error at remap-album (maybe at remap-artist too)

example:
"Dark Side Of The Moon (Experince Edition)" is remaped to "Dark Side Of The Moon"
remap is ok; the correct entry is displayed.

original album "Dark Side Of The Moon" is not remaped. in remap_album.txt however "Dark Side Of The Moon" (as remaped entry) is found and now the following entry is taken as "remap". but this is the next album to be remaped. in my case "Live At Montreux 1991 (Collectors' Edition)

only the 1st entry may be searched for when comparing (never the 2nd entry)

extract from my remap_album.txt (sorry, can't upload a picture)
Dark Side Of The Moon (Experince Edition)
Dark Side Of The Moon
Live At Montreux 1991 (Collectors' Edition)
Live At Montreux 1991

please correct - thanks

General - (fb2k) / Re: Sort Playlist by Release Date via Edit -> Sort By...
Last post by anamorphic -
Thank you anamorphic, doing that'll create an option to select from Sort as "Edit -> Sort -> Sort by date (desc)". When I apply this option to a playlist the tracks are sorted by date but not accurately. Could this be from me using %date% formatted as "yyyy-mm-dd"?

Could be. Change it to include month and day -

Code: [Select]
date (desc)=$sub(9999,$year(%date%))-$sub(99,$month(%date%))-$sub(99,$day_of_month(%date%))

Note you can add secondary fields to sort by, after date -

Code: [Select]
date (desc)=$sub(9999,$year(%date%))-$sub(99,$month(%date%))-$sub(99,$day_of_month(%date%))|$stripprefix(%album artist%)|$stripprefix(%album%)|%discnumber%|%tracknumber%|$stripprefix(%title%)

(Using $stripprefix excludes prefixes to sort other fields alphabetically)

Also, is there a way to force this option for playlists? Either by creating an autoplaylist or applying the custom sort option?

Sure. Default playlist sorting is done by the library viewer. So it depends, which one you are using?

For auto-playlists, enter your above default sort pattern in Preferences > Shell Intergration > 'Sort incoming files by'. (I think this works as a default for auto-playlists? And without needing to specify SORT in the Library > Search)

For library selection playlists, find the default sort option in Preferences and enter your sort pattern as above (again no need for "date (desc)=" at the beginning) -

Facets = Preferences > Media Library > Facets > 'Default sort order'

Columns UI Filters = Preferences >Display > Columns UI > Filters > Behavior tab > 'Sort tracks added...'

Album List is different, default playlist sorting is the view pattern. There is no clean way to sort descending (by default) without displaying the subtracted dates.

If you really want to default sort by descending dates, I recommend not using Album List. ;) If you want a better tree library I would replace it in your layout with Spider Monkey Panel + Library Tree script, which has far more options. (I can add more detail if needed...)

Cheers

As already mentioned, downloading is done outside foo_youtube (therefore it does not have much to do with youtube-dl now being found in foo_youtube). Hope I find some time the next days to post a short step-by-step tutorial how to download with youtube-dl out of foobar (probably next weekend).

Oki, Great, looking forward to it.

There's a solution.

Select items that have the same duplicates in values.
Open Properties windows (Alt+Enter)
Right-click a field and then select "Automatically fill values..."
Change source to "Other..." and type "%title%"
In the Pattern input box use "%title%"
Save changes.

Right-click on the youtube-dl line in 'Third-party Binaries' should give the possibility to select 'External', then in my case windows explorer is opening, which allows to navigate to your youtube-dl.exe to set the path.

Awesome, done. What is next step in the setup to get it to download the files and save them on my computer?
