hi

may i know if I can preserve timestamp of my audio files downloading covers(album arts) lyrics and replaygain ?

I have used for example volume analysis (it should be replaygain i guess ) for some tracks , and it changed my timestamp

I have many smart playlist to organize my library

I have these settings , I can not find the volume analysis (should be the same of foobar replaygain ,but foobar2000 change always the timestamp , there is no option to preserve it


thanks

If you right-click a file(s) you can choose SendTo: Volume Analysis.

I'm unaware that saving an album art image or lyrics as embedded tags would modify your file date even when "don't update file modification time when saving tags" is checked, not using that option myself--you have tried doing it, and is that indeed what happens?

Off-topic I noticed your auto-tagging lyrics sources; I would recommend adding Genius to those which I find grabs the majority of searches I do.  I'm assuming you are using the Lyrics Reloaded plugin maintained by frankz.

Hi gaiastar, by auto-tagging I just meant that section of the Tags(2) prefs, I know you probably don't want to auto-SAVE any lyrics into a file without checking them first.  You can add several more sources to your lyrics options (like Genius) by installing the Lyrics Reloaded plugin from the Add-On section of website.  They will add to, not replace, the existing built-in ones.

Why not try using MB to find lyrics for a "test" file that doesn't contain any embedded lyrics, and then go ahead and embed them through the MusicBee interface and see if your file dates are changed.  That's the way to answer your question for sure.

Apparently MiniLyrics is the only site/application that has synced lyrics. Look in the plugin section of the forum as someone create a MiniLyrics plugin.  That might do what you want as far as synced lyrics is concerned.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.

are you refering to here or here

Both of your links are the same.

The minilyrics program will (I believe) install a plugin for MusicBee that will allow it to know what songs are being played and automatically search for the lyrics.

There is also a MB plugin called minilyrics helper that adds functionality within MB.

Thank you, but it's not possible. The plugin can only retrieve lyrics from open web sites that print the lyrics in text as part of the site's HTML.  Minilyrics doesn't do any of that..
