  1. Identify MP3's with Progressive JPEG Album Art

    Progressive JPEG's are not widely compatible with music players .... specifically Mazda Connect in my case.

    It would be great to be able to identify MP3's with progressive Album Art and ideally flatten the image.

  2. Sort feature in the Tags screen

    Would allow sorting by column--artist, album, genre, track name.

  3. Use variables in cover art file name

    Use variable such as <album name> when Bliss downloads and renames album art for the folder.

  4. 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.

  5. mediamonkey like renaming options

    Ad if and left statements to renaming would make this just about perfect

    example:
    $left(\Music\$if(<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=various,_<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=techno,_<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=soundtrack,_<Album Artist>,<Album Artist@1>\<Album Artist>))),<Artist@1>\<Artist>)\$if(<Album>,$if(<Year>,<Year> - )<Album>)\$if(<track#>,<track#> - )<Artist> - <Title>,240)

    would produce:
    \Music\A\A Perfect Circle\2004 - eMOTIVe\02 - A Perfect Circle - Imagine.mp3
    \Music\Z\ZZ Top\1983 - Eliminator\01 - ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'.mp3
    \Music\_Soundtrack\2006 - V for Vendetta\09 - Cat Power - I Found a Reason.mp3
    \Music\_Techno\1991 - XL Recordings- The Second Chapter\07 - Cubic 22 - Night in Motion (Original mix).flac
    \Music\_Various\2007 - Endzeit Bunkertracks, Act 3 (disc 2- Torture session)\01 - Faderhead - Dirtygrrrls - Dirtybois…

  6. 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…

  8. Support for "wildcard" directory prefix

    Support for "wildcard" prefixes to allow for directory structure such as /storage/music/flac & /storage/music/mp3. Pointing Bliss to /storage/music currently generates a Uncompliant file path warning.

  9. Manage playlists with regard to the planed "Organise files" feature

    I really like the idea of the upcoming "Organise Files" feature (files are renamed and moved into directories based on their tags, like: artist/album/tracknum-trackname). However there is one major reason for me why I would not use that feature at the moment: it would break any playlists that have those files in them (at least all the ones based on file path, most I guess).

    My suggestion is to add a feature that corrects playlists when changing the path of a music file (name and directory). To keep things simple I would have the user supply one directory of playlists…

  10. Showing tags and file size and bitrate of duplicates

    One small request - the new built in duplicate deletion is good, but often for me the only difference between duplicates is file size / bit rate. This occurs when I’ve ripped and then reripped at a better quality. At the moment you can’t tell these files apart. Could you show this as well as the existing tags of the duplicates? Possibly the encoding too as often the only difference is lossy vs lossless?

    Thanks Andy for the idea!

  11. Options of ignoring @eaDir errors (possibly more)

    I am finding a lot of my folders have certain files that causes bliss to ignore the whole analysis of a that folder. Would like to have an override to ignore these types of filess & alow bliss to continue to process or even delete them automatically to then rescan accordingly. Files I am finding that causes ignore errors = ini files, thumbnails , any form of art= jpg bmp, gif, png etc , playlists & any other file that could stop bliss from processing.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Distinguish albums with the same album name from the same artist by year

    Some artists release several albums using the same name (e.g. Weezer with 3 albums named "Weezer"). These currently will appear as 1 entry in bliss, making it hard to assign different artwork for each entry. Suggestion: check if entries exists with the same album name but different years and file them as [Album Name] ([Year]).

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. Rule to set composer as (album) artist

    As explained here: http://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2012/03/13/are-composers-artists/
    I would like to browse my classical music collection by composer. Mozart should be listed between Morrissey and My Bloody Valentine.

  19. Allow for multiple sets of rules depending on single/album/soundtrack/compilation

    I've always distinguished between singles and full albums.

    Singles sit in the root folder, and take the form <artist> - <track name>. I do keep the meta-data accurate, so I can still tell what album the single comes from and what its track number is (and of course I want the album art), but the filename is structured to allow quick windows explorer parsing.

    Albums are organized by artist: music\<artist>\<album>\<track number> - <track name>. Of course, compilations and sound tracks are another matter.

    It would be nice to be able to designate tracks as part of an album, singles, soundtracks,…

  20. 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.
