Portable Devices / Re: Duplicate songs from Playlists
« on: February 18, 2022, 07:26:47 PM »
I'm struggling here!

The M3U files are indeed where they're supposed to be when I looked with file explorer: that is "Samsung Memory Card\music\playlist", where the storage path is set in the Music Bee settings. My previous question was whether this folder was an appropriate place for them to be, or whether they should be somewhere else on the memory card for Media Monkey to be able to read them.

My Media Monkey Android is set to scan for any files in "Samsung Memory Card (all)", so I assume that it SHOULD be picking them up?
When I go to select/add the specific folder within the Samsung Memory Card, just to try it out, the files don't show up on Media Monkey, I assume that's because they're not songs, so don't show up there?

I tried ticking "Use relative paths" to see if that would make a difference, but no.

Here's an image of the playlist settings I never sent last time:

Also, on the MusicBee Wifi Sync, there's a Full Sync and a Playlist Sync option.
If my configurations on MusicBee are ONLY for a playlist sync anyways, there shouldn't really be a difference between those two for me, should there?

Sorry about the long post!
But again, thanks for your help guys!

My playlist path is "music\playlist\".

I hope this works/helps.

So Frankz, where *should* my playlist files be? In their own folder?

Well, all the songs from the playlists are, but the playlists aren't, if that makes sense (I may not be using the proper lingo, don't quite understand how it functions!).
I've always assumed the playlists worked thanks to M3U files?

So everything's there in "Tracks" and "Artists" sections, but the playlists aren't.

Yet the sync was done with the "synchronise playlists" options on MusicBee.

It failed a few times, but now all good. Could just be my internet connection.

Having that set up now feels good. However, my playlists aren't there?
In the "playlist" section of Media Monkey.

Is this to do with the M3U files?

Seems to be working so far.

Quite slow though and I have to leave, so will keep on trying later, and update you then.

Some songs from the playlists have been transferred, but so far Media Monkey has only got them in the artists/song sections, the playlist configurations are non-existent, but maybe it needs to finish first.

Thanks for your help so far by the way!

Aha, well now I feel stupid haha.
No, I don't have the app, my phone was still plugged in, so I guess it was still doing it via USB.

Just downloaded it and have started the sync.

Right, so I've been trying to get it to sync since yesterday, and it's copying some stuff, but I keep getting the error message "Synchronisation has temporarily stalled for 3-10 minutes while the device processes current file op...(erations?)".

I looked at some other posts about this, tried ticking the "allow wifi sync for android devices", tried "unticking the "delete files that are not on the auto-sync" option, but it keeps coming up with it.

Any ideas?

Right, I see what you mean!
Will give that a shot and see how it goes, thanks.

I tried some stuff but a very long time ago.

My library's bigger than the space available on my phone's SD card.
Doesn't that mean I'd have to transfer files manually and selectively?

I was thinking of ticking the "synchronise playlists" option, and transferring other files manually?

Hello!

Was trying to get my head around syncing MusicBee with my android phone.
I use MediaMonkey on my phone, and if I sync a playlist, the songs on that playlist would then be doubled in the album in question.

"Your selections here are additive. If you choose to sync some playlists and some folders, MusicBee will sync all the files in the playlists AND all the files in the folders."

I believe that's what this line is referring to.

I've spent the best part of 4/5 years now without playlists, but want to try and find a way to make it work.

Any suggestions?

Only thing I can think of is switching my MusicBee to MediaMonkey, although I'm not sure even that would solve the problem..

Hey guys,
Thanks Phred, unticking those seems to have worked. Shame it has to be this way, but not that big an issue. Thanks for the help!
Thanks for replaying Vincent, the above seems to have worked though!
Cheers everyone

No plugins active.
The song that just started though (and re-started), is now "date modified" to a minute ago today.
In Tags (2), Artwork and Lyrics have "auto-retrieve" and "save without prompt" ticked actually.
Do you think that might be it?

Questions / MusicBee updating every song after playing
« on: February 15, 2020, 11:27:03 AM »
Hey guys,

After every song plays, MusicBee updates the song for some reason and I have the little notification "1 file has been updated" on the bottom. Sometimes it does it with a whole album.
I don't have "continuously monitor library" ticked or anything I know of. It's just a curious little happening, and I don't know why or how to stop it.

The thing is, most of the time, when a next track starts, it starts for just about a second, then re-starts. That is the annoying thing.
Any ideas on this?


Thanks!

I seem to have fixed the drag issue through AVG.
But any help on relocating my playlist folder?

Also, has the new update stopped me from dragging files directly into the interface library..?

That could happen if you're running as sn administrator

Hah, I had this problem a few months ago, and sorted it already with your help actually Psychoadept.
So something in the last week since I last dragged and dropped a folder has changed, and that's either the patch, or maybe installing AVG, could that have changed it?
