  1. Web-based Playlist Creator/Editor as a "Companion App"

    It is a well known "limitation" of Bliss that it has the potential to "break" playlists...but playlists themselves are a pain to create - particularly in XBMC for example.

    Seeing as Bliss knows where the files are (and when it changes things) it would be great to be able to define and edit playlists from within Bliss. Create a playlist, tick which tracks you want in it; automatically shuffle them etc, and output in a chosen format to a specified file location. Every time Bliss makes a change that would other wise break a playlist, it could create a fresh…

  2. Add several "preset" alternative search options to the "find artwork" page

    Add a few buttons to the "find artwork" page that retry the search, but using commonly-useful alternative search terms such as "artist and album name", "add 'EP' to title", "add 'box set' to title", and so on.

  3. Ability vary the depth the file path rule investigates

    Abou 25% or 1000 albums in my library are marked as uncompliant on file path. The vast majority of these albums have one or two tracks that are uncompliant because the file name does not exactly match the tags and in most cases it is because the tag contains a character such as "" which is invalid in a file name. This is not an issue to me and I would rather leave the tag alone rather than change it so that the file name is valid. I would like to able to set the file path rule so that…

  4. Vortexbox Service Manager option

    I'm running Bliss as an installed service on my Vortexbox appliance. I was expecting to be able to see the status of the Bliss service in the Service Manager menu, with the option to stop/start as per the other services like SBS, DAAP, DLNA etc. Is this possible, or am I missing something?

  5. Classical Music.The option to assign a single date for all albums by a composer

    Release date are pretty irrelevant in classical music and I have followed the practice of tagging classical albums with the date the compose died, It would be convenient to be able to auto tag all music by a composer with a single date.

  6. Album art for other file types...

    I just realised that a lot of my music library is not even beig scanned by Bliss. I'm certain at least that all my files in musepack format (*.mpc) don't even appear in Bliss. Could this be fixed to at least scan the folder name (Artist - Album) even if Bliss cant read the mpc tags?
    Thanks for writing such a great program!
    Many thanks,
    Joseph

  7. When on Change Art, please show Album and Artist details

    When on the Change Art page, the page only displays the Album name, very small. Please show all the details on the album so that it is easier to see, from the results of the search, which album is the correct one.

  8. Ability to exclude files fron being scanned at all

    Having spent many hours tidying up metadata and artwork it's really tedious to have Bliss rescan everything. Classic example is with artwork - many files have incorrect artwork (mostly classical) but of course Bliss will report these as Compliant (as artwork exists) but those that are OK I need to exclude from the scan to leave me just the ones I need to change. I suppose this is a tricky one as it would presumably mean adding a field to file itself that said 'exclude from Bliss' (and could be removed if needed).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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>&lt;Album Artist>))),<Artist@1>&lt;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…

  12. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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 :)

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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
