I installed MusicBee earlier today for the first time in quite some time, after trying a different player. Said player was insufficient though, so I'd like to get back to using MusicBee again.
I thought I had everything set up correctly, but MusicBee does not rename things automatically. I have an "incoming" folder which is monitored and that I add new stuff to, and I then want MusicBee to renames the files/folders according to this:
<album artist>\<album>\<disc-track#> - <title>
...plus move the album to my library location. But in doing so, the renaming does not seem to work, at least not the <album> folder. I'm pretty sure that it takes care of <disc-track#> - <title> correctly (but would need to check again). It also puts it under the right artist in my library so that seem to be working.
How do I set this up correctly? Do I have to tick the "auto-organize media library" in order to accomplish what I want to accomplish? The problem there is that I only want it to auto-organize the files that goes to my media library folder and not my entire hard drive - as far as I can tell it is not possible to put a path there, only a drive letter (?).
Another thing I want MusicBee to do is to automatically rename files and in general change files according to what I do in the main view. So if I clean things up a bit (spelling errors, whatnot), I want the folders and file names to automatically reflect what I just did. For this I would assume I have to have the "auto-organize library" ticked?
Any tips on how to do this properly greatly appreciated. I had it set up this way before but I don't remember exactly how I did it.
I made a suggestion to add an option like this, I hope someone can do it.
