Bug Reports / Re: multiple file corruption issue
Last post by mrbenn on Today at 10:56:19 PM   |  Started by mrbenn
Yes, all of the files that are now suspect were in a batch of about 80k files total changing any variation of "various artists" to "VA" (my preference) - this batch was over maybe 6 or 8 actions of searching, selecting, making change in vertical tag editor, click save.

I also did another batch yesterday using Regex Search and Replace (^[0]) on Track# to remove leading 0's yesterday that was closer to 150k tracks. I did notice a few odd files after that, but its after the above that I really noticed things going south.

Its definitely file corruption. It sounds the same in VLC via 2 different outputs.

Of all the files in the batch, only some (by far the minority) are affected. Some albums have one track corrupted, others have several. In one case an entire album was corrupted. The corruption amount varies wildly. The tags appear intact, but the album art is often missing or also corrupted. I have not re scanned the files yet.

I'm 100% sure they were fine beforehand, as I have either played it before or have gone to an older backup and the files sound as expected.

all .mp3, and my output settings are WASAPI and as far as I know are as vanilla as possible (i.e. I haven't changed them since installing MB)

The only program used to edit anything on the affected files is MB.

Thanks

It may not be the most elegant solution, but if your Now Playing screen is set to have the lyrics displayed in the right "Now Playing Sidebar," you can simply drag the border of this sidebar to the left until it takes up the entire screen.

The best solution might be dedicated karaoke software, though.

I am trying to figure out a way to display song lyrics synchronized full screen to use for singalongs.  Is there a way to do this?

You can use MiniLyrics, see here:-

"Glitchy playback" and "file corruption" are two different things.  I don't follow exactly what you're describing, but it sounds like you're saying this issue occurs AFTER you perform tag editing on a batch of files, presumably with MusicBee--is that correct?  Do the glitches happen on ALL of those files, or just some of them?  Are you sure that before you made the changes they played fine?  Afterwards, are the glitches audible on ANY player, or just MusicBee?

One of the last revisions/updates of Windows 10 caused audio issues for many folks that were resolved when they updated to the latest audio drivers provided by their device manufacturer.

What file format are we talking about--mp3, flac, all of them?  What output settings are you using?

I do all my batch tagging outside of MusicBee, but I have used 3.3+ since it was made available and never have had any file playback corruption/glitch issues.

Questions / Re: Custom Tags not Working for MP3 Files
Last post by UTSquishy on Today at 09:58:59 PM   |  Started by UTSquishy
My tag settings say: Save MP3 tags as: ID3v2.3 (also save ID3v1 tags is also checked)

I think I'm going to test using media type instead. I'll report back on what I do.

Questions / Re: Custom Tags not Working for MP3 Files
Last post by Bee-liever on Today at 09:35:34 PM   |  Started by UTSquishy
Both Systems are using the same version of MusicBee, one actually marks the MP3's using the ENCODER SETTINGS tag, and the other marks them with the ENCODERSETTINGS tag. Which is strange because all other filetypes just use the ENCODER SETTINGS tag.
Check your tag settings, the system writing ENCODERSETTINGS may be using APEv2 tags.

I suppose I could co-opt a different Tag altogether and just move the current ENCODER SETTINGS tag to that one, is there perhaps a different tag that would functionally work better? One that isn't used often but makes sense to co-opt, which isn't functionally different in mp3's like the one I happened to chose.
Media Type or File Type are rarely used these days. Most players read this info from the file header.

Bug Reports / multiple file corruption issue
Last post by mrbenn on Today at 09:03:09 PM   |  Started by mrbenn
Hi

I've started noticing a lot of glitchy playback over the last couple of days, and at first I put it down to the odd bad rip etc, but its now gotten bad enough I'm worried there is a serious bug in MB. (3.3)

The playback sounds either completely broken, or in some other cases like two tracks have been randomly cut and pasted together.

I've been doing a lot of tag fixing recently, and I've done some pretty large batches, and it appears to be files from large batches that are affected. (tens of thousands of changes, mostly album artist and track number, followed by a "move to organised folder" once I have the tags completed)

I have backups, but I dont know how many files have been affected. I've checked the library drive and its got no issues.

Thanks

Right, but how should I support others' requests?
If you're asking how you support others' requests for the same request as yours, you don't. It would be like stuffing the ballot box.
If you're asking about supporting requests that others have made (in other wishlist threads) you simply reply with "+1".

MusicBee v3.2.6902.32258 (Win10.0), 16 dec 2018 15:09:
Try updating to the latest 3.3 patch (See my sig.)

It's possible the skins you're trying to use that are causing problems are skins designed for 3.3.
