So I managed to get my audiobooks tagged and imported but it wasn’t easy.
The first thing I noticed is that audiobooks import with the
other albumtype. My custom path was set to albumtype:audiobook: Audiobooks/$artist/$album/$track $title so they imported under $artist and not the Audiobooks subfolder. So here’s where I used
beet move Tolkien -d Audiobooks/ to move them all under my desired folder. I also used
beet modify Tolkien albumtype=audiobook so a
beet update wouldn’t reorganize them out.
So far, so good but I ran into one audiobook that refused to move sensibly, an audiobook on yoga breathing.
beet move Freeman -d /music/Audiobooks/ -p results in
/music/Audiobooks/Richard Freeman/15 Yoga Breathing Guided Instructions on the Art of Pranayama.mp3 -> /music/Audiobooks/Audiobooks/Richard Freeman/15 Yoga Breathing Guided Instructions on the Art of Pranayama.mp3
refusing to both categorize under its modified albumtype (audiobooks) and doubling its Audiobooks subfolder.
Also strangely: just setting a subpath of Audiobooks/ was enough the first time through but has since stopped working complaining of
error: no such directory: b'/Audiobooks'.
What’s going on here?
