Hi, first of all, thanks for the awesome program .
I’ve got a program that automatically fetches music from internet, around 1000 songs each day, so manually tagging all of them is not doable on a daily basis.
Therefore I thought that I could do an automatic first import with the quiet flag followed by an no autotagged of the skipped elements.
But I also want the benefits of the auto tagger for metadata and duplication removal. So I was wondering if there was a way to run the auto tagger afterwards on an as-is imported item.
As a testcase, I’ve used the
edit plugin to import a song with the following data:
- artist: The.Pogues
- title: the iris rover
I tried using
beet import -L artist:The.Pogues"
but nothing happened, so I went to the directory where the file was saved…/Non-Album/The.Pogues
and runbeet import .`, it correctly used the autotagger, but now I’ve got two database entries for the same song:
- The Pogues - - The Irish Rover
- The.Pogues - - the iris rover
Is there a way to fix the metadata of the item without duplicating it?
Or maybe I’m trying to use beets in a way it’s not intended to. If it’s the case, do you know how can I achieve what I want?
Thank you so much
