OK One last quickie, How to Shorten Various Artists to VA?

Using this:

$if2($if($eq($len(%musicbrainz_albumid%),0),No MBID/$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%),)
,$if($eq(%releasetype%,album; soundtrack),Soundtracks/,)
,$if($and($or($eq(%releasetype%,album; compilation),$or($eq(%releasetype%,album),$eq(%releasetype%,compilation))),$eq(%albumartist%,Various Artists)),Compilations/,)
,$if($in(%album%,Promo Only),Promo Only/,)
,$if($and($lt($matchedtracks(),%totaltracks%),$lt($matchedtracks(),60)),Incomplete Releases/$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%),$if2(Artists/$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%))))/
$replace($replace($rreplace($if($not($inmulti(%releasetype%,soundtrack)),%albumartist%-)%album%,[ :?"<>|], -),?,), ,* )

Do you want to make that change in the tags or in the filename? If tags, there’s a separate option for that under Metadata. You will probably need to update this script at the same time to set “Compilations” based on VA instead of Various Artists.

I just want them changed in the folder name.

I think what you need to do in that case is change %albumartist% in the last line to $if($eq(%albumartist%,Various Artists),VA,%albumartist%).


Thanks @psychoadept It appears to work :smile:
