Re: Calculate Cover Size 1.5 - Updated 03/05/2010

Groovy script. Build it and they will come! Since this script is strictly for utility (cleaning up the library art tags) and the data has no permanent value in the track tag, I don't want to alter the file and file's timestamp for it. Besides relying on timestamps for library maintenance and harddri...

Reduce album art when syncing or converting

Consider downsizing album art of a track file when syncing to an iPod or converting to a lower bitrate. Album art in my library are anywhere from 600x600 to 1000x1000 resolution, which adds a megabyte or more to the file size. Flac and hi-res graphics is great for my Home Theatre PC, but not for an ...

Rip/Convert when Send To>Email

Since the average file size of tracks in my library is slowly getting larger, especially when using .flac, it would seem logical that the right-click Send To submenu would include a way to reduce that file size when exporting to email. Add "Email" option under Folder (Rip/Convert) or a "Rip/Convert"...

Re: Random "Access Violation" errors in MM4

I was getting "Access Violations" once in a while but now I get them on a regular basis. Similar to user svburke, it seems to randomly happen immediately after editing a single tag of a single track directly within the library listing, not the Properties dialog, when attempting to click (step) off o...

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implicatio

Ugh! Sorry but MM4 has gotten me spooked again. Regarding my item 2 above, the Tools>Options>Volume Leveling dialog does not have a toggle to enable/disable permanently leveling tracks. It only has "Level ripped tracks" with a value of "Per Track" or "per Album". No checkbox there to turn the featur...

Re: Involved People Node v1.4

Oh, and do you know how to flush the "Involved People" plugin's cache? I've been cleaning up that tag throughout my library but a lot of the old data is still listed in the Involved People media tree even though the data doesn't actually exist in the track files. It appears to repopulate the list wh...

Re: Involved People Node v1.4

Cool! Glad to see someone's willing to tweak it and that my suggestions may help. I already have the "/" where you suggested the "," because some of these musicicans have six different roles. Not as sweet as seeing separate list of all of the Harmonica players. And sheez... I can't even play one ins...

Re: Auto-organize sometimes uses only first rule, moving fil

Thanks. Immediately after your reply and per your suggestion, I made Auto-Organize rule tweaks to avoid any overlap. I made no rule changes since. Seemed to be the cure... until today. Totally random. When MM4 started up, it grabbed the first rule in the list and used the file naming and path in tha...

Re: Involved People Node v1.4

I was about to suggest to the MM folks to support the ";" separator for the Involved People tag but this is better as I can include the "role", too. Pretty dang cool! This should be integrated into MM. Now my social life is going to be negatively impacted even more, having to enter/maintain all this...

Auto-organize sometimes uses only first rule, moving files

I have 7 rules defined for Auto-organize and I have MM4 automatically scanning/organizing on startup. The order of the rules is critical as the last rule handles everything else after the previous 6 rules (exceptions). Sometimes MM4 uses only the first rule and ignores the rest, thus begins to move/...

Re: "Album Artist" Tag

Unless I'm not "getting it", this seems a minor inconvenience. I like when MM autofills the Album Artist using the Artist info as 98% of my albums are artist-specific. In the other 2%, I sort (or find or whatever) by Album, select all the tracks in that Album and edit them, putting "various artists"...

Re: Cover_2 Rename Issue

I am updating existing album art to higher resolution images, a little at a time. I save to both the tag and the file, then delete the link inside the tracks Properties (which would be nice if there was an option to not automatically add a link). At some point later, I must run a Windows search for ...
