Which flags can I use in the external compression scheme “User Defined MP3 Encoder”?…For versions from 1.0 beta 2 on (some placeholders might only be available in the latest version!)%source% – Source filename%dest% – Destination filename%original% – Original filename (without temporary renaming)%ishigh%…%ishigh% – Text “…” only when “High quality” selected%islow%…%islow% -Text “…” only when “Low quality” selected%haslyrics%…%haslyrics% – Text “…” only when lyrics exist%hascover%…%hascover% – Text “…” only when storing cd cover is enabled and cover exists%crcenabled%…%crcenabled% – Text “…” only when “CRC checksum” selected%title% – Track title%genre% – MP3 music genre%year% – Year%cddbid% – freedb ID%artist% – Track artist%lyrics% – Lyrics%lyricsfile% – Filename of lyrics text file (ANSI)%bitrate% – Bitrate (“32″..”320″)%comment% – Comment (as selected in EAC)%tracknr% – Track number (same as %tracknr2%)%tracknr1% – Track number (at least 1 digit)%tracknr2% – Track number (at least 2 digits)%tracknr3% – Track number (at least 3 digits)%totalcds% – Total number of CDs in the given CD set%cdnumber% – Number of the CD%composer% – Track performer%trackcrc% – CRC of extracted track%coverfile% – Filename of CD cover image%numtracks% – Number of tracks on album%albumtitle% – CD title%albumartist% – CD artist%albumcomposer% – CD composer%albuminterpret% – CD performer%% – The ‘%’ character
Apologies - the version of EAC I am trying to configure is 1.00 beta 3. Would this apply to the FLAC parameters as well?
Is there an updated readme?
So %A = %artist%C = %Composer%N = %Track Number%T = %Track
But what does %I relate to? - ID3 type originally but what is the equivalent?
%i – Filename of CD cover image…%coverfile% – Filename of CD cover image
Thanks - yes I will continue to root around. The problem with the FAQ is that it just lists the new parameters whereas I (and perhaps others) require a 'Rosetta stone' table giving the old parameters and their new equivalents...
Well I have actually tried cutting and pasting examples from the FAQ and I am still getting 'invalid filename"!
Without basic information such as the command line and placeholders that you used, no one can really guess at this.
%I\%A\%C\%N-%T in old money should equate to %coverfile%\%artist%\%crcenabled%\%tracknr%-%title% in new...Doesn't work of course.
I assume that's because you didn't change "Additional command line options" too.
so what?EAC > Compression Options...
I didn't think that the original %C should be translated to either %composer% or %crcenabled% - I'm fairly certain it should be translated to %albumtitle%

The trick is to look at the key in the dialog for the old version of EAC against the new.
I hope I can be forgiven in light of its illogicality!
According to the FAQ, 1.0b2 can parse %tracknr% in the command-line but not when naming files, meaning that %tracknr2% would have to be used in the latter context; is this indeed the case?
