Questions / What counts toward Most Plyaed Artists in Library Statistics?
« on: February 21, 2022, 09:51:06 PM »
This question also applies to the Top 25 Most Played auto-playlist.

I almost never listen to music by searching up a specific track.
Instead I shuffle some playlist or the entire library, then skip a track if it's not what I want to listen to.

What are the conditions for an artist's/track's value to be incremented?
If they just counted total hits a track/artist has received, the "Most Played" lists wouldn't be very meaningful for me, because they would include all those skips and could as well be called "Top artists the shuffle algorithm chooses" or something haha.
OTOH if it were similar to where a track only counts if half of it's been played then it would work much better.

Questions / Re: Issues with auto-organizing and auto-syncing.

Auto-sync is a little bit of a misnomer.  It will only sync automatically, ie without your telling it to, if you have the settings set to "automatically synchronize when the device is connected" and it will only sync right when it finds the connection; it doesn't keep the sync updated with later changes.  You still have to use the Synchronize command for that.
Can it be done automatically whenever a change is made to a synced playlist?
I'm trying to keep a virtual drive updated to then propagate the changes to an Android phone.

Questions / Re: Auto-tag dry run

Auto-downloading tags:  I can't make that work for me, so I'm wondering how you do that?!

Tools - Tagging Tools - Auto-Tag by Track - Identify Track and Update Tags - check "identify the track using the digital sound signature."

Am I the only one who got fed up with auto tagging features of multiple programs messing up their files and now is a die-hard 100% manual tagger? There is so much trash in the auto tagging databases it is not worth it to me to even bother with them. Wikipedia, etc + manual entering bulk / individual tags is my preferred choice. I also only use MB tagging for small changes.

That is the whole point of this post. I want it to show me what it's about to do so I can make sure there is no trash about to be inserted and, if there is any, deselect it.

Whoops, my bad. In fact, I have tried scrolling haha. Must've missed it. Thank you.

Questions / [SOLVED] See which songs are in playlists
« on: July 06, 2021, 05:16:00 AM »
I use playlists pretty extensively and have always wanted a way to know which songs in the Library are in playlists (or more specifically are not in any playlists). Right now to accomplish that I can Right-click - Search - Locate in Playlist for every song, but that's very cumbersome. It would be nice if I could see that information at a glance as one of the fields in the Library:

Questions / Auto-tag dry run
« on: July 05, 2021, 04:11:39 AM »
I would like to be able to see what tag changes are about to be made and checkmark the ones I actually want instead of having them be applied as soon as they're found. Kinda like with the Find and Replace tool. This could eliminate so many unintentional changes.

Questions / Re: Moving folders in Musicbee

Depending on your definition of "bulk" you can also drag folders around in the computer node in the left-hand navigation panel.
Right-click to enable moving if it doesn't work at first.

Thank you, this worked instantly. Beautiful.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Multiple hotkeys for a single action

I think I've found a solution (for the spacebar thingy). Edit -> preferences -> Hotkeys -> set Playback: Play/Pause to Space. I'm feeling pretty stupid now xD
Another useful hotkey (for me): set Playback: Play Now to Enter.

Questions / Re: song encoding recognized incorrectly
« on: July 02, 2019, 07:06:14 PM »
That works, thank you!
I understand that it has nothing to do with MusicBee, but are they being reported incorrectly because the metadata is corrupt/wrong? I re-encoded most of them myself with ffmpeg (which uses Lame) with something like
ffmpeg -i "file.flac" -c:v copy -q:a 0 "file.mp3"
Is there anything I can edit in the command so that newly re-encoded files are reported correctly?

Also sorry for the late reply, I just noticed this  :-[

Questions / song encoding recognized incorrectly
« on: June 20, 2019, 08:31:38 AM »
Somehow half the mp3s that I know are encoded in v0 are shown as anywhere from v5 to v10. How does MusicBee check the encoding, and why would this  be the case? Using 3.3.7109 (latest at the time of the post).
Sample file:

In the auto-tag window (after selecting multiple files, right-clicking and going auto-tag by track -> identify), selecting only 1st two ticks (as in the title) and hitting proceed, I get a warning that existing tags will be overwritten, and the "update blank fields only" tick disappears. If I cancel the warning, the entire window freezes (loading cursor icon), and I can only cancel the auto-tag operation.

How can I identify based on music signature while also not updating existing fields?

Edit: forget to mention, I'm using the portable version 3.2.6902 (non-beta).

One option I can think of is using AutoHotKey to map the space key (or any other key) to the shortcut inside MB using the IfWinActive function. But then you'd need to somehow limit it to only be usable if no text field is in focus (otherwise you won't be able to insert whitespace when typing) and no menu entry/window is open.

I think the same thing was requested over 2 years ago, yet is somehow still not a thing. It's the way it works in literally all music players I've tried. That includes iTunes, Foobar2K, WMP, Zune app and even most video players like PotPlayer, VLC, Splash etc. It's the most intuitive way of doing it, yet when I press Space in MB it does something weird and jumps to a random song for god knows what reason..
