1414 - Library filter/collection criteria issue

Post by BramKa » Fri Aug 05, 2011 5:06 pm

Hi I'm new to this testing so please forgive me if this is the wrong way of giving feedback. I'm using winvista, MediaMonkey 4.0.0.1014, 2 HD C: and D: and External HD I: on which my music is located.

I noticed on this latest version a part of my collection (total amount of it is around 17000 files) was missing. Only I could locate them in the library using the location folder. in the music tree a part was missing. My collection criteria was set to 'type' equals 'music' and 'music video'. After de-selecting these everything was back. But the problem is thus that by default not my whole collection is opening!

Yes, Collections are filtered, only Entire Library shows all files. You might have files listed as Classical Music.

Lowlander, thanks for your quick response! That is right a part that was missing is genre 'general classical'. But what I don't understand is why it is filtering out general classical or other genres when the only filter that is selected is 'type equals music' . Normally all music should be shown then or not? If you need more info just let me know.

No, because Classical Music is it's own Type and has it's own Collection.

HI MM4 Beta is a huge step forward, thanks for your effort! There is one issue confusing me:

How does MM detect what classical music is and what not? I have a lot of classical music organized mainly in categories "chamber music", "opera", "classical" but the classical music collection only shows the latter. Even when I manually changed the MP3tags from "chamber music" to "classical" the files didn't show up. Any ideas what mistake I'm making here? Or is it a bug?

Thanks in advance!

It will only determine Type when the files are scanned in the first time. After that you can change the Type manually to whichever Type you want in the Properties window.
