Re: GPM credentials

I don't understand how can one access [Devices&Services>GPM] without logging into the GPM account at first?? Sorry ... delusion ... it has been gone for just 10 minutes, and I have already forgotten how it worked. :oops: I thought it worked like this prior to 1st sign on: https://www.dropbox.com/s/...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

I unplugged the Internet before altering one of these playlists, to test how MM5 reacted when unable to auto-sync to GPM. The error message is not very user-friendly. https://www.dropbox.com/s/nbmd1r6ryvse46z/MM5%20error%20message%20when%20GPM%20unavailable.png?dl=0 Also you could consider tuning? I...

GPM credentials

I greatly prefer the new method by which you handle GPM sign in and approval: improved security; I no longer have to enter my Google password into MM easier; I am typically already logged into my Google account, and in the new method, I can authenticate without having to sign in again, and neither d...

Re: Drag and drop file to Media Tree location does not work as well did in MM4 [#15287]

Version 2178 .... previously reported issues are improved. #1. When dragging a block of files, the UI shows just the track which was under the mouse cursor moving, and it also has a track count, showing how many tracks are to be affected .... This is not as clear as MM4, which showed the whole block...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

Otherwise such a playlists are synced bi-directionally. i.e. changing them on GPM updates them in MM>GPM group and vice-versa. What triggers the sync in the GPM->MM direction? ie. if I use MM to alter one of these playlists, I now see that you auto-sync the change to the GPM copy. ... ie. there is ...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

So it does not overwrite your MM5 playlists with GPM data. The playlists under "Google Play Music" group are only the playlists scanned/imported from GPM. And you can uncheck them on the 'Library Content' page if you don't wish to sync them back to GPM. I have just noticed that the playlist group (...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

I have my GPM sync configured to just push GPM track|album links into my MM db, ie. no new track downloads, no sync GPM metadata to MM, nothing checked the D&S>GPM>AllTracks LibraryContent tab .... so why is the sync copying my MM playlists into my GPM library? .... why is it compulsory? ... it is ...

Re: Question re MM5 Media Share config

I don't think so, because as I wrote in my "EDIT" post later the UDN wouldn't be changed. So MMA would still see it as the same sync server instance. We could create a completely new server instance when importing MM4 database, but this is not quite logical and expected behaviour. e.g. currently MM...

Re: Question re MM5 Media Share config

Yes, if they have the same IP port and runs on the same machine then they are in conflict . So you should either run only one instance of MM4/MM5 (preferable and the most expected user-case ? ) -- or rename the MM5 server and assign another port to it. Then you can run both MM4 and MM5 instances of...

Hmmm, that is what I thought also and why I added https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15684 Sorry, I didn't read your Mantis ticket ... yes, that's roughly it. The other thing that I would add to what you have written, comes from the fact that these are summary fields for a group (ie. an...

Re: UI configurability of new MM5 features is disappointing [#15684]

From what I understand you you are asking to allow customization of those views like Art and Details in order to have Desired info Show? If yes, what do you suggest on how it should be done, per Media Type? I don't disagree which what you are saying, but that is not what I was requesting. I was spe...

Re: Tree Node Extension Showing "Artists" In "Album Artists" Node

FWIIW I checked by MM5 db from a..j, and I could not see any incident of this problem. I would be really pissed off if it did happen, as per my rant Is there anything specific about the albums which have bleed artist tags into the albumartist index? ... ie. you ripped them with MM5, or downloaded th...

UI configurability of new MM5 features is disappointing [#15684]

I really like the artist and album browsing facilities which are new with MM5. These don't seem to have a consistent name, so I don't know how to refer to them; is Grid view from sub-nodes such as Artists, AlbumArtists or Albums, and is Browser view from top level nodes. It generally looks like this...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

MM5 version 2175: I retested downloads from GPM I worked around the UI stability previously reported by switching away from Album&Tracks view mode. View mode, with Column Browser filtering to Source="link", and within that to AlbumArtist & Album, gives a useful view, and has a stable UI when downloa...
