Questions / Re: Album Cover view, sort
Last post by casey on Today at 12:14:00 AM   |  Started by casey
Hi All,

I defined a virtual tag  as Album_L = $left(<Album>,1) and sorted by Album_L and no change from previous out of order sort.

Note I had to re-instate Custom1 = "Set Subtitle" as part of an album definition so that I could obtain different artwork for each disk.

When I search for this album I type :"Bach 2000" V05

This allows MB to find the Album Volume and display all the 11 CDs in volume 5.

The desire is to order the album covers per CD independently of Album and Set Subtitle.

If possible I could sort by filename, but it seems sorting is ignoring any other fields once the album is defined by Album Artist, Album, Custom1.

Bug Reports / Re: Podcast "Episode Date" not sorting correctly
Last post by plzhalp on April 13, 2021, 11:46:47 PM   |  Started by plzhalp
This is probably not the answer you're looking for, but it looks like the episode number is part of the title. If so, sort by  the title and the episodes should be in the order in which they were released.
I tried that, but clicking on the "Title" header doesn't sort them (clicking on "Episode Date" does try to sort them, but they still come out in the wrong order)

Tried that. Doesn't work. 2021 collection stills remains at the bottom of the panel.

Questions / Re: Library main panel showing current YEAR albums on the bottom instead of top.

If you click "Albums" you'll see an option for Sort By with the choice of "Ascending" and "Descending."    Choose Descending instead of Ascending.

Questions / Check for update
Last post by DudiThePsycho on April 13, 2021, 09:23:15 PM   |  Started by DudiThePsycho
"check for update on startup" marked with V but i am not get message on a new update
my current version is 3.3.7491

In my library's center panel the first sorting is by Albums/Album Covers.
Then: a) Sort by: Year/Album  (with Sort Ascending)
           b) Group by: Year.
It is something that works for me quite well. As shown in the screenshot, on the top of the center panel YEARS are listed in chronological order: the current one on the right side of the panel line. With that sorting/grouping I could always see the current Year albums on the very top of the library panel. The 2020 albums below the 2021 ones. The 2019 albums below the 2020 ones, and so on...
But since the last build update (3.4.7764 Store) without any manual change to my sorting/grouping, the 2021 albums are shown on the very bottom of the panel and I have to travel from the bottom and upwards.
Is this some kind of bug?
Thanks.

Bug Reports / Podcast "Episode Date" not sorting correctly
Last post by plzhalp on April 13, 2021, 07:58:19 PM   |  Started by plzhalp
I recently restored all of musicbee files (including audio files) to a new computer and my podcast now episode are displaying in a strange order. This is happening to multiple subscriptions. It looks like there's multiple date-time formats being used for some reason. I tried changing my short date format in my windows settings, deleting a few episodes and re-downloading them but that hasn't fixed it (isn't really a usable solution to re-download all my podcasts again).
.
All of those episodes pictured are files restored from my old computer so I don't know why they would have a different date format from each other. Is there a way to mass-unify the date format on these files? Or make it sort them via the actual order they were released...?

Plugins / Re: Subsonic Client
Last post by alexprevity on April 13, 2021, 07:35:19 PM   |  Started by Steven
Are you creating your playlists on Subsonic and playing them on MB?

I have MB running on my PC. It exports playlists (auto and static) any time there's a change. Subsonic is also running on the same PC. The music files are on a NAS, with its directory mapped to a drive letter. Subsonic scans the music files (on the NAS) and the playlist files (on a PC) once a day and updates Subsonic. Subsonic has no trouble seeing/playing the playlists.

Where is MB installed?
Where are you playlists?
Where are you music files?
Are you exporting your MB playlists?
Is Subsonic not seeing them?
Do you have MB set up correctly to export the playlists? And are you remapping the file path(s)?


I don't have any issue getting manual playlists created in MusicBee showing up in Subsonic! That part works fine. My issue is within MusicBee itself.

MusicBee is installed on my PC, and my music files live on my Synology NAS. The NAS is not able to be mounted to my PC as a remote drive, so I use my Mac to connect to the NAS to manage its media organization via iTunes. The issue is that if I create an auto playlist in MusicBee, it cannot properly see music that I access via the Subsonic MB plugin. I can easily make manual playlists with Subsonic source in MB, but the auto playlist feature does not seem to play nice with the Subsonic plugin. For example, I would want MusicBee to make an auto playlist with any "loved" songs with the "VGM" genre. No matter what I try and do with any criteria, MB auto playlists cannot see Subsonic media, even if you are able to technically select Subsonic as the media source in the auto playlist settings menu.
