Questions / Re: Error while changing metadata

Hi, I get the same message if I change mp3-tags while my multi-room system is playing this song. Hence, there might be external programs which you cannot see in your resource monitor. Check if any other system uses your song files.

Hallo and thanks for your replies,

#1: I use the latest MusicBee-Version (MusicBee 3.2.6827) with this patch: from this thread:

#2: I have set up the monitored folder for my library - I think that's why MB recognises the changes made outside of MB. However, MB warns me that there have been changes (the mentioned red exclamation mark) but does not reflect the changes automatically until I rescan the file. I understand from your comments that there is no way which works automatically.

#3: My understanding is that the mp3-tag changes are the only way (besides new music) how this could work. And this is immanent in my understanding of the function. But perhaps my understanding is wrong. What is the objective of this function if mp3-tag changes triggers the matching tracks anyway even if disabled?

#4: Thanks for that hint. I will try out that later when all the other issues are solved (acutally I am currently not sure how this works and I have to find out but this seems to be a good way to get what I want).

Now if you re-enable auto-lyrics and play a track with USTL/eng tag, does MB auto-add USTL/deu tag to that file?
Hi, I have recently deleted all USTL/* tags except USTL/eng tags. After that I let MB search lyrics for all songs without lyrics and they are stored as USTL/eng. Now everything seems to work.

Thanks a lot for your help.


Questions / Some annoying things about MusicBee I'd like to change
« on: November 21, 2018, 12:16:10 PM »

I am using MB for a few weeks now (coming from iTunes which got worse and worse) and I am quiet happy with it. Howerver, some things are really annoying to me and I wonder if I can change them!?

1. If I am editing the mp3-tags there is no prevention of losing data if I accidently click in the main window selecting another song. All changes are lost. Is it posible to protect of losing data (e.g. auto saving, preventing of changing the song in the edit window)?

2. Sometimes I use another software to change mp3-tags (still iTunes but even more often mp3tag). What I do not like is that MB does not refresh the mp3-tags automatically while opening the file (e.g. playing, editing) even if it regonises that there have been changes made outside MB (it shows that little red sign). Is it possible that MB always refreshes mp3 tags from the file (like iTunes does)? I know I can reimport the mp3-tags but this is manual work and I want MB to do it automatically if / before it uses the file.

3. I use plenty of auto-playlists which should refresh automatically. That works fine. However, there is one playlist which I do want to refresh only manually. I removed that tickmark from automatically refresh the matching tracks but it stills refreshes automatically if I change mp3-tags. What is the reason for that? What am I doing wrong?

4. I have tagged compilation albums with the iTunes compilation flag and the album artist is set to [various artists]. The year is tagged as the song's relase date (not the album release date). If I sort album artist/year/album (which I would like to have for all non-compilation albums) the sorting for compilation albums is exactly like that: All songs from a year are sorted together independently from the album. That means that I have as many clusters as years and wihtin each cluster there are plenty of songs from plenty of albums.
iTunes worked differently for compilations: the compilation album was never devided due to different years of songs but always stucked together. Is this also possible in MB?

Thanks for your help

Great! It works (I just tested it with a few files but that test was working fine). Thanks a lot for your help. It saved hours of hours of boring and stupid work!

I did already delete the USLT/deu lyrics from the exemple file and MusicBee displayed the USLT/eng lyrics (my manually maintained lyrics) afterwards. Furthermore, I have searched other files with two lyrics and from that sample I took all USLT/deu lyrics have a reference to a lyrics service (such as AstraLyrics, lyricskeeper). Therefore, I am looking for a way to find and delete all USLT/deu lyrics from all my files. Is there a chance to make this automatically or do I have to do it manually?

auto-lyrics are disabled. But within the tag inspector I found that there are two different song lyrics:

The USLT/deu is the one which is obviousy coming from the internet (AstraLyrics), the USLT/eng is the on I maintained manually. Can I delete the USTL/deu from all songs?

Hi there, it's me again,

Unfortunately there has been occured another Problem: In some files MusicBee does not show the embedded lyrics but lyrics from the Internet (e.g. AstraLyrics). In iTunes the embedded lyrics are shown.

I added lyrics automatically for songs without lyrics and perhaps MusicBee did not devide properly between missing lyrics and files with lyrics (or the error was sitting in front of the screeen). However, the correct lyrics are still in the mp3 files but not considered / shown in MusicBee. I tried to reload / reread the tags but nothing happened.

How can I make MusicBee to show (or reload) the tagged lyrics from the file instead of internet lyrics.

Questions / MusicBee's shows lyrics without line breaks
« on: November 05, 2018, 03:59:17 PM »
Hi guys,

I just loaded and installed MusicBee to switch from iTunes. Most things work well and even better than Apples software. However, there is one thing which is really annoying to me: All my files are maintained and tagged with iTunes. It works fine for MusicBee, everything is also in MusicBee. Only lyrics are shown without line breaks in MusicBee even though they exist. :'(

To give you a better understanding, I have posted both, how MusicBee shows lyrics an how iTunes does:



It is the same file both music players have access to. If I copy the lyrics from iTunes to MusicBee and save the file with it, the lyrics are shown correctly with line breaks in iTunes and MusicBee. However, I do not want to copy lyrics for thousends of music files. Automatic lyrics are no solution to me since they are mostly not correct (that's why I maintain own lyrics).

Has anybody an idea how I can make MusicBee to show the lyrics correctly?
