bliss

Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? We really want to hear from you!

  1. Provide an init.d script with install for Linux users

    I'm struggling to get Bliss set up as a service in Ubuntu 11.10 that auto starts on boot and can be stopped/started/restarted with the standard Linux "service bliss start" style commands.

    I'd really appreciate it if you could include an init.d script with the Linux install, or provide instructions for setting this up on the blisshq website.

  2. Make "Move 'featuring' text..." checkbox independant of "Artists within an album" rule

    Because I'd like to authorize varying track artists and move the "featuring..." text to the track title tag in the same time.
    Impossible now, the settings are exclusive.

  3. mediamonkey like renaming options

    Ad if and left statements to renaming would make this just about perfect

    example:
    $left(\Music\$if(<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=various,_<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=techno,_<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=soundtrack,_<Album Artist>,<Album Artist@1>\<Album Artist>))),<Artist@1>\<Artist>)\$if(<Album>,$if(<Year>,<Year> - )<Album>)\$if(<track#>,<track#> - )<Artist> - <Title>,240)

    would produce:
    \Music\A\A Perfect Circle\2004 - eMOTIVe\02 - A Perfect Circle - Imagine.mp3
    \Music\Z\ZZ Top\1983 - Eliminator\01 - ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'.mp3
    \Music\_Soundtrack\2006 - V for Vendetta\09 - Cat Power - I Found a Reason.mp3
    \Music\_Techno\1991 - XL Recordings- The Second Chapter\07 - Cubic 22 - Night in Motion (Original mix).flac
    \Music\_Various\2007 - Endzeit Bunkertracks, Act 3 (disc 2- Torture session)\01 - Faderhead - Dirtygrrrls - Dirtybois…

  4. Monitoring a master music server library but storing music local

    I am storing all my music on a central music server in the house. New music is discovered and added to iTunes local library (in order for the kids to be able to play music offline or when they are out of the house) using iTunes Folder Watch. But as I see it both the old folder watch software and the new Library Toolkit cannot monitor changes to music on the music server and then syncronize to the local iTunes Library. The new adverticed facility where library toolkit should be able to monitor changes is only working if iTunes media…

  6. drop "The" from result when using group token

    When using group to create a folder structure, is it possible to drop "The" from the result? example, The Beatles would result in B, not T.

  7. Better image downsampling algorithm

    Very high-resolution covers look quite ugly the way bliss downscales them at the moment. The problem is that you're probably using bilinear interpolation. This produces aliasing artefacts when downsampling.

    I don't really know how to do that in Java, but if you need more info on the image processing side of things, I do know about those.

    This is obviously not the most important thing in the world :)

  8. Show artwork size in Kb when choosing an alternative

    To display the artwork size in Kb that has been found so the user can then make a choice of datasize over quality. Larger datasize artwork does not always mean higher quality.

  9. Compilation specific file org pattern

    The thing is that I have a lot of albums (4000 and more coming in) and the naming scheme for compilations varies somewhat. Some are tagged as a compilation (with the compilation tag), others are tagged with Various Artists in the Album Artist tag.

    So I would like bliss to move all albums that are tagged with the compilation tag (see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2290707-auto-tag-compilations ) and has Various Artists as Album Artist into the Various Artists folder on my server (and hence rename the folder- and file-name).

    Therefore, I want a specific file org pattern for compilations.

  10. Provide a "Preferred Size" Option for Selecting Album Art

    I am generally choosing Album Art at 500x500. I can obviously use min/max to reduce the number of options, but it would be an ideal alternative if I could also select "Preferred Size" and have Bliss choose album art which matches or is close - Max/Min size would still be useful to give to give Bliss a certain amount of leeway (or even better, you could choose to accept any art within say, 10% of this size).

  11. View track on iTunes

    It would be good if you can make a button that would navigate us to the track within iTunes. This way we can change the name of an album or view the other fields for editing. Love your product! It has saved me so much time and effort. Thanks!

  12. Better quality album art...

    I end up manually updating my album art, as the quality is not good enough. I always select a resolution of 500x500, but sometimes album art is the correct resolution but very compressed and poor quality. I end up doing a manual search on google images for 500x500 artwork and find a much better quality image. Is there any way Bliss can look at compression or file size and choose better quality images automatically? Maybe extra sources for album art would help, if this is possible.

  13. Allow me to enter the correct file name/path when that is the non-compliance error

    when I get a non compliance error, the program is not offering n option for me to enter a fix, and no automatic fix is offered, so I have to browse the folder andattempt a fix. I'm not sure why

  15. update more than one album's artwork in one go

    Say- shift click ablums - then do an artwork lookup (say I have three CD's with a single cover artwork), update all three in one go.

  17. Provide support for film soundtracks.

    To give an example of a Bollywood release, lets take an example of a movie called Dostana ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dostana_(2008_film) ) Each song in the release can be sung by a different artist.This is where i beleive the problem starts.I see multiple albums on Bliss with different album artist names below. To resolve the issue i erase all the info of Artist(s) from the file, and then it recognizes the release as one album.

  18. Custom Folder image for compilation folders

    In the blog, you wrote:

    .. bliss tries to work out whether the directory in which the tracks
    .. are stored is used exclusively for that one album. Otherwise,
    .. some music players may use the artwork as the art for other
    .. albums. Sometimes you may have a directory that stores
    .. multiple miscellaneous tracks from different albums.

    which is cool, but it would be nice if I could assign custom art to the FOLDER as well.

    It's wonderful that bliss gets the right art into each song, but when viewing the tree structure in some players, the folder.jpg…

  19. Option to alter memory consumption

    Currently, bliss as a service is chewing ~200Mb with consistently ~3% CPU cycles on a modern computer with a small library. Yes, it's mostly a Java issue (it loving memory and all), but when you also use your server for VM's, 4Gb starts to look a bit... weak... Also, reduction in CPU cycles = reduction in power bill.

    I would like an option where I could specify the ceiling of how much memory bliss should consume. The levels would be something like 64, 128, 256 MB.

  20. "Start fresh" option in the admin panels" delete all previous knowledge of this installation.

    After doing a substantial cleanup of duplicate files, moving junk around, moving folders and generally re-logicalizing the entire library, it became clear that Bliss was now hopelessly confused. I needed to go into the .bliss folder and clear out the database that held bliss's knowledge of the library as it was.

    This was something of a pain, although what to delete was in the documentation on the bliss web site. It would be nice to have a button (with confirmation of course) that said "Start from scratch." or words to that effect.
