MusicBee Wishlist / Alternate grouping view with a "cover" title
« on: February 24, 2021, 11:50:39 AM »
Hi, first of all, thanks a lot for developing the best music library software !  8)

I would like to suggest an alternate way to display grouping. I don’t know if something similar exists already or if it a has been proposed yet.
The purpose is to arrange albums like physical ones on a library shelves.
All is explained with this picture:

It could also compact all and save a lot of vertical scrolling.
Here is the standard grouped view:

For artist grouping view, it could also display the round artist image.
Let me know if this project could be possible.

All the best

Ok, thanks, it'as actually what I do, but sometimes, when I'm mass tagging, I forget it and it's crashing the browser with a lot of tabs....

I think these web search functions as icons or shortcut could anyway enter into the MB wishlist.

Thanks again, have a nice day


Thanks a lot for your answer,
I remember now why did I use external app instead of custom web link: with web link, you can't setup a shortcut or a toolbar icon.
I use very often theses functions and I need a fast way to use them (and in the information panel it's taking so much space...)

For Steven, maybe it would be simplier to merge these 2 ways of doing quite the same functions: export informations out of MB, internet or not and being able to set icons and shortcut for all kind of things. It would remove a line in the context menus also.

In the meanway is there a way of doing what I wondered with the external app?

Thanks a lot.


MusicBee Wishlist / Context sensitive "send to external tool"

thanks for your software, i've tested a lot of other player, it's still the best in 2019 !  8)

I've added a toolbar icon for a google search. It's pointing on an external application according to "<Artist> <Album>"

application path: C:\Users\Mathieu\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application\vivaldi.exe
parameters: "<Artist> <Album>"

It's working perfectly when I've selected 1 track. The problem is when I've selected an album: if the album contain 12 tracks, it's openning 12 internet browser tabs, with 12 identical searches...

I've often crashed my browser when a big number of tracks where selected.

What can I add to the parameters in order it's searching just once? Maybe, just according to the <Artist> <Album> of the first track selected among the others.

If you have any ideas...

All the best from France


MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Custom Tags - Enumerated data types
« on: June 14, 2018, 11:40:28 AM »
Hi, Great feature!! I waited for something like that !!

I try to use it with the keyword tag but it doesn't work. Directly with the keyword field, it's not possible te set it in "enumerated" and with a custom tag, it doesn't save the change.
Is that normal for the moment? Is it only for mood and occasion tags for the moment?

If it should work properly, I'll try to detail more precisely my problem.

What a software you've created !! congratulations ! :D

Hi everyone,
In the INBOX view, I 'm searching how to highlight with a "!" icon each time it's not ready to by automatically sorted and I would like to highlight the files when the folder contain tracks with many artist.
