Thanks a lot, that worked like a charm.
Just reporting back if others seek solutions:
av_bitrate calculated per album with the inline plugin.
I do this to be able to parse the
av_bitrate in my path like this:
/Albums/Common/The People (2007) (MP3 177)
With the following command I can filter all MP3’s with (in this case) a average bitrate lower than 193 Kbps.
beet ls -a format:MP3 av_bitrate:..193 -f "\$av_bitrate \$path"
I add the
-f "\$av_bitrate \$path" to print the
av_bitrate and the path in the terminal output. Like this:
128 /Volumes/Tunez/Albums/Aphex Twin/…I Care Because You Do (1995) (MP3 128)
192 /Volumes/Tunez/Albums/Fiona Apple/Extraordinary Machine (2005) (Jon Brion-produced leak 2005) (MP3 192)
One thing that I didn’t succeed in is to print the output like this which would have been nicer:
128 - Aphex Twin - …I Care Because You Do (1995)
192 - Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine (2005)
But that might require black belt formatting. Any ideas are welcome.
