Re: Recently Added Content

I would actually like to see the idea go a bit further and allow the user to drag playlists into the order they want, with an option to automatically sort alphabetically. Then I could have all my podcast playlists together and all my TV playlists together without requiring a parent-child relationship.

Re: Recently Added Content

I mean it could not be done with the current playlist tree and would require recoding the way the tree works. They could easily add a single line of code to sort the playlists Z to A, but that would affect all of your playlists and not just the playlists which are children of 'Recently Added Content...

Re: Recently Added Content

It's not an autoplaylist You are correct. I was thinking of the default 'Recently Added' autoplaylist, but 'Recently Added Content' is a set of normal playlists created when you add files to your library. That option creates a separate playlist for each import action and files added a minute apart ...

Re: Recently Added Content

It's an autoplaylist so the sort order is set in the autoplaylist criteria.

Go to 'Edit Autoplaylist' then the 'Advanced' tab.
Under 'Sort order' change Added 'A..Z' to 'Z..A' and it will sort newest to oldest.

Re: Puzzling case of the reverting semicolons

The forward slash is the required separator for the ID3v2.3 tag standard, so whatever character you choose as the separator within MM it will always be written to the ID3v2.3 tag as a forward slash. ID3v2.4 changed the multi value separator to a 'null' character to fix the problems caused by using t...

1882 (regression): 'Played# less than' does not work [#15262]

In MMW build 1882 if an autoplaylist has a criterion Played# < or <= a number then that criterion is ignored. Setting it to Played# =, >, or >= all work as expected.

I guess it's related to the fix for disc# SQL error noted here: https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15262

The workaround that you have found is the only way to achieve this.

Re: After transferring library, the "added" date is lost

Is the old computer still intact? You could copy the database from the old computer to the new build so you keep all the original added dates then used ZvezdanD's Update Location of Files in Database script to update the database with the new file locations. Information on the database location can ...

Re: Mp3 TAG Editing with MMA

MMA doesn't have any tag editing capabilities yet. If you sync with MMW then MMW writes the tags and sends the changed file back to MMA.

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

That's correct, all the loss of quality is done when the file is created, though as Peke says it's unlikely you'd hear any difference if encoding above 300kbps. Playing the file and changing the metadata doesn't change the audio contents in any way. Whether it is worth ripping the CD or buying the m...

Re: Play video in the same time on 3 android tablets

You could try using TeamViewer QuickSupport on the main tablet and TeamViewer for Remote Control on the other two to mirror the screen. There would be some lag but it's the only option I can think of.

Re: Allocate more than one tag to a file in a category

Multiple values can be assigned to genre, artist, album artist, composer, conductor, and lyricist. The default separator is a semicolon, so if you type "songs for kids; christmas" it would result in two separate genre listings.

Re: Stable Build Releases (??)

I think if you leave the beta program you actually keep the beta version that you've got until the next stable release. To go back to the current stable release after leaving the beta you would have to uninstall and reinstall the app.
