Beyond MusicBee / Re: MusicBrainz Picard q & a thread
« on: April 24, 2020, 04:46:10 PM »
I tried adding the script now but do i have to run it manually? It's not really clear when it runs, when I save?

Also this script seems to make it so that tracks i tagged previously don't get detected automatically.

I'm trying to wrangle all the tag stuff but i can't get it to work, I will get back to it.

I wish musicbee could read the recording tags from picard, i just discovered acousticbrainz and i want to map the url stuff so i can check track i have tagged. :-\

Oh man, I just found that tiny ^ thing next to the Track Title thing... never ever figured that was clickable... :-[
Why can't that be shown all the time or at least show it on the other tab instead? Or how can we make it stay open? It's a bit confusing..

Ok, so my situation is reversed. I can see the TXXX/Work tag if I click that thing but it won't read the work tag for m4a files unless you make the custom tag I made. I dont have many of those so that's not that problematic but still worth pointing out.

The real issue still stands, I can't get the "thumbnail browser" or the "left main panel" thing to sort my music by works unless they are m4a files as shown in the last image I posted. Or maybe I can but I have to use virtual tags? Maybe I can combine the two work tags to one virtual tag?

Thanks for the help so far by the way! :)

I have 3.2.6827, looks like I was one version behind. Updating didn't change anything but thanks for reminding me.

Wait, you can see the work tag and use it beyond the tag inspector? Where does it show up? Can you sort and group by the work names?

This is is what I got, I want to see work there basically. it shows up via custom tags but only for m4a files.

New Picard is out, lots of fixes and stuff.

I recently learned that I can sort/filter my library by composers which is real handy with picard tags, I can't get musicbee to read the tag for WORK in most cases, some of my files can do it but most of them can't. Musicbee can find and sort by workID without problems but not the actual name of the works..

Looks like it can find the work tags if the files are .m4a but not mp3, it can see them in the tag inspector though as TXXX/Work but if i enter that into the new custom tag thing for id3 it just will save it as "Work"

Anyone got this to work?

That works! I only used the first script though, I don't need extra remixer stuff.

Thanks for the help and thanks for the script! :D

That might be correct for musicbee but is the "artist" field supposed to be empty in Picard when there are multiple artists? Looks a bit odd, even other software like VLC it looks to be no artist tagged..

For the DJ hero tracks I tagged right the first time somehow and can't reproduce the result this happens:

It seems to not change anything that badly except removing the "artist" tag, maybe needlessly.

It seems to have solved it for musicbee at least so that's progress. Still not sure if it's exactly right yet.

This is picard 2.0.1 with the newly copied script with id3 tags and UTF-8.
What tag version are you using in picard?

2.0 is out:

Just be aware that it's not an installer, it's a single executable that also might upgrade/poorly import your settings so back them up before even running the file.
Be aware that downgrading from 2.0 to 1.4 may lead to configuration compatibility issues – ensure that you have saved your Picard configuration before using 2.0 if you intend to go back to 1.4.
EDIT: fixed:

About the scripts, i was using this one:

And it was still problematic. Like I said, if you can tag any mp3 to that album I linked above and get proper split artists in musicbee then I'm curious how you did it. Not sure if the music you tag creates this issue.

I got it right once and that might be thanks to that plugin, script or the 2.4 id3 tag setting or some combination of the three.

And I'm sorry for the late reply... :-[

I'm trying to tag this release and get the split artist stuff working but I'm having problems. I tried using the first script on the wiki page and using the plugin and I somehow got a good result the first time but now I can't reproduce it.. I think I'm not sure if I should use the script and the plugin or both and also if I should use idtag 2.3 or 2.4...

Can anyone here tag any mp3 to one of those tracks and get the artists "right"?

This is what I get now:
Basically Original values are good if musicbee can see the different artists but I'm not sure how I got them and I can't reproduce it.

EDIT: I might have figured it out, using the plugin, 2.4 tags and new mbee 3.2 seems to work even though it looks wrong in that image.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Change podcast artwork
« on: March 14, 2018, 04:43:22 PM »
Please let us do this, just need an option to refresh the art from the RSS feed if they changed it.

And let me show the album art for the mp3 file I'm listening to when listening to podcasts, many podcasts I listen to have different art per episode that relates to the episode itself and it's a shame you can't see them unless you Right click>Edit

General Discussions / Re: MusicBee has finally come to Windows Store
« on: February 24, 2018, 02:45:20 PM »
I'm kind of curious about how easy it is to backup and migrate to the regular version is, there seems to be something like the normal appdata folder located in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\50072StevenMayall.MusicBee_kcr266et74avj\LocalCache\Roaming\MusicBee, wonder if that would work for migration using this method.

I'm not having any problems with the windows store version currently but I'm kinda worried I might need this some day..

EDIT: I did the backup thing as described here and it seems to have worked fine:
If you don't do this backup then all settings will be gone it seems.

Left the music and the musicbee folder in the music folder where it was, uninstalled store version of musicbee, downloaded the regular thing, started it, closed it and copied the contents of the backup folder to \AppData\Roaming\MusicBee and it worked.

I wish there was an easier way to check the musicbrainz site from musicbee directly, preferably by right clicking a track or something.

Is there any way to make custom web links to the MusicBrainz pages for each release, recording, artist, etc?
For example, a track might have this tag (from mediainfo lite)
MusicBrainz Album Id        : f2c9734d-707c-4d09-92e6-244d741bf94e
Could musicbrainz take that tag and make a custom weblink to this page?

Looks like custom web links can be made for searching for artist tags but I can't tell if musicbee can use these tags in some way.
Maybe web links don't show up quite where I thought they would but it's something at least.

It's a shame that most of my music got these specific tags that tie to an online database but musicbrainz can't take advantage of it really.
