Yeah, you're right. If I uncheck all of the providers it still pulls in artist pictures sometimes.

I wonder what's going on here then. Where does it connect to to get these pics? Are there no settings related to this?

So, changing the order has not fixed this. It's just changed the artists I don't get pictures for. For example, now I do get pics for Madonna and Rihanna, but I don't get them for Stevie Wonder, Wu-Tang Clan and The Notorious B.I.G.

Thanks for the reply. I think I might have found the cause of this.

If you go into Preferences - Tags (2), what are your artwork providers and what order are they in?

Here's what I have now: -

This is working. When I made this thread, I had Google at the top and second. I swapped the order of those two around and now it works. I don't understand why though, but it does.

As for the display mode, these are my settings: -

Under Theater Mode I don't even see "artist picture" as an option. I have "Cine View", "Default Narrow and Wide" and "Rdio Style (embedded).

However, the setting I was using before - having "Artist picture" selected as in my screenshot above, was working fine until recently.

I wonder if there's some issue with receiving artist pictures from Google, however, I assumed that by having multiple items checked on the list, it would go through each of them in turn, but that doesn't seem to be the case, because with Google at the top, I get no pictures for Madonna and Rihanna, for example, but with at the top, I do.

When I switch to the "Now playing" tab, it searches online for an artist picture and then displays it as a background. For some reason though, I'm not getting pictures appearing for lots of popular artists. Examples include Madonna, The Beatles, Rihanna, Alice in Chains. All I get is a coloured background instead.

What's going on? Where does MusicBee pull these pictures in from? Where are the settings related to this? Is it some kind of image copyright issue?


Bug Reports / Re: Double-click bug in Windows 10 with latest beta
« on: March 16, 2018, 08:38:51 PM »
Ahh, OK, so it's intentional behaviour then.

TBH, it's only really an issue in cases where I accidentally double-click the wrong file, so I then double-click another file inside the 2.5 seconds, which doesn't exactly happen often.

If you want to change it to 1 second, that would be better IMO, but it's not really a big deal.


Bug Reports / Double-click bug in Windows 10 with latest beta
« on: March 15, 2018, 07:48:25 AM »
This bug has actually been around for a long time but I keep forgetting to report it.

In MusicBee I have it set so that when I double-click a file, it starts to play immediately, regardless of whether a file is already playing or not.

However, often when I double-click a file it gets added to the end of the queue. Sometimes I can click the same file multiple times in a row and, for example, the first 5 times it'll get added to the end of the queue so there's multiple duplicate entries for the same file in the now playing list, but then the 6th time I double-click it the now playing list is cleared and the file starts to play.

It seems rather random, although it seems more likely that a file will get queued rather than playing immediately.

I can replicate this bug and post a video/GIF if you like, and I can provide logs or whatever helps you track the issue down. Just let me know what to do.

Good spot! Thanks, Steven. I've switched to the older version of the DLL and things are back to normal.

when a track is playing MB sets the flag to keep the system awake but not the monitor

The issue seems to be that the flag is set to keep the system awake regardless of whether music is playing or not.

If I launch MusicBee and then run "powercfg -requests", I get this result even though the program is just idling and no music is playing: -

With Groove Music, I only get that result if audio is actually playing. If no audio is playing, no flag is set to keep the PC awake.

I'm using the latest version of MusicBee 3.2.x and the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date.

I used to be able to start a podcast going on MusicBee and after 10 minutes my monitor would turn off, then once the podcast ended, my PC would go to sleep.

Now, neither of those things happen. If MusicBee is running, even if it's not actually playing anything, my monitor never turns off and my PC never goes to sleep.

Any idea why? There's no other programs running in the background and if MusicBee is not open, the monitor turns off and the PC goes to sleep as normal.


Bug Reports / Spectrum analyser visual bug in compact player (3.2.6592)
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:09:28 PM »
I can't replicate this bug 100% of the time, but it seems to happen at least 50% of the time.

When you move the divider between the left and right sides of the compact player UI over to the right, it causes part of the right side of the spectrum analyser display to freeze, which remains stuck even if you stop the song.

GIF: -

Could we possibly get an option to hide this button please?.....

I've clicked it by accident twice already (EDIT - make that three times) when I'm clicking on album art to expand the view and see the track list, which then clears my "now playing" list and starts that album playing. Given that I can double-click on album art to achieve the same thing, it has no real positives for me, but being able to accidentally click on it is definitely a negative.


Also, is there a way to move the album art back to the right in the expanded track list view?

This is what I'm talking about: -

I've already clicked it a couple of times by mistake, so I'd like to get rid of it but I can't find the option.


Excellent, thanks! :)

Bug Reports / [FIXED] Album art alignment changes with non-square art
« on: April 06, 2017, 11:18:42 PM »
I have some MP3 files that have rectangular art embedded into them. If I play one of those files, the art is aligned to the bottom of the track information box like this: -

However, if I quit MusicBee and restart it, the art is then aligned at the top of the box, like this: -

When I press play to continue playing the file, the art stays aligned at the top of the box. If I open a different file, then go back and open the original file with the rectangular art, the art is aligned at the bottom of the box again.

Up until a couple of beta versions ago, the art would always align at the bottom of the box, no matter what, which is how I believe it should work.

Thanks! :)

Cos I don't see why this behaviour would be intentional and if it's not intentional then wouldn't it be a bug?
