In order to access the settings of the static library playlists, i needed to change the the library playlists to be MBP Format (I had configured the library playlists as M3U in the MB Settings under "library"). Then, in the static playlists settings, i can choose: export automatically.
Is it more clear now?

I found the problem - when you set the library playlists to M3U, you cant access settings....
Thank you very much, happy to have found this option   (:

Hi Phred,

thanks for your support! I am still not sure what I am missing. I am pretty sure I am right clicking on a playlist... Here is a screenshot. It looks pretty similar too what you are doint, just this option is missing.

I hope I am not missing something obvious here...

If there would be an option to automatically export static playlists, my problem would be solved ... But somehow I don't have the option of playlist settings when I right click on static playlists.
(By static you mean "playlist", like non-auto playlist right?)

When I right click I have the following options
Play now
Play shuffled
Queue next
Queue Last
Lock playlist
Edit playlist
List (some options)
Export playlist
Send to (various options
New (various options)
Open in new Tab

Am I missing something? Would be great if you / anyone could explain where to find the option. Thank you in advance.

I am have a normal musicbee installation and I am on version 3.5.8296

right now I am streaming music via Music via my Synlology NAS to my phone when I am on the go!
I can also use the musicbee plalists which is great BUT it only works with "external playlists" because the filepath needs to be relative.
This means, I have to export every playlist manually everytime i make a change to the playlist. There is the option for exporting external playlists automatically, but that only works for smart playlists.  I use more than 50 playlists and update then regularly, which is a pain to export manually evertime.
I wish one of following features, so that playists are synchronized automatically

- an option, to make the filepath of the standard playlists a relative filepath (this option would be much better, as one could edit playlists on the go on the smartphone via two-way synchronization).
- or have an option, to automatically export all playlists when changes are made (also for non-smart playlists)

This way, together with the synology NAS - and I guess with many other music streaming servers, it would be possible to easily access current playlists on the go.

Thank you so much!

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a possibility to delete tracks in my mb library when I listen to my library via my smartphone.

I want to listen to tracks in my inbox (while I am commuting: with my smartphone) and decide, which one I want to keep and which one I want to delete.

I have a media server at home. Maybe a possibility with two way sync is possible to... For example moving tracks which should be delete to a specific playlist?

Maybe anyone has good ideas :)

Thank you very much!

hey hiccup, thank you for your answer. I know that its not easy... just searching for anything that could enhance the workflow.
Sorry "discord" means discogs. Changed it.

Yes, I looked into the option of using Tag Hierarchy (which doesnt tag files as far as I understand and which doenst write into genre/category tags I think). And I prefer my tags to be stored in the file.
Also, I tried using discogs which works on albums, but not so well on individual songs.
I dont need help figuring out which genres should relate to wich category etc.

I am just wondering what would be the best workflow and how others are doing it.  I would LOVE the tag hierarchy feature with the option to write the corresponding tags. So I would just enter "dub techno" into subgenres custom tag and it would write "techno" to genres tag and electronic music genre category....

Questions / Easiest way for Genre / Genre Category / Subgenre Tagging

Hello Everyone and sorry for my bad English,

i would like to know what is the easiest way to tag genre / subgenre and category. Is it possible to automate this process? so that I enter subgenre, and genre and genre category are entered automatically?
Or is it possible to tag songs genre via discogs? I have around 3000 songs which need tagging. And I would like them to have at least genre and genre category.
What would be the best workflow?

Thank you very much!

//Edit: okay I solved it myself. I deactivated autobackup and restarted the computer. I guess the baseline file was being used by the autobackup. :)

Hey Boroda,
I just deleted 4000 genre-tags by accident. Luckily I made a tag backup before. But When I click on "open", after selcting the backup, nothing happens... Does it work in the background and needs a lot of time?

After a long wait I just got this error:

MusicBee v3.3.7016.32512 (Win10.0), 8 Sep 2019 22:42:

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I did everything I wrote and the things you suggested. :) didnt help. But I found the solution. The library organisation rules included a wrong old path! When I fixed it, everything worked again . Not sure if this is the intended behaviour or a bug!


I recently moved my music collection to another drive and used "Remap Music Folders" to tell MusicBee about it. The music plays properly. When I try to edit a track, however, after I press OK, I'm told "File not found at expected location" followed by the file name. The "Modified Date" field shows that the track updated, but it doesn't reflect the changes that I made. I've confirmed that the files are at the location that the edit window's Properties > Location" expects to find them.

I  just copied this thead below, because my englisch is not good. But I have exactly the same problem after relocating my library.

I am on vacation right now and have a lot of time for tagging :) A fix would be awesome!!

Best regards

4) and of course the option to RIP the soundcloud stream :) :) this would be too amazing ;)

Hi Steve!
I was very excited when I read about musicbees new soundcloud search update on my favourit blog ( NICE WORK!!!!

Some suggestions:

1) It would be nice to have the soundcloud search integrated in the normal searchfield (not within the field "Internet").  --> Maybe like a soundcloud section under the regular search results
- When I search for a song and realize that I dont have it on my computer yet, I could still play it directly from the search window (It would be nice to also have youtube results listed there).
- Also, one could check his harddrive collection vs, available songs of the artist

2) It would be nice to use the autoplaylist feature of soundcloud which is very very very  good in my opinion. Maybe it could be integrated in musicbees autoplaylist (like the lastfm autoplaylist feature?)

3) It would be nice to add ones soundcloud profile to play the favourite songs (connected to ones account) via musicbee
