The beets-yearfixer plugin finds the
original_year for each of your songs by querying the MusicBrainz database and finding the first release date that is associated with it. If the MB database query is unsuccessful, it will then use the other songs in the same album as reference and calculate the mean
original_year between them. If this does not yield any results then the same will be done for all songs of the artist. For the
year attribute the same procedure will be used except that the MB database is not queried.
The plugin can be installed via:
$pip install beets-yearfixer
Activate the plugin in your configuration file by adding
yearfixer to the plugins section:
Invoke the plugin as:
$ beet yearfixer [options] [QUERY...]
The following command line options are available:
--force [-f]: Force setting the values on items even if the value has been previously set.
--version [-v]: Display the version number of the plugin. Useful when you need to report some issue and you have to state the version of the plugin you are using.
force options can also be set through the configuration like this:
