MusicBee Wishlist / Customize fields in Tag Editor
« on: March 15, 2022, 10:05:33 PM »
It would be great if we could customize the fields that appear on the Tags tab of the Tag Editor. This could save a lot of clicks for those of us who have edit metadata in the [...] splitters or on the Tags (2) tab.

For example, I would add Guest Artist, Performer, and Remixer directly below Artist since I often have to edit those fields, and I would remove Conductor since I've never used it. I'd also add Language and my custom tag for Explicit.

Awesome, thanks Steven!

I think I developed minor nerve damage in my right hand by the amount of times I've used right click > Send to... > Replace selected track... to upgrade my songs to FLAC over the past few years.

A hotkey would be perfect because I still have many tracks to do.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Skipping Tracks stay paused if Pause is active
« on: March 02, 2022, 04:40:35 PM »
An alternative method to accomplish this is to set Auto DJ to be fully random and then use the "Now Playing"  view to see the upcoming songs instead of continually pressing "next track."

I set the upcoming songs to auto hide in my right side bar because I usually prefer to be surprised, but you can have it always be visible if you want.

I also wanted to do this, but had to settle on the Thumbnail Browser. While more attractive, the TB doesn't allow for multiple filters or selections like the Column Browser does.

MusicBee Wishlist / Multiple Tag Splitter for "Language"
« on: February 06, 2022, 10:42:56 PM »
I would like to request the Multiple Tag Splitter for the "Language" field. Having a song sung in multiple languages is just as common as a song sung in a single language. While you can split multiple languages with a semicolon and it works fine for filtering purposes, adding languages to songs is cumbersome because MusicBee lists each unique string you've entered into the field as a separate entry.


This field should act like most others and provide me with the "..." so only a single value is suggested when I type.

Thank you anyways.

I just want to confirm that what you are experiencing is in fact due to Android 12. I first reported this back in August when I was part of the beta: https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=28093.msg193643#msg193643.

The workaround I found was to set up the app in Android 11 before upgrading, but I know that's not an option on the Pixel 6 since it ships with 12. Anyway, my permissions unexpectedly got reset a couple weeks ago, so I'm right back to being locked out of the app like you are. Please star the issue with Google so they might consider giving users an option to grant the necessary access anyway: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/196422354.

Other than that, the only fix would be if someone could modify the app to allow users to select any folder on their phone rather than just the root it currently requires.

WARNING: If you are running Android 12 Beta 4, DO NOT not clear the MusicBee Wifi Sync app's data or you will lock yourself out of using it. The app will ask you to select the root folder of your SD card in order to sync, but Android will prevent you due to a '"Can't use this folder: To protect your privacy, choose another folder" message. If you try to grant access to a subfolder, the MusicBee app will then tell you that you can't use a subfolder. As long as you set up wifi sync before Beta 4, you will be fine.

Here are some screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/Uh9ttZ5.

Right before posting this comment, I stumbled upon this Reddit post where someone is having the exact same issue, but with a different app, so it seems something changed in Beta 4. The user created an request in Google's issue tracker, so please consider starring it so they will hopefully revert the change: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/196422354. Thank you in advance.

1. Add one of the following columns to your song list
what exactly do you mean by "song list"? The Now Playing panel? The Library? A playlist?

You should update to the latest patch version and try again.

By song list, I mean the library or a playlist. Basically, anywhere you can add those column fields. Here is a picture of what I'm referring to:

      

I just downloaded the latest patch from your signature, but the problem persists. Here is a new error:

Bug Reports / Error when jumping to letter on certain "Artists" fields
« on: September 24, 2020, 02:15:51 AM »
MusicBee gives an error whenever I try to use my keyboard or the A-Z jumpbar to skip to navigate the song list.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Add one of the following columns to your song list: (a) Artists: Artist, (b) Artists: Guest, or (c) Artists: Performer. The problem does not occur with (d) Artists: Remixer or (e) Artists: Remixer.

2. Click the column header to sort the list.

3. Type a character or use the A-Z jumpbar.

No plans sorry, I don't have much time right now. But even if I did it would not look like the images.

You can try this other skin tho

No prob. And the one you linked is what I currently use 😉

Thanks. Yeah, this and maybe a play all and shuffle all buttons next to the number of tracks would come in handy as well (should have added those in the mockup).

I have some ideas for other tabs and elements too, I'll see if I can do them later.

These look great! Any plans to turn them into actual skins? I'd especially like to use the dark one.

I would like a new option under the "artwork storage" section when syncing my phone to preserve the settings from each individual track, meaning that if I have the album art embedded in the file (for song not part of any album), it will sync those songs with the art embedded. However, if I have the art in the folder instead of embedded (as I do for albums), it will copy just those files over and put their associated art in the folder.

As the syncing is now, you have to either embed everything or put the art in a folder for everything.

This would be helpful because embedding art increases the file size, and my phone is have 4 GB left of its 64 GB capacity.

I'm not home to test, but I don't think I waited a full minute. Maybe close to it, but I stopped it once I figured something was up and never saw a message.
