AtomicParsley Variants

The options related to AtomicParsley are provided to support variations in different versions that emerged after primary development ceased at version 0.9.0.

Content Encoding

The get_iplayer metadata is assumed to be encoded as UTF-8 and is then re-encoded as necessary for the different tagging applications. This doesn't always hold true, so substitution characters may sometimes appear in the tags, particularly lyrics or longDescription.

Tag Scheme

The table below describes the scheme used to convert get_iplayer metadata into tags for downloaded programmes. The tag names were selected to match AtomicParsley parameter names. Each tag is mapped, where possible, to the corresponding get_iplayer substitution parameter, AtomicParsley arg, MP4 atom, id3v2 param, and ID3 frame. The list of iTunes fields indicate where each tag will appear in the iTunes Get Info dialog. Conversion rules specific to particular fields are indicated in the footnotes. If you wish to experiment with variations, the conversion of get_iplayer metadata to tag values is encapsulated in the Tagger::tags_from_metadata subroutine.
