Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? We really want to hear from you!

  1. Additional Filenaming Mask - Move The to end

    As you can use album name with blanks, no spaces, underscores etc perhaps there is a place for a file naming scheme that moves THE to the end. This would not impact on The in the TAG, leaving The Beatles alone but doing the file naming as Beatles, The.

    Just thinking this could be used for Album Artist, Track Artist, Album Name, Track Name.

    If you use the Sort Artist, for example, so that you get THE to the end what happens if the Sort field being used is blank. Works fine if the field is populated. Just seems to…

  2. List Improvements

    Alternating colours to make it easier to discern to which cell and row your input correlates. Sometimes it's hard to know if you've just put in a tag, until you open a program and see the wrong title

  3. Graphics for artists

    It may be good to allow the option of having bliss automatically select the first cover for an artist to display as the artist.

    I have several Steely Dan albums and instead of just showing a box with the artist name, I'd like see a graphic of one of the albums (probably the first in the list) with the name underneath.

    I assume not everyone would want this, but an option to do this would be good.

  4. A compare between the bliss run on the the primairy file and on the backup (an automated "winmerge")

    I (suppose) we have to run on the primairy dateabas as wel on the back up. Sometimes I forget to add or remove a file on the backup. Once in a while I have tot check with a program like winmerge. A buglist from the comparisation of the two runs would be helpfull.

  5. Allow editing of compilation field

    When editing tags for an album, the compilation flag can be set, if the database thinks it is a compilation, but not unset.

    Also it cannot be set if the online database does not think that it is a compilation.

    If I've just missed where it is set, please point out how to edit it.

  6. Manual fix for non-compliant cover-art

    I have quite a few files where there is no compliant cover art, e.g. I want a minimum of 500x500 but all there is is just 300x300, and sometimes there is no cover art at all for a release. That applies, e.g. for a lot of the live concert recordings I have, and prevents me from effectively checking for album art compliance with the rest of my collection. I am aware that I could just upload a placeholder cover art, but that is a lot of manual work, and also that does not help with existing cover art that is…

  7. album art too large when viewed on album compliance

    When clicking on album name from the album page the art seems to take up far too much space or is it just me? Appreciate the whole page can be zoomed in & out but need to still read the details & edit them. I think the art could be at least half the size allowing for more details to be shown on the page without using the scroll bars. Perhaps if the art was even shown smaller on the page but then on clicking the art it zoomed in for anyone wanting to see the finer details of it!

  8. Overall / queue progression bar

    Hi,

    Great software, a bit slow on my synology NAS but usable, a plus would be to have an overall progression bar : I guess you have some sort of a queue in Bliss, which could be rendered next to the "Scanned X of Y albums" and why not a ETA indicator ?

    Thanks again for your software

  9. More memory alloted = MUCH better performance

    The docs say that Bliss shouldn't need more than 256MB. That may be so but I found very substantial performance increases by going to 512MB. I'm a new user but from what I read I believe that my speed at 512MB is probably "normal' - i.e., I was starved at 256MB. This may just be for my own environment.

  10. Allow for directory-level album artwork backup

    I'd like to be able to change the name of the existing artwork file as well as create an optimized version. For example, I'd like to have it take the original "cover.jpg", rename it as "cover (original).jpg", and then make the optimized version "cover.jpg". Since I'm also embedding artwork, the current backup option isn't ideal, since I don't need backups of the artwork for every file; I just want to rename the original file as well as give a name to the optimized version in a directory.

  11. tags file size album wrap

    When editing under the tags page it would be useful to be able to have a column that shows the actual file size so that a user could identify an album wrap and tag it accordingly. eg. ALBWRAP

  12. Add stop service or scan button (synology nas)

    The idea behind this is a simple way to stop the service mid scan to enable any number of things to take place. Currently having to navigate to the package & stop the service. Perform various things then restart the service. Just a nice quicker way to do this

  13. Allow for Checking of DPI Value for Embedded Artwork

    I've noticed that some albums that have passed bliss compliance checks have failed to display artwork in my car (2014 Audi A3 with MMI). When I've checked the embedded artwork, the culprits always have a high value for the dpi - eg 300dpi. Artwork at 72 or 96dpi displays correctly.

    Can a check on dpi be done as part of the compliance check, even if it's not possible to automatically correct it?

  14. Persistent album navigation buttons

    I'm validating Bliss's artwork and metadata suggestions and I've just gotten to the second 96-album page of the album list. Unlike the first 96-album page, I can't always move from the current to the next album: the buttons that let me move backward and forward in the album list sometimes disappear, leaving only the "Back to album list" button. This slows my validation considerably because I need to navigate to each album rather than simply clicking a button to move to it.
    Here's how to reproduce the problem:
    * Navigate to the second page of the album list.
    * Click…

  15. Failed to update tags (pop up not clearing) temp recolour background

    When editing tags manually and assume bliss is already doing something to that file then you get a pop up message stating "failed to update tag" However the pop up box does not clear and so you have to come out of tags and back in. Re-select to show the tags that are wanting to be edited again e.g. in this case Genre.. Then continue down the list to find where you were. Skip that album & continue....... somewhat annoying ... Any way of identifying a locked file ? say temp recolour back ground to red so you know not…

  16. Allow license to be added as parameter on startup

    I've been playing around with docker version of bliss that has been started by grant Shipley (credit: https://github.com/gshipley/bliss).

    One thing I've noticed is every time I start it, while I can preserve the config for the database the license information is lost and I have to manually re-enter it.

    Suggestion from this idea is to find a way to allow the user to pass in their license on startup. Suggestion is setting a parameter in startup script that will load if valid.

    Unless there is a way already to do this?

  17. clear tags & standard comments tag

    As been mentioned perhaps before an ability to clear certain tags would be good. Especially when starting with a jumbled messy collection.

    Not least as an addition to the settings page have a setting that allows a comment to be set as standard for the comment tag. Allow a radio button/sub control to state append or overwrite or clear current comment tag. So when found Bliss will append or overwrite or clears any current comment that is within the comment tag. Gets rid of or tidies the comment tag.

  18. missing art shortcut

    When missing art is found as non compliance, and you are viewing albums , by clicking on the empty thumb nail this immediately takesyou to the page where you can search for missing art.
    back end of URL below....
    /coverart?startAt=0&page=.*&albumsCount=96&complianceState=noncompliant%253AGroupedMissingArtAssessment

    This would save on repeated navigating through the menues to get to the websearch function..
    Just an idea

  19. Official iTunes Genres list in the Genre consolidation pull down menu

    Would it be possible to have the option of the level 1 and level 2 genres that iTunes supports available in the Genre consolidation menu? The list is viewable at https://affiliate.itunes.apple.com/resources/documentation/genre-mapping/

  20. Missing album art, auto own image.

    Rather than having multiple missing album ar as potential fixes, have a default image of your own choice that automatically gets uplaoded & inserted into the music file. (done within the settings) When time allows you can search for no album art files & correctly change to an alternative if required or leave a is.
