Portable Devices / MusicBee sync question - duplicate checking
« on: November 06, 2019, 04:14:08 AM »
I've been trying to sync MusicBee to my phone via USB, and it seems that  it doesn't check to make sure that it's not creating duplicates - it just sends everything right on over regardless of if MusicBee has previously synced the song or not. This when I just barely synced the device 5 minutes ago and haven't even disconnected the device. Is that how it's supposed to work?

Questions / Album covers exist but not showing in album cover view
« on: September 28, 2019, 05:21:04 PM »

As you can see here - when using album cover view, some of the albums show blank covers. However if you click on the album, you can see that it actually DOES have album art.

This is happening all over my library and I'm not sure how to fix it.

Editing to add: if I right click, select edit, and then just click save without making any changes it seems to make the picture show up. But it would be nice if I didn't have to do this for every single album.

I have MusicBee set up so that the playlists are stored as MPB, and the ones I want to sync are set to automatically export as .m3u. I currently use Resilio Sync to sync my music and I can easily add the playlists folder, however

I want any changes I make to the playlist, either in MusicBee or on my phone to sync to each other. So if I update the mpb file, it will sync to the exported file automatically, and then through Resilio Sync to my phone. If I update the playlist on my phone it will sync back to the exported file, and then back into MusicBee's MBP version of the playlist.

I think this should be possible using the virtual device option in MusicBee but when I try I see in the settings that two-way synchronization isn't possible.

Is this possible or if I want them to sync should I be just using .m3u files everywhere?

Questions / MusicBee having issues with externally created .m3u
« on: May 15, 2018, 09:13:16 PM »
Hello all,

I'm having an issue with MusicBee not reading an externally created .m3u playlist file correctly. This is what the playlist looks like when I click on it in the playlist explorer.

In the past, I've successfully exported these playlists using these settings
 I have also had no issues with external modifications to playlists updating within musicbee. I'm trying to ask the community for the other program if their playlists are formatted to use relative paths or not as well but wanted to see if you guys had any thoughts as well?

Questions / MusicBee creating duplicates with DESKTOP[letters/numbers]
« on: January 12, 2018, 06:02:20 PM »
As far as I can tell this has only been happening since I started using MusicBee. I am finding duplicates of random music files in my folders with the exact same title with -DESKTOP [letters/numbers] after it. However these duplicates do not show up in MusicBee itself. (the link is an attempt to share pictures showing what I'm talking about). Obviously this is just extra space that I don't want to keep having to clean up. Any ideas?
