Re: need a simple, very basic script

Hello not-a-DJ, I am not denying that sucb a script could be useful, but it seems to me you are trying to use the Now Playing list / window for a purpose it wasn't designed for. When creating a new (non-Auto) playlist I would: Preperarion a) Edit->New Playlist. (give it a memorable name, Let's say N...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.13.1 - Updated 03/02/2013

I finally decided to bite the bullet and fully utilize the extra functionality offered by MM4's SDB.Database.GetAutoPlaylistQuery() automation function. This returns the SQL query used for a specified AutoPlaylist and is new to MM4. In particular it can be used to perform SQL queries on AutoPlaylist...

Re: How to translate scripts/plugins?

There is also the problem of conciseness. A scriptwriter working in a familiar language would typically choose the shortest phrase possible for an option name. Good grammer might well be forsaken as a result. Faced with dubious grammer, any attempt at automatic translation might well be inaccurate. ...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.12 - Updated 30/01/2013

... eventually, every chain of Similar-To's leads to the Beatles. Says it all really :D The only way around this would be to set up a static Default Playlist without any Beatles tracks and set the Limit To Default Playlist option. (Either that or use the Ratings threshold along with downgrading the...

ScrobblerDJ V2.12

Thank you for testing that Mcow,

ScrobblerDJ V2.12 uses PlaylistInsertTracks to trigger the OnNowPlayingModified event (MM4version only)

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.11 - Updated 16/01/2013

I don't have anything hanging off of that trigger, but after a quick search of the forums I have changed the method used to add tracks to NowPlaying.

Mcow, could you see whether the changed version (ScrobblerDJ V2.12) solves your problem please?

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.11

Oh the joys of discovering MediaMonkey's idiosyncrasies. It seems that when performing SQL Queries of the MM4 database, the Songs.LastTimePlayed field needs Timezone correction before comparing it with the vbs now() value. (As dealt with in V2.8 onwards) But when the same data is accessed via the au...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.10

Ah, you've caught me on the hop. Give me a couple of days, all the recent changes have drained my enthusiasm. The latest version of the timecode handling needs testing in a non GMT+0 timezone, and after that there is a minor aspect of the Default Playlist handling that could do with improving. But n...

ScrobblerDJ V2.10

ScobblerDJ V2.8 (and later 2.9) relied heavily on a multitude of utc2local() and/or local2utc() calls spread widely throughout the script. Apart from the overheads of these extra calls, the prospect of maintaining both "live" MM4 specific code and commented out MM3 equivalent code in so many differe...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.7

Thank you very much for testing that SchulA, it's a relief to have finally identified the problem after so many false guesses. For anyone wondering why SchulA tested V2.9, ScrobblerDJ V2.8 added code to convert between MM4's UTC timecodes and the current time which is TimeZone specific ScrobblerDJ V...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.7

I think that the problem is due to the timecode format changes between MM3 and MM4. It hasn't been affecting me personally because my current local time is the same as UTC (the new format in MM4). SchulA has the problem due to being in a different time zone. I have asked SchulA to test a new version...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.7

I've had a quick look and it's pretty baffling why it's not recognising that Manu Chao and Mano Negra have been played recently - will look again later today (have to go out now). As for why they like each other, with the default Similarity Rating of 65 Last.FM returns Mano Negra as the only similar...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.7

SchulA, I am really grasping at straws here, but do the affected songs have multiple contributing artists? Given two artists A and B and a pair of songs A by just Artist A and AB by both Artists, the script will happily queue song AB after song A if it recognises that Artist B has not been played fo...

ScrobblerDJ V2.7

I was hoping you would come back saying Ignore Composers solved the problem so I could issue V2.7 without worry. Anyway, I have been searching through the script for Ignore Composers type issues, and discovered that without Ignore Composers there was a potential to look for similar artists to the Co...

Re: ScrobblerDJ V2.6

I hadn't heard of either Manu Chao or Mano Negra before, but after a quick look on the internet and discovering that Manu Chao was the frontman (and presumably a songwriter) for Mano Negra, I think the evidence is piling up for turning the Ignore Composers option on. I left it as an option so that S...
