Hello, in many of my old mp3 files I have some obscure tags from programms I used in the past. So I want to remove them with the --from-scratch option from the import command. I have already imported them into my library, so I need to use the -L option for the import command. As the problem only occurs in my old mp3 files, I only want to retag these from scratch, and not my newer flac files, because they have some custom tags I dont want to loose…
But the only query which seems to be working on the beet import -L command is album.
I tried this command:
beet import -L “format:MP3” --from-scratch
but it does nothing. The query is working fine in beet stats.
Is this normal that I just can use the album keyword?
If not, how do I need to modify my command to just tag the mp3 files?
I also tried this:
beet import -L “album::.*” format:MP3 --from-scratch
but that does nothing too.
