All I want to get in the database is artist and title. Now, the nfo scraper will pick it up the filename is in the format Artist - title.ext . But I have my music videos in a folder named after artist, and the filename just the song title, i.e.
There's 2 reasons for this, both due to the length of the filename.
1. My music videos are stored on the xbox hard drive.
2. I want to see the song title on the screen, not scrolling.
(plus I have 1000+ clips)
Take the example
Queens Of The Stone Age - Everybody Knows That You're Insane
Now that's a long title, both to display on the screen and get around the fatx char limit.
(I'm only mentioning all this because I think it might be a useful feature/change for other users in the same boat).
So, I tried to adjust the regexp in the musicvideos.xml scraper. As all of my music videos are in artist\title , and I only care about these 2 fields, I thought the following would work, but no go:
<RegExp input="$$1" output="<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><musicvideo><artist>\1</artist><title>\2</title><year>\3</year></musicvideo>" dest="3">
I assumed this would give me any sequence of characters followed by a \ then any other sequence of characters, but it doesn't pick up anything.
So, does anyone know:
1. If what I want to do will work?
2. The syntax of the regexp?
