Tag from Filename - Date Format [#14601]

Post by waltp » Wed Dec 13, 2017 5:53 pm

I have thousands of files of Old Radio programs, each filename in the format:
YY-MM-DD Ep# Title

When tagging, MMonkey hiccups on dates where both MM and DD are less than 13 (like 44-01-03), converting the date to Mar 1, 44 instead of Jan 3, 44. Other dates that aren't "ambiguous" (44-05-15 for example) work fine. Is there any way to tell MM what format to use? Or better yet, use the data exactly as is with no conversion at all?

Hi,
thanks for reporting.

You seem to be right that using 'yy-dd-mm' looks like a bug,
to be solved/fixed as http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view. ... 601#c49472

I just updated to the latest MM.
Wow! I expected to have to retag all the files, but the fix seems to be simply a display fix. Looking good!
