Questions / How Many Subdirectories & Files Cab MusicBee Handle?
« on: April 02, 2022, 01:52:01 AM »
Hello!  I have a fairly large library with over 100,000 files, or organized by category/artist, etc., so sometimes the library can go down quite a few directory levels.  My question:  Is there a limit to the number of files or sub-directories that MusicBee will track while playing randomly?  I feel like I hear the same 50 or so songs a lot.  Thanks!

General Discussions / Artists Keep Repeating--What am I Doing Wrong?
« on: August 20, 2021, 09:58:58 PM »
I have the do not repeat the same artist checked on the DJ tab, and I have it set to not repeat within 25.   But I'll get Elton John or Queen or Billie Joel back to back all day long.  What am I doing wrong?

MusicBee 3.4.7805

Side question:  How does Music Bee detect duplicate artists?  Is it taken from the file's metadata or filename or is a hash generated off the file and then, if the hash is known, a database lookup happens to see who the artist is?

Questions / Constant Clicking Sound Renders this Player Unusable
« on: September 18, 2020, 11:30:35 PM »
Hello, I just installed 3.3.7491 on a Win 7 machine after removing an older version from about a year ago.  Now, I hear a constant low-volume "click click click click click click click click" under every song.  Anyone know how to get rid of that?

Questions / Sound Device Locked & Directory Selection Problems.
« on: January 31, 2020, 12:06:40 AM »
Hey Guys,  I'm having two problems with MusicBee.  And then a question.

1) MusicBee will merrily play for a few hours and then spontaneously pops up a window that says the sound device is locked.  The only way I can get it to work again is to kill it and restart.  It is playing on a laptop running Windows 7.  That laptop lives in a closet and is dedicated to playing music through the house.  Point is, there's no user actually using the computer when this happens.  Seems to be completely spontaneous.  And yes, I've rebooted the machine.  Any ideas?

2) I have a directory called "Playlist" that I stream from off a Linux server.  All is good there.  Then, before Christmas I added the "Xmas." directory so it would play randomly from both Playlist and Xmas.  Well now I cannot remove Xmas.  I can go into the UI and uncheck the Xmas directory and it no longer shows on the main screen, but then when I restart MusicBee, there it is, right alongside Playlist again.  Any ideas here?

And the Question.  Windows Media Player constantly pops up, wanting me to run through it's wizard when I use MusicBee.  Is this normal?  I prefer not to use Windows Media Player just because I don't like having my metadata sent back to the M$ mothership.

Now I know someone will ask what version MB I am using.  Good question!  I don't see where that's shown, but I did update to the latest just before Christmas.

Questions / Same Artist Repeating (stoppit!)
« on: December 12, 2019, 05:58:51 AM »
Hey ya'll,

NewB here.  I've got a rather large and diverse mp3 library library that I have playing "randomly" but it ends up being extremely Queen/Elton/Elvis heaving.   I tried setting the don't repeat the same artist until [ ] tracks to 25 but they'll still play the same artist back-to-back.  How to I make it not repeat the artist?
