Aren't there already more than three highlight slots, at least as far as I'm aware you can click the plus after the third row and a blank fourth row shows up.
At most three highlighting icons/colour blocks will be displayed, regardless of the number of rules you have defined.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Album of the day.
« on: September 25, 2023, 12:11:04 PM »
aktor, you're right, a random selection won't stay the same all day, but here is a partial solution.

For an auto-playlist selecting a whole album at random, see this post:

However, since the auto-playlist's content will change each time you re-open it, you have 2 possible workarounds.
  • Manually save the auto-playlist's content to a static playlist.
  • Or, in the auto-playlist edit window, tick option "automatically export a static copy" (lower left corner).
    That static copy will only be overwritten if you re-open the auto-playlist edit window and hit "Save".
    The location of static copies is defined in: Preferences -> tab "Library" -> section "playlists" - > option "exported playlists".

Otherwise, a fully automated selection as you wish is not possible in the current state of MusicBee. It would require the ability to set the "random seed" to the value matching "today at 0:00".

Unless I’ve completely missed it and it’s quite insignificant, I was thinking should Display Composer also be included in the relevant lists/sections along side Display Artist? Ie how it’s written to files and mapping requirements between MB & MP3tag. It’s pretty obvious it follows the same principles as Display Artist, but it might be worth noting for the sake of completeness!
Best regards Dizza👍🏼

Nice suggestion, Dizza! The posts have been updated.

Hello Neeil2001 and welcome to the forum.

Within the extracted folder, the 2 .dll files are simply in subfolder MB_Chromecast\Plugin.

Direct link to the latest .ZIP (v. 2.0.0), just in case:

Questions / Re: Has PDF
« on: September 17, 2023, 05:06:45 PM »
(...) I just can't find the "track details" to click the pdf box. I currently have the main pane set to "album + tracks", but I have tried other views such as "tracks" but I still can't see the relevant panel. Sorry, I must be missing the obvious. I hope you can help guide me through this.

"Track details" and "Track details (2)" are not accessible in the main panel, but you can have them in other panels:
  • left sidebar,
  • left main panel,
  • right main panel,
  • right sidebar.

This is how you can add them to your panel arrangement:
  • Select MusicBee's main menu -> View -> Arrange panels...
  • From the right pane, drag and drop "Track details" to any of the four panels mentioned above.

The "left main panel" and "right main panel" are shown when they are not empty.
If the "left sidebar" or "right sidebar" are invisible, simply use the icons at both ends of the status bar, showing an arrow next to a rectangle.

Questions / Re: Ripping To AAC
« on: September 14, 2023, 06:47:04 PM »
Hi OWEI and welcome to the forum!

If you use MusicBee's installed or portable version, you're just a few clicks away from playing your .aac files.
(As for the store version, I don't know...)

  • Download this .zip file:
  • From the root of that .zip, copy bass_aac.dll to MusicBee's main application folder
    (if you use the installed version, it's most probably C:\Program Files (x86)\MusicBee)
  • Restart MusicBee and rescan your collection (Main menu -> File -> Scan folders for new files)

I've just tried playing the file with bass_dts.dll (after changing the audio file's extension to .dts), in vain.
I suspect that this version of bass_dts.dll cannot manage more than 2 channels.

Questions / Re: Is anyone using the tag LYRICIST?
« on: September 13, 2023, 12:39:03 PM »

There's a common question to ask yourself for any piece of information: will you need it? Or is the piece of information important to you?
From a practical point of view thus, if you are not likely to filter out your songs by LYRICIST (or even COMPOSER), why would you populate those tags?

In the past, I recorded LYRICIST for a few songs based on works by famous writers, but I've almost never used the field since.
As for COMPOSER, I populate it mainly for classical music, and to some extent for jazz, or works for big bands.

Questions / Re: Incorrect audio output on Dolby Atmos files
« on: September 06, 2023, 04:05:30 PM »
I've just tested with a few ac3 files.

I could play a YT video (sound OFF) while MusicBee was playing an ac3 in WASAPI exclusive mode,
and this with any of the 3 browsers I have on my computer (running Win10 x64): Firefox, Vivaldi and Edge (latest versions for all of them).

Another weird observation, though:
for one of the files, MB plays it correctly in WASAPI shared, but it's distorted in WASAPI exclusive, thus the opposite of GoroUgur's experience.

MusicBee could play the ac3 files even without adding bass_ac3.dll to its main folder.

Bug Reports / Column Browser: virtual tag "Musician Credits" incomplete
« on: September 03, 2023, 02:42:11 PM »
Hi Steven,

I presume the following behaviour is not intended in the Column Browser:
after using the Multiple Artist Splitter on an .mp3, virtual tag Musician Credits is available,
but it shows only the last artist present in TMCL (2.4) or IPLS (2.3).

MB v3.5.8631.34314 (latest patch).

Test file available in this cloud folder,
with the following tags entered through the Multiple Artist Splitter:

display artist
Sonny & Cher

Artists In text mode:
Sonny Bono: Artist
Cher: Artist
MyTestPerformer23: Performer
Jennifer Kae: Guest Artist
MyTestRemixer23: Remixer
Mike Rubini: piano
Al Pellegrini: conductor
Dean Parker: guitar
Matt Betton: drums
Bert Fanette: organ
David Hungate: bass guitar
Dahrell Norris: percussion

Single value shown in the column browser under "Musician Credits":
Dahrell Norris

@hiccup @Dizza17 Thanks for your compliments and keen comments!

These are the resulting additions, after fumbling deeper in MB's entrails:

(4b) Split up between:
- Main panel  /  Track information  /  Virtual tag formulas
- Thumbnail browser
- Column browser

(4c) Added: IPLS (ID3 v2.3) and TMCL (ID3 v2.4)
