Bug Reports / 2-way synchronisation fields missing
« on: August 05, 2019, 04:24:55 PM »
So, there was no statement on my original thread, so I'm reporting this as a bug(?)

The 2-way synchronisation fields are missing from the sync tab of my ipod classic. The entries in the config xml get removed when I try an older config. Is this intentional?

Portable Devices / iPod 2 way synchronisation
« on: July 31, 2019, 09:42:10 PM »

Hey, since one of the latest updates, MusicBee does not support 2 way synchronization anymore. The field is not checkable anymore
Now I can't sync play counts. Is there a reason for this?

Can someone help out?

I'm using version 3.3.7115

Bug Reports / Auto-DJ playlist bug
« on: February 19, 2019, 06:12:36 PM »
Version: 3.3.6904

So I have this weird Auto-DJ playlist bug which is a little bit more complicated to describe, but hopefully reproducable:


So I have this auto-playlist with songs I haven't played. It's configured to include all songs of a specific album artist and a play count of 0.
After a song is played, it disappears from the list.

I also have my Auto-DJ setup to use songs from this playlist and to choose songs randomly by title. It's initial size is 15 and it will be extended by 5 titles.

When I select the last or the second-to last song from the playlist and the current playlist is generated and populated with songs from the Auto-DJ, the two last songs are mirrored. So it's not really random, I guess.


I have an auto-playlist. The sources are two different playlists.
Some tracks are in both lists and I want to filter them in my new playlist.

Here is the catch:
I do not want to filter tracks from different albums, I only want to filter the exact same file.

Is that possible?


MusicBee Wishlist / CTRL+Shift in text fields
« on: September 27, 2018, 04:26:43 PM »
Is it possible to support CTRL-Shift in the search window to delete whole words like expected.

When I try that combination in text fields, I get another character, which I tried to copy-paste in between the parentheses "".
Or is that possibly an OS thing?

Questions / Smarter sorting algorithm for albums?
« on: August 26, 2018, 12:42:37 AM »
The sorting algorithm for albums puts 10 after 1 and before 2.

I get that there's probably a string comparison in play.

Before I post that to the wishlist: Is there a possibily to tamper with the sorting order in a specific column?

So I have a couple of auto-playlists with the following settings:

music track source: *another playlist*
*no rules*
limit to: 2 GB selected by: random
shuffle: do not shuffle
select by: track

They differ in the limitation: 1 GB / 2 GB / 10 GB
And the "select by" option (either "track" or "album")

What seems of is that the track selection in all thoses playlists seem to come from the same 7-10 albums. There is no true randomness anymore.

I made a screenshot of an example playlist:

As you can see, the second album is always "Tantrance 3". That's not really random, because there is a big selection of albums and tracks left, but it always comes to this or similar albums.

Or did you do something wrong with my playlist?

Edit: This came to be after the update to 3.2.6672

Questions / Where does the "Last Played" date come from?
« on: October 15, 2017, 06:02:52 PM »
I started a new library this in May 2017. Some songs I've never played in MusicBee have a "Last Played" date going back to 2011.
I imported some songs from iTunes where I played them, I guess. Supposedly on the specific date.

Is this field saved in the file in some tag? I thought this date is only saved in the library.
If it's saved in the file, is there a way to edit it?

This could have been reported before, but I didn't find it:
Original Artist & Original Album do not show up in the tag editor, but there are tags in the tag inspector.

I recently upgraded from 3.0 to 3.1.6466 and when I do a "File Rescan" the file, the tags show up correctly.
So my guess is, that the tags in the tag editor are not directly loaded from the file but from the library where the tags didn't exist before? Therefore I have to "Rescan All Files" just to be sure? Or is there another workaround (or maybe its an actual bug?)


Bug Reports / Track number not showing up
« on: October 08, 2017, 10:01:27 PM »
Version 3.1.6466

If the ID3v2 track number and the APEv2 track number differ. No track number will show up.
But this also happens, when the ID3v2 'TRCK' is "5/21" and the APEv2 'TRACK' is "05".
So 5 is not equal 05?

This happened to tracks I added to my library. The tag editor showed no tag for the track number. When I edited the track number to "5", there was no difference in the tag inspector, but the track number now was correct in the library.

Questions / Small changes to default skin
« on: October 05, 2017, 10:40:10 PM »

I'm using the default skin "MusicBee3". I like it and it really suits my needs and as long as there are no Winamp2 skins, I don't think that I need to change it.

But I would love to implement a small change: I'd like that every other song/line has a slighty different background color, so that the lines have alternating colors.

Is there an easy way to do this myself? I don't know how to open the xmlc files. Got any hints?



is there a possibility to use the option "do not show artwork for albums with less than x tracks" in playlists?

The problem is that in playlists I often have 1 or 2 tracks of an album that is complete in the library and I guess because of that it's still counted as an album with more than 5 tracks in the playlist, even though there are only two in the list.

The "Album and Tracks" view gets rather clunky if I use it in playlists, which is a bummer.
