    • Derived tags

      bliss should allow textual tags to contain "derived" data; that is, to provide consistent manipulations of canonical data to a defined scheme.

      An example of this may be to append the bitrate to an album name. Using a template engine, the album could be defined as so:

      Album name: <album name> [<format>]

      Tags could potentially be combined with others:

      Track name: <track name> (<artist name>)

      Set out in more detail here: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/10/03/derived-tags/

      • Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00)

        I have a number of pieces that are the result of recording old cassettes, or sometimes albums, or pieces that I have recorded live, or lectures, or whatever, that simply do not HAVE track numbers.

        Bliss complains that they're uncompliant, because they don't HAVE a track number... which is fine. But I have to bring up some external tag editor because BLISS doesn't let me enter a track number. Ideally, a "if track is missing utterly, number them in alpha order in that directory automatically, and don't ask me" function would be best. Or, perhaps, a "Set to 00" button,…

            • 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…

                • Capability do delete inconsistent entries in the database

                  After changing title or artist tag of an album with an external program, bliss' automatic reorganization of files and folders makes the changes accordingly but leaves the previous entry in an inconsistent state, showing 'Unkown' and a number of errors. It would be useful if the compliance filter could be added with an entry to filter these albums, giving a resulting page where each album found has a delete button to get rid of these inconsistencies, instead of doing a complete rescan of the music library.

                  • Ability to enter Freedb ID directly. Instead of bliss having to search for the artist/album

                    I have a few discs that Bliss cant find, but i find them quite easy on MusicBrainz, there is also a FreeDB ID wich could be copied and pasted into Bliss.

                    • process improvements.

                      I am processing 170,000 files. So I have some comments on this very good software...
                      1) Please allow me to auto-accept size and track number changes without clicking each album
                      2) Please have some intelligence in the Genre such that "country" automatically becomes "Country", (as well as "Singer-Songwriter --> Singer/Songwriter", "R&b --> R&B"), etc. And let me autoaccept those
                      3) Please give me a way to clear out all uncessary information that is not part of the standard IDV tags (and clear out any comments, etc, that are part of the tags standard but are not necessary).
                      4) Please don't…

                      • Bliss Docker Container

                        With the introduction of Docker to a number of NAS devices, in my case Sinology, it would be great to have a Docker Container to enable Bliss to run.

                          Right now there isn't really any way to tell what is going on... Why not print messages to somewhere like "Embedded artwork from X into Y files of Z album"?

                          • Display more files

                            Redesign the main interface page to take up less real estate and dedicate more lines for the display read out.

                            I have Thousands of files and viewing them on a screen 96 at a time is difficult. Increasing the default to 250 or 500 or 1000 or all would be awesome.

                            Also tighten up the display a smaller font and no lines spacing between the lines would be helpful

                                  • Re: Album artist. Blissgives me no choice in determining what I prefer as a "compliant" entry.

                                    Re: Alblum artist. Bliss defaults to the found alblum artist, but gives me no choice in determining if I want that as a "compliant" entry. For example; in the 1987 album Anything Goes, the "complaint" album artist enrty according to Bliss is "1987 Original Broadway Cast". But I would prefer "Various" or Various Artist. When I make that change with a tag editor, the album remains uncomplaint, but THAT is the way *I* would prefer it, so when I sort via artist in my preferred player, this album shows up correctly FOR me.

                                    • Write musicbrainz Track IDs (MUSICBRAINZ_ID) into files

                                      I'm not sure what exactly bliss does when it is fingerprinting but it would be helpful if it could write the MBIDs that it either generates or receives from MusicBrainz into the files.

                                      Reason: The popular Squeezebox TrackStat plugin can use these to identify songs even after they have been moved or renamed. If there are no Track IDs in the files, all TrackStat statistics (Playcount, rating etc) will be lost if files are renamed or moved.

                                      • Enforcing preferential tags over compliant tags

                                        There are time when one would prefer the tagging for an album be modified from its "found" compliance. An example would be when an artist tag, say Mary Eggers, is normally found as compliant when shown as "Eggers, Mary", but one would prefer Mary Eggers. The problem is that after editing the tag, upon a rescan, Bliss often flags the album as non compliant, or worse, "fixes" the tagging back to the original, unwanted tagging. User Preferential Tagging should exist, even if a music folder so customized might not be compatible/compliant with other music players

                                        • Move music files between libraries

                                          Currently file organisation patterns move files within the same library. For example, if you had two libraries:

                                          C:\Music\ripped
                                          C:\Music\live

                                          And a pattern:

                                          <album artist>/<album name>/<tracknumber>-<track name>

                                          That would move files within each respective library.

                                          But what if you wanted to move files between the libraries? Here's a way it could be done:

                                          <library:C:\Music\live><album artist>/<album name>/<tracknumber>-<track name>

                                          All files would be moved into the C:\Music\live folder, then into the correct artist/album structure.

                                          Combined with having different rulesets for different libraries, this would afford a way of having a "quarantine" or "staging" library, then moving files into your "live" library once fixed.
