Re: 1236: DistributedCOM errors on Vista 64

I haven't installed the beta build on my new x64 laptop yet, but this is good to know. I somehow *doubt* it will get fixed by MM though, they seem to have enough higher-profile showstoppers to deal with. One can hope though, that Microsoft fixes this as part of Vista SP2 ... which they've been worki...

Re: Force MM to write id3 v2.4 tags

Question for the devs then: I have been trying to figure out how the Mutagen library works - a Python library for manipulating Mp3 metadata ... and found out the hard way that their API seems to "auto convert" everything to 2.4 format. Ie, if I load an MP3 file, and then display its tags ("native fr...

Re: Multiple arists.

I wouldn't recommend using '&' anyway - seems to be asking for trouble. Much of the time when you get CD information from the internet (amazon, freedb, etc), artists that have a conjoined name - such as "Little Anthony and the Imperials" - will come back as "Little Anthony & the Imperials". Note tho...

Re: 1175 Script continues after BeginTransaction/Commit

Nah, this is simply songdata updates - I am running some performance tests and keep running into database lock issues. I will post in a separate thread when I have more information. I'm using a .Net "wrapper" around the SQLite implementation, so the issues could be coming from a conflict between how...

Re: 1175 Script continues after BeginTransaction/Commit

I've searched high and low for an answer to similar woes, but I can't quite *see* what is happening inside MM (or SQLite) to cause the errors that my particular hangup. I'd like to see a working example of ForceCommit. When my app throws a particular type of DB error - 'Error executing SQL statement...

Re: SQL-Viewer 2.3 [Script] 2008-05-15 [MM3]

While I can appreciate the speed and ease of being able to perform direct SQL batch updates - if you are updating a field that is ALSO mirrored in the MP3 file, doesn't that just make your entire library become "unsynchronized"? It seems as if SQL is fast, but the file writes are what takes up the b...

Re: "Synchronize tags" sometimes doesn't

I'm not so sure this has been fixed. It's been a perennial problem on my end, and I definitely do NOT have m4a's... nor are these multi-artist albums in most cases. I do know that 2 artists with oddball names will never sync as well ... there is a band called "1/2 Japanese" and another called "+/-"....

Re: MusicBrainz Tagger [MM3] v1.4 2008-02-08

Multiple tag sources are all well and good, but imo one of the most important features still has to be the ability to selectively apply the tags. It can't just be an all-or-nothing operation. Maybe in 20 years we'll have a single reliable source for artist/song information, but right now it's just a...

Re: Getting active SDBApplication COM object

FindWindow is actually old VB6 era code :-) With .Net it seems you're supposed to now use the Interop libraries or Reflection libraries to get direct access to pointers and running assemblies. Or even Process.GetProcessesByName(). However, with this and other newer languages, the recommendation seem...

Re: MonkeyToys

That was the first thing I tried. Trouble is, MonkeyTools.exe just doesn't work anymore. It says 'failed to install, right click the executable and Run as Administrator'. Not exactly useful since I am on XP, and don't have the UAC issues.

Re: Getting active SDBApplication COM object

Old post somewhat, but I wonder if anyone has an answer on this? In my recent .Net experiments, I have the exact same problem. To wit, if MM is not running when I start my app, when it gets to the "SongsDB.SDBApplication SDB = new SongsDB.SDBApplication();" line it will make a call to startup MediaM...

Re: Genre Finder 3.2 [MM2+3]

No word just yet, at least not via their forums. The guy who wrote the .Net provider library for Last.fm is doing just what I had suggested earlier (no, I didn't give him the idea, just a coincidence!). He makes the end user enter in their own Last.fm registration information in local files before t...

Re: Genre Finder 3.2 [MM2+3]

It looks like you have to register for an API key tied to your individual account, as the developer. But they also want you to agree to their license and terms of use, as well as list the name of the app and describe its functionality. It would seem Last.fm is trying to go the route of something lik...

Re: Genre Finder 3.2 [MM2+3]

So, because I am impatient and want to futz around with the MM API anyway (or is it more technically the SDK?), I am experimenting with an external .Net application that accesses the database. I program in C# for a living, so VbScript is a bit "painful" for me (too much functionality has to be writt...

Re: MonkeyToys

I'm now the 3rd person requesting how to actually install this! I can guess that most of us should totally ignore the "src" folder, but where do the compiled binaries go? I get an error just trying to run MonkeyTools.exe, but no indication as to what;s wrong. I have all the required .Net libraries o...
