I wish that I knew exactly how|why it has happened.
All I did was allow Google Music Manager to upload from my flac tracks. ... That is what they have delivered. ... It is fit for purpose. The upload was reasonably efficient.
The material that I posted up here before indicated that Google may substitute with their existing "duplicate" track versions to minimise the upload task. You did not observe this when you uploaded to GPM, but maybe it does happen. I have read that people with low resolution tracks get 320bps versions in their GPM library, so it must be happening in those cases. I believe that it probably also happened sometimes during my upload because I had a low upload cap to my Internet access plan at the time, and although the upload seemed like it took a very long time, I think that I must have experienced some saving. ... And|or maybe they do something with leading and trailing silences when they transcode from flac to mp3 ... presumably this transcoding happens before upload.
So I don't know the exact reason .. all I can say is that the result was fit for purpose. I was not aware of it until MM5 disclosed the difference.
That sounds a good plan.Ludek wrote: ↑Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:29 am I think that we need to compare also track length, e.g. I have track called 'Track 12' in my library (empty album + empty artist) and such a track was false matched with another track called 'Track 12'. The duration comparing is helping to resolve this. But maybe we should do the track length comparance only when the album+artist info is not available (like in this case). I've re-opened https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=14934 to tweak this further.
What I see looks similar to what your image shows. ... have you tried scrolling down with that scroll bar I see there on your imageLudek wrote: ↑Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:29 am BTW: What app you are using that you are able to see the Comment tag? I don't see it in the GPM Chrome's extension and I also don't see it in the Google Play Music Desktop player: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oat8l9jrzv4bb ... 8.png?dl=0
I thought that Comment is always hiddedn, therefore I used it to store ventis metadata JSON.
I am using chrome, but maybe I don't have their extension.
I right click the Google Music Manager icon in the hidden tray on the Windows task bar, take option to "Go to music Player". It opens https://play.google.com/music/listen?hl=en#/home
The display is from the Edit Info option on a tracks right click menu
My defaults values show as being different to the image that you have linked in that Mantis report ... but the MM5 upload to my GPM library was using something like your values, ie. 140 VBR?. .. ?Ludek wrote: ↑Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:29 am Re: quality of uploaded tracks, you can set up the quality in the Options > Auto-conversion
We should probably just set up a higher default quality? Entered as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15002
