Full Version: Filename to Title
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Came across the following tag-formatting in the user guide:

Title.displayFormat={$title^$date^ [^]}

Is it possible to get the filename there? Is there a tag with the filename?

Just want to see the filename in some cases. BubbleUPnP hides the filename when there is a title.

Thanks, Hans
It is MinimServer (not BubbleUPnP) that is "hiding" the filename when there is a title. This is because MinimServer uses the filename as the Title value if there is no Title tag. If there is a Title tag, MinimServer ignores the filename.

Can you say more about the "some cases" where you want to see a filename?
Thousands of old recordings (flac) have specific information in the filename (date, time, place etc.) I've put some further comments in the title-tag, because then it is also immediately visible in windows explorer main window. In windows it works perfect. But in BubbleUPnP I miss the information in the filename when there are comments in de title.

I tried to mass-copy the filenames to the title, but did not find a quick way in MusiCHI tagger. Furthermore combining the title and filename in Minimserver is more elegant.

You can use Mp3tag to mass copy file names to titles and then to carry out common edits to the titles (e.g. replacing '_' with ' ').
See this post for a solution that does not require retagging your files.
Thanks. I'll see what I can do with these solutions.
