Questions / latest update?
« on: March 26, 2024, 07:26:25 PM »
Browsing though the Questions I found a post which finished with the OP successfully downloading ver 36_8849. I have ver 35_8698 and when I check for updates that is the latest version. However 8698 is from oct 2023. I thought maybe  Steven was not available but if there are later versions then how can I access them? Am I doing anything wrong?

Questions / lyrics panel
« on: November 10, 2023, 05:50:31 PM »
I've made an accidental change which I cant get back again. I used to start playing an album and if available the lyrics would automatically update as the next track was played. Now it starts with lyrics of 1st track but I have to click the track on the now playing list to see the lyrics. This used to happen automatically as tracks were played. Please help what have I done. ???

MusicBee Wishlist / save player settings

player settings need to be swapped around depending on the source and hardware setup. Can you provide a save option when you can click on a setup and label it .

General Discussions / Best settings for Player
« on: January 14, 2023, 03:33:47 PM »
Despite the history on the forum concerning the DLNA plug in Its working OK for me. My question is in the player settings for output and sound device does the choice have any effect on the sound quality of the file being sent. I have mine set as direct sound and primary sound driver. thanks

Questions / airplay installation
« on: November 26, 2022, 05:30:00 PM »
I'm having trouble understanding the instal. In the player preferences I can see the remote speakers output, but can't see it in the
output to drop down box, so I don't know how to send a file via airplay. The configure box is showing all 3 of my airplay devices. Am I missing part of the instal like a player or something?

thanks  :-[

General Discussions / How do you people listen to your Music using MB
« on: March 21, 2021, 02:06:50 AM »
I have posted similar questions before particularly with regard to DLNA support, and we all know where that ended.
So what I am asking is with MB being  the best music manager free or not  how are you people listening to your MB organised music library. PC Speakers, USB leads to amplifiers, headphones, network? You are all listening some way so TELL ME!

Questions / now playing is this a bug
« on: March 02, 2021, 09:15:24 PM »
I've noticed recently if i put a list of tracks on now playing it plays all of them OK but after they have all played it leaves the last track on now playing as the first track. I then can't clear it  and have to include it as the first track on a new player list. a bug maybe  thanks

 ;) hope this hasn't been explained before
If I have a list in now playing, if I clear it it always leaves the 1st track displayed . then I need to faff about to clear it.
Thank you

Questions / DLNA Miracle (almost)
« on: May 20, 2018, 09:10:52 PM »
If moderator needs to move this post then please do.
I have not used MB for a while as it would not play flac files to my Cambridge streamer. Reluctantly I moved to JRiver as Steven could not spend the time on any more development. I said in several posts this was a shame as MB was and still is the best.
So imagine my surprise and delight when after a firmware update on my streamer (mainly to stream Tidal but also other minor bug fixes) I checked out MB and found it will now play flacs. However now there is a bug on the Cambridge for all DLNA software where it will only play one track and not to move on to the next. Cambridge are aware of this and are promising a fix and have told me that once done there is no reason why I cant use MB to send flacs to the streamer.
So I am very happy to have MB back. The point is that maybe a lot of the problems with DLNA are not necessarily down to MB's plugin but the ability of the hardware to communicate universally.

Questions / bonjour is required
« on: January 24, 2017, 09:23:07 PM »
i think it is since musicbee 3 but I cant be sure. When I launch MB I get an error message saying Bonjour is required for this application and cannot be found. When I click close it takes me to a web site but there are lots of different progs available.  Any help please.

Questions / backup to network drive
« on: January 10, 2016, 02:33:40 PM »
I have backed up my music files and settings to a usb drive plugged into my Asus router. This worked OK and I can see my backups and play them etc. But when I go to backup again after adding some new files the backup process will start over again, i.e. MB will try to back up the entire library again.
Any help please will be great.

Questions / strange backup behaviour
« on: January 24, 2015, 10:54:42 PM »
Every time I back up my actual music files there is a small bunch of them which keep backing up.  I've executed backup and then immediately backed up again and these files are shown  being backed up again even though there obviously have been no additions since the last back up.
Any ideas please?

Questions / dlna to roberts 83i
« on: December 18, 2014, 12:41:27 AM »
Having installed the dlna plugin I can see my Samsung bdh6500 Blu-ray player and my pioneer wireless speaker but not my Roberts 83i. I have tried tweaking the plugin settings with no luck.
Its the Roberts that I mainly want to use.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks :)
