  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • 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

          • 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.

            • The creation of an album catalogue interface

              Having a seperate web page that can view your collection (from chosen location) and browse the album art assigned - from this you can choose to correct artwork through bliss, this would be an excellent way of browsing your collection and correcting artwork once bliss has finished scanning

              • Automatically suggest image files of same folder as cover.

                Some covers are hard to locate on the internet in large resolution, but I already have many in a subfolder called 'covers' per album.
                Perhaps you can display these covers (the .jpg files wich are in the same folder as the mp3/flac and/or those in a subfolder called 'covers') immediately on the 'choose an alternative' tab.

                  • Add ability to filter and print the activity log

                    After Bliss has completed its library scan, it would be good to be able to identify those albums which Bliss touched and, more importantly, which ones it didn't (or couldn't).

                    Being able to filter the activity log by "found non-compliant" or "modified" and then printing that filtered list would make it much easier to then go through and manually correct those albums

                    • Update iTunes database when Bliss moves files

                      If Bliss is relocating files it would be helpful if these changes were automatically reflected in the iTunes database (*.itl file). This would avoid "orphaned" music if using iTunes as your primary music manager.

                          • Auto tag compilations

                            bliss should auto tag compilations. I would like bliss to tag every album that has either Various Arist (or some other similar moniker in a defined set) in Album Artist tag with the compilation tag and tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

                            See also http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1760321-add-setting-for-compilation-directory-name-seems- which occurs because the "various artists" alias in bliss is hardcoded to "Various".

                            The reason for me wanting this is so that I can get control over all my compilationalbums when I look through my album collection on my music player. If…

                              • Add a table/details overview (in addition to the grid)

                                Iit would be good to have a list/table view with album names down the left, and columns for other aspects like artist names, compliancy of different rules and maybe shortcuts to functionality, e.g. changing the art, file paths or tags within the overview screen.

                                The analogy are file explorers: typically they allow grid/thumbnail views as well as detail views where files can be ordered by different columns, and different metadata about the files can be viewed in the column cells.

                                Just as with the grid view, you would be able to filter by compliance or startsWith. The option would likely…

                                • Add album art aspect ratio to compliance

                                  99.9999% of album art is square as it is from a CD or vinyl cover, which is also square. Some album art online, while valid, is not square. Some are slightly rectangular, having the top and/or bottom slightly trimmed. This is annoying.

                                  If the cover art system could be told (optionally) to exclude any images that aren't 1:1 aspect ratio (within a certain percentage, say two or three pixels either way), so that all the images you get presented with (and it auto detects while fixing) are square it would overcome the problem.

                                  The cover art selector could have a…

                                    • Shrink artwork (due to data size) should be automatic

                                      When art is too large (in terms of data size) the shrink artwork option is manual, I have to go through each album and click the fix. I'd rather they were all shrunk automatically.

                                      • Don't alter the timestamps on the files

                                        Bliss alters the timestamp on each file it fixes, this is really unwelcome behaviour. The timestamp is an important part of the metadata and I don't want it altered. I know that it is possible to change the file without altering the timestamp (on NTFS at least), could this feature be added?

                                        • Implement styles and moods tagging from Allmusic.com

                                          The genre tagging from Allmusic.com is already implemented. Moods and styles would be an awesome addition.
