  1. Carry on from where it left off

    Having Bliss back to work where it left off when restarting would be very useful especially for NAS devices with scheduled start / stop package.
    (allows you to run Bliss only at night to save memory/cpu when you use the NAS at day)

    • Date formatting rule (e.g. trim the date field to just the year)

      It would be helpful if you could force the date field to be just the year - as in, 1997/02/28 to simply 1997

      • Mass-review / Update of non-compliant items

        Hello,
        First, sorry for the long post.
        Might I suggest a feature that is similar in output format to the Tag view output, but shows a list of changes for a type of tag, say Track Name with the current entry in one column and the suggested change in another and a third column with the commit button, but also a global commit button that will make all suggested changes.

        For example, I have about 5000 entries that have invalid tag entries. These can vary from Genre to Track Name, but there are a lot of entries that need the…

        • Automatic tag completion

          I expected Bliss to fix missing tags automatically (genres, years, etc.). I have around 3,000 albums in my library, over 1,000 of which don't have a year. I was surprised that a scan didn't automatically fix this. Instead, I need to go to my "Inbox" and tell it to fix these, but only up to 96 at a time - that's over 100 clicks to fix them all (hardly automated). Can't Bliss be set to automatically fix anything you put in your criteria without so much manual intervention?

          • Colour Coding Tag Non Compliance, And A One Click Fix For Track Names

            With the introduction of tag checking, it might be good to differ to colour of the non compliant items listed after pressing the 'Why' link (eg albumn name blue, track name green). It may also be good to have one button to fix all track names in one go - saving many clicks.

            • Show the image file size in the suggested images page

              The image art selector only shows the image size in pixels not the file size, show the file size as well.

              • Allow us to mark albums as "done"

                Another really useful feature would be to be able to mark some CDs, or even directories of CDs, as "done", i.e., I am satisfied with these and bliss should ignore them in future unless I ask to see a full list (or I change the settings).

                This would have 2 benefits - it could make bliss faster by letting it know it could just ignore certain items, and it would make it faster to see what bliss has done with something newly added which wasn't as expected (e.g. unexpected artist name / title etc).

                • Make placeholders on album pages the same size as the art

                  I like my art to be displayed in a tidy grid. This is how it would be if I had art for every album. At present the grid is distorted by the placeholders which do not occupy the same size space as the art. The result is variable vertical displacement of the art and loss of alphabetical sequence. The more placeholders there are the worse it is.

                  • Type album and artist name once in Untagged page

                    The ability to add/edit the tags in the Untagged page is useful but typically the album and artist name is repeated for each track in an album. This means a lot of copy and pasting, and is especially annoying on a tablet or mobile phone.

                    It would be good to either provide a way of copying the entry to all files for a given tag, or having something more like the Album edit view where album-level tags are entered just once.

                    • Share user-supplied alternative art with upstream databases

                      If users chose to use URL or own file, maybe it's possible to upload it to the databases, with whom you cooperate? That would help others users later on.

                      • Google Analytics

                        I'm not sure, why google analytics is shown under "scripts" in "js blocker" (the more, as the software runs on my own machine). If it's necessary for you as a developer to get some feedback, maybe this should be a transparent Opt-In / Opt-Out option.

                            • An option to provide a popup or audible signal when a folder has finished processing.

                              That's it really! At present it seems one just has to watch the processing files running count top left until it disappears.

                              • Populate Untagged album info from a URL

                                In the Untagged page, I should be able to provide a URL or drag and drop a URL, bliss parse the content on the URL and populate the album data as a result.

                                Initial implementations could cope with agreed sources of data. E.g. Discogs and MusicBrainz would be easy to use, because we already have the data there, so just need to look up the data given the URL.

                                Other popular sources may be:

                                - Amazon
                                - All Music Guide
                                - Last.fm

                                • Missing tracks in albums should be detected

                                  Title says it all I think.

                                  BLISS should (optionally) check if an album in a collection is complete or if it's missing songs and possibly even display the missing ones, so I know which ones to buy.

                                  Pretty much like this beets plugin http://beets.readthedocs.io/en/v1.3.19/plugins/missing.html

                                  • Fixup [disk 1] / [disk 2]

                                    Multi disk CDs often get metadata for title such as "foo [disk 1]" foo [disk 2]" It'd be nice if bliss could fix this up so that the correct disk 1 of 2 was in the tags, and the title was fixed to "foo" Bonus points for handling all the random combinations of [], () disk vs disc etc.

                                    • Play nice with Kodi

                                      Kodi (formerly XBMC) is my, and a few million other people's, media player of choice. To make a good looking library Kodi uses various image files as 'posters', 'fanart', 'slideshows' etc. as well as the standard folder.jpg/cover.jpg. Kodi also likes to save various kinds of extended metadata in xml-format NFO files in the library path under the artist and album folders.

                                      It would be nice if Bliss' file handling rouines could at least learn to keep the relevant NFO and image files in the right place relative to the music files when renaming and so on.

                                      Even better if Bliss…

                                      • Reduce data size: by compression rather than resizing

                                        I have Bliss set to ensure my art is less than 1mb, but I ideally like a pixel size as large as possible to future proof it for use with applications. I was surprised to find out 'Reduce data size' does so by reducing the pixel size of images. How about incorporating some form of lossy compression that retains the image pixel proportions, but compresses the data in the image just enough to get down to the file data size setting? I'd imagine this wouldn't greatly affect the quality of images, but would reduce data size without having to shrink…

                                        • Specify Tags - with the ability to remove "unwanted"

                                          The ability to specify the tags you'd like applied to all tracks, and remove/clear any that aren't on the list. For example, if "Comment" isn't on the "allowed" list of tags and the track contains the "Comment" tag (with data in), an option would clear that tag, and remove it (if possible).

                                          Things like "Encoded By" etc are annoying tags that just add bloat (IMO). It would be nice to have the ability to strip these tags automatically.
