I suggest ...

Allowing for custom sizes and dimensions for the album art minimum and maximum settings.

My sonos system allows artwork up to 320kb and 1024x1024, but I can't specify those values (unless I'm missing something). Would be nice if I could add those in a 'Custom' setting.

        Yes I think having custom sizes should be incorporated. It would certainly help with max capability of all of the devices that are out there, including the 4K's. My guess for the future is bigger will be better. :-)

        The maximum image size option is 900x900 and file size of 1MB. If you set minimum to 900x900 with no max option then bliss tends to find some extremely large images which break the rules engine (due to embedded art size of >7MB). 900x900 is still quite small so suggest extending this to either user entered limits or add options like {2,4,6}M and 1500x1500/2000x2000.

        Hello,

        There are a lot HD Covers around and i would love to use just the max availlable Resolution of them. But, my Car Audio can only handle Covers with max 800x800px Resolution. So, it would be great if bliss would Download just all Sizes and Resize them to 800px.

        btw, i just found bliss and this is really an awesome tool. I have no idea why i did not found this earlier.

        Thanks.

        I would like more than the radio buttons currently available for reducing data size. My car likes them less than 200kb, so 256kb is too big and they don't work, but 128kb is too much reduction for my tastes.

        The SONOS website (link below version Updated 04/30/2012 09:19 AM) says:

        "Sonos Controller for iPhone and iPad as well as the Sonos Controller for Android support up to 320KB physical sized album art with no resolution limit."

        https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/163

        It would also be useful if bliss could meet the file size specifications too, but current version does not have the 320kb option (closest is 256kb, or 512kb which would go over the limit sometimes).

        I am voting for this suggestion to get the 320kb option but without the the size limitation now that SONOS has lifted that.

        I look forward to having this implemented in bliss so I dont have to manually do it for thousands of songs. Keep up the good work!

        There is a possible workaround for this that I haven't tested. The settings are kept in a text file in the following location:

        {user folder}/.bliss/settings

        Inside you'll see lines such as:

        com.elsten.bliss.music.policy.coverartpolicy.CoverArtPolicy.approxMaxHeight=2147483647
        com.elsten.bliss.music.policy.coverartpolicy.CoverArtPolicy.approxMaxWidth=2147483647
        com.elsten.bliss.music.policy.coverartpolicy.CoverArtPolicy.approxMinHeight=0
        com.elsten.bliss.music.policy.coverartpolicy.CoverArtPolicy.approxMinWidth=0

        Stop bliss, then change those numbers to what you want the max height, width and min height, width to be (in pixels).

        Then restart bliss.

        I don't recommend keeping it this way for a long time... I'm not sure how the user interface will 'react'.

        Should this be flagged as in-progress? It looks like the latest releases are starting to address this.

      • AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Luca, what's possibly not that clear is that there's actually a leniency allowed for looking for art, which is 10% either side, or 10 pixels maximum. So if you have 500x500 minimum, it will find art that is 490x490. However, such art will still be marked uncompliant. It would be good to allow leniency in the rule (and also maybe alter the leniency so that, in your example, 450x450 is allowed).

      • lucaberta commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would also add 450x450 since often times this resolution can be found online, and the difference with 500x500 is not huge. I for one would use 450x450 minimum and 500x500 maximum
