Organize lyrics (lrc) files

Post by cuneglas » 10 Jun 2018, 06:05

Hi,

Thanks for your incredible work. FileBot has been a great work helper.

My music library has tons of lrc files, unfortunately FileBot doesn't process them. Is it possible to FileBot process them in the same way it processes subtitles files? Giving them the same name as the correspondent music?

Thanks a lot,

Cheers

What are lrc files? How would you expect them to be processed? Can you give me a few example files and use cases and maybe a few screenshots to illustrated the problem?

A lrc file is a file with the synchronized song lyrics.

Basically you have text-base file with the following text example

Code: Select all

[00:20.82]Oh yeah, what we're living in (let me tell ya)
[00:27.49]It's a wonder man can eat at all
[00:30.33]When things are big that should be small
[00:32.97]Who can tell what magic spells we'll be doing for us
[00:38.08]And I'm giving all my love to this world
[00:41.11]Only to be told
[00:43.41]I can't see
[00:44.87]I can't breathe
[00:46.26]No more will we be
I want this files to be used in Plex, and they only have to have the same name as the correspondent song. i.e.:

Code: Select all

01 music_name.mp3
01 music_name.lrc
I'm using following command to organize my music

Code: Select all

filebot -rename "original_folder" -r --output "destination_folder" --format "{n.upperInitial()}/{album.upperInitial()} ({y})/{media.PartPosition!=null ? media.PartPosition+'.' : ''}{pi.pad(2)!=null ? pi.pad(2)+'.' : ''} {t.upperInitial()}" --log-file "log_file" --db ID3
Unfortunately the lrc files are left behind.

What I would like do is to get the same name to both files. If the lrc file exists, it would be processed with same name of the correspondent audio file.

What do you need more?

Thanks for your help and for your awesome work.

Cheers

I see. This kind of use case is currently not supported for audio files. I'm currently preoccupied with other tasks though. Maybe in the future.
