Album Artist view shows Artist [#15982]

I just updated to the latest beta build, v5.0.0.2201 and when opening MM5 again it was immediately clear that the "Album Artist" view actually shows the "Artist" and not the "Album Artist". I am running the DB in MM4 compatibility mode, perhaps that is the reason. I did a database rebuild and moved ...

No rating stars in File Properties dialog [#15929]

I am enjoying using the new MM 5 beta after many years of using MM 4. I applaud all the improvements, but do stumble on a lot of bugs. I'll try to report them as I come upon them. The first one I would like to report is one that is making my life hard. I like to set a rating for my music files, but ...

Re: FLAC album art wrong in Win 10 thumbnail preview [#14772]

I just installed v4.1.22.1880 and I no longer have this issue.

Thank you very much for resolving this, it is much appreciated!

Re: FLAC album art wrong in Windows 10 taskbar thumbnail pre

After doing some more testing I found the following behaviour after deleting the MMCache folder in %temp%: When playing a FLAC file (e.g. double click on a file in the playlist), only the last image in the track's tag gets added to the MMCache in %temp%. The right (first) image is shown in the 'now ...

FLAC album art wrong in Win 10 thumbnail preview [#14772]

After I updated to v4.1.20.1864 of MM I noticed that my FLAC files sometimes show different album art in MM than in the taskbar thumbnail preview. With 'taskbar thumbnail preview' I mean the small window with the playback controls that pops up after hovering my cursor over the MM icon on the taskbar...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2+ [#6156]

Oh my god :o I didn't expect that I would ever see this issue resolved for my outdated iPod classic. I can wholeheartedly confirm that the lyrics are no longer being truncated. This is awesome!

Ludek, thank you so much, you are the best!

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

I'm afraid I already thought of the problem that would arise from the fact that I run MM non-skinned. So I disabled the 'override skin' option when testing (and checked to see which .exe was running in task manager, even thought it is hard to miss the fact that it is skinned or not). I also double-c...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

I'm very sorry to have to report that I still see the lyrics and comments being truncated :( Again, I tried all sort of different scenarios, including the three different d_iPod.dll that I know have. In all the different scenarios it appeared it worked once, and only once, but unfortunately I was no...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

Again, no change in behaviour with this newest d_iPod.dll. I made a new log using this new file. The log and the requested content of the iPod can be found zipped here.

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

Sorry that I haven't been able to do this sooner. A new DbgView log using the new d_iPod.dll can be found here . I didn't notice any difference with this d_iPod.dll, but hopefully the log will provide some answers. Edit: I might have not used the new d_iPod.dll after all in the previous log I linked...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

@Purplepants, is changing the comments an important step to reproduce the issue or you are able to simulate also if you don't change comments? I'm having the issue regardless of what I change, as long as I change something in the tracks tags. Changing the comments is just one of the easier things t...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

I have made a DbgView log here . Sorry for the long log, I didn't want to remove all the songs from my iPod just to make this log as rebuilding the library takes a lot of time. I changed the comments of all songs of an album and synced that album through auto-sync with my iPod. The results are all c...

Re: Truncated lyrics in iPhone 5-ios7.1.2

I found this topic through Mantis issue 6156 . I have and still am experiencing the same problem as mentioned above, but with my iPod classic 160gb (so no iOS). The lyrics and comments are truncated to about 200 characters. See my post here for more details. The truncation only happens if the songs ...

Re: Incomplete iPod Lyrics [BUG#5995]

"When MM is updating already existing track in iPod, Lyrics are sometimes truncated. As a workaround is to delete track from iPod and auto-sync again." seems to me as an accurate description of the problem. The truncation does not happen for files that weren't on the device before syncing, only with...

Re: Incomplete iPod Lyrics [BUG#5995]

To answer your questions: 1) Do files on your PC have truncated lyrics? No they do not. Syncing does not seem to effect the files on my PC unless I change the rating of a file with truncated lyrics on my iPod and subsequently (auto-)sync that with my PC. 2) Do files on your iPod have truncated lyric...
