Copying Artist tag to Album Artist

I have a massive number of transcoded m4a files that I mirrored from my FLAC collection - the only problem is that I accidentally tagged them all in such a way that the Album Artist is called 'Various' (stupid script bug). Transcoding them again will take a week or more. Is there a way I can get Med...

Re: Updating multiple albums with cover art automatically

...you could use Album Art Downloader XUI: http://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/ This is by far the best album art downloader out there. You can configure it to generate a folder.jpg or whatever you want in each subdirectory, and it tells you the sizes of the existing artwork if you want to mak...

Re: Other media players that will sync properly with iPods?

I've heard rumours that the dock connector is better than the headphone jack...I can't tell the difference myself, but I'm sure some people can. That said, I've looked at your other post about how you don't want to maintain second library...personally, I can't stand my iPod and I don't like closed f...

Re: Other media players that will sync properly with iPods?

Are you sure you want lossless on your iPod? The iPod audio quality isn't really good enough to merit lossless, and it's huge besides. (This coming from a certified lossless loonie with a 4000-album collection.)

Re: Audiophile digital music setup

I can't believe noone's suggested it so far...I've had a Slimdevices Squeezebox for almost two years now, and I swear by it 100%. It's also a significant amount less expensive than the Sonos stuff, and has great server software to boot. I contributed some of the original Perl FLAC code to the projec...

Re: what songs give you the chills?

Having been to their concert recently, I've relistened to all of their albums - and so have the following contribution to this thread: The Flaming Lips / Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots / 09 - Do You Realize?? http://www.clevver.com/music/video/28881/the-flaming-lips-do-you-realize-full-version-vide...

Two bugs: semicolons in title tag, multi-char field delim

Bug 1: If an AAC track has a semicolon in the title tag, only the part of the tag that is after the last semicolon appears in the MM user interface. The track in question is on Yes - Close To The Edge; track 1 has a title tag of "Close To The Edge (The Solid Time Of Change; Total Mass Retain; I Get ...

Re: MM just started hanging on startup

Well, I was hoping for guidance as to where to look for the .ini file...I found it, returned the field to ";", and voila, it runs! I suspect this is a bug?

MM just started hanging on startup

Having used MM for a few weeks now, I found a configuration that I wanted to change (the multiple value separator, in this case - I didn't want ; to be the separator, so I changed it to something that isn't in my collection, {}) and restarted MM. It has not since gotten past the startup screen. I re...

Re: Album Artist for VA rips

But what's the name of the tag used for Album Artist for m4a files? I set Album Artist to 'Various' after I import it into the library, but I want that to be the default if the tracks are all in the same directory, the same way that the Album Artist is set to the artist of a single-artist album auto...

Album Artist for VA rips

I listen to a lot of mixed complations, and it's always frustrating to me that even though the tracks are all in the same directory, when I import them into the library, it assumes that they are independent - and the only way to group them together is by setting the Album Artist tag to something com...

Definitely not the problem that I'm having. I won't hijack your thread further, but will post something more comprehensive later.

Re: Syncing ratings

I'm also having problems syncing rating (and playcounts for that matter) from my iPod Classic 80gb back to MM. I'm also on XP. I've been unable to sync anything back to my music library - my iPod does show the playcounts incremented and the ratings changed, but they won't go back into my library. Is...
