Bug Reports / Re: [1.3] Using "split" in the artist splitter doesn't split the artists anymore
Last post by Fivda on January 21, 2021, 08:37:58 PM   |  Started by Fivda
, is not supported for splitting
I mean, not anymore at least, because it used to be and I found it pretty useful. I imagine there's no way to let it behave that way?

Try using a semi-colon
I see, but i don't really see why standard commas shouldn't be able split artists anymore... I don't really see myself replacing multiple artist names with ;'s instead of commas, they're far from aesthetic, especially when the general artist/composer field is meant as a display title when you're using said splitter

Clicking on "Split" does not seperate all artists with linebreak when there's a comma anymore.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Use Google as source for Artist Biography photos

Read this thread to find out why Google is not and mostly likely cannot be used.

MusicBee Wishlist / Use Google as source for Artist Biography photos
Last post by darkred on January 21, 2021, 03:58:48 PM   |  Started by darkred
My MusicBee layout is like this: https://i.imgur.com/WB9i94d.jpg

Quite often, as I play various tracks,
the accompanying photo in 'Artist Biography' is irrelevant.
(but, the biography text itself is always the correct one.)

The albums are always properly tagged (album, artist, genre, year).

On this comment I see that MB uses last.fm (or wikipedia as fallback) for artist biography
and fanart.tv (or spotify as fallback) for artist thumbnails.


Could it be possible MB to use Google as main source for artist photos?
Maybe a search with criteria like" Artist + album + genre + album_year ?
I believe it would bring more strict results, matching exactly the artist.

Thank you

Bug Reports / main panel - albums don't get re-sorted on tag change
Last post by darkred on January 21, 2021, 03:06:07 PM   |  Started by darkred
My MusicBee layout is as follows: https://i.imgur.com/WB9i94d.jpg

In the Main panel the albums are sorted: by Year / Album
Also, for the bottom part of the Column Browser I have a virtual tag ('Virtual2' ) to sort albums by:  ( year ) album  .
And, I have set in: Preferences | Library | 'monitored folders' group ---> "continuously monitor".

The issue is that if I rightclick an album and modify its "Year" tag value,
then the albums in the main panel are not automatically re-sorted based on the new value
nor when I click elsewhere and then on the band name, or even if I press F5 "Scan folders for new files"
(the bottom part of the column browser is updated ok though).
The only way for the albums to get the new sorting is to close and re-open MusicBee.

Here is a video capture to see what I mean:
(I modify the "Year" tag value of the 3rd album from 2010 to 1990 in order to become 1st )

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Shuffling is not random enough & "repeat one" hotkey needed

1. I would think the developer of this app has adequate knowledge to know how to accomplish this. Perhaps, an algorithm more complicated and complex than the current one will do. I just request that, e.g. from a pool of 5,000 songs, let there not be the same song very frequently. Given that a lot of people have complained about this so far, there is a big portion of users who want improvement to this feature. The autoplaylist thing is great but I want to not completely exclude the same songs, just maybe give it a harder probability rate.
That's not "random."  Giving something that starts out with an equal chance of occurring a higher or lower chance of occurring is the opposite of random.  The "a lot" of people who have complained about it also don't understand what "random" is.

I rate all my tracks and have an autoplaylist that sets a time before they can be played again based on that rating. 3 stars or unrated are 6 months, 3.5 is 3 months, 2.5 is 9, etc.  This is exactly what you're describing as what you want to happen.
