Hi Dizza17,
thank you for your advice.
This is what I have tried.

If I go on hamburger top left corner of M-B
Edit Preferences
embed picture in music file
Apply & Save
Then go top left corner of M-B on File scan folder for new files
Choose the Root of my music folder
Click on Proceed
I get the message at the bottom of the screen "Files re scanned/add complete- no new files found
Nothing has changed!

I have taken a selection of music files and loaded them into
TagScanner 6.1.16 and embedded the cover art then saved the files.
Then re-run M-B and re scanned files for changes.
When I hover over the album cover it gives me " Album Cover Cover.JPG"
I was expecting Album Cover Embedded. Some of my music files do show
Album Cover Embedded, but then they always have.
Shame that they don't all show it.
I am wondering whether I have managed to screw the software up,
With the amount of playing around I have done?
I am seeing things I shouldn’t like when I re scan files M-B changes the art cover to a picture which is not embedded in the music file and it’s not even in my Artist Pictures folder. So, heaven knows where that is coming from?
I don't really want to delete the whole lot and start again as I have invested so much time in customizing this.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank You

Now that I know which artwork files are not embedded
Where is the option to  embedd the artwork into the music file?
By choice I would like to  embedd my entire music collection
in one fell swoop.
Can someone tell me if this is possible?
and if yes, then how to do it ?
Thank You

Hello All,
I have always had artwork as in covers for my albums with my music files,
I have never given it much thought about where those pictures were stored.
Weather they were stored in an artwork folder or embedded in the music file.
So, when I did decide to take a look at this.
I found it difficult to work out weather the artwork was embedded in the music file or not, as I do have some artwork in folders in M/B which are linked to albums as I see them, But I also see album cover artwork for which there are no pictures stored within M/B. So, I came to the conclusion I must have a mixture of both?
I have been into the Edit Preferences>Tags(1)>artwork – and enabled (embed pictures in the music file)
I thought I might have found the information by right clicking on the album cover artwork then clicking on the option “Edit” then on the option “artwork”
             My questions, is there an easy way to see from M/B which artwork is embedded in the music file and which is not?
Also is it possible to tag all my music albums & files and instruct M/B to embed
All the artwork into the music files?
Thank you for reading my post.

Questions / Re: New music library and Radio Stations missing?

Thank you, Steven & karbock,
I very much appreciate the advice given.
The reason for divided up my collection into different libraries,
was, it Just seamed a good idea at the time to have
different categories for listening moods, keep the library short,other miner reasons.

Questions / New music library and Radio Stations missing?
« on: October 09, 2023, 10:25:24 AM »
Hello All,
I am using M/B version 3.5.8669 P
I am a big radio fan, I like to use my PC
to listen to the radio stations rather than use an old-fashioned radio.
I have a huge number of stations set up,
With all my preferences and customization set.
My problem is when I create a NEW music library,
I can still see all my music station folders, but all the stream addresses are empty in the folders?
So, I have to import my music streams then they need adding to the correct folders.
The artwork which I have linked to the stations is not imported so that needs correcting manually, and my other preferences need setting up manually.
My original music library is set up perfectly, so my question is:
Is there a file in my original music library folder that I can copy?
Into my other music library folders?
Or edit an *.ini file and copy and paste the radio info?
As an example of what my setup is:
G:\Portable Programs\MBee\MY_MUSICBEE_MUSIC_LIBRARIES\60s Music
G:\Portable Programs\MBee\MY_MUSICBEE_MUSIC_LIBRARIES\70s Music
The list goes on & on & on…………
Thank you.

Yes, fully agree with you Steven!

Yep for sure, phred
I hadn’t seen any updates in a while online,
So asked a Colleague at work who is into his music,
He told me he had read online it was no longer supported,
So, I looked online for it, it seemed to agree with him.
I asked AI Bard it agreed, which it doesn’t now?
I have just checked, so (Fake News from AI Bard) what do you
So, if you want a right answer you go to the horse’s mouth which I did!
Glad to see an Iconic piece of software is still alive and kicking.
I look forward to NEW version 3.6.8….. coming out.

Hi All,
I see MusicBee 3.5.8447
Hasn’t been updated since February 19, 2023.
I read online at several sources that it is no longer
Supported by the author and no more updates will appear.
I also hear there is a BETA 3.6?
All very confusing and misleading info out there online.
Hence the post with my question regarding the future of MusicBee.
Could someone in the know please confirm this or refute it.
Thank you in advance of the info…

MusicBee Wishlist / Find search for radio feeds
« on: June 12, 2023, 01:56:21 PM »
I would like to see in future upgrades to Musicbee
more options to do with radio.
I would like Musicbee to be able to search for music feeds
especially when the station has changed it's IP address.
At the moment we get an error message returned by MB if it cannot locate
the station you added in the settings.
Add a search please.
This website can find any lost or changed radio station current address!
it did cross my mind to whether it could be used as a plugin to do the job ... :D
At the moment I use it manually to find the radio stations then change them by had in MB settings.
