you can try this:

Code: Select all

{ext == 'mp3' ? 'MP3' : 'FLAC'}/{any{genre}{media.genre}{'Unknown genre'}}/{artist} - {t}
or

Code: Select all

{ext == 'mp3' ? 'MP3' : 'FLAC'}/{any{media.genre}{'Unknown genre'}}/{media.Performer} - {media.title}

Hi thanks for replying so quick
both code is so close to what i want.
so my original setup up is just all my mp3 in 1 single folder and flac in another folder.
is there a way FB can auto sort it into genre type just like the movie format?

eg. folder MP3\auto sort genre folder\artist - title
MP3\rap\B.I.G - victory

I recommend processing files with MusicBrainz Picard first if they aren't properly tagged already.

Once files are tagged, you can easily process them with FileBot and move/rename them according to any of the available ID3 Tags.

hi i got musicbrainz already, about 98-99% of the files are tag i can make playlist out of them but would take too long to move the files around manually. Since Filebot worked so well for my movie collection, i though maybe it does wonder on my music collection as well, like movies filebot categorize into movie folder then by different genre and filename. Was wondering if it can do that to my music as well.

1.
Yes, as long as that information can be read from the ID3 tags, I see no reason why it wouldn't work out of the box.

@see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4285


2.
Is there any specific problem you're struggling with?

if you tried my formats you would see it does what you want ;)

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2072

if file already has the info use:

Code: Select all

{ext == 'mp3' ? 'MP3' : 'FLAC'}/{any{media.genre}{'Unknown genre'}}/{media.Performer} - {media.title}
else:

Code: Select all

{ext == 'mp3' ? 'MP3' : 'FLAC'}/{any{genre}{media.genre}{'Unknown genre'}}/{artist} - {t}
if mp3 file = MP3/rap/B.I.G - victory
else = FLAC/rap/B.I.G - victory
no genre found = MP3/Unknown genre/B.I.G - victory
