Polls / MusicBee for Android
« on: July 31, 2018, 06:09:06 AM »
Let me be honest. Unlike in the past when I used to listen to music on my laptop, today I am spending very little time on my laptop for the same. I'm spending more time watching movies & browsing on laptop whereas for music I'm on my phone full time.

This caused a major shift from MusicBee that was my primary source of listening to music in the past because I was spending more time with my laptop back then to searching for the best music players on Android every now and then today. This fact is hard to endure but it is the truth, and not just with me but with most of the people out there.

Keeping that in mind, if there was one app that I really wanted on my phone, it would be MusicBee. If I did a complete reformat of my phone, it will be the first app that I would install in a heartbeat because I can't live without music & inbuilt floating lyrics.

Any thoughts or developments here?

Questions / Custom Preset UI
« on: August 16, 2016, 09:28:44 PM »
I've brought this topic into light before. Just like we share skins, is it possible to share Custom UI here, because many of them here have customized the interface so amazingly but noobs like me don't know how to set like that.

Beyond MusicBee / Best Music Download Website?
« on: July 23, 2016, 02:41:54 AM »
I'd like to know where do you guys download your songs from. Preferably, I'd like sites that offers MP3's in 256kbps or higher formats.

The way I see it, the Settings menu is a little too crowded and unintuitive. I think it needs an overhaul, and should be more user friendly.

Any ideas for the same are welcome. Maybe some mock-up's or the images of settings menu of other apps' can be used as reference.

MusicBee Wishlist / Single click Reset Button

Is there any way to reset MB settings to default? If possible, can you implement a button to reset the settings?

Questions / Sound quality
« on: April 29, 2016, 11:16:43 AM »
I find that the sound quality of MB is not as good as Foobar or AIMP. What could be wrong? Or are they better in that aspect?

Questions / Link to Beta versions from Download page
« on: April 29, 2016, 06:50:19 AM »
Not everyone goes through the Forum to check for new releases and the latest version of MB for most of them must be 2.5. I suggest Steven to create a download link for new beta versions on the download page, just like most other software's do. This makes it accessible to new users.

Beyond MusicBee / Best Free & Paid Android Music Player
« on: April 28, 2016, 11:33:55 AM »
In your opinion what is the Best Free & Paid Music Players for Android. I would like your favourites and suggestions.

Also if MusicBee comes to Android it's popularity would skyrocket! Currently too many people whom I know, don't know about the software. Steven should seriously consider this.

Questions / Best Free Software Competition
« on: April 18, 2016, 07:27:17 AM »
MalwareTips is running a nomination thread for Best Free Software, and MusicBee has been also suggested. :)

The nominations has ended and MusicBee has entered the Top 10 for the Poll thread :D

Questions / Share your MusicBee Layout Config here
« on: October 06, 2015, 02:23:11 PM »
 I saw some amazing layout config from people who are posting here. Manually setting it up is a pain. I'd like to know if there is a way to share layout config, and just the config file.

If it's possible, please share your layout config here. Also post screenshot of your MusicBee interface.

If it's not, this is a feature request I'd like to suggest, so that others can simply copy the .cfg file (or whatever) and make their MB to look like others.

Questions / How to get MusicBee customized like this?
« on: August 15, 2014, 08:18:43 AM »
I'm really bad at customizing MusicBee, but I did see someone's customization that I really liked.

Am using the default customization, could someone please tell me how to achieve this setup? The skin doesn't matter, just how to get it customized like that.

MusicBee Wishlist / Loading Playlist through Hotkey
« on: September 07, 2013, 02:07:28 AM »
One thing I've constantly wanted, however, is innate functionality in the player to load up a playlist through a hotkey function.

For example, let's say I want to switch to some tense music while I'm playing a game, then back to calm stuff when the fighting dies down. With my dream player, I'd just hit Ctrl+F1 or something else, then Ctrl+F2. No mucking around with alt+tabbing, digging through my library, praying I haven't been shot to pieces while I've been out, and then getting my space jam on.

I tried fiddling with AutoHotkey, but that, unfortunately, ended up minimizing what I was doing when I used the keybind. A for effort, at least; it loaded the playlist fine.

Is there something like that out there? Is there a functionality in MB that helps me do this?

Is it possible to set Layout Views for each folder you select, or the playlists, so that you don't have to manually change them everytime? I need to set different layout views for different playlists/folders.

For instance in English songs, the Artist is given more importance, whereas in Hindi & Japanese songs, the Movie/Anime/Album is given more importance

Questions / Comparison of Audio Player software
« on: May 28, 2013, 10:54:25 AM »
I was looking at the comparison charts at Wikipedia, and boy! MusicBee is just amazing compared to other music managers.

So am here to ask Steven if there are any changes to be made in the Wikipedia article, and also to look at certain features that's unavailable in the player, whether they will be implemented in the future.

The comparison page includes:

O.S requirement: Only Windows
Metadata ability: Perfect
Playlist ability: Perfect
Features: Video playback missing and No outbound streaming
Extended features: Perfect, except for no A-B repeat. Will this be implemented? [if someone wants to hear only a portion of the song for study]
Audio Format ability: Perfect, except for no lossy compression for Real Audio
Container Format ability: MP4 and Ogg only
Scalable, composite and emulation format abilities: NSF only
Protocol abilities: No RTSP and MMS
Optical media ability: "?" for DVD-Audio and HDCD

MusicBee Wishlist / MB Interface Overhaul Ideas!
« on: November 16, 2012, 06:24:19 AM »
1. One major request I'd like to put forward is to make MB interface elements to support drag n drop style. For instance dragging Now Playing window and Album art to the place you like.

2. Is it just me or someone who think that the interface of MB is pretty basic. For me, I'd like to have rounded buttons on the bottom bar, not typical square ones as the former looks more professional.

3. Choice of colors used in different panes can be more diverse that'll add to the beauty of the interface. That will make the panes more distinct. The colors should blend in perfectly though.

If you do have any better suggestions, list them here.
