Questions / Show History as Albums (or make a playlist that can do it?)
« on: January 10, 2023, 07:45:27 PM »
Hi, is there a way to view History in terms of Albums,  not songs?


Can I make a separate playlist tab view, whatever you call those tab things, to put next to my History tab that would show me the most recent songs I have played (as Albums) ?

Questions / Smart Playlist Request:

Hi, how would I make a Smart Playlist to show:

## 1. sorted by most recent
2. all songs I have rated higher than 4 stars
3. limited to artist containing these words or starting with these words.. also what if I want to include several specific artists?

## Alternative version

same as above but using album ratings

now my next problem - sometimes I see a cool random album pop up (actually I listen to live shows and I have zillions - but for all intents and purposes they are "albums") and I might want to listen to it later.

What would be the best way to save it for later? Add it to some kind of playlist I guess? What's the best way to do that?

thanks! the key was "select by album", I didn't see that before and interpreted when you first wrote selected by album to mean to set "has a value" to "Album"

is there a way to set the single click on the tray icon to load the context menu?

I really use the context menu a lot (mostly for rating songs and for setting volume)

I just tried it and it only showed 1 song.. so edited the auto playlist and saw that "item" was selected and changed that to "album".

However, it still only shows 1 song.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

I'm sorry I forgot what these tabs are called at the top of program, they are like pages. Anyhow I'll call them a page. They contain music. For example I have some that are dedicated just to certain bands.

I'm wondering, is there a way to choose a random album to listen to just from one of these pages?

Questions / Noise Reduction
« on: November 21, 2022, 01:08:05 PM »
Is there some kind of add-on that would do something like Dolby-B or C or something similar noise reduction to music you are listening to?

Just for reference, I'm listening to concert tapes - not commercial music.

Questions / bluetooth media controls
« on: October 13, 2022, 02:38:25 PM »
I have some bluetooth headphones that have a stupid feature that cannot be disabled. When they stretch, they pause/unpause the music. This means that on a large head if you chew or something like that it can pause or unpause the music. Also when you take them off.

Is there a way in musicbee to disable bluetooth media controls from a specific bluetooth device?

Questions / Skipping Songs

Is there any way to get MusicBee to skip songs that match a certain name or pattern? I mean skip during playback

I haven't  been following this thread so I don't know how pertinent this is but I do have a tool I wrote that I use in musicbee that will open files from the song folder. it takes various command line parameters.. mostly I use it as a toolbar button that will open all images and text files. I can't remember if it supports PDFs but I can add that easily. If anyone is interested pm me.

That is true, I usually use comments when the text length is small, but I haven't found a practical way to read really long texts in the comment box. It would also make me have a lot of redundant info if I have to put the same text in the comment tag of every song in an album for quick retrieval. But I get your POV, it's not really a fundamental feature. I figured I'd ask since the code for pdf files is already there and would only need some little refactoring.

I have... I have! well not in the comments box per-se.. but can read it nevertheless.

You have to hover over certain areas and a huge tooltip containing the entire comment will appear (I have some long long comments and it works mostly great)

for Example, if you have comments in Track Information.. hover over that one line of comment and a tool tip will appear. Same with comment columns in the playlist in compact mode.

It works almost perfect the one problem is if the comment tooltip is so big that it touches the bottom of the screen it will disappear immediately.
