I've been syncing my phone for a while using USB and found this wifi feature/app today. Seems to work for the most part, but doesn't detect the music already on my phone so it can skip syncing it. I only ever sync my "recently added" playlist. On the app, I chose sync playlists, and it copied everything over to my SD card. Then I added some more music to my PCs library, which got added to my recently added playlist. When I went back to the phone to sync again, it copied over the some (not all) of the new stuff, then it appeared to start to copy over the rest of the songs on the playlist, which had already been transferred previously. I don't see any duplicates on my phone, so maybe something else was going on, but either way it was taking just as long as the initial large sync was taking. Is this normal? I have reverse-sync unchecked in the app by the way.

I keep getting the error "file not matched in musicbee" when syncing... I am not sure if it is every single file or just a subset of them; I have noticed some ratings carrying over from GoneMad to MusicBee, but the playcounts are definitely not going up; so I'm honestly not sure if these are ratings I already did in MusicBee but just forgot (although I don't feel that's the case).

My first guess as to what might be causing is an issue is having "replace artist tag with Display artist", but I've noticed the issue occurring even on artists who match the display artist, so I don't think that's it.

What else should I be checking that's causing it? I looked through this thread but none of the other solutions seem to apply.

An update on above: if I choose "Sync Preview", over and over, with only 'Reverse Sync" selected, the number of files it lists that won't sync changes each time. Many files are consistently there, while some only show up sometimes.

What's the deal?

I can confirm it is completely broken.

1. Syncing issues does not occur with the files themselves, when adding or removing files.

2. I did an experiment: Rated a single file, and clicked sync preview over and over. Sometimes it would sync, sometimes it wouldn't. When it showed that it would sync, I clicked Sync, and immediately said sync failed.

who is responsible for this software?
Steven is responsible for the software. And he does this as a hobby, in his own spare time, and asks for nothing in return.

When he says he won't be able to help, it could be because he truly doesn't know how to fix it. Or he doesn't have the time to fix it. Or any other reason he may have for not addressing it.

Keep in mind a) how much you paid for the software, and b) no one is forcing you to continue using it.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

wow frankz, you're an asshole.

I appreciate phred answering the question. I was asking because I didn't understand why Steven was responding; Steven made it sound like he wasn't the person who wrote this software (which I was already confused about), so I was trying to find out who did, if I was posting about this in the wrong place, I don't know.

I still don't understand why you advertise that you have a feature you don't have, though?

And I did have to waste money on GoneMad Music Player, so yeah, maybe update the topic post to state you aren't going to support this software anymore.

I believe this functionality works fine for most people so I wont be changing the status of it.
When issues arise, there are 3 parties involved - MusicBee, Gonemad and Android.
What I have found in the past is that the Gonemad developer while being a helpful person in general, I feel does tend to brush off issues with answers that dont involve any further digging on his part or willingness to investigate working around and solving an issue. Perhaps he has felt he already knows the answers and its not worth his time.
And Android itself as far as I am concerned is a complete mess for storage functionality and has poor documentation.
So unless an issue is something I feel is likely to be caused by MusicBee, I am not willing to spend time where I am banging my head against a brick wall

...

Some quotes from you:

I can confirm it is completely broken.
Which is an incorrect statement and it sounds accusing.
If you have read the thread which I assume you have, you know it works for others.

Quote

That brief post triggered me in a negative way also.
It could the very economic use of words and choosing the word 'responsible'.
If you have read the thread which I assume you have, you know who is putting his time and effort in all this.
To me it sounded accusing again, and you perhaps 'playing dumb' here.

Quote
wow frankz, you're an asshole.
He replied in a humorous way that probably saved you from some harsher replies from others who took your posts/assumed attitude in the same way.

Maybe you should read back how you may have been coming across on the forum until now.

Hello,
I stopped using the Wifi sync some time ago because it was really unreliable and slow with my weak wifi signal (it worked fine when I was near the router), now my situation with that has changed and I decided to set it up again. I sucessfully did the first time setup, but it looks like my songs aren't properly scanned/the Android app doesn't use naming preset from MusicBee on PC. It always starts copying all of the songs, instead of just those that are missing. I made sure my devices are set up properly on PC. Is it broken right now, or am I just missing something?

DEVICE: COL-L29
ANDROID 10
APP VERSION: 2.0.2

It's not broken right now and hasn't changed for some time.  If you made sure your devices are set up properly on the PC I'm not sure what you could be missing.

Usually this would mean it's not set up properly on the PC, but you've checked.  Strange.

Is "as configured in Musicbee" checked in the app?
