  1. Be Able To Choose Album Art from Your Existing Collection

    For Double Albums, Bliss will sometimes fail to find a matching cover for Disc 2. You may have chosen a particular cover for Disc 1 and then find that the only covers available for Disc 2 do not match. This could be fixed if one of your options for choosing Cover Art was from your existing collection of covers - especially if it was shown in "Most Recently Added" order - you could choose the same cover as you chose for Disc 1 with a couple of clicks. At the moment, my only option is to separately upload cover.jog from…

      • 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.

          • Missing tracks in albums should be detected

            Title says it all I think.

            BLISS should (optionally) check if an album in a collection is complete or if it's missing songs and possibly even display the missing ones, so I know which ones to buy.

            Pretty much like this beets plugin http://beets.readthedocs.io/en/v1.3.19/plugins/missing.html

            • Control over the case of a file/folder name

              Currently bliss always performs case sensitive comparisons of music tags to file/folder names. It should be optional to force bliss to consider what a file/folder name should be in light of a preferred case.

              For instance, when using <fileextension> to organise music files by their file type, it would be useful to be able to enforce capitals, otherwise on case sensitive file systems we may end with folders like mp3/, MP3/ and so on.

              • [BIG ONE] Changing bliss to a task queue work flow style.

                I believe this idea will fundamentally improve the usability of bliss. I purchased bliss in hope it would save me huge amount of time w/ managing a music collection of (5000+ albums and growing...) However, I found bliss saved me some time, but not that much!

                What I realize is while bliss' idea and its features are great, the productivity issue is in the UI workflow design.

                Bliss automatically scans library in the background, but most fix actions are designed to be done interactive(in real time). I found I choose the non-compliant album and click on fix, and then *WAIT*…

                • 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.

                    • Display Directory name and complete path for manual choosing album art

                      When choosing the album art manually nowhere you can know the directory name of the current "album" and that can help alot for choosing the good cover matching good album version

                      • add logic to conditionally use tags in filename

                        i like to name my files with as little info as possible, but as much info as necessary in order to be able to clearly allocate the correct artist, album and track:

                        <artist> - <album> - <discnumber:nn if greater than 1><tracknumber:nn> - <songtitle>

                        example for a single disc album song:

                        Jim Morrison - An American Prayer - 02 - Ghost Song.mp3

                        example for a multi-disc album song:

                        Booker T. & The MG's - Time Is Tight - 0208 - Johnny, I Love You.mp3

                        i suggest to be able to conditionally use tags in the filename such as "IF discnumber >…

                          • Adding a "Restart bliss" option to the web interface.

                            This is a feature that I did not think would be needed, but with the latest version being released I was not able to see the update from the web UI until bliss was restarted. Since I run bliss on CentOS, there is no provided init scripts and the one I have created only starts bliss so the easiest and quickest way for me to reboot bliss is to bounce my server (which also serves media via SubSonic).

                            The update process restarts bliss at the end so I assume the code for a restart is already written and could easily…

                            • Handle folders containing Singles

                              I have a main folder called "Full Albums" which contains the folder structures defines in my rules. I also have a number of folders like "Various - 00s", "Various - 90s" etc. Each of this folders contains lots of individual mp3 singles, each mp3 has it's own genre, year and file naming convention (without track numbers).

                              The only way I could think of doing this is allowing multiple music folders, and allowing us to setup rulesets for a each folder (or group of folders).

                                • Auto suggest album art based on file name or tags

                                  For me as well as many others I would assume you end up with hundreds of mp3s that are missing or otherwise have a compilation album title. I would rather also see a list of album images from albums that contain the same (Title). Viewing that list with (Band - Album) names listed under it would greatly speed up finding custom images.

                                      • Override artist case rules to enforce canonical spelling [was: Fix OST/O.S.T.]

                                        As discussed previously...

                                        Dan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented · August 21, 2015 10:37 ·

                                        Adding every artist name would not scale, so I want to solve this alongside the canonical artist rule. I think I could add a checkbox to the rule saying "if the artist is canonically correct, ignore the case rule".

                                        That said, OST are an interesting one! http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=OST&type=artist&method=indexed

                                        Could you add this as a new idea? The same fix can also be applied to album and track names.

                                        • 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.
