  1. Selection of amazon store or multi store search

    I have a lot of french (canada - Québec albums) and the cover can only be found in the amazon store in canada

    • On the installed page, provide an option to show the size of the album art

      Under each album art picture on the Installed page, optionally display the size of the picture; e.g. 300x300, 500x500, etc.

      • See the kbps rate

        Would be nice to see the bit rate of the encoded file (mp3. m4a...etc). I usually delete or move to another folder low kbps rate files. It would also be nice to see if that's a VBR or if CBR

        • When Manually adding cover art, after selecting new art the top line choises for Next & previous albums disappear.

          When manually adding cover art keep the NEXT & PREVIOUS album links. This allows you to keep scrolling through albums to fix more art.

          Otherwise we are forced to return to the main album list and then select a new album to check

          • Increase number of media sources and add direct support for specific media streamers

            Increase number of repositories searched (I'm thinking here of Google images, Amazon etc. although they might get a bit annoyed with copyright etc.)

            Allow for optional naming of jpg file. For example allow the jpg to take both "folder.jpg" and/or parse the name of the Album as the title of the jpg e.g. Beverley Knight >> Affirmation >> Affirmation.jpg or to allow a custom extension to be chosen.

            This leads onto support for specific media streamers. In my case the Western Digital TV Live Streaming Media Player.

            WD have chosen to use freebase.com as their meta data source but freebase…

            • 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.

                • dot character (".") as whitespace character (rather than _ or space)

                  I saw your post about underscores in file renaming.

                  http://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2010/06/28/spaces-in-music-filenames-just-say-no/

                  Is there any configuration options I can set to use a different character rather than the underscore?

                  I sorta like the "." character to separate.

                  The.Best.Of.Johnny.Cash
                  vs
                  The_Best_Of_Johnny_Cash

                  You had mentioned there is support for the "-" character, but at the moment, it requires adopting a custom renaming rule as described at
                  To get the hyphen you have to adopt a custom pattern as described here: http://www.blisshq.com/support/tutorials/tidy-music-folder-file-org.html And the UI for selecting that character doesnt really scale to allowing the user to pick (or even you to offer the ".")…

                    • Suppress art suggestion

                      When I set art work to be 500 x 500 the app will still suggest artwork which is smaller even when I already have artwork which is the same size or larger.

                      • I need to be able to easily copy the path of a file or album so I can open a tagging app (mp3tag or foobar, etc.)

                        ...and easily get to the file's location. I find that in the bliss interface I can't even select and copy a path.

                        • 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…

                          • [Artist consolidation] Strip whitespace from artist names

                            Part of the artist consolidation rule should be to trim whitespace (tabs, spaces etc) from the start and end of the artist name.

                                  • 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.

                                    • "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.

                                      • 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
