Hi. I’m new at beets and in the process of setting up my config file etc etc. I’m also doing testing to make sure that the behavior is what I expect. When I’m done, I’ll let beet loos on my full collection.
I noticed a funny thing today. I have a sample file that I use to test my new tags. It has no tags embedded in the file. I know this because I did a ffprobe of the file and see no tag info.
I run a import:
beet import -s ~/Downloads/myfile_something_snow_something.mp3
All works fine. I look at the tag info:
beet edit --all snow
Including the lyrics that I now have, there is 283 lines of tags…
I double check this again with ffprobe and I can see all the tag info is there.
This is all wonderful, great and as expected.
I can re-import the same file, the same process runs, and I get told that I have a duplicate, and I remove the old file.
Then, I did a:
beet update -p
Beet tells me:
initial_key: C ->
bpm: 155.558242798 ->
I do not understand why? I go from no tag info, to all, then immediately doing a update, 2 fields gets blanked out.
Can someone explain to me the behavior?
I run beet 1.4.5
