[SOLVED] Issues with slashes "/" in metadata

Post by moltes » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:24 pm

Hi,
I noticed that when I retrieve metadata from a database (freeDB, MusicBrainz, ...) and when there is a slash "/" in the track title, Xrecode interprets the slash as a line break and writes the rest of title in the Artist input. It's quite annoying ;)
(Xrecode3 1.73)

If it's from a CD, please send me the CD Id (shown at the bottom of the "Retrieve Metadata" window, looks like 840b0609 9 150 20115 41400 63600 83860 1114.....). If just files, please upload them to https://wetransfer.com and send me the link to xrecode@gmail.com.

It also seems that some hyphens "-" are converted to slashes "/" while retrieving from databases.
For example : Fu-Gee-La becomes Fu/Gee-La

Please try the latest beta version - viewtopic.php?f=16&t=40
I fixed the handling of hyphens, but / is used as a separator, i.e. format is Artist / Title.

Hi,
The hyphens problem seems to be fixed but the salshes problem still persists (I mean in the title of the track).
I know this is not a big issue but is still annoying when many tracks do have a slash in their titles.
Please see the screenshot - https://ibb.co/g31kM6
