I have some MP3s where the metadata is truncated on the first “umlaut” (German letters like ä or ü).
I have uploaded an example MP3 file here. When I import this into beets via
beet -A tillmann_pruefer.mp3 I end up with a entry in beets’ database like this:
album: DIE ZEIT albumartists: art: False artist: Von Tillmann Pr artists: bitdepth: 0 bitrate: 96000 channels: 1 date: 2021-01-01 format: MP3 genre: Speech genres: Speech length: 235.47841666666667 mb_albumartistids: mb_artistids: samplerate: 44100 title: Stell dir vor, ich w year: 2021
Note, the artist is “Von Tillmann Pr”, but it should be "Von Tillmann Prüfer". Same problem with the title: It reads “Stell dir vor, ich w”, but it should be “Stell dir vor, ich würde Oktoba heißen”.
I have other tracks from other sources, which contain “umlaute” and import fine.
Any idea why this doesn’t work here and how I can fix it?
