Questions / Re: Tagging by sound signature not working
Last post by sveakul on Today at 10:16:52 PM   |  Started by Satyrical
Can confirm it doesn't work.

I used Picard from musicbrainz, and sure enough there is a version of fpcalc.exe in the folder, so... I tried copying this one in the musicbee folder ?

Still doesn't work, at all. I tested a popular song (Green Day - American Idiot) in Picard, it instantly found it. With Musicbee ? Keep telling me there's no match for artist.

So i suspect that musicbee isn't even attempting to use sound signature at all, and instead search for "unknown artist" which will of course get no results.

I just d/l Picard Portable 2.44 and can also confirm your results--the songs that would not ID with fpcalc in MusicBee, DO identify in Picard using fpcalc.

Some communication needed between fpcalc.exe and its MusicBrainz sound signature database has been broken somewhere along the line in one of the MusicBee updates.  This should probably be moved to the "Bugs" forum.

Questions / Remove playlist tracks from main collection
Last post by TwoTonYeti on Today at 08:55:45 PM   |  Started by TwoTonYeti
Hi all,

I mistakenly imported all of my playlists into my main collection. Is there a way to compare a playlist to my main collection and auto-remove the playlist tracks from the main collection?

I realize that I could simply "delete from library" all of the tracks in my collection and then rescan the specific songs I want in my main library back into MusicBee, but I would like to preserve my Play Count info if possible.

Any pointers on advanced tag search/replacing or tag copying would be appreciated.

Thank you for your response.


I've disabled those options and unfortunately the issue continues:
Here are new 3 video captures where I use an Autohotkey script to highlight the (keyboard and) mouse button presses:
1.wmv
2.wmv
3.wmv
Videos 1+2 are while no track is playing, and 3 is while a track is playing.
In all three videos:
I simply do a search, then I doubleclick on a matched album to start playback, and I quickly press the 'forward' mouse sidebutton ('XButton2' in the video) once, and then the search results are lost.
Also, the options you suggested are disabled of course.


If my new video captures still aren't helpful, then, yes, please, it would be great to make a debug version .

I tried the update as well but there is nothing changed. I downloaded MusicBrainz Picard which as I understand it should also be using the same utility for digital fingerprinting, and it was able to identify the songs rather quickly.

I don't know how much good it does, but deleted tracks do generally still show up in the history nodded.

Thanks Steven for taking a look at this.  After updating, I re-did the test with 5 files that cover several types of music but that should be commonly known:  John Hiatt - Slow Turning, Lacuna Coil - Our Truth, Liz Phair - Polyester Bride, The Runaways - Cherry Bomb, and Zero 7 - Pop Art Blue.

There was a difference in that this time the analysis window stayed open with the results, which it did not before.  However, all 5 files returned "Unable to identify the track from its digital sound signature."  So I'm left with the unfortunate conclusion that the plugin, if it's now interfacing properly with MusicBee, "ain't worth much" as far as track identification.

I encourage others to give it a try though and report their results.  Maybe I'm just picking the wrong horses.

(This in reference to Send To -> Folder -> Move/Copy Files to organised folder, right)

Yes. I generally only have two or three that I use, but the list can get unwieldy when experimenting with the exceptions rules since it keeps the history.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Proposal: Extend 'Genre' hierarchy with 'Subgenre'
Last post by zkhcohen on Today at 04:22:39 PM   |  Started by jistme
it will log a lot of info to the error log so could you just use it on the Classical Piano playlist ie. click twice on it so you see 2 sets of numbers
Send me the new info at the end of the log. You will probably need to zip it

I suggest you replace it straight away with the normal version so the error log doesnt fill up

I can't replicate the issue with this version. I have tried switching back and forth between 3.4.7567 and 3.4.7566.33864 to confirm, and the issue returns immediately when reverting to the older version.

Was something else changed in this version besides debugging?
