet
Sending event: library_opened
skipping /home/juh/Musik/Aníbal Troilo/Tinta Roja/02 Malena (canta Fiorentino).flac because mtime is up to date (1492446577.0)
Sending event: cli_exit
Eventually, I copied the file to the Musik-folder, because this is the location for my dj files. I did this with
beet move -c -d.
I guess that beet now thinks the file has to be in this folder. My understanding was that it only copied the file and recorded this in the database as a convert or export command. But I fear that beet now treats the copied file as the canonical file of its library.
This behaviour seems consistent to me if I had moved a file into another folder. But after a copy command I would think that beet signals to me that there is a duplicate in the library and ask which one it should treat as the canonical file defaulting to the file in the configured library folder.
So what is the best way to skip all files in
~/Musik and update the database from the files in
~/beet which were altered by Picard.
Thanks a lot for your help.
