[SOLVED] Trim filenames

I use beet to organize my music collection, and am currently facing some issues. I’m trying to backup a part of my library to the cloud, and there are filename length restrictions for that (filename can’t be larger than 250 bytes). How do I instruct beet to rename all files (trim filenames) with filenames larger than 80 characters or so (without changing the title of the music file)? Thanks.

Hi! There is a max_filename_length config option. (You can then use beet move to update your filenames.)

Thanks, that works!
