  1. Allow different cover art for each CD in a multi-CD set

    I have several multi-CD sets in my music library. I store each CD in a separate album directory. Each CD has the same album name, but a different discnumber tag. Some of these multi-CD sets have different cover art for each CD in the set. Example: Yesyears by Yes. It is a 4-CD set, with different covert art for each CD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B000002JNV/ref=cmciupdpimagesall

    I would like bliss to treat each album with the same album name but different discnumber and different album directory, as a separate entity, and allow specification of different cover art for each CD…

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Use the folder and file name to help identify songs, albums and other tags when no tags exist

    When a file is taged with just the words 'Album' / 'Artist' or just rubbish, try and identify the tag details from the folder or path name. Also give an option to see the path on the Album (or Artist) page so you can copy and paste the details into the right place from the path manually

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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!

  9. not to rescan all after adding a Genre

    Each time I allow a new Genre to Bliss starts rescanning every single file.
    Even if there is a good reason for that I suggest it does so only if requested.

  10. Username and password to access bliss

    An admin user and password account is a must. Authorisation should be delivered via HTTP basic authentication at least.

    Later (but this is not the subject of this idea), further accounts with read only and/or write access would be great. Access control could allow read/write access to certain things such as certain albums, artists etc. Some accounts would be able to reorganise certain things. This would be especially useful if future API functions are made available.

  11. Automatically rename genres

    Is it possible to automatically rename genre? Otherwise it always asks to confirm.

  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. Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00) for filenames

    I have a number of pieces that are the result of recording old cassettes, or sometimes albums, or pieces that I have recorded live, or lectures, or whatever, that simply do not HAVE track numbers.

    Bliss complains that they're uncompliant, because they don't HAVE a track number... which is fine. But I have to bring up some external tag editor because BLISS doesn't let me enter a track number. Ideally, a "if track is missing utterly, number them in alpha order in that directory automatically, and don't ask me" function would be best. Or, perhaps, a "Set to 00" button,…

  14. 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 :)

  15. Ability to define file permissions for Unix systems

    When Bliss modifies files on a Unix system it sets default file permissions of 644 using whatever owner and group that Bliss is running as. I would like to be able to define what permissions get applied to files, so I don't have to manually alter permissions if I want other users to be able to modify my music files.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  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.
